    Carol in the mid-1950s (about a decade prior to her disappearance; more recent photos are unavailable)
    Missing Since: 06/02/1965
    Missing From: El Cerrito, California
    Classification: Endangered Missing
    Age: 25 years old
    Height and Weight: 5'0 - 5'5, 100 - 120 pounds
    Distinguishing Characteristics: Caucasian female. Brown hair. Carol wears very thick eyeglasses and would be nearly blind without them.
    Details of Disappearance
    Carol was last seen in El Cerrito, California on June 2, 1965. When her sister went to visit her at her trailer home the next day, she found coffee on the stove and the lights turned on, but Carol was gone. She has never been heard from again.

    Carol's husband, Harvey Arnold Norton, was arrested and charged with robbing a Sandia, Texas bank on July 14. He and a male accomplice stole thousands of dollars. When he was questioned about his wife, he said he'd argued with her and left her in a motel in Portland, Oregon on June 14, prior to his trip to Texas.

    Harvey's 1964 Lincoln was found abandoned in downtown Corpus Christi, Texas; inside were bloodstained flood mats, strands of human hair and a dirty shovel.

    Harvey served time in a federal prison in Kansas after pleading guilty to the bank robbery. In 1971, he went to an isolated trailer home in Marshall, Texas where two teenage girls were staying. He bound the girls and took their father's rifle, and when the boyfriend of one of the girls arrived, Harvey shot and killed the boy and then fatally shot himself.

    Due the circumstances of Carol's disappearance, foul play is suspected. Her case remains unsolved.

    If the husband said he last saw her in Portland, I'm going to bet she's not anywhere near Portland. :(

    Yeah :sadness: I think the husband was involved. The only thing that's weird to me is, the last time anyone heard from her/saw her was June 2nd. Her husband said he'd left her in a motel on June 14th. Very weird timegap.
