    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Connie Christine Smith was last seen picking daisies as she walked along U.S. Route 44 in Salisbury near the intersection of U.S. Route 44 and Belgo Road. She appeared to be looking for a ride.

    Earlier that day, Connie had walked down the driveway that winds through Camp Sloane, the Salisbury summer camp where she was staying. She was going to the camp dispensary to return an icepack she had borrowed the previous evening after she fell out of the tent and hurt her hip. Instead, leaving the icepack in her tent, she set off for the nearby village of Lakeville. When she hadn't returned almost three hours later, camp officials called state police.

    Despite massive search efforts she has never been found.

    This Case is Very strange! Left the "Icepack" to go to the "Village" from "Summer Camp". So it was an Organization of some kind in charge of the Camp. Therefore, Adults in Charge. Why was She allowed to go?. It dosen't say She left without anyone's knowledge. And then why wouldn't an Adult go with Her?! She was only 10. And in 1952, 10 Yr Olds were generally 10 Yr Olds. Didn't return in 3 Hrs. Then there was concern. Something seems off, Within the "Camp". Is it possible when She "Fell" She received a more serious injury resulting in Her Death?. "Head" injury or "Internal Bleeding"?. Seems far fetched. But the "Camps" actions don't seem right.

    O.K. do You know what they are basing that on? The initials carved into one if her items wouldn't match. And though possible, From Camp in "Connecticut" to "The Grand Canyon"?. The Killer certainly would be taking a BIG risk traveling that far with her and/or her "Body".
