    Disappearance
    By 1973, Converse was burnt out and depressed. The offices of The Journal of Conflict Resolution, which meant so much to her, left Michigan for Yale at the end of 1972, after being "auctioned off" without her knowledge. Her colleagues and friends pooled their money to finance a six-month trip to England for her in hopes of improving her mood, to no avail. Connie's mother requested that she join her on a trip to Alaska, and Connie begrudgingly agreed. Her displeasure with the trip appeared to have contributed to her decision to disappear. Around this same time, Converse was told by doctors that she needed a hysterectomy, and the information appeared to have devastated the musician.

    In August 1974, she wrote a series of letters to her family and friends, in which she mentioned her intention to make a new life somewhere else. In one of the letters, she wrote "Let me go. Let me be if I can. Let me not be if I can’t. [...] Human society fascinates me & awes me & fills me with grief & joy; I just can't find my place to plug into it." With her letter to Philip, Connie included a check and a request that he make sure that her health insurance was paid for and in good standing for a certain amount of time following her departure, but for him to cease paying the policy on a certain date.

    She was expected to go on an annual family trip to a lake, but by the time the letters were delivered, she had packed her belongings in her Volkswagen Beetle and driven away, never to be heard from again. The events of her life following her disappearance remain unknown. Several years after Connie left, someone told her brother Philip that they had seen a phone book listing for "Elizabeth Converse" in either Kansas or Oklahoma, but he never pursued the lead. About ten years after she disappeared, the family hired a private investigator in hopes of finding her. The investigator told the family, however, that even if he did find her, it was her right to disappear, and he could not simply bring her back. Since that time, her family respected her decision to leave, and ceased looking for her. Philip suspects she may have taken her own life—he specifically thinks she may have driven her car into a body of water—but her actual fate remains unknown.

    Geez. How sad. Even if she disappeared on her own accord, I would of pursued the leads just to make contact to make sure she was O.K.
