    Niki was last seen at her grandparent's home, where she lived, in Albany, Oregon on July 16, 1969. She is believed to have initially left of her own accord.

    In September of that year, she called family friends trying to get in touch with her grandparents. She said she was in New York, had a job, and was alright. She has not been heard from since.

    Missing Niki

    Niki Diane Britten ran away from her Albany home one week before her 16th birthday in July 1969.

    Her mother, Nancy Mahaffey of Albany, has been looking for her ever since.

    Niki had been living with Nancy’s parents at the time and Mahaffey was getting settled with her new husband.

    “Mother didn’t tell me for three weeks she had run away,” she said.

    Her daughter had a history of running away, and Mahaffey suspects her mother thought Niki would come back, as she always had before, and didn’t want to cause any unnecessary alarm.

    After Niki ran away in July 1969, her mother says Niki called family friends in September during Labor Day weekend, thinking her grandparents would be there. When they weren’t, she told the friends she was working in New York and doing fine.

    That was the last time they heard from Niki.

    Long after Niki disappeared, a strange note signed by “Niki” surfaced at Nancy’s parents’ house.

    Nancy isn’t sure if it really was from Niki, stopping by her grandparents house when they weren’t home, or if her mother wrote it as a way to make herself feel better.

    In it, “Niki” wrote not to worry about her. She said she had “been to a lot of places” and was living with “some people in a big old house.”

    She said she “might come home someday but right now I have to do what’s right for me.”

    The letter was somewhat disjointed and didn’t sound like Niki, her mother said.

    “It looks a lot like my mother’s writing, but all of us have similar handwriting,” Mahaffey said of the women in her family.

    She'd be about 63 years old now. Hmmm.

    Her DNA has been submitted to NamUS, so that's good.

    Very suspicious all around. It says she called "family friends" and said she was in NYC...I wonder how confident the friends were that they were actually talking to her. Unfortunately, the grandmother's behavior is very suspicious; however, this is all based on one article.
