Police Find Woman Missing 42 Years — But Mystery Remains

Police have “solved” a decades-old missing person case — but the woman who vanished so long ago now has dementia and can’t explain her own disappearance.

New York authorities never thought they would solve the 42-year-old missing person case of Flora Stevens, but then a state police investigator contacted the Sullivan County Sheriff’s Office last month about some skeletal remains that might fit the vanished woman’s profile.
