GREELEY, Colo. (CBS4) – Dec. 20 marks the 34th anniversary of the disappearance of a 12-year-old girl in Greeley. Jonelle Matthews was last seen going into her home just after 8 p.m. on Dec. 20, 1984.
Police say they continue to investigate her disappearance, hoping new advances in technology will help as they re-interview witnesses in the case.READ MORE: Ballpark Shooting: Michael Close Pleads Not Guilty By Reason Of Insanity In Death Of Isabella Thallas, Family Says
Police still do not know what happened to Matthews after friends dropped her off at her home, 320 43rd Avenue Court, after singing in a Christmas concert at Franklin Middle School. She may have been home alone for a half hour before police believe she was kidnapped, but they never found any proof — not a chance sighting, never a suspect named, and her body has not turned up, baffling investigators for years.READ MORE: Stimulus Check Update: When Might Your $1,400 Economic Relief Payment Arrive?
