Tara Calico never returned home from a bike ride.
Calico, who was 19 at the time, told her mother to call the police if she wasn’t back from her bike ride by noon on the day she went missing in September 1988. Calico never returned from her ride and was never seen again.
During her ride, onlookers shared that they saw a truck following Calico and harassing her, though they thought it was her friends playing a joke on her. All that was ultimately found was Calico’s broken Walkman on the side of the road.
Almost a year after her disappearance, a suspicious Polaroid was found in a Florida parking lot over 1,000 miles away from where she was last seen. The photo shows a young woman and a boy bound with their mouths taped shut. Calico’s mother believed it was her daughter. The FBI, on the other hand, was unable to verify whether or not it was her.
