Circumstances of Disappearance:
Unknown. Wilmer was last seen in
California on September 13, 1993. Wilmer was hitchhiking the nine
miles from the Hawkins Bar area of California to Willow Creek for a
possible job opportunity at a farm. She never arrived. She left all
her identification, clothes, address book, Bible, bank card and
sleeping bag at home. Wilmer led a counterculture hippie
lifestyle, including hanging with Deadheads, followers of the Grateful Dead band. Foul play is suspected.
NOTE: Wilmer's mother, Susan, assisted in creating federal legislation
aimed at requiring states to report information concerning
unidentified bodies into the National Crime Information Center (NCIC)
database. This procedure provides easier cross-referencing of missing
persons and unidentified victims in the US. The legislation, titled
Jennifer's Law, was signed into effect in 2000. She also founded
FOCUS, a support group for the families of missing children.
