Details of Disappearance
Agnes was last seen in Long
Branch, Pennsylvania sometime around 1986. A missing persons reported was filed
for her on October 1 of that year. She has never been heard from again, but her
Social Security disability benefit checks were cashed monthly from 1991 to 2002.
Agnes's husband, Edward Young, did not report his wife missing in 1986; it is unclear who did. A photograph of Edward is posted below this
case summary. In September 2001, he went to the Social Security office and
claimed Agnes had been lost in the September 11 attacks on the World Trade
Center in New York City. Officials were suspicious of his story and terminated
Agnes's disability benefits. The office attempted to contact her but could not
find her.
None of Agnes's relatives have seen her since 1985 or 1986. Edward
apparently told them she was had been committed to a mental institution in
Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, then was transfered New York after the Pittsburgh
hospital burned down. Authorities searched for Agnes in mental hospitals in
Pennsylvania, Ohio and New York, but could not find any recent records for her.
They obtained a warrant to search Edward's property for his wife's body. In May
2002, investigators got a second warrant and returned to Edward's home to search
it and interview him about Agnes's disappearance, but Edward had committed
Agnes's case remains unsolved and the circumstances surrounding her
disappearance are unclear.
