1. Her father was the last person to see her alive.


Amy Sue Pagnac, shown here in an age-progressive photo, would be 41 today. 

According to Press & News, Amy Sue Pagnac was with her father, Marshall Midden, when they stopped at the Holiday gas station in Osseo, Minnesota. Her father said that they were going on a day trip to the family property in Isanti County when he stopped for gas. According to him, Amy waited inside of the car while he went inside to use the restroom. When he came back out, he said, Amy had “disappeared.”

2. Her mother is reportedly still “frantic” with worry about her daughter’s fate.

As one can imagine, Amy Sue Pagnac’s mother is living every parent’s worst nightmare: having a missing child. KARE 11 spoke to Amy’s mother shortly after the Jacob Wetterling story made headlines, and she said that she had missed all the important milestones in her daughter’s life. This thought, she said, made her angry but more than anything else, it made her sad.

“We missed her graduation. We missed her first date. We missed her going to college," said Susan Pagnac. "It would be wonderful if we could have her 40th birthday with her. The last birthday we had was when she turned thirteen. We lost a whole lot of birthdays."


Susan went on to say that Amy, who suffered from seizures, wouldn’t have “run away” from her father or left the car. Rather, Susan believes that she was abducted.
