Missing Children Wiki


Gotlib was last seen in her hometown of Louisville, Kentucky on June 1, 1983. She was riding her red and white bicycle from the Bashford Manor Mall back to her family's residence between 5:30 p.m. and 6:00 p.m.

Her bicycle was later found propped up against a brick pillar outside of Bacon's Department Store in the mall. She never arrived home and has not been heard from again. The mall was across the street from her Gerald Court home. Police think this was a non family abduction. They have had over forty suspects over the years.

Many of whom have since died. 3 days after her disappearance police bloodhounds tracked her scent around a ditch near the mall and took them to an apartment occupied by Ester Okmyansky, who was the grandmother of the friend who was last to see Ann. She told police that Ann was never at her apartment. 3 weeks later a suspect was ruled out as he had an alibi even though he admitted to being a perv.
