Details of Disappearance
Lilly was last seen heading to meet friends in North San Juan, California on September 26, 1992. She had an argument with her mother, Rachel Wind, and a family friend picked her up outside a Mother Truckers store on San Juan Ridge. She was never heard from again.

Twice in the first five months after Lilly's disappearance, Rachel received collect calls from someone identifying herself as Lilly. Both times the caller hung up before Rachel could speak to her. It has not been confirmed that the caller was her daughter.

Lilly had a troubled family life prior to her disappearance. Rachel had separated from Lilly's father, who was abusive. She got involved with another man and had a son, Toby, by him, but was she going to separate from Toby's father in September 1992. Rachel stated that Lilly disliked Toby's father.

Lilly was reportedly sexually involved with a local 29-year-old man at the time she went missing. There were rumors that she was pregnant when she vanished, but these have not been confirmed. Rachel believes Lilly's boyfriend, who has not been publicly identified, was involved in Lilly's disappearance. He has been arrested numerous times, but not for violent or drug-related offenses.

Lilly enjoyed drawing and writing poetry in 1992. She was in the eighth grade and wanted to be a model when she grew up. Her case remains unsolved.
