Cindy was last seen on August 4, 1981, at the law office where she worked on East Manhattan Boulevard in Toledo, Ohio. The law partners arrived back at the office after a meeting at noon to find the radio on and their desks prepared for the day. Anderson left her romance novel open on her desk to the only violent scene in the book, where the heroine was abducted at knife point. There was no sign of her elsewhere in the building and there were no signs of a struggle. Her purse and keys were missing, but her car was locked in the parking lot outside the office. She always kept the doors to the office locked. A buzzer had been installed at her desk to alert the shop next door in case of trouble. This was due to strange and harassing phone calls she had been personally receiving. She was last seen wearing a white V-neck dress with pink pinstripes, cinnamon-brown Leggs's pantyhose, and beige open-toed ankle-strap sandals. She has a chicken pox scar on her forehead and a one-and-a-half-inch scar on her right knee that is shaped like a fishhook.
