The night of her disappearance, due to circumstances, Lynn was working alone at the Barefoot Peddler, a little tiny store that sold beer and groceries just five minutes from the Burdicks’ home in Florida Ma.
The last time anyone spoke with her was over the phone when Lynn said she had to help a person with some stuff.
Her father, Brian, called the store around 8:30 p.m. to see if Lynn needed a ride home when her shift ended at 9:00. Lynn didn’t answer. They thought she might have just been busy and could not get to the phone.
A local person went into the store after that and called them after he found the store vacant. Police were called in, they found that money was missing from the register.
At the time of her disappearance, Lynn was described to be about 5’5” tall and had dark brown straight hair and glasses. She was last seen wearing a McCann school jacket and class ring, and jeans.
