WARRENTON, Ore. (AP) — One of the North Coast’s biggest mysteries is no closer to being solved than it was 30 years ago.

Joanie Leigh Hall of Warrenton, Ore., vanished shortly after school on Sept. 30, 1983. The police report states she got a ride in a car with another student to the local Mini Mart, where she bought a Coke and left the store on foot.

The 17-year-old was then supposed to help tutor kids and grade papers for her aunt, a third-grade teacher. But she never made it.

Hall’s cousin, Valerie Alexander, told the Daily Astorian that someone knows something, and all the family wants is to know where she is so they can put her to rest.

A candlelight vigil will be held Monday.
