Whatever happened to Pamela Hobley and Patricia Spencer?
Pamela Hobley, went missing in October 1969. She was seen walking with Patricia Spencer on River Road leaving school around 2 p.m. in Oscada, Michigan. Although they knew of each other they usually didn’t hang out together, but that night they did have one thing in common, they were going to their high school homecoming football game for Halloween, and a party afterwards.
There was a rumor that the teens had been buried in a barn in Wilber Township. The Oscoda Township Police Chief stated he heard the rumor, too when he was a teen. Now, as the police chief he decided to look further into the tip that came in 1986 about the teens, after he found no information that the tip had ever been acted on.
The tip said the girls were murdered by two men who buried them under Jack Searle’s barn on Brooks Road. After bringing in a cadaver dog, the dog did not alert, although the police chief stated it could be because the scent was no longer there after 16 years. There has been no further investigating of this site.
A witnessed stated he picked up the girls and dropped them off, but that witness has since died and for reasons not divulged the police have ruled out his information as being false.

Then in 2013, another witness came forward and said in 1969 he had given a ride to the girls and dropping them off at a gas station located at River Road and US-23.
“There is nothing, absolutely nothing about this in the case file,” David said.
