Dona Mae Bayerl was last seen at her home in Muskego, Wisconsin on May 6, 1979. According to her husband she left the home after a quarrel, and drove off in the family car. The car was returned that night.
Detective Steve Westphal told TMJ 4:
“Apparently she had an argument with her husband at the time and she returned home after that argument and then at some point either left of something else happened to her and she was never seen from again,” said Detective Westphal.
According to The Doe Network, “police believe she did not leave of her own free will. Police found blood in the garage, determined to be Dona Bayerl’s. A circumstancial case was developed against a suspect, but no charges were issued, because of lack of evidence.
Dona was declared legally dead in 1986.”
Dona would be 77-years-old now. The detective asks anyone with possible information to call police, (262) 679-4130.
