About this Case:

On Wednesday, August 16, 1972 Dolores House went to the Westland Shopping Center, located at 10403 West Colfax Avenue, Lakewood, Colorado, to run an errand. House later called her residence, which was located in the Green Mountain area, and informed her daughter that she was having car trouble and she would be home within a half an hour. House was never seen or heard from again. House's vehicle was later located in the Westland Shopping Center parking lot. Witnesses reported seeing House's vehicle, described as a 1967, Oldsmobile, Vista Cruiser, being towed into the Westland Shopping Center parking lot by a white over maroon, Ford Bronco. The unidentified driver or the bronco was described as a white, male, between 5'11" to 6'00" tall, weighing 160 pounds, with dark blonde hair, graying and thin on top.
