Margaret Kay Holst, who may have gone by the nickname “Margie,” was 18 years old when she went missing from Douglas County, Nebraska, and her whereabouts are still unknown more than four decades later.
The details in her case are few, but what has been reported is that Holst disappeared on the evening of Aug. 4, 1977—though some reports claim that she vanished on Aug. 15 of that same year.
Before she went missing, Holst wrote a note to her family, stating that she was going to meet up with a boy she had recently met. She left her Omaha home, which was located near North 25th Street, and never returned.
It was reported that the boy that Holst was supposedly with had dropped her off at home near her residence, but what happened afterward remains unknown.
She was reported missing when her relatives were unable to locate her or get in contact with her.
Holst, who was born on Oct. 19, 1958, is described as white or Caucasian, had red hair and hazel or blue eyes. At the time of her disappearance, she was five-foot-six inches tall and weighed 125 pounds.
She was wearing a red and black long-sleeve shirt with blue jeans and blue sandals, as well as a brown leather purse that she possibly had wrapped around her shoulder.
Holst also had a visible small scar on the center of her forehead.
