The Pennsylvania State Police, Troop E - Franklin Station continue their investigation into the disappearance of Doris Jean Stalker.
Doris Stalker, of Hilliards, PA, Washington Twp., Butler County, was last seen on Monday, November 28, 1983 in the parking lot of an Emlenton store.
Mrs. Stalker and her husband had reportedly driven to a pharmacy in Mariasville, PA to have a prescription filled, but found that the pharmacy was closed.
They then went to the (former) Super Duper market in Emlenton, PA along River Ave., Emlenton Borough, Venango County.
Mr. Stalker went into the store while Doris waited in the car. He said he was only in the store for approximately six or seven minutes.
When he returned to the vehicle at around 8:00pm, the passenger side door of the car was open, and Doris was gone. Her purse was still in the car.
The following day, state police, volunteer firefighters and bloodhounds searched the area around the supermarket and scuba divers searched the nearby Allegheny River, but no trace of Doris was found.
Stalker was 54 years old at the time of her disappearance. Her physical description is 5’0”, 100 lbs., brown eyes, and dark brown hair which was worn short.
