On Sunday, May 19, 1991, Debby Arvanites left her home in Ashtabula, OH to hitchhike to Conneaut Lake Park, some 40 miles away in Crawford County, PA to attend a concert. According to Songkick.com the concert line-up included Foghat, Mitch Ride (Mitch Ryder?), Rare Earth and Molly Hatchet. That weekend was also when the park hosted the annual Harley-Davidson Rock 'N' Rally, with 5,000 to 10,000 bikers in attendance. Debby was seen by a family friend at the park, talking with friends. She never made it home to Ashtabula.
In late October 1996, based on a tip from an informer in 1992, PA State Police, with the assistance of a cadaver dog and handler from the Massachusetts State Police, conducted a search for Debby's body. The tip reportedly indicated that she had been killed and buried near a motel and a golf course. The search took place over the course of three days, but no sign of Debby was found.
