On the morning of December 23, 1974, Lisa Renee Wilson, 14, Julie Ann Moseley, 9, and Mary Rachel Trlica, 17, travelled to the Seminary South Shopping Center in Fort Worth, Texas to do some shopping. Julie was the sister of Renee’s boyfriend, Terry Moseley.

Rachel and Renee had initially planned to go shopping with Terry, but he had made other plans. Julie wanted to go along with them, but was told she needed permission from her mother. She was able to get permission, but was told she needed to be home by 6:00pm. Renee was excited about attending a Christmas party that evening with Terry and wanted to be home early to get ready.

At 12:00pm, the girls visited the local Army/Navy surplus store to get some jeans Renee had on layaway. They then drove to the shopping center and parked near Sears .

Witnesses would later claim they’d seen the girls inside the mall throughout the afternoon. However, it’s never been confirmed. Keep in mind this was the 70s. Most young girls had long straight hair. And since it was Christmas time, the mall would be full of teenagers out for Christmas break.

Rachel’s Oldsmobile was found in the parking lot around 6:00pm. It was locked, and there was single present on the backseat floorboard. However, there was no trace of the girls or any indications of a struggle. Nearly five decades later, no one has ever seen the girls again.
