Three young women, all last seen hitchhiking, all disappeared.  Two of the disappearances are the oldest, open cold cases in their respective states.

Paula Welden, a resident of Stamford, Connecticut and student at Bennington College in Vermont disappeared in 1946 after hitching a ride to walk a portion of the Long Trail.  Her disappearance sparked the largest search in Vermont’s history.  She was never found.

Two states away, Connie Smith of Wyoming left a Lakeville, Connecticut summer camp in 1952 and was last seen with her thumb extended trying to catch a ride to the village center.  A nationwide search resulted in hundreds of leads but not one solid clue as to what happened to her.

But there was another case involving a young woman . . . the details of which lay buried in old newspaper articles from more than seventy years ago.  Her disappearance was eventually treated as a lost-in-the-woods case by police, ignoring information from several witnesses who saw her thumbing a ride.

Several years before Paula Welden disappeared, Katherine Hull was visiting her grandmother in Lebanon Springs, New York and decided to go for a walk.  She was seen by at least three people hitchhiking along Route 22 but was never again seen alive.  Seven years would pass before a group of hunters came face-to-face with her skull, perched in the crotch of a tree, off a lonely road outside of Pittsfield, Massachusetts.What happened to these three young women?http://www.michaelcdooling.com/clueless%20information.htm My guest is the author of this book Michael C.
