Distinguishing Characteristics Biracial (Asian/Caucasian) female. Brown hair, brown eyes. Diane has a one-inch scar on her forehead. She is of Vietnamese descent.
Details of Disappearance Diane left her family's residence in Kennewick, Washington on June 18, 1985 to visit friends in Seattle, Washington. She joined a 21-year-old friend, Molly A. Purdin (sometimes referred to as Molly Purdin-Clary), sometime during the day and both females were last seen in King County, Washington in the late afternoon hours.
A photograph of Purdin is posted with this case summary. Her body was discovered nearly one month later July 1985, off Index-Galena Road near Milepost 8 in King County. She was a victim of homicide; she had been raped and killed by a blow to the head.
There was no trace of Diane and she has never been heard from again. She was presumed to be a runaway until Purdin's remains were discovered.
Diane is the offspring of a white American soldier, Elsworth Robbins, and a Vietnamese mother, Dung "Nancy" Robbins. When she was twelve years old, Diane told her mother that her father had sexually abused her. Elsworth was convicted of the crime and Nancy separated from him. It was approximately a year later that Diane disappeared.
Foul play is suspected in Diane's disappearance due to the circumstances involved in her case. Her disappearance and Purdin's murder remain unsolved.
