The Disappearance of The Lyon Sisters. Maryland 1975.

Shiela Lyon and her younger sister Katherine departed from their family's residence in Kensington, Maryland on March 25, 1975 between 11:00 AM- 12:00 PM. The girls were walking to the Wheaton Plaza Shopping Center in Wheaton, Maryland located on the corner of University Boulevard and Veirs Mills Road. The sisters were on spring vacation from school and wanted to see the Easter exhibits at the mall, as well as have lunch at The Orange Bowl Restaurant .
A neighborhood child saw the girls outside the restaurant at approximately 1:00 PM. and told investigators they were speaking to an unidentified middle-aged man wearing a brown suit. The man was carrying a briefcase with a tape recorder inside. There were also other children around who were speaking into a microphone he was holding. The witness' description of the man led authorities to view the unknown person as a prime suspect in the Lyon sisters' case and a sketch of the individual was created.
The final confirmed sighting was when a friend stated that the girls were walking westward down Drumm Avenue near Devon Street between 2:30 - 3:00 PM. When Katherine and Sheila hadn’t returned to the residence by 7:00 PM, authorities were summoned and an extensive search was conducted. No evidence of the Lyon sisters' whereabouts could be located.
