Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Mooney was last seen in Mabank, Texas sometime during the autumn months of 1961. Her husband told their two children that he had come home and found a note from her, saying she was leaving him.
They had been having many marital problems and fought frequently, sometimes physically, and Mooney had left her husband before, so her family did not question her husband's story at first.
Mooney's family has not heard from her since around the time she disappeared, when her mother got a letter from her. Her mother is not sure Mooney actually wrote the letter, however; she thinks the handwriting resembles her son-in-law's more than her daughter's.
There was a possible sighting of Mooney in Hughes Springs, Texas in the early 1970s, but this has not been confirmed. Her case remains unsolved. Foul play is possible in her disappearance.
