On the night she disappeared from Brockton, Massachusetts, 16 year-old Jennifer Lynn Fay was supposed to babysit her younger brother and sister.  The vivacious teenager, described as a "social butterfly, [who] was always so happy" got a cousin to cover for her while she went out with friends.

It was the night of November 14, 1989.  For nearly 27 years, Fay has remained missing.  Her family and investigators believe there are people who know what happened. They hope someone has the courage to come forward and give her family the answers they deserve.

After getting her cousin to babysit, Fay went out, but returned home later with a male friend.  He felt sick and left.  Undeterred, Fay left by herself to go to a party. 

Her family and investigators believe she was abducted and may have known the person or persons who took her.  

Although many have been interviewed regarding her disappearance, others have kept quiet. Her mother believes some of Fay's "closest friends are hiding the truth, fearing retribution for themselves or their families." 

According to Charlie Project, Fay's circle of friends and acquaintances may have included individuals who were involved with drugs and other illegal activities.  

One of the most recent tips, suggested that Fay died or was killed and buried on private property in Brockton.  According to private investigator, Michelle Taylor Littlefield, Fay may have "never left her neighborhood that evening." 

Despite continued efforts, there is still no resolution.

Her family established The Jennifer Lynn Fay Foundation for Missing Children as a non-profit organization that promotes awareness and raises reward funds for cold missing persons cases.
