Agency case #: B200225

Mary Ann Ruth Switalski last was seen at a carnival at St. Priscilla’s Catholic Church in Chicago, Illinois, on 7/15/1963. Two days after her disappearance, Mary Ann’s parents received a letter postmarked from Oak Park, Illinois, and believed to be from her. The letter (apparently in her handwriting, but not her writing style) stated that she was fine and planned to make some money to support them. No further contact was made. It is believed that Mary Ann may have been coerced to join a door-to-door sales group that was headed to California.

To provide or request additional information, please contact Detective Mark Czworniak, Chicago Police Department, at 312-744-8261 or mark.czworniak@chicagopolice.org or the FBI’s Violent Criminal Apprehension Program (ViCAP) at 800-634-4097 or vicap@leo.gov.
