Mary Jane Barker – Unsolved Missing Persons

On February 25, 1957, Mary Jane Barker, a 4-year-old girl from Bellmawr, New Jersey went missing along with her playmate’s dog.

After an extensive search throughout the city, dubbed by the press as “the largest search in South Jersey”, her dead body was discovered by her playmate in the closet of a vacant house near her home on March 3. The dog bounded out of the closet, seemingly unharmed.
