On August 4, 2006, Lori Boffman was excited to win $1,000 in the Ohio lottery and was quick to host a large dinner party for her daughter who was home from university and her son who was visiting from Cincinnati. She visited a store with an unknown male around 4:00am on August 5, placing an order for $500 worth of food, but never arrived the next day to pay or pick up the food.

She did however go to the party (a cookout at a nearby park) on August 5; although why no one went to get the food is unclear.

According to one account (Link), Lori drove to a friend’s home after the party to leave some of the left-overs and dropped of the friend. Lori left to change clothes but planned to return shortly.

Most other accounts say she left her home on Holly Drive in Gerard, Ohio around 6:30pm following the party. She was driving her car (Blue 1992 Mercury Sable) and was accompanied by another individual. Friends and family say Lori seemed to be usually upset, crying and overly-emotional.

When they left, she was driving haphazardly. The behavior was concerning enough that her friend asked to get out of the vehicle, and Lori drove off alone.

Lori was diabetic and was still adjusting to new medications that may have contributed to the situation. She did not take anything with her, leaving behind her purse, ID, and medications.

Her car was found around 3:12am (Link) on August 6 in Youngstown, Ohio in the front yard of a library. Although the keys were still in the car and it was running, the door was open and Lori was gone. The car had been involved in some sort of small accident where it ran off the road through a residential lawn, hitting a swing set, before crashing into wall of the library. After which it appears Lori abandoned the car. Damage was mainly on the passenger side of the vehicle.

Neighbor’s living in the area of the library reported hearing some noises around 3:00am, which may have been when she hit the tree.

She has not been found or seen since that time.
