Maria Anjiras

Maria Anjiras, 14, went missing on February 12, 1976, from Norwalk, Connecticut.

Maria was last seen at her home on Milwood Road in Norwalk, Connecticut. She was supposed to go to a vocal class that afternoon, and then go to a neighbor's house to babysit their child for the evening. Her father saw her at approximately 2:15 p.m. when he was leaving for work. 

Maria never showed up for her class or went the the neighbor's home at  5:00 p.m. as planned. Maria's parents say she was acting normal on the day of her disappearance. She had threatened to run away about two weeks before, but her father talked to her and came to a compromise. 

She left her house with some money she had taken, pajamas, sweaters, and a pair of jeans.

After she vanished, her blue English Racer bicycle was found near St. Mary's Lane, about a mile from her house. It was abandoned at a friend's house, but the girl told police she had not seen or heard from her that day. 

In August 1976, a classmate stated they saw her at a bar on Westport Avenue. The girl told Maria to go home. Maria responded, "I know," and started crying. Maria was with a man from Charter Oaks Motorcycle Club. Police were able to find him in Bethel, Connecticut. No other information is available.

Maria was an artistic young girl who took drama and ballet classes at Norwalk High School. Her parents have both passed away in the 1980's. Her sister and brother are still alive and hope for answers.
