Aug 24, 2019

An Ohio Mysteries/Akron Beacon Journal/ crossover​
In the summer of 1979, 19-year-old Ricky Beard and 17-year-old Mary Leonard, teen sweethearts from Akron's North HIll neighborhood went on a date to a drive-in movie. They left early, telling friends they needed to be home in time for curfew. But Ricky and Mary are never seen by their loved ones again.​
For six years, police, private investigators, friends and family search for the couple, chasing down leads and following tips that ranged from Ricky and Mary being alive and well and living in another state, to having been murdered and buried near the banks of a river.​
