Case #: 09-043045
Patricia Depunte or Patty as friends often called her, a 32 year old beautician from Pleasantville, New Jersey was last seen on March 18, 1990. She was reported missing to the Atlantic City Police Department. She is between 4’8 – 4’11, 95 lbs, blonde hair and blue eyes. Last seen wearing a white shirt with blue jeans and high heels. One source I found stated she may have also been wearing a jade ring.
On March 17th, 1990, Patricia went to a place called the Irish Pub on St. James Place in Atlantic City, near the boardwalk. While inside, she was seen arguing with two females as she was sitting next to a Caucasain man in his early 30’s. She then asked this man for a ride home and was seen leaving the pub with him sometime between 2:00 and 3:00AM. The man was identified (and it turned out he was married) and his car was impounded for a forensic inspection. This man stated that he dropped Patty off a few blocks away from the pub at 3AM in the pouring rain. (sources vary on the exact time and location Patty was supposedly dropped off at, one article reads that she was dropped off 3 blocks south of the pub, while another source states she was dropped off half a block from her apartment. I have linked both articles below.)
Patricia was born on April 14, 1957, she grew up in Pleasantville, and graduated from Pleasantville Highschool. She was single but an outgoing person, and she occasionally drank heavily. However, she was responsible at her job and kept in regular contact with family.
Her case is still unsolved.
Dental records are available.
