Missing : Clatsop County, Oregon

Joan Leigh Hall – White – Age 17 (1983)
Missing since September 30, 1983 from Clatsop County, Oregon
Endangered Missing
Age in 2011: 45

Date of Birth: February 24, 1966

Nickname: Joanie

5'6"; 120 lbs.
Short, brown, curly, hair that had been sun lightened to have blonde streaks; blue eyes

Her ears are pierced but it is unknown if she was wearing earrings at the time of her disappearance.

She was wearing a green hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, blue jacket and white and maroon sneakers. She was carrying a blue and white backpack and a brown purse.

Joanie was last seen at around 2:00 p.m. on September 30, 1983, walking down Main Street in Warrenton, Oregon. Her classmate, Michael K. Moore, told the authorities that he had given her a ride from Warrenton High School to the Warrenton Mini Mart on East Harbour Street in Downtown Warrenton where he dropped her off and then left. Joanie intended to grab a soda then walk the half-mile to the local grade school to help her aunt tutor the younger children in her 3rd grade classroom. It was confirmed by the store clerk that Joanie had been in the store, but she never made it to the grade school. She has never been seen again. What happened between the Mini Mart to the school?

There were several different sightings of Joanie that day, but the witnesses later changed their stories and said it was someone else. Authorities believe Joanie met with foul play.

The night before her disappearance Joanie had been elected the first female president of the Clatsop County Sheriff's Department Explorer Post. She wanted to be a police officer when she graduated. Joanie was reliable and had a good relationship with her parent’s; she always let them know where she was. There is no reason to think she ran away.
