Details: Judy Hymes was a 22-year-old medical technician from Coral Gables, Florida. In 1965, she vanished. The day she disappeared, she contacted a friend and claimed that she was leaving work early that day to go shopping for a watch. She withdrew $300 from her bank account. Rumor had it that she was actually pregnant, and that a friend of hers had arranged an illegal abortion for her. It is believed that she paid for the abortion with the money she withdrew the last time she was seen alive. The fact that the abortion was performed illegally by an individual posing as a qualified physician led to speculation that she died as a result of it. Her body was never found. In 1990, an unidentified person called the Coral Gables Police Department with the claim that she was alive and living in Omaha, Nebraska.
Suspects: None known. George Hodjou, a Hungarian immigrant who posed as a doctor and ran an illegal abortion clinic in Coral Gables, was supposedly the man Judy was going to meet the day she vanished. He was later arrested for impersonating a physician. He jumped bail in 1966 and hasn't been seen since.
Extra Notes: The case was featured as a part of the January 2, 1991 episode.
Results: Unresolved. After Judy's mysterious dissappearance was featured on Unsolved Mysteries, an anonymous letter was received by the Coral Gables police department. It stated that she was indeed deceased, that her death was due to abortion complications, and that her body had been disposed of in Biscayne Bay. They now believe it is legit and have no explanation for the Nebraska phone call. They closed the case, but she has never been found.
