In the late 1960s and early 1970s, multiple young women and girls go missing in the Vernon-Tolland area of Connecticut. For years, investigators have wondered if these seemingly unrelated cases might share too strong a connection to be ignored. Three, in particular —Janice Pockett, Lisa White, and Debbie Spickler—bear striking similarities to each other, and have become known as the Vernon-Tolland Three. 

If you have any information about any of the following cases, you can call the Tolland County Cold Case Squad at 860-870-3228. Or you can contact the Vernon police at 860-872-9126.

  • Janice Pockett – Tolland, CT.
  • Kathleen Terry – Sturbridge, MA.
  • Lisa White – Vernon, CT.
  • Susan LaRosa – Vernon, CT.
  • Patricia Luce – Vernon, CT.
  • Debbie Spickler – Vernon, CT.

You can also contact the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children’s  24-hour hotline at 800 843-5678 for any information regarding the disappearances of Janice Pockett, Lisa White and/or Debbie Spickler.
