Charlotte Rexroad Wyne

March 11, 1970 in Canton, Ohio a mother of three daughters and a son vanished from the streets of downtown Canton. There is not much information available about Charlotte or why she would simply walk away from her family. I don't believe the McKinley Hotel she was residing in is the same as the McKinley Grande Hotel in Canton today, and definitely did not have the amenities.

Reading the little I have been able to find out about Charlotte, questions abound. Why was she living in the hotel? Was she living their with her family or was she separated from them at the time? Why was she walking alone in the 400 block of East Tuscarawas Ave.? I know in 1970 that was not a safe place to be, I lived in Canton then.

What happened at 8:55 that night that she would be alone and walking in the dark, according to her husband? Did she just have enough of being a mother and wife? Was there trouble in the marriage? Did life just become too much for her and she simply hitched a ride into oblivion?

One small picture and very little information is all I have been able to find. I do know that there are four grown children of Charlotte who probably don't have the answers either, but I would bet that they are still searching for her, even if only in their hearts. I do know that they must have the same questions as I do. Where is Charlotte Wyne?

This may be a cold, cold case to some, but I would say that to the children left behind it is still foremost in their minds.
