It’s been nearly 25-years since 21-year-old Elisha Eittreim seemed to vanish into thin air. Since February 27, 1994, Eittreim’s family hasn’t heard from her; her bank cards and social security number were never used again and her last paycheck was never deposited.

The Details of Elisha Eittreim’s Disappearance

  • Elisha Eittreim was living in Napa, California. She graduated from Vintage High School and worked at a gift shop in Napa.
  • On February 27, 1994, Elisha Eittreim was visiting with a male at his home. Sources vary on whether this man was a boyfriend, a friend, or just an acquaintance she had met recently on a bus.
  • At the time of her disappearance, Eittreim was described as being 5’6, 118 pounds with blonde hair and green eyes.
  • Sometime between 8:30 and 9:30 pm, Eittreim left the unidentified male’s house to go home.
  • Sources vary on which block of Brown Street she left from. One states 500 block, another 600.

It’s not clear which route Eittreim would’ve taken, but according to the last person who saw her, Eittreim was en route to her home on Patchett Street

  • Eittreim planned to stop at an ATM and Val’s Liquor (located on Third Street) before going home. Her house was located on the 800 block of Patchett Street.
  • Eittreim never arrived at home; she also never made a withdrawal from her bank account. No witnesses saw her at the liquor store that night.
  • The unidentified male who last saw her grew concerned 15 minutes after she left and went to look for her.

  • The unidentified male later showed up at Eittreim’s home and gave her family some pieces of her clothing and other personal items.
  • According to the man, Eittreim had left his house wearing his clothes: beige men’s Levi pants, a gold drawstring jacket and a t-shirt.
  • Although Eittreim took Lithium and Zolax to control her depression/bipolar disorder, her family doesn’t believe she was suicidal at the time of her disappearance. Authorities haven’t ruled out suicide, but they believe she met foul play that night.
  • Today, Elisha Eittreim would be 46 years old. She has not been in contact with her family and her social security number has yet to be used since the time of her disappearance.
