BARBARA LOUISE COTTON MISSING FROM NORTH DAKOTA SINCE 1981
Barbara Cotton was last seen in North Dakota in 1981. She was 15.
Cotton was last seen leaving a local restaurant and walking down Main Street in Williston, North Dakota on April 11, 1981. She was never heard from again. She had no personal belongings with her at the time of her disappearance.
Extensive searches for her body have yielded no results or evidence about her whereabouts. The primary suspect in her disappearance, a former boyfriend, is deceased.
This month marks the 30th anniversary of the disappearance of Williston's Barbara Cotton. Cotton, 15 years old at the time of her disappearance on April 11, 1981, was last seen leaving a local restaurant in the evening, on her way home.
Cotton is described as a white female with brown hair and hazel-brown eyes. At the time of her disappearance, she was 5 feet and 2 inches tall and weighed 100 pounds. Identifying characteristics are that her left ear is lower than her right ear and she has a dark brown mole on the upper right side of her chest. She would now be 45 years old.
Police first believed her to be a runaway, but when it was discovered that she took no belongings with her, a missing person's case was filed.
Cotton’s sister, Kathy Nulph, who was 13 at the time at Cotton's disappearance, said she's still working closely with the Center for Missing and Exploited Children and Williston Police Detective Mark Hanson.
"We're still with Missing Persons and Exploited Children and I keep in touch with detective Mark Hanson, who's been doing a really good job. Last year, I met with him and he has binders of information," Nulph said.
Sandy Evanson, then 17 years old, was a childhood friend of Cotton and remembers the night she went missing. Evanson thought that there was no way Cotton had run away, since she left her money, cigarettes and clothing at home.
Evanson recalled that Cotton's mother called late that night wondering if Evanson had heard from Cotton. Her mother told Evanson that after having dinner with Cotton and her boyfriend, the mother left. Her boyfriend had offered to walk Cotton home, but she declined and walked home alone.
Her boyfriend saw her walk from the Plainsman building to Reclamation Park where she had five blocks left to her home. Her path home that night would have led her on Main Street up Fifth Street and Sixth Avenue West.
The next day, Cotton's sister Kathy and brother Kent walked the path Cotton would have taken home, looking for clues and asking residents who lived on those streets if they had heard or seen anything.
No arrests were made in the case.
"Barb Cotton was my best friend along with her younger sister Kathy and older brother Kent. We did everything together from the time we grew up 'til the beginning of high school," Evanson said. "She was a very beautiful, sweet girl - shy to those she didn't know, but fun and full of laughter with those she did! I couldn't have asked to grow up with a better person."
Those with information are urged to call the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 1-800-843-5678 or the Williston Police Department Missing Persons Unit at 701-577-1212. ... See MoreSee Less

Based on demographics of our page there are a lot of areas we are not reaching. Based on the Amber alert being nationwide, we are missing at least Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Kansas, New Mexico and many more. Please if you can take her flyer to a printer like Staples or Office Max and have some printed up. Color or B&W and post in gas stations, truck stops, rest areas and other public places. We need her poster everywhere as she could be anywhere. It could very well be that she's being seen but it's not being called in because people simply don't know about her.
Thank you. #FindJaymeCloss ... See MoreSee Less
