Elizabeth Ann Campbell Missing – Help Locate Elizabeth Ann Campbell
Thirty-three years ago this week, a Lampasas woman disappeared, and her fate remains a mystery.
Elizabeth Ann Campbell was last seen late on the night of April 25, 1988 at a 7-Eleven store in Copperas Cove.
Her disappearance remains one of the city’s oldest cold cases. In 1988 Campbell was living with her parents in Lampasas, attending Central Texas College and working at a 7-Eleven store in Killeen.
She was 5-foot-2, weighed just 97 pounds, wore a diamond Romance Wittnauer watch and a 10-karat gold ring and her ears were double-pierced
After work she went to her ex-boyfriend’s house to study for a final exam, but an argument started and sometime between 9:30 p.m. and 10 p.m., she left. At around 11 p.m. she used a pay phone at a 7-Eleven store on U.S. Highway 190 in Copperas Cove to call her brother whom she asked for a ride.
Her parents reported her missing the next morning, but police said they couldn’t accept a missing persons’ report for 72 hours, so they started to search for her on their own.
The sheriff there said he believed it was turned in sometime between April 1988 and January 1989, but because no records were kept, he didn’t know who found it or under what circumstances.
