humm yep thats true... but going back in time to the 50's most people didn't travel allot and applied (I think it was 6 months old or 1 year old at that time) for the ss.... unusually it will be the same state of birth but like you, it can be another state.

Actually here is the exact info on that:

Prior to 1972 the AREA designated the state in which the subject applied for their card, while after 1972 it showed the state in which the applicant resided at the time they applied. Now it is determined by the ZIP code in the mailing address on the person's application for a card.

She dissapeared from a high school for troubled children when she was 17, but by the time the school informed my grandparents she was 18. The police did a shoddy investigation and determined that since there was no evidence of foul play they could not go any further.
As for the ss# I don't have it, but from the investigation my family has done, there was a time when she suddenly stopped using her ss# so that could mean a number of things. She could have died, gone into witness protection, or she could just be trying to not be found.

Just another note, Cynthia was born in Mass, not Vermont. The family moved to Vermont around 1965.

Thanks Bill but she can't post at Websleuths unless she has a missing person's report. Hopefully she will come back to let us know if there is one or not.

Due to her age when she went missing, there was no missing persons report filed. We are still trying to follow all leads possible though.

Do you know when the SS# trail ends?
You can enter her into our national missing persons database NamUs. Here is the link. They can help you with figuring out the last date she used the social. Someone from your family can try to get a missing persons report made once they figure out the date. If family has issues with law enforcement the NamUs case worker will try to reach out to them to get one. You will need her height, weight any scars etc.

I have never met her because I was born in 1991, but the family has been searching for her all this time and we would love any information anyone has.
Even if she does not desire to be contacted, If any information is known that could give us closer, we would like to know.
The picture below was taken when cindy was 14. I hope it rings some bells.
Sounds like she had a rough time as a teen. It's actually pretty common. I have a friend who tried to find her daughter that she gave for adoption in 1974, she ended up finding out that she went missing at age 14, probably killed by the adoptive father.

You should make an entry on Adoption.com. There are also adoption related FB pages where you can search. I have friends that are adoption advocates; so if you want to search on FB I can help.

Sounds like the birth and adoption were in Mass. These are the current adoption records law there. Check to see if you or her mother can leave contact info for Cynthia.

If a waiver is in place giving permission from both the adoptee and the birth parent, Identifying information can be released to an adult adoptee at age 21 and to birth parents. If the adoptee is under the age of 18 they may receive identifying information if he or she has the written permission of the adoptive parents.

MASSACHUSETTS - PARTIAL ACCESS to birth records STATE

Massachusetts Senate approved legislation (SB63) on May 1, 2007, allowing adopted people 18 years or older born before July 17, 1974 (when records were sealed) and the adoptive parents of those born after 2007 to obtain their original birth certificates (OBC).

Adoptees born after 2007 may obtain their OBC on and after reaching 18 years of age. Access to those born between July 17, 1974 and January 1, 2008, will be denied unless a probate court finds that the adoption record contains evidence of a birth parent's willingness to provide information about her or his identity to the adoptee.

Was there any investigation into your Aunt's disappearance?

The last know address on your aunt is from 1991

3/1957 (Age: 51)
Bennington, VT 05201


December 1991
This female ss# indicates they were born in VT.
Cynthia would have been 34 in 1991

SS#'s were given when a person worked, not given when born like now. That is a fairly new process. I got mine back around 1980 after I got my working papers at high school (age 15). You needed one to get paid by the employer. they gave me the SS form when I had my son in 1985, that was the 1st time I had seen it given at birth. I do not think it was mandatory though. When I had my daughter in 1993 I think it had to be mailed within 30 days of birth. Now I think you have to hand it in at the hospital. I wonder what laws are with home births lol
