Missing Carlene Sessions Tengelsen
Carlene, circa 1972
Missing Since 06/21/1972
Classification Endangered Missing
Age 16 years old
Height and Weight 5'9, 115 pounds
Clothing/Jewelry Description A man's blue dress shirt, blue jeans, a Mickey Mouse watch on her right wrist, a silver bracelet engraved with a Vietnam prisoner of war (POW)'s name on her left wrist, and her boyfriend's white gold class ring with his engraved initials.
Distinguishing Characteristics Caucasian female. Brown hair, hazel eyes. Carlene wore braces and ironed her hair straight at the time of her disappearance. She has a brown freckle on her neck below her chin, a small mole on her left cheek, and a chipped front tooth.
Carlene never returned home and has never been heard from again. Her mother realized she was missing when Carlene's younger sister called to say she hadn't been picked up from camp. Carlene's mother notified the police, but they refused to begin a search until 24 hours had passed.
The Pontiac was found at the shopping center at 1:45 a.m. the next day, parked in front of a Krispy Kreme donut shop. The windows were rolled down and the doors were unlocked, and Carlene's loved ones don't believe she would have left the vehicle in this condition. There was no sign of her at the scene. Carlene's sister believes the car was parked at that location only a short time before it was found.
Carlene's father was in Florida on business at the time of her disappearance; he traveled frequently as part of his job. Almost a year after Carlene disappeared, her family moved to North Carolina. They left a phone behind at their Macon home, hooked up to a search hotline number, and asked the new owners to answer it in case Carlene called. She never did, although the new owners kept the phone in service for two years.
In 1977, Carlene's parents returned to Macon and settled into a residence about four miles from their old one. Her younger sister also returned to Macon as an adult. Carlene's father is deceased and her mother died in 2016, but her sister is sister still alive and in the Macon area.
