She was forever coordinating Scout and church activities. The family bought a trampoline that became a hot spot for children on her street. Now she was using the same energy to pass out fliers of Diana and Jenny's pictures, under the heading "MISSING." The Shawcrofts, who have been divorced for nearly 10 years, posted hundreds of fliers and faxed dozens more, enlisted the help of television stations and persuaded police agencies to launch a massive air search for a dark blue pickup that the girls were seen getting into. They ate little, slept less and gave nary a thought to what evil may have befallen Diana and Jenny. "All I think is, we will find them, we will find them." Kathy said. Deb and Bob Lueth hold the same hope, even though it has been two weeks since Diana and Jenny were seen last, and 10 days since the Lueths drove from Loveland with light luggage and heavy hearts. Atop a chest of drawers in their central Phoenix hotel room, they have placed the fliers of Jenny and Diana to keep their minds focused. Jenny beams from her Olan Mills studio photo, an expensive proposition she decided on as a 25th wedding anniversary present to her parents. "If I have to walk every inch of the desert and turn every grain of sand, we're going to do it," Deb said. "And Jenny knows that. She knows that in her heart."

A girl with a heart of gold. Knowing that, Deb couldn't help but pepper their conversations with typical motherly advice. Love you. Be careful. Watch out for the Ted Bundys out there, Deb often told Jenny. I will. Love you, too, Mom, Jenny would respond. Then came the phone call. Tina Shawcroft had sounded the alarm two days earlier to her parents. When her sister, Diana, and Jenny failed to come home the night of May 24, Tina phoned her father, who is divorced and lives in the east Valley, the next morning. The news worried Roger Shawcroft, who works at a car dealership. He tried to rationalize it. They went partying somewhere, perhaps drank a beer too many and had to sleep off the effects at a friend's house, he thought. By Sunday, Roger was panicking. Diana and Jenny had left home without their purses, with their uncashed paychecks inside; without a change of clothing; without cosmetics. They left no word to anyone. Diana's mother, Kathy, dropped everything at her Roseville, home and flew to Phoenij.
