CID Seeks Information in 1975 Missing Person’s Case

Department of the Army Criminal Investigation Division

The U.S. Army Criminal Investigation Command, commonly known as CID, is seeking the public’s assistance while investigating the disappearance of Alice Fay (Jones) Jefferson, who reportedly went missing from Fort Campbell, Ky. in July, 1975.

Jefferson, believed to be 21-years-old at the time, was an Army spouse who resided on Fort Campbell with her Soldier husband and two small children. Her husband was a sergeant (E-5) assigned to Troop B, 2nd Squadron, 17th Cavalry Regiment, 101st Airborne Division, Fort Campbell, Ky. at the time of her disappearance.

In 2013, the now adult children contacted Army CID Special Agents, with the assistance of a private investigator, and reported the disappearance of their mother and requested an investigation into her disappearance. Jefferson’s husband was stationed at Fort Campbell from March, 1973 until July, 1975. The family lived in on-post housing and the children, six and seven years old at the time, resided with the couple most of that time and attended the on-post elementary school.

An African-American female, Jefferson’s family describes her at the time of her disappearance as being approximately 5 feet, 1 inch tall, 100-115 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. She sometimes wore wigs and had pierced ears and possibly an openfaced gold crown on a front tooth, and two extracted teeth.
