Identifying Characteristics:

Circumstances of Disappearance:
Unknown. Molly dropped off an employment application at a Wendy's restaurant near 10th Street and Highway 465 in Indianapolis, Indiana at 7:00 p.m. on July 6, 2004. She also bought school supplies and supplies for her hobbies, and visited the school to drop one of the three classes she was taking at Indiana University. At 11:00 p.m., she made a call to a friend from a pay phone at Thornton's gas station in the 5700 block of Crawfordsville Road. The line disconnected when the friend picked up the phone, and Molly has never been heard from again. All of her personal belongings were left behind. She had taken her cell phone with her when she left her brother's apartment, and it was found later in the home, indicating that she made it back there. In October 2008, authorities announced that they were investigating the case as a homicide. John E. Shelton is considered a person of interest in her case, and is the last person known to have seen her. No criminal charges have been filed in Dattilo's disappearance, but in November 2010 John Shelton and his father Ed were found civilly liable for her wrongful death and were ordered to pay $3.4 million in damages to her family. John is currently imprisoned on unrelated charges; Ed's whereabouts are not known. Molly's case remains unsolved.
