Details of Disappearance Wilbur was last seen buying groceries at the supermarket in Angelica, New York at 5:45 p.m. on August 4, 1985. She has never been heard from again.

When authorities checked her house on west Main Street, the found her new 1985 Ford Escort was found parked in her driveway with groceries, including perishables such as milk, rotting inside it. Her house was unlocked, all the shades were drawn, and there was a half-eaten meal sitting out on the kitchen table.
In the summer of 2020, Sherk confessed to Wilbur's murder. He was in a Wyoming County, New York medical facility, being treated for terminal cancer, at the time. He told authorities he had buried Wilbur's body near the Almond Dam, an area which has flooded many times in the years since her disappearance.
