During the autumn of 1984, the Pozars made arrangements for their trip and bought plane tickets to fly on October 30. They never made their flight; their tickets were never used.

The Pozars owned two dogs, an Akita and a mixed breed, and normally boarded them at a kennel while they were in Hawaii. They made arrangements to drop the dogs off at the kennel on October 29, but never showed up. Their dogs have never been found.

Tessie and Frank had a camper and kept it in storage in a Spokane warehouse. The last time anyone saw them was when they took their camper to the warehouse. An unidentified individual came and took it before 7:00 p.m. on October 29. The camper was parked in the long-term lot at the Spokane International Airport before 1:00 a.m. on October 30.

Tessie and Frank didn't have a telephone at their Hawaii residence and didn't keep in regular touch with their Spokane friends and relatives while they were there, so no one realized they were missing for weeks.

The Pozars do not have criminal records and, other than their property investments, didn't have any substantial debts in 1984. Neither of them habitually carried large amounts of cash.

They owned a laundromat and several motels in the Spokane area and left behind an estate of about $500,000. Investigators believe they probably met with foul play.

Frank Jr. admitted to taking his parents' money, but said he only did it to maintain the Spokane Street Motel in their absence. He moved into the motel within days of his parents' disappearances, claiming they had given their permission for him to live there.

Frank Jr. told his sister, Rose, as well as others, that their parents were sailing, but not in Hawaii. He said he didn't know what cruise line they were with.

Tessie was angry with him about it and Frank Jr. became estranged from his parents; he refused to speak to them at all after July 1984 and would run away if he saw them on the street. Tessie and Frank Sr. refused to provide him with any further financial support.

Frank agreed to take a lie detector test, but not with the police. Two local newspapers paid for it. In the middle of the exam, Frank stopped and refused to cooperate any further. Based on the partial results, the polygraph examiner believed he either did something to his parents himself, or knew who had. Authorities believe Frank Jr. probably murdered his parents.

After their disappearances, items the Pozars would have taken to Hawaii were found in their son's possession, and their packed suitcases were located in the motel basement. Frank Jr. maintains his innocence and he has never been charged in connection with his parents' disappearances.

He was in and out of jail in the years after 1984 and lost touch with Rose, and the police don't know his current whereabouts. His last known location was Washington, D.C.

Tessie only had a sixth-grade education, and Frank's education ended after his sophomore year at high school. Rose continues to operate their motel, having turned it into apartments. The Pozars' cases remain unsolved.
