Rozlin and Fawn Abell were teenagers in Bethany, OK, in 1985 when they disappeared. Family and friends think they could have met with foul play.

Friend seeks answers

Rozlin Abell was a petite girl, standing 4-foot-11 and weighing about 90 pounds.

She had worked at a Del Rancho restaurant on the south side of Oklahoma City and had attended U.S. Grant High School.

Fawn Abell also was a small girl, about 5-foot-1 inch and weighing about 100 pounds.

Both had brownish-blond hair.

Warfield said the chances are slim the sisters, if still alive, would contact their family today to explain where they have been.

“The family wants closure, like anyone would,” Warfield said.

Rozlin Abell was “a spitfire,” said Michelle Caudle, of Nicoma Park, who knew the girls.

Online effort

Caudle, 45, lived with the Abell family for a while when they were growing up in south Oklahoma City. She has started a Facebook page for information about the girls.

She said the sisters were frequent hitchhikers. Caudle thinks they were hitchhiking and “ran into foul play.”

“Rozlin was tiny, but she had an attitude, a temper,” Caudle said. Rozlin and Caudle had dropped out of high school, she said.

“Fawn was more mellow,” she said.

Caudle said she hopes her Facebook page helps solve the case.

A few people have sent her messages on Facebook, saying they thought they spotted the women recently, but it wasn't the Abells.

A psychic sent a message saying Rozlin is dead, but Fawn is living in California.

“I loved them. I want to know what happened. Anybody missing is important, but these girls were important to me because they were part of my life,” Caudle said.
