The car was back in its space later that afternoon, but Evitts was never seen again. She was a legal secretary at a law firm. Her purse was found 10 days later, under a bridge in southeast Kansas City near Unity Village. Evitts, a former Kansas State University queen nominee, was happily married living in Overland Park, Kan., and had no romantic or financial entanglement. The couple had no children.
