Reward Offered For Clues In Woman’s 2002 Disappearance


What happened to Patricia Dudek?

It’s an open question, 20 years after the Salisbury woman went missing.

Salisbury Police and the FBI have announced a $10,000 reward for information that leads to a breakthrough in the search for her and why she disappeared.

Dudek was last seen January 7th, 2002. She was 33 at the time.

Salisbury Police provided this review of the case:

On January 10, 2002 at approximately 9:39 in the morning, members of the Salisbury Police Department
took a report for a missing person, who was identified as Patricia “Patty” Marie Dudek. At the
time of the report Ms. Dudek was described as a Caucasian female, 33 years of age, 5’7” in height, 130 pounds,
and having blonde hair and blue eyes. The complainant was a concerned family member and indicated that Ms.
Dudek had not been seen or heard from since the early morning hours of January 7, 2002 when she was
observed at her residence on the 500 block of Hemlock Street in Salisbury. At the time she went missing, Ms.
Dudek was the mother to three young children who are now grown and eager to learn what happened to their
mother all those years ago.

The circumstances surrounding Ms. Dudek’s disappearance are considered highly suspicious. The
Salisbury Police Department and the FBI are now conducting the investigation as if it were a homicide.
The investigation is ongoing and the Salisbury Police Department requests anyone with information
