The 19 year old left her house on Brugg Street in Belen, New Mexico to go on a bikeride at 09:30 on the morning of September 20, 1988...


She took her mother's bike because her own was damaged..


She was last seen riding her mother's neon pink Huffy mountain bicycle with yellow control cables & sidewalls on Highway 47 in Valencia County, at approximately 11:45a.m. Calico biked the route daily during her routine 36-mile ride...


Around 11:45, witnesses observed a 1953 Ford pickup truck,dirty white or light gray -in color,with a white homemade shell,following Tara,who was wearing headphones, down the unpopulated stretch of highway where she was riding, but no one saw the abduction...


The bike, a pink Huffy, has never been found.. She was 2 miles from home at the time of the sighting..


The small, cracked plastic window of the Sony Walkman was recovered 19 miles east of N.M. 47 near the remote John F. Kennedy campground..

.

Calico's mother believes that her daughter deliberately discarded the items as a way to mark her trail..


Detectives also identified bike tracks on the north side of the shoulder of N.M. 47, near the place the cassette tape was found, where a scuffle might have taken place...

Investigators: No clues from new Calico & Henley mailings..


http://www.newsherald.com/news/mailings-79217-calico-new.html


PORT ST. JOE — Photos and envelopes that revived a 20-year-old mystery after they arrived at a Florida Freedom newspaper in August 2009 provided no additional clues,investigators said this week,.


The photos were in envelopes postmarked in Albuquerque, N.M.,and several of those were postmarked June 10, the 20-year anniversary of the discovery of a disturbing Polaroid photo in a Port St. Joe convenience store parking lot...


The photo showed a young woman,believed by some to be Tara Calico,and a young boy identified as Michael Henley..


Their hands were tied behind them and they were gagged with duct tape..


The photo was discovered shortly after a white-paneled van had left the parking lot..Police never made a connection between the van and the disturbing image...


The most recent photos,at least one of which was postmarked in August,were of a boy resembling Henley, with a gag-looking ink stainover his mouth..


None of the letters contained a return address or anote indicating the child’s identity..


With the discovery of the latest photos,Tara Calico’s mother renewed her insistence that it was her daughter in the original photo..Even though FBI analysts ruled out Calico as the woman in the Polaroid..


Calico’s mother insisted Calico and the woman in the Polaroid had the same birthmark,according to a television news station in New Mexico...


The original Polaroid had received national attention when it aired on the television program :


“America’s Most Wanted.”
