In 1980 Judith (Judy) Hofferman went missing. It was a cold and snowy night... Her car was later found at Dulles Airport. There has been no trace of her since. All checks on her Social Security Number and Credit Cards have shown absolutely no activity.

There has been no mention in the media, no search efforts for this young mother of two small children... A boy (Approx age 7) and toddler girl (Approx age 5).
Judy was married at the time to a Fairfax Attorney whom she met in High School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Judy's parents had passed away in a car accident, leaving a sizable inheritance to Judy, their sole heir. From all accounts, Judy used her inheritance to put her husband through Law School, and to build her dream home in the desirable Washington DC suburb of Fairfax Station. The over 4000 square foot home situated on several quiet, wooded acres was the last place anyone has seen Judy alive. Judy loved animals, and raised parrots, pedigreed cats, had a German Shepard, and even had a goat, she was all to happy to share the fresh milk with you if you were so inclined. Judy not only raised Cats and Birds, but if she sold an animal to you, she also continued to offer her expert advice and support. I have always searched online for Judy, and have found it very odd, that after 25 years when I first realized that there was absolutely no trace of any search efforts for this woman, even on missing persons websites such as "Namus" or the DOE Network... Not even a mention on Fairfax VA Police website... And then to make things even odder, everything I posted online was wiped away.

I started posting, contacting the Cold Case Detective and doing all the research I could... I felt so sorry for Judy, and her children... Two young, innocent children that had the love of their mother... a sweet loving woman. Their lives were forever fractured by a completely self absorbed, selfish egotistical monster... They were told their mother simply left them in the middle of the night, to pursuit a life of chasing parrots in the Amazon... Yet there was no sign of any flights booked in any Airport... Those that new Judy, new she wouldn't, that she couldn't have left her two beautiful children, or her beloved animals. Thank you for taking the time to read this post! if you have any information on this case please contact the Fairfax County VA Cold Case unit. and share on this site.
