The man with the telescope would later tell authorities that he witnessed a shirtless bearded man dressed in a mosquito net, a wig, and jeans come up to Heather.
He was around 6 feet tall and weighed approximately 210 or 230 pounds.
All of a sudden, the wig-wearing man held a gun to Heather’s head and yanked her off her chair by her hair.
He then dragged her off into the woods that sit right behind the beach.

This happened at 12:45, but the man with the telescope waited a bit to contact 911, later saying that he thought perhaps the man was Heather’s boyfriend just playing a joke on her.
When authorities came out to Newburgh Beach, there was no sign of Heather, but they did find pieces of the red plaid bathing suit she had been wearing close to where she was last seen.
Authorities also apparently discovered a few more pieces of evidence that they have not made public, but none of those things have answered the question of where Heather was taken.
While investigating Heather’s disappearance, authorities spoke to a farmer who was out with a camera that day, just down the street from the beach. He was trying to catch who was responsible for destroying local crops on video.
That farmer did catch something interesting with his camera…a red and white colored Ford Bronco parked right alongside the car that Heather drove.
