She was missing one tooth when she was last seen in 1976. She has freckles across her nose. Scofield's nicknames are Dee and DeeDee (sometimes spelled "Dee-Dee"; or "DeDe"). Her middle name my be spelled "Delila" by some agencies.

Details of Disappearance:

Scofield and her mother left their Ocala, Florida residence together on July 22, 1976. Her mother took a driving test while Scofield returned a pair of sandals at a nearby shopping center. She also planned to buy a birthday present for her brother. Scofield returned the shoes and was last seen at the mall at approximately 2:00 p.m. that day. Scofield never met her mother at the designated location they had agreed on and she reported her daughter as missing. Scofield has never been seen again.

A witness reported having seen a girl matching Scofield's description two hours after she was reported missing. The child was in a convenience store with an adult male. They purchased two sodas and left. The child was shaking and appeared to be very frightened. She and the man with her were never identified and law enforcement authorities are not sure if she was Scofield.

Scofield lived with her family in a mobile home in Citra, Florida in 1976. Investigators do not believe she ran away from home; she was a good student and a churchgoer at the time of her disappearance and was not having any personal problems. There was some speculation at that time that her disappearance might be linked to the 1975 disappearances of Sheila and Katherine Lyon, but no evidence connecting the cases was discovered and all three remain unsolved.


This is a really cold case that everyone has pretty much just given up on. I vaguely remember this case being in the news and that's possible because this happened back in a day when you just didn't hear this sort of thing on the news every night. Especially not locally. Ocala is far north of my home but our local broadcasters are located just south of there. I am sure there was a bit of coverage. So it is very sad that it was never solved. Could she be another JC Duggard?

I want to thank my own personal super sleuth, Madena, for sending me so many great cases. This is one of those. There are two charts that need to be done in this case, one for the time she was last seen in the mall and one for the time when she was supposedly ID'd in a convenience store with TWO adult males. I have read several reports on this and they all put one man in the store and another in the car. I am of the personal belief that this last was an actual sighting of Dorothy in the company of her abductors. The clerk gave a very accurate description of Dorothy, down to the clothing she was wearing, before the cops told her anything about the girl. It is interesting that this involved two men. In my mind, this eliminates any of the previously suspected individuals because most of them were lone serial killers who would not invite someone else along. This would take a buddy system like the hillside stranglers or Bittaker and Norris. Killers don't kill some women alone and then bring a friend along for others. It just doesn't happen. Christopher Wilder, for instance, who was a suspect for a long time, did not EVER use an accomplice and I hate to point this out, but I feel I should, sweet, little Dorothy did not fit the profile of the gorgeous, older, "aspiring model" types that Wilder was known for snatching. Now, Tammy Lynn Leppert is more a possible victim of his and I am not convinced at this time that she was not.

Right away, I looked at every chart from 2 pm on. I am still not sure at what exact hour her mother reported her missing so I am not sure at what time she was seen with the man in the store. I started with 4 pm, which is 2 hours after the hour she was last seen and then went forward from there. What I saw right away was disturbing and familiar. I will show you in a minute. However, I did not see a death pattern in the first few charts, up to 6 pm, in fact, so I went ahead and ran charts for every hour until midnight to see if the directions went that way. And I will show you what they said when I get to them.

In the first chart, which was drawn for the time she was last seen in the mall, Scorpio is rising and Taurus is falling. Mars is in the eleventh, on the cusp of the tenth, Pluto is in the twelfth house, cusping the eleventh, and Venus is in the tenth with Mercury, close to the midheaven. The child is "out in the open" but possibly emerging from a more obscure area. Leaving the bathroom, perhaps. Perhaps this is when she was seen. The person who saw her appears to be a woman in a prominent position at the mall, such as a security guard, hall monitor, store owner or manager. I am thinking manager at a book store. But anyways, there was no exchange between her and the child, she simply recalls seeing her.

I am interested in knowing what exact time this child was supposed to meet her mother and where. In the chart for 4 pm, it looks like she went to a desk or office in the mall, somewhere she thought an authority might be- an authority like a security monitor, perhaps. She may have done this because she was lost.. or perhaps this is where she was to meet her mother. There was a man around there, a foreigner, who befriended her and said he would help her. Or perhaps he told her that her mother sent him or he was there because something had happened to her mother. It is hard to tell. This man was no doubt much older than Dorothy, the charts indicate he was an adult and not a teen. He was also attractive, articulate, clever and controlling. It is a few minutes after 4 pm when the second man appears; notice Gemini slipping onto the descendant with Mercury conjoined Venus. The thing that just grabs me is the mutual rulership of the tenth house, which gives me the impression that this man was an "authority" of some sort and perhaps even in a uniform. I know that the man in the store was not in a uniform or this would have been mentioned, but what about the driver? Did anyone see the driver?

The other prominent feature in the 4 pm chart is Neptune in the first house opposing the Moon in the seventh. This man used a clever ruse, he fooled this child. He lied about something and disguised himself in some way and she fell for it. Perhaps he wore a uniform only for the purpose of snatching a child. Perhaps that uniform went back to it's original place or went off with the trash man. But there was a guise of some sort and since the charts keep pointing towards "authorities" I cannot help but wonder. Do not forget that they also say he is foreign or, at the least, had a foreign accent.

At a few minutes after 4 pm, Sagittarius takes the Ascendant with Jupiter in the sixth. At this moment, Dorothy is in extreme danger. Jupiter, at it's current position, is within 2 degrees of the Pleiades, the "weeping sisters", which often point to tragedy. To boot, Saturn, Mercury and Venus are all under the Sun's beams. In this chart, we have a T square involving the Moon, Mars and Neptune. Mars is on the short leg of the T but the Moon is sinister, which makes it a translator of light. This child met this man under false pretences and it was her own beliefs that fooled her. She was sure she could trust him. But I am sure that by the time she had left the mall, she knew otherwise. The unfortunate exact opposition of the Moon and Neptune while the Moon was translating light from Mars to Neptune, is why the girl was so easily deceived.

Neptune is also within less than a degree of a conjunction with Dschubba, which is often a pointer at extreme danger and sometimes murder. In the chart for 5 pm, the Moon and Jupiter slip into the sixth house, showing great fear and extreme danger. Especially with Jupiter near the Pleiades and the Moon opposing Dschubba and Neptune. This poor little girl was smart enough to realize the danger she was in and I am sorry to report that she was terrified. The chart for 5 pm is telling in another matter as well. The seventh and tenth house ruler, Mercury, has moved into the eighth house along with a group of other planets, including the dispositor for the chart ruler. A tale is starting to emerge. The Sun is showing a "group leader" or instigator in the matter; the Sun disposes all the others so they are doing this because of this one man. The grouping in the eighth house gives an inkling of sexual purposes. Mercury co ruling the tenth hints at a business arrangement; could this be a porn ring or forced prostitution or some other form of slavery? It is possible, but let's see. Neptune is now in the twelfth, showing that they are hiding this child, not killing her, and that she still has no idea what her purpose is in their plans.

By 6 pm, the chart ruler, Jupiter, moves into the fifth house and it's dispositor is in the eighth. This combination points to sex. I believe this describes sexual contact. Venus is now the tenth house ruler but Mercury is now the seventh house ruler, maintaining the same configuration! This keeps the focus of the chart on a business arrangement. This whole abduction was for the purpose of procuring a child for a sex business. This is underlined by the conjunction between Mercury and Venus, still in the eighth house. Neptune, still in the twelfth house, is still disposed of by Jupiter, which is now in the fifth house. Another loop proving consistency. Child porn or something like this. Sex involving children. The fifth house, eighth house, Neptune, Jupiter and Mercury. Pretty clear. And so very sad.

Going forward from here, the chart for 7 pm shows Capricorn rising and Cancer falling with the Moon in the fifth. Saturn is in the seventh house with the tenth house ruler. The business "partners" are now altogether, with the child. The Moon in the fifth opposing Neptune in the eleventh tells me pictures or films are being made. The child's ruler, at this point in time, is Saturn and it is closely under the Sun's beams. The child is being held against her will, she is in danger and experiencing great fear. But none of the major players are applying to an aspect with Saturn so her danger is not that extreme. In fact, it is doubtful that they will kill her. Saturn is disposed of by the Sun, which rules the current eighth house cusp, so she will be held for sexual reasons. She is being used this way and will not be killed, at least not this night. Nothing much happens to change events in the next chart but in the charts for 9 and 10 pm, the first house ruler moves into the ninth house. This shows them transporting her to someplace far away. This travel configuration remains true in the charts for 10 and 11 pm, as well. They took her someplace far away, maybe even a foreign country. She could have gone by plane but the number of hours involved in the planetary transits shows it could have been by train. I do know, however, that it was not by car or bus and she is not in the immediate area any longer.

The ongoing square between the chart ruler and the rulers of the tenth and fourth houses show that she did not get along with her captors. She was a "handful", so to speak and made things difficult for them. The chart ruler is disposed of by Pluto, the tenth house ruler, which is now in the eighth house, showing that their motives remain the same. This is "business" and nothing more. The continuing opposition between the Moon and Neptune on the tenth/fourth house axis shows us that they are hiding her "out in the open". They are out in public with the girl, but she has been subdued. She is being taken to her "new home" and she is nervous and afraid. Now, the questions remain, where is this "new home" and who are her captors? How can they be identified? Well, I am willing to make a fool out of myself once again in an effort to describe where she went and who took her. I realize this is a totally imperfect and, so far, barely helpful, exercise but the purpose of this blog is research so that is what I am doing. So here goes.

There are conflicting pointers in this chart so I will try to balance it out. One pointer says she went southwest and another says southeast. Cities to be considered are West Palm Beach (southeast of Ocala) and Tampa (southwest of Ocala), both in Florida and both ruled by planets in the right places. If they left the country and headed south, the best guess is Argentina. The man or men who took this girl are signified by Mercury in Leo. Gemini as the cusp ruler at the time of the abduction shows multiple people involved. The man who actually snatched her would be a large man of medium height with light brown or dark blond hair. As I said earlier, he was using a ruse that made him look like an "authority", which possibly means a uniform. It is possible, also, that he worked at that mall. From all pointers, it looked like Dorothy was not the only child they nabbed. They had been doing this for awhile. I do not believe the charts show targeting or stalking. It was a crime of opportunity, that is all. The node in a sensitive position in the chart says that this was a sudden event; they simply saw a little girl when they were looking for one and they had a good story, one that she readily believed.

Now, here's the thing. I do not believe they killed her. I believe they took her some place far from home and set up camp. She was likely one in a long line of girls used for their dirty business but I do not think they were murderers. They may have sold her, used her for awhile and let her go, when she may have been addicted to drugs and used to "the life". She may be a streetwalker or drug addict in a place far from her home. Dorothy's birth chart shows a cluster of planets in Capricorn and Aquarius. I don't have the birth time or exact location so the chart is general and not precise. But there are no strong aspects from the transiting chart to the birth placments. Transiting Uranus is sinister to a conjunction with her birth Moon in Scorpio but Uranus is not a player in the event chart. However, it has been my experience that women born with Moon in Scorpio are often the victims of sexual abuse. I have seen countless charts that support this. That is not to say that all women with Moon in Scorpio will be victims, just that it is a often seen thing in charts. But one good sign is the trine from her birth Jupiter to the grouping of planets that rule her captors in the event chart. This tells us that she was able to find joy in her life over time and even come to terms with the people who took her.

Since I do not believe that she is dead and could be out there among us all, please give this case a lot of thought. Look at her picture and think about the people around you. Have you seen her or someone who looks like her? If you have, then please contact the Ocala PD by going to their website HERE . Thanks! It would be nice to find this woman and give her family some relief.
