Gotlib Case Remains Unsolved, Open

After 25 years, the Ann Gotlib case is still unsolved and open.The 12-year-old Gotlib disappeared from Bashford Manner Mall on June 1, 1983, prompting a massive but unsuccessful search. Local police have been working with the FBI since then to find out what happened to the girl.Major Dave Wood is the commander of the Louisville Metro Police Criminal Investigation Section. He says the case will remain open indefinitely.“Well it’s not closed obviously because we don’t know where Ann Gotlib is," says Wood. "Obviously until we physically have a body or somebody tells us where she is or she walks in the door right now and says, ‘Here I am’ it’s going to be an open case.”Wood says the LMPD continues to receive occasional tips about the case.
