When a Baltimore County woman disappeared nearly 29 years ago, her male companion said she had traveled to London -- but her personal belongings, including her cane and wheelchair, were still at her home.

Stephanie Marie Gant-Brady, who had been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis, had not obtained a passport for travel, nor had she picked up her last paycheck. She was last seen on April 8, 1984, when she was 39 years old.

Investigators suspect foul play in her disappearance, and the case remains unsolved.

According to police, Gant-Brady is black with brown hair and brown eyes. She weighed about 110 pounds and was 5 feet 3 inches tall at the time of her disappearance, and she was seen wearing two rings with an opal and a small diamond.

She wears glasses and contacts, according to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System. She was also known by the nickname "Penny."

Gant-Brady served on the Governor's Committee for the Handicapped and was enrolled at the University of Baltimore at the time of her disappearance.

Anyone with information about her disappearance is asked to call police at 410-887-3943 or 410-307-2020. They can also call Metro Crime Stoppers at 1-866-7-LOCKUP (56-2587) or send a text message to 274637 starting with "MCS."
