Stacey Lyn Chahorski, 19, was born and raised in Norton Shores, Muskegon County, Michigan, United States. She is the daughter of Mary Beth Ritter Chahorski, 41, and the sister of Michael Albert Chahorski, 18.

While in North Carolina, USA, Stacey talked to Mary Beth via telephone on September 15, 1988. The teenage girl told her mother that she was heading back to Michigan.

The Norton Shores teen wanted to see other parts of the U.S. She hitchhiked across the country even though her mother warned her against doing it.
