Local woman searches for information on father who disappeared 40 years ago

Philadelphia Magazine recently published an article about the 40th anniversary of the mysterious disappearance of Dallyn Pavey’s father. Pavey, who lives in Wayne, very close to West Conshohocken, is a public relations professional who has worked over the past couple of decades with a variety of restaurants in the area. She is also closely associated with the Philadelphia music scene having worked behind the scenes in radio and public relations. She is married to David Uosikkinen, the drummer of the Hooters.

Pavey’s father lived in Florida and had a young bride when he disappeared off the coast of Florida near Miami. This was 1982 cocaine-fueled Miami and her 50-year-old father worked in the drug trade with one of the cartels.

Were the pair simply lost at sea in an accident? Murdered randomly? Or targeted?

Pavey has been working to bring attention to the mystery in hopes that someone will come forward with information.

She has created a series of videos that are published on her YouTube.com channel that tell the story. You can watch the first four below and find all of the episodes here.

Pavey is hosting an event at Gypsy Saloon on Tuesday, July 12th from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. Stop by and learn more about the mystery.
