Chat: Richard Foster, Author of "The Real Bettie Page

This is a great piece... I believe it is probably a few years old... but still informative:

Question from Cosmo: How and when did Bettie go missing?

Richard Foster: At about the time she went missing she was subpoenaed to speak before a congressional subcommittee, looking into the bondage-suicide of a Boy Scout in Florida. It was sort of a witch hunt. Frightened off by that, Bettie left New York City and her modeling career forever. After a brief detour in Florida, she found religion again, and began attending Bible colleges. From there, she met her third husband, a man named Harry Lear. And that's where my book starts getting interesting.
