          Mother Describes What Happened The Night Her Teen Daughter Disappeared


          August 11, 2016

          Linda says her life became a living nightmare on November 8, 2015, when her 15-year-old daughter went out to walk the dog and didn’t return.

          “The night that she disappeared was the worst night of my life. She took our dog outside and she just vanished. There was no trace of her anywhere,” Linda says. “She was gone for about 20 minutes, and I knew something was wrong. My daughter and I are very close. I knew that she did not just run off. I knew something bad had happened.”
