Darbi’s family says she became a victim of sex trafficking when she ran away from home at age 15. She was rescued and returned to her mother, Janice’s, care, but a year later, disappeared again.
Janice and her ex-husband, Wayne, each say they blame the other for Darbi’s disappearance and her ongoing behavioral and mental health issues.

“I have a hard time with the sex and drug use. I choose not to know all the details,” admits Wayne, who says he blames Janice for exposing Darbi to drugs, sex, pornography, and “a lesbian environment.” Wayne says he knows Darbi has been diagnosed with mental health issues but says he doesn’t really know what she has.
“I feel angry because it’s such an exhausting process. It’s Wayne’s lack of parenting that forced me to make decisions I wouldn’t normally make,” says Janice. She’s blaming Wayne for being an absentee dad.
Darbi’s aunt, Camille, says it’s time Wayne and Janice stopped feuding and started working together to find their missing child.
