Misty Upham: Missing from Washington Found

UPDATE 10/19/14 - Misty's death has been ruled a homicide.

UPDATE:  10/16/14 -  The body of Misty Upham was found at the bottom of a ravine near the White River by volunteers led by her uncle Robert Upham, “The main thing her family wants people to know is that the Auburn Police Department would not cooperate in looking for Misty,” Tracy Rector a friend told Deadline. “There’s a long history of police harassment and friction between the police and the Muckleshoot community here, and her family feels they dropped the ball and Misty perhaps would have been found if the police had taken it seriously.”

Previous story:  Misty Upham, 32, who was born in Montana and grew up in Seattle, was last seen Oct. 6.  Misty who played a housekeeper in the movie August Osage County, was last seen walking by herself from an apartment in Auburn, Wash. The Police received a suicide call from that apartment, but when the police arrived no one was at the apartment.

Auburn Police Commander Steve Stocker said there has been suicide call to the same apartment four time in the last year.  The family told Stocker that she has been on medication for mental health issues.

Upham received an nomination for her supporting role in the movie, Frozen River, playing the part of Lila Littlewolf.  She was cast as Tina Walsh in the yet unreleased movie, Crawlspace.

Charles Upham, Misty's dad has released a statement.  For many of missing loved ones the most sobering part is realizing that many times you are on your own to find your missing loved one.  It is not like in the movies where the police force puts out APB's and police cars are racing up and down the street looking for one person, it is more like the family being asked hours of questions, told not to worry and then sit and wait for something to happen.  Heaven forbid that the missing person goes missing in a town where there is little training, where there is no SAR dogs, where there is an opinion that a missing person will come back when they are ready.

Because of this many people are found days, weeks and even years later, at the bottom of a cliff, or even sitting up with their back to a tree where they died from exposure after being completely lost in the woods.

Some communities take it upon themselves to start searching and this is what is going on with the case of Misty.  But, unfortunately, time is lost between the reporting of a person gone and the effort put into getting a group together to start looking.  

I believe we need the final call on the status of a missing person to be made by a third party that has years of experience and not the local police department.  Letting one person make a judgement call on a missing person is a mistake.  Too many times the call to not look, or wait is clouded by a police department that is understaffed and overworked or just plain uneducated on how to deal with missing person cases. 

Official Press Release from Charles Upham:

"I would like to clarify circumstances regarding Misty's disappearance. In my opinion the media has spun an inaccurate perspective. So far articles read: Actress stressed over money and career, Father fears suicide. Police reports suggest the Misty packed her bags and left to on her own. The truth is Misty is not stressed over money or career. Her career is going great. As her father I do not fear she committed suicide. I feel that she has been hurt by accident or someone has put her in harms way. I didn't
appreciate the press release from Auburn PD that she simply packed a bag and left. Now they have the general public thinking that Misty just decided to leave home for awhile. Misty left in a psychotic state of mind with the clothes she had on and her
shoulder bag. All if her clothes and other belonging are still here. This is the first time in 32 years we have lost contact with her and she stopped contact with everyone. This raises a serious red flag for me but apparently law enforcement officials disagree. I
guess high profile individuals disappear without a trace every day of the week around here. Some of the people that met her or worked with her for a few months are weighing in with their own conclusions and people are accepting it as the gospel.They don't really know her. TMZ called her sister try to get a story and the first thing
they ask is "do you think she is dead?, did she commit suicide?" How insensitive can you be at a time like this. We are heart broken and very frightening that we may never see her again. We are not getting much rest and everyday we have to look at her belonging, the food she cooked still in the fridge, her pets and unanswered social media post just waiting for her to come back and resume where she left off. I invited the media to cover the story for one purpose only, to help get the word out that she is missing and
let people know we need help in finding her. We, her family, have limited resources and we tried to start a fund campaign to generate financial help. We are finding out that process of finding a missing person is both costly and time consuming. But some have ridiculed us for using this tragic event for profit so we pulled the online request. If I had the money I would have hired a private investigator, organize a search team and search dogs on the day she disappeared. Now we have to write another press release and share personal information that Misty would like to keep personal. Here are the facts:  Misty has suffered from mental illness most of her life. With the help of her
medical team and family support she is able to manage it well. She is not a nut case. She is an advocate and supporter for several organizations such as: PETA, Domestic Worker's Rights, Women's Rights, LGBT Community and she is a proponent of economic development and self-determination among Native American communities. Her professional accomplishments are a testament to her business sophistication and intellect. When I, her father, suffered a stroke earlier this year Misty moved to Seattle with both her parents to help manage after care and be close to family. We are planning to return to Los Angeles, after I complete my post-stroke treatment, sometime after the new year. When Misty left California state her medical team stopped her treatment and told her to re-establish treatment and medication in
Washington State. This has not been a smooth transition. She cannot get her meds here and was give alternative medication that wasn't effective enough to deal with her bipolar anxiety disorder. She started to slip into bouts of depression and panic attacks. She tried to compensate by drinking wine to combat the anxiety and I believe that these meds mixed with alcohol would cause psychotic behavior episodes. She would always recover and not remember what happened. She would sometimes threaten to take her own life but would never go through with any if the threats. She has several scars on her wrists where she cut but never enough to cause death or serious
injury. Misty believes that suicide is a sin and in her darker moments she would tell me "Dad, I would never take my own life. But sometimes when I get depressed I feel that death would be better than life. My greatest fear is that you and mom will die before me and I will be all alone in this world. I don't know how I could face that. I pray that God will take me peacefully in my sleep one day before you and mom take the journey." Misty has developed a phobia of throwing up. She gets panic attacks whenever she
feel nausa. She never wants to be left alone over this, even for a few minutes. She tells me that she wants to overcome this and become independent again. But this unusual fear keeps her close to home and in constant contact with her parents.  Now we have lost contact. Since her disappearance she has not made contact with any of her family, friends or business constituents. We have requested help from the Muckleshoot tribe for search teams but they do not have funding for that. We are
petitioning Auburn PD to implement the ENDANGERED MISSING PERSONS PLAN. This will allow law enforcement to search for her and bring her intomedical care when they find her. But they feel she does not fit the profile at this time. The detective on the case assured our family that Auburn PD is doing everything they can to find Misty. But then they release a press statement and say they are not looking for her. These mixed messages are confusing. I think Misty may have walked into nearby woods and got hurt and can't reach help or I think she may have had an encounter with someone who may have caused her harm. I believe she would contact us if she could. I feel that if she is found soon she may have a chance to survive. But time is slipping away.

Message to Misty:

Misty, if you can see this message, we love you and your family will continue to search for you until you are found. Come home please. We thank all her concerned friends
and family for all the kind words, prayers and suggestions.

Misty was last wearing a purple sweater, black t-shirt, grey sweatpants, silver tennis shoes. She has cut her hair short. She has cut scars on both arms and a birth mark on the back near her neck. She was carrying a white cell phone and a California ID."

Sabrina Allen: Missing girl to see father again after 12 years

The last time Greg Allen saw his little girl Sabrina, she was 4-years-old.  After a 12-year search, Sabrina will be returning to him as a 17-year-old young lady.

Sabrina was tracked down in Mexico by a private investigator who has been searching for her as long as her father.  Although they had some knowledge that Sabrina was living in Mexico with her mother Dara that took her during a court appointed visitation, every time they got close Dara moved.

But on Tuesday, they followed up on another tip that turned out to be good and found Dara and Sabrina, that now goes by the name of Faith, in an apartment outside Mexico City.

Dara in an attempt to keep Sabrina hidden did not allow her to go to school and convinced her to hide by telling her that her father was a bad person.

Even though Sabrina will receive the care she will need to adjust to becoming acquainted with her father, it may be a long time, if ever that she will be able to completely comprehend that her mom had lied to her over the years.

When my own brothers and sisters who went missing at the ages of 3 and 4 by their father were found over 10 years later, they were not happy nor in a hurry to become reacquainted with their mother.  They had been told their whole life that she had left them, not the other way around, and that she did not care for them at all.  Even though they were told that she never stopped looking for them and hired a private investigator to keep searching for them, they did not trust what they were being told, and in fact wrote angry, mean letters to her, repeating the lies that their father had told them over the years.  It was though they could not comprehend that their father had done anything wrong and everyone else was falsely accusing him.  The bond they had with their father and his extended family could not be broken, and they wanted to hang onto it so badly, they hung on to the lies that he told them, to the point they refused to even meet their mother and kept their allegiance to their father until a Judge stepped in and forced them to visit her.

Even when they started their own families and completely understood what their father had done, they still continued their relationship with him and favored being in that family unit.  As far as I know they never blamed their father for abducting them, but spent most of their young lives blaming their mother for abandoning them.  The fact that it was never her choice, didn't matter. 

Back them, the abducted parent was not arrested and the father continued his life as though he never did anything wrong, and never realizing the damage he had done to his own children.

I am sure that Dora will probably have the same attitude, and if anyone is expecting an apology, it will never happen.  I guess you already have to be off your rocker to abduct your own child in the first place.  The minute a parent names themselves as the perfect parent and justifies themselves as the only parent worthy enough to raise their child, is the first sign of an unstable mind and of someone that really is NOT the best parent for the child. 

I hope Sabrina can process everything that has happened to her and grow into a strong young woman that realizes what her mother did, does not define her, and really, truly has nothing to do with her, but has everything to do with her mother sacrificing her own child's well-being over her own self-centered beliefs. 

Maybe if Sabrina knows that no matter what she did or was or acting, would not have changed a thing, she can find the first step to freedom from the mental captivity she suffered through for so long.

Adelle Burns: Teen missing from Mississippi

Adelle Burns, 14, is missing from Tallahassee, Miss.  Adelle attended cob Middle School and when her mother went to wake her up at their Katherine Spped Court home on Aug. 26, Adelle was not in her bed. 

Authorities has labeled her a runaway, and her mother, Glenna Phillips, told the Tallahassee Democrat they had to take a lot of it into their own hands because little has been done to search for her.

"Somebody is helping her.  A 14-year-old cannot run away and survive on her own without money or anything."

What Glenna is saying is very true and whoever that person is, is breaking the law.  So you would think that if the authorities won't go looking for Adelle they would at least be looking for the individual that is breaking the law.

Contrary to what Glenna said, the Leon County Sheriff's Office says they are actively investigating her whereabouts and are concerned for her safety.  James McQuaig, the PIO for LCSO said they have served search warrants, court orders and subpoenas "among friends, family members and the community as well as lie detector tests and forensic analysis," in this case.

Adelle is 5'3" tall with brown hair and brown eyes.  She was last seen wearing shorts and a t-shirt.

Scott Vogan: Missing from Indiana

Scott Vogan is missing from Fort Wayne, IN.  He was last seen 8/28/2014 driving a white 2013 Infinity with temporary Indiana paper license plate.

On the Help Us Find Scott Vogan Facebook page it states:

"Scott has had an extremely rough time the past few years and two weeks ago he hopped in the car and left. Normally, he stays with a friend, or relative for a couple days and comes home, or at the least remains in contact via cell phone with the family. We have been helping his wife to sort through this and work with local PD to locate Scott, but it hasn't been fruitful.

His wife has asked that I post this in the hopes that it goes viral and someone, somewhere knows where Scott is. We are all praying for his safe return. Please post and repost this message. Please share with news sites. Please pray to God for his safety and that God will hold this family tight in his arms while this unfolds.

Scott's white 2013 Infinity still has the dealer temporary paper license plate on it. He was last seen in the vicinity of the Meijer store at IN Hwy 37 and I-469.

Scott, we are praying for your health and safe return. Come home, brother, your family and friends need you."

If you have any information about Scott or see him or his car, please leave a tip here or take a photo of what you see and let us know.  Sometimes a car is easier to spot than a person, so if you see a car that you think is Scott's, take a photo and pass on where you saw it.  You can also go to the Help Us Find Scott Vogan Facebook page and leave a message.

UPDATE 9/13/14 - Robert and Marian have been found deceased.  Their truck was discovered after neighbors went to see why a dog kept barking and running down an embankment.  They found the Gleason inside their truck that had traveled the road between two houses across the street from their house.  The truck ended up going down a hill and veered around some trees and slid down more till stopping in the gully. 

Police Lt. Barry Walker said it's unclear whether the couple died immediately, or if a medical condition may have precipitated the crash. The coroner is investigating to determine the cause of death.

Tanya Gonzalez: Missing from Miami Found

UPDATE:    Roy Ruz Blanco a former boyfriend of Tanyon died at Lower Keys Medical Center on Stock Island shortly after 4 p.m., not long after deputies chased him, his mother, Marta Blanco-Mendoza, and their dog, into the woods.  Marta swallowed a handful of pills and Blanco stabbed himself in the stomach, said the Sheriff Dept, reports the Miami Herald. 

They were found by someone who spotted them under a bridge.  The police believe they had been living there.

Tanya's car was found and police found a decomposed body in the truck.  The body was later identified as belonging to Tanya.

UPDATE 9/15/14 - More has come out about this story:

Robert Gonzalez, Tanya's father talked with CBS Miami and said Tanya had just moved into a new apartment after breaking up with Roy Blanco, her live-in boyfriend of five years.  Gonzalez said that Blanco was controlling and was trying to come in between Tanya and her family and was watching her cell phone and trying to stop Tanya from going anywhere.  Tanya had moved on and was dating someone else.

“She felt nothing for him no more,” said Gonzalez. “She told her mother, she told me, she told him."  Robert said there were repercussions for her actions because, Blanco "went ballistic."

Her family believes Blanco was stalking her when she went missing.  Strangely, Blanco was found off the coast of Key West when the boat he rented ran out of glass.  Evidently he rented the boat around the time Tanya went missing, and took his mother and two dogs with him.  The family says Blanco never returned the rental boat and was later found off the coast of Key West when he ran out of gas.

Previous story:  Tanya Gonzalez, 28, from Miami was last seen Tuesday, Sept. 9, 2014.  She went shopping with her aunt in Midtown Miami and they both left in separate cars.  Tanya has not been seen since and her cell phone is off.

Tanya has not called her family nor has she shown up at work. 

If you see her or her vehicle  (searching to see what it is), please call 911.  
Tanya's car looks like this

Alberto has given us more information as posted:  "She drives a blue BMW 335i. She is now believed to be driving a white 2001 mercury wagon. She has two large dogs and is believe to be with her ex boyfriend and his mother."  Thanks, Alberto.  Keep us posted.

Colton Brandt Turner: 2-year-old missing, mother last seen him in July Found

UPDATE:  Colton's body has been found.  The police will not say if he was found buried in some sort of container.

“We are not going to go into the investigative details of what brought us to where we’re at,” Cedar Park Police Chief Sean Mannix said. “We still have search warrants to run.”

 UPDATE:  The police are in a wooded area in Southeast Austin Friday morning after receiving what they called a "strong" lead into the case.

They plan to do "excavation of the site…"

I believe the police thought it was a custody situation and didn't want to get involved. 

This is the law in Texas:

  1. The parent, spouse, or guardian must contact a law enforcement agency and file a missing person report. The missing person must be entered into the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) files by the law enforcement agency.
  2. A "Missing Persons Clearinghouse MP-3 Report Form" must be signed, completed and returned to the MPCH. (Forms can be obtained from the MPCH or online at Downloadable Forms).
  3. A current, original photograph must be received by the MPCH. (NOTE: Do not write on the back of the photo.)
  4. In case of parental abductions, a copy of the custody order stating that the reporting parent has custody must be received by MPCH. 
  5. The parent, spouse, guardian or investigating officer must notify MPCH immediately of the location or return of the missing person.
Was it number 4 that kept the police from moving forward in this investigation?  This is why the police should NOT be making a call on whether they should search for someone or not and the decision should go to the police chief or a trained MP board to decide. This board will also help assure that all the steps are being done by law to search for the person including putting their information into NCIC. Because the police wouldn't do a missing person report, then other agencies were stone-walled to help the dad. Things have GOT TO CHANGE.

Brandon Pelfrey, Colton's dad is searching
for his son.
Police are searching for a missing Williamson County boy who has been missing since Wednesday evening.

Police were called to a Cedar Park home in Texas to check on Colton Brandt Turner, 2, and his mother Meghan Work, 20. 

The police found  Meghan outside the home, but no sign of the boy.  Work told the police she was homeless and been sleeping in her car with her son, and that she last saw Colton in July.

“Not knowing where the child is.  The mother not knowing who has the child, where the child is, what the welfare of the child is.  That’s what make us believe that he is in danger,” the Cedar Park Assistant Police Chief Mike Harmon told KVUE news.

Colton’s father , Brandon Pelfrey, has been searching for him since May.  He contacted the police but was told it was not an emergency.  It wasn’t until he received photos of his son with cuts and bruises from an unnamed source, that the police began to go look for him. 

Tabatha Dawdy that identified herself as Brandon’s cousin posted on Facebook,  “Three weeks ago he begged Bertram PD to make a report when they said it wasn't an emergency Brandon spent the next few weeks trying to persuade them that it was. He called the center for missing and exploited children and without a report fro the police they wouldn't help. He's spent the last week chasing whatever lead he could and all this morning g running g down everyone he and she knew for help or info.

Investigators narrowed down through talking with other people that no one has seen Colton since July.

Authorities stated that Work was known by Child Protective Services, but did not say much more than that.  She will be charged with endangering and abandoning a child.
