UPDATE 9/4/13 – Many have been asking about her dog.  The dog was kept by friend until Shelly’s family was able to come and get the dog, which will live with them.

UPDATE:  9/2/13 -According to the Find Shelley Starkey Facebook page:

“The worst news was confirmed yesterday. Shelly was found in north San Luis Obispo county in California. A passerby found her around 9:45 am. It appears no foul play was involved and she took her own life. I have really no other info than that as the Sheriff will return on Tuesday.”

Previous story:

Michelle “Shelley” Starkey, missing from Shawnee, Kansas since 8/5/13.  She may be driving her Kia Soul.

According to her mom:

Linda Starkey Norton

A short recap of what we know or supposedly know. Shelley’s last post on fb was Jul 25. The last anyone talked to her or had a text or message etc. was Jul 27. What was happening during the 9 days from Jul 27 until Augt 5…the last day she was seen?? When she left on Aug 5 she took her dog and Tannner’s ashes. Supposedly her cell phone pinged in WY, and the next day it pinged in the KC area. Can anyone add anything to this???

  1. I'm just now finding out about Shelley's passing. I took this photo. She is sitting in my Odyssey. That is Teddy that I was delivering to her & she was driving to Topeka, Ks I believe with him. She was a very nice woman. Such a good & kind person. My sympathies to those who knew and loved her.
