Katelyn Markham Missing Ohio: 22-Year-Old College Student Disappears from Townhouse
Monday, August 29, 2011 at 11:37 am
|Katelyn was about to graduate from college next month, and she left behind her purse and her car keys|
The next morning, John sent her a good morning text. She didn't respond, but he simply assumed she was busy working at David's Bridal. But when he kept texting her that morning and she didn't respond, he knew something was wrong.
He left work to find her car still at the townhome. A check of the house found nothing amiss. Katelyn wasn't there, and the only thing apparently missing was her cell phone. Her dog was found locked in a bedroom.
No one seems to believe Katelyn would leave on her own. She and John were planning to move to Colorado in November after she graduated from school.
Moreover, she left her purse and car keys behind. But when friends and family tried to call her phone, they found it turned off. The phone's GPS device had also been turned off.
Police don't seem to know what to make of her disappearance. There were no signs of a struggle at the home. But if they have any theories on what happened to Katelyn, they're playing them close to the vest.
Katelyn's relatives believe she was abducted. Her bed appears as though it was slept in the night she went missing. They believe she answered a knock at the door while she was sleeping, only to be kidnapped.
We'll keep you posted.
