Evelyn Louise Piper was last seen in Phenix City.
She called her daughter in Columbus, Georgia, to wish her a Happy Thanksgiving. She told her daughter that she was going to Jerusalem to get married and would be returning the following Sunday. The daughter thought she was joking as Piper was not dating anybody. The daughter does not know who her mother was planning to marry.
Piper had a business of holding jewelry shows. She asked her daughter to hold the jewelry shows while she was gone but her daughter declined as she didn't know how to do them. Piper replied that she would make other arrangements.
Her car, a 1991 blue Mitsubishi hatchback, was found approximately one week later at the Columbus, Georgia airport in long term parking. There was no evidence that she had a plane ticket to anywhere and the ticket to the parking lot was never found.
