Circumstances of Disappearance
Sarah, her father, Paul Skiba and his employee, Lorenzo Chivers were last seen on February 7, 1999, when Paul Skiba and Lorenzo Chivers went to a moving job in Morrison, CO, and Paul's daughter tagged along.
When they weren't heard from for a week, Paul's ex-wife and a friend went to the moving company lot in Westminster and found the moving truck parked with bullet holes, blood and a bloody piece of scalp.
A DNA test revealed that blood found in a moving van belonged to Paul and Sarah Skiba, the scalp to Paul. Chivers, who has also not been seen since, was the father of a son and daughter the same age as Sarah.

Investigators learned that the truck had left the lot at about 20.00 and was returned about midnight. Police theorize the three were killed at the lot and the truck was used to dispose of their bodies. It was then driven back to the lot and parked. No trace of the three has ever been found.
