Circumstances of Disappearance
Sagers was last seen at approximately 07:00 on October 4, 1988 in Mount Holly, South Carolina.
She was standing at the bus stop in front of the Mount Holly Plantation at the time. A bus driver who had driven past the wooden shelter told detectives he had seen Annette and her dog about 07.00. When her bus arrived at 07:20, she was gone.

Sagers disappeared from the exact same location as her mother, Korrina Lynne Sagers Malinoski, did on November 27, 1987. Malinoski's husband told Berkeley County deputies his wife left the cabin between 22.00 and 23:30 the night before, saying she was going for a drive. Police called investigators from the State Law Enforcement Division, search and rescue crews, and combed the grounds on foot and by air. They asked the public for help, interviewed Steven Malinoski, and alerted Korrina Malinoski's parents in Iowa. But no one had seen or heard from her.

Police found a note at the scene after the child vanished, which stated that Malinoski had arrived for Sagers and they left together. The note said "Dad, momma came back. Give the boys a hug." Investigators determined that the handwriting was Sagers' own.
