Her sister dropped her off at her Brandon apartment late at night after a trip to Palm Beach. A few weeks later, they spoke by phone. She needed money, which couldn't be provided and she angrily hung up. She called a few days later, apologized, and said she would call again soon. She was never heard from again.
A few months later (possibly late 1986 or early 1987) a creditor called and said that she was living with an alligator farmer in Plant City, FL. He did not know which farm. Several attempts to find her were unsuccessful and it is suspected that she may have been using drugs. The trail ended.
