Fifteen-year-old Misty resided with a foster family in Woodland, Washington in August of 1993. She left home on August 19th and has not been seen since.
There had been prior issues with Misty's foster home and they eventually had their license revoked.
The girls who had been placed in that family supposedly had inappropriate relationships. Misty spent some time with the adult son-in-law of the home's owner. He was a Mexican national and facing possible deportation proceedings. Social workers asked him to move out. The man (who was later accused of impregnating another teenager) left the home at approximately the same time Misty did.
Misty's foster mother claims that Misty called her after her disappearance and said she was okay, but wouldn't reveal her whereabouts.
When police interviewed the foster mother about Misty's disappearance eight years later, she said that in 1997, U.S. government officials in Mexico called her and told her that Misty died.
However, she never got a written notice of Misty's death and the police have been unable to confirm this account.
Although many agencies have classified Misty as a runaway and it's possible that she did leave of her own accord, she is missing under mysterious circumstances and may be in danger. Her case remains unsolved.
Misty is described as a Caucasian female with brown hair, brown eyes, a height of 5'3 and weighs 110 pounds. She was last seen wearing a purple sweatshirt, white shorts, white socks and white shoes.
