Episode #114: Andrea Jean Coyle - Missing (1998)

Back in the day mental health was not widely acknowledged. If treatment was provided it would typically be harsh, cruel, and ineffective. The lack of knowledge, correct treatment, and the negative connotations of mental illness could have potentially been the reason behind the disappearance of Andrea Jean Coyle. She struggled with mental illness and in 1971 she experienced a breakdown. The hospital she stayed at provided a course of electroconvulsive therapy. According to Andrea’s family she was never the same after. For years her mental health was teetering between attempting suicide, disappearing for months on end, and making poor choices. December 19, 1998 was the last time her family has seen or heard from her.
