Episode #56: Phylicia Thomas - Missing (2004)

Updated: Apr 24, 2022

Phylicia finished her shift at Pump-N-Pantry on February 11th 2004 and went home. Her boyfriend at the time was at home asleep on the couch when she got in. He woke up when she entered the house and remembered she asked where the beer was before going back to sleep. After she went outside to get a beer she vanished.
