She was last seen sometime in August of 2002, when she was dropped off at a truck stop in Spartanburg, South Carolina, and tried to catch a ride there. In August of 2005, police received an anonomyous letter that Michele had been murdered and that her body had been dumped in Landrum, South Carolina, but this was never confirmed. Authorities believe that Jonathan Vick may have been involved in Michele's disappearance, along with the disappearance of his girlfriend, Heather Sellars. Vick was charged in 2006 for the 1995 murder of Dana Satterfield, and remains a suspect in the other two cases. Michele remains missing.
Suspects: Jonathan Vick was considered a suspect in Michele's disappearance, along with the disappearance of his girlfriend.
Extra Notes: The case was never featured on Unsolved Mysteries, but was connected to the murder of Dana Satterfield. She was also featured on Disappeared.
Results: Solved. Amazingly, in 2008, Michele was discovered alive and well in Oregon. A neighbor of Michele's saw her picture on a missing persons website and believed that her neighbor was Michele, and then sent a photo to the South Carolina police. Michele was reunited with her family and explained that she was unable to live with herself because of her trouble life before she vanished, so she left for Oregon and started a new life.
