Megan was living with her stepfather and her mother. And they lived in Fairfield, ILlinois. Her mom and stepdad last saw her at 10:30 P.M. When Megan’s mom went into her bedroom to say goodnight at 11:15 P.M., Megan was gone. She left behind a note. Directed to her mom, the note said that Megan loved her mom but would never be happy at home. Megan’s mother believes that it’s possible that Megan didn’t really write the note. Or if she did, she wrote it under duress. Megan’s mom stated that she wasn’t a troubled teen. Nor was she having troubles at home.

Voluntary Disappearance?

Nevertheless, authorities believed that Megan’s was a voluntary disappearance. Surveillance video showed Megan riding her bicycle. And she was riding it up to a local bank and withdrawing money from the ATM machine. This was the last time she was seen. Megan’s mother reported her missing at 1:00 A.M. on July 4. Megan didn’t have a job at the time of her disappearance. Nor did she have a Driver’s License or a car. SHe had left her cellular phone at home. And before she disappeared, she had wiped it.

It was believed that Megan was in Carbondale, Illinois. Authorities thought that she might be there because that is where her her biological father was. Authorities thought she may be with him. He is a registered sex offender. But he could not be located for some time. This was because because he had moved without registering his new address. And that is required by law. EVentually, police located Megan’s father in Oklahoma. They questioned him.
But they could not find any evidence that he knew his daughter’s whereabouts.

Let’s Help Bring Her Home

Authorities drop the ball in some cases they classify as voluntary disappearances. Have they failed Megan? The passage of years should suggest that she may be missing for other reasons. But at least they still have her classified as a missing person. I know of cases where authorities close some missing cases without the person being brought home at all. If you see Megan, call 9-1-1 immediately. Have information that can help locate Megan?
Please contact the Fairfield Police Department. Call them at: (618) 842-2151.

Megan’s parents love her dearly! Their profile photo says: “We Love You, Megan.” Unfortunately, now they have charged their Facebook profile so it is not publicly viewable. How can this help find their daughter if we are no longer empowered to push awareness for her.
