Details of Disappearance

Cassie was last seen in Stuttgart, Arkansas sometime after 6:00 p.m. of September 14, 2014, after spending the day at a demolition derby with friends. A short time after she arrived home, she left again, telling her mother she was going to the store to pick up some things. She had a black LG smart phone with no charger. She never returned home and has never been heard from again.

It's uncharacteristic of Cassie to leave without warning; her mother said they always kept in touch. She lived with her mother and her mother's then-fiance at the time of her disappearance; her father lived in Oklahoma. She was home-schooled and working to obtain a GED certificate.

A person of interest in Cassie's disappearance is Brandon Rhodes, her mother's then-fiance; he and her mother have since ended their relationship. He has been jailed multiple times in the years since Cassie disappeared, but authorities haven't stated what, if any, evidence implicates him in her case. Cassie's disappearance remains unsolved.
