Details of Disappearance

Pringle was last seen in Dayton, Ohio at 3:00 a.m. on August 14, 2003. She never picked up her Social Security checks and has never been heard from again. A friend reported her missing on November 7, three months later. At the time of her disappearance, Pringle lived in the 100 block of west Monument Avenue in Dayton.

Michelle Napier, Pringle's sister, disappeared from her Dayton apartment in October 2003. Her body was found wrapped in a tarp behind the Siebenthaler Company Nursery in Harrison Township, Ohio in May 2004. Napier's murder remains unsolved and it's unclear whether it's related to Pringle's disappearance. Few details are available in Pringle's case.
