Details of Disappearance

Roarx was last seen in Horse Branch, Kentucky on June 4, 2013. She went out to get cigarettes and cold drinks. She did arrive at the store, four miles from home, and its security cameras filmed her buying drinks and then driving away in the direction of home, but she never made it home and has never been heard from again.

The white 2000 Dodge Caravan Roarx was driving was later found abandoned eighty miles away from Roarx's residence, at the 109 mile marker off Interstate 65 in Bullitt County, Kentucky. Her family can't think of a reason why she would have driven there, and the van's seat was pushed all the way back, indicating that whoever drove the vehicle last was taller than Roarx.

The van's windows were rolled down and her purse was inside it, but her wallet was gone. The ignition key was broken and was found in two pieces in different parts of the van.

Roarx left behind four children, and her family describes her as a devoted parent who wouldn't have abandoned them. She hasn't used her credit cards since her disappearance. Her case remains unsolved.
