Details of Disappearance

Franklin's ex-boyfriend picked her up from a friend's home in West Point, Alabama on August 13, 2009. He claims he dropped her off at his place of business in Hueytown, Alabama and went to run errands, and when he came back she was gone. She has never been heard from again.

Police stated there's no evidence of foul play in Franklin's case, but her family is concerned for her safety, as it's uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning. Franklin left behind three children. Her case remains unsolved.
