Details of Disappearance

Yelding was last seen in Theodore, Alabama on April 3, 2017. She was staying at a friend's house on Raybon Road. Her friend stated Yelding had a panic attack and ran into the woods behind the house, leaving all of her belongings, including her purse, driver's license and medication. She has never been heard from again.

It's uncharacteristic of Yelding to leave without warning; her family relied on her to help them communicate with her father, who is deaf. She had always been active on social media, but that activity stopped when she disappeared. The circumstances of her disappearance are unclear.
