    Details of Disappearance

    Farthing was last seen at a friend's house in the 100 block of Dillon Court in Berea, Kentucky in the early morning hours of June 22, 2013. She had attended a party the night before and sent multiple text messages overnight trying to get a ride home, saying she felt scared. She wanted her ex-fiance to pick her up, but he didn't get off work until later in the morning. The last text from her phone was sent at 5:30 a.m., saying "Never mind, I’m okay. I’m going to a party in Rockcastle County."

    Farthing's friend left the the house to take care of a horse. When he left the house, he said, Farthing was sitting on the couch smoking. When he returned at 7:00 a.m., the house was on fire and Farthing was missing, but her cowboy boots, purse and some clothes were still there. The only item missing was her cellular phone. She has never been heard from again and an extensive search of the area turned up no sign of her.

    The house fire began on the couch and almost completely consumed it, and burned a hole in the floor underneath, but it was extinguished before it got out of control. It was ruled suspicious. The homeowner was in the process of moving out, and as a result, utilities to the house had been turned off for weeks and there was no electricity there at all. Investigators believe Farthing may have been taken against her will, and they think the last text message sent from her phone was sent by someone else.

    Farthing is a graduate of Madison Southern High School. Her family doesn't believe she would have left the house without her belongings and they stated she had no reason to walk out of her life. Her case remains unsolved.
