    Details of Disappearance

    Faulkner was last seen in Troy, Alabama on July 4, 2016. She had just moved in with her parents after breaking up with her live-in boyfriend. On the day of Faulkner's disappearance, her family went to an Independence Day barbeque and Faulkner stayed home. She was still home when her parents arrived home that evening; they last spoke to her at 5:30 p.m., and she made a post to her Facebook account from her parents' IP address around at the same time. She has never been heard from again.

    Faulkner didn't take a vehicle with her, but her purse, cellular phone and tablet device disappeared with her. Her family isn't sure if someone picked her up at the house or if she went for a walk and someone picked her up while she was away. Although Faulkner had regularly posted on her social media accounts, all of them have been inactive since that last Facebook post at 5:30 p.m. on the day of her disappearance. She hasn't accessed her bank accounts either. Few details are available in her case.
