    Details of Disappearance

    Lindsey was last seen at approximately 6:00 p.m. on October 10, 2004 at a gas station in parking lot of a Wal-Mart store the vicinity of the 100 block of Veterans Drive north in Huntingdon, Tennessee. She was accompanied by an unidentified male at the time. She has never been heard from again. Lindsey's white four-door 1983 Lincoln Town Car with a burgundy vinyl top was located on October 13, 2004 parked at an acquaintance's residence near the intersection of Grooms Road and Bobbitt Road in Carroll County, Tennessee. The individual was questioned but not charged in her disappearance.

    Authorities believe Lindsey may be in danger, as her family says it is uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning. She spoke to her daughter on the day she disappeared and said she was planning to visit her grandchildren in the near future. Lindsey's husband has been ruled out as suspect in her case, but a male acquaintance had his house searched by police. He has not been publicly identified.

    Lindsey previously owned an Atwood, Tennessee restaurant called P.J.'s. Her case remains unsolved.
