    Details of Disappearance

    Mickey was last seen getting into a pickup truck at a motel in Doraville, Georgia on November 30, 1989. She was a single mother and living with Steven Creasman when she disappeared. That day she left a message on her parents' answering machine, asking them to to take care of her son because "I've got to get out of here." Her pickup truck was later found abandoned in Atlanta, Georgia. It was impounded and destroyed before her family reported her missing, so police never got a chance to examine it.

    Steven is considered a suspect in Mickey's disappearance, in the 1992 disappearance of another girlfriend, Belinda Norred, and the murder of his wife, Rita Creasman. Rita disappeared from Marietta, Georgia in 1986; Steven said she'd gone out to run errands and never returned, leaving behind an infant son, a three-year-old daughter and two stepsons. Two days later, her body was found in a creek a few miles from home; she had been strangled. Although she was partially clothed, there was no evidence of sexual assault. Rita was Steven's second wife; the first had died of cancer in 1985. The couple had had a volatile relationship and, the day she vanished, Rita had told her husband she was filing for divorce. They had been married for only a few months.

    Authorities have insufficient evidence to charge Steven in Rita's murder or Norred or Mickey's disappearances, but he remains the prime suspect in all three cases. He has a criminal record for car theft and is described as an unstable man with a hot temper and a history of suicide attempts. He is now married for the third time, still lives in Georgia and works in the construction business.

    Foul play is suspected in Mickey's case, which remains unsolved.
