    Details of Disappearance

    Steppach was last seen in Little Rock, Arkansas on October 24, 2015. She had wanted to live on her own, and she'd moved out of her parents' home and in with her brother. She was at her brother's house on the morning of her disappearance, then went to visit her grandmother in west Little Rock. Her stepfather was supposed to meet her there, but by the time he arrived she was gone. Her family never saw her again.

    Steppach called her brother on the evening of October 25 and spoke to him for four minutes; she sounded disoriented during the conversation and said she was lost. She wouldn't say where she was or who she was with. This was her last contact with her family; Steppach has never been heard from again. A few days after her disappearance, her silver 2003 Volkswagen Passat with the license plate number 137UFM and her and belongings, including her cellular phone and contact lenses, were found off Chenal Parkway in west Little Rock.

    Steppach was a senior at Central High School at the time of her disappearance; she had previously attended Little Scholars of Arkansas (LISA) Academy, a charter school that focuses on math, science, engineering and computer technology. Her family fears she may have become the victim of human trafficking. Her case remains unsolved.
