Details of Disappearance

Parlier was last seen walking away from her residence in the Urbandale neighborhood of Battle Creek, on June 12, 2005, after getting into an argument with her parents. Her parents had noticed she appeared to be pregnant, and they confronted her and told her they wanted to see a doctor and get prenatal treatment; this was what the argument was about. She has never been heard from again.

At the time of her disappearance, Parlier had no driver's license, no car or access to one, no cellular phone, and no credit cards, but she did have about $700 in cash on her. Shortly after she was last seen, investigators received tips that she was camping in the Houghton Lake area, but none of the sightings were confirmed.

Parlier is described as a shy, quiet person with few friends. Her ex-boyfriend, who may be the father of her unborn child, has not been ruled out as a suspect in her disappearance. Her father took a polygraph test and passed, but her mother refused to take one. Her mother has since died.

Parlier is a graduate of Battle Creek Central High School and was employed at a Taco Bell restaurant in the 800 block of Capital Avenue northeast in June 2005. She was saving up money to get her own car. Since Parlier went missing, there has been no activity on her Social Security number. The circumstances surrounding her disappearance are unclear.
