Details of Disappearance

Dee was last seen at her home on Mugner Road in Tipton, Michigan in the early morning hours of April 25, 2021. The evening before, she, her husband and one or two of their employees got into a business-related argument.

Her husband, Dale Warner, said he left the house at 6:30 a.m. and at the time, Dee was asleep on the couch. When he came back home, she was gone. She has never been heard from again. She left all the family vehicles behind, and since her disappearance there has been no activity on her cellular phone, bank account or credit cards. She also left behind her young daughter.

Dee ran her own trucking company and agricultural business at the time of her disappearance. Her loved ones stated her marriage was extremely troubled: Dale allegedly stalked her and put a tracking device on her car, there had been episodes of domestic violence, and Dee was considering divorce.

Her family doesn't believes she would have simply walked out of her life and abandoned her daughter over her marriage problems, however, No suspects have been named in her case, but authorities stated Dale is a person of interest and has been interviewed several times.

Foul play is suspected in Dee's case; a private investigator hired by her family believes Dale killed her during a domestic violence episode and hid her body. No charges have been filed in the case, however; Dee's disappearance remains unsolved.
