She had recently had an argument with her mother, as her mother wanted her to take her medication but Evans didn't want to. On the way out the door she said, "I'm terribly sorry, mother. I'll be back soon." She has never been heard from again, Her mother reported her missing two weeks later.

Evans did not have a cellular phone, credit cards or a car at the time of her disappearance and used public transportation. She had been known to leave for a few days a time and had previously traveled to Thailand, Europe and throughout the Americas, including Puerto Rico, Mexico and Ecuador. Her passport has been flagged and authorities could find no evidence that she left the country after her April 2013 disappearance.

Evans is a graduate of California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, California, and had written books and blogs on healthy living and a natural diet. She also enjoyed painting and photography. She had never married but had dated. At the time of her disappearance, she had been living with her mother for about a year.
