Details of Disappearance

Marlena was last seen by a family friend at the Piggly Wiggly store in Pelham, Georgia on December 1, 2020. She lived in a camper on her father's property in Meigs, Georgia at the time of her disappearance. She left her phone behind and has never been heard from again.

Although due to her substance abuse problem it's not uncharacteristic of Marlena to drop out of sight for a few days at a time, but her family stated she has never been gone for this long.

In October 2021, almost a year after his sister disappeared, Marlena's brother Greg went missing from the family's home in Meigs and has not been found. Little evidence is available in the cases and it's not clear if they are related, but both siblings struggled with addiction prior to their disappearances.
