Details of Disappearance

Stants was last seen in the Biloxi/Gulfport area of Mississippi sometime between 1983 and 1985. Her family had recently emigrated to the United States, and Stants's husband was in the Navy. She was supposed to visit her sister in Dallas, Texas, but never arrived there and has never been heard from again. She may have never left Biloxi.

Stants's husband has refused to speak to her family about her, and she was not reported missing until 2019. Little information is available in her case.
