In 1978, Michelle Ellis was living with her parents and working as a model part-time while she was studying at the Herron School of Art at Indiana-Purdue University. Michelle had also worked at a Sears department store in Indianapolis, Indiana, but she decided to leave her job and reportedly quit on July 28. On August 2, Michelle Ellis was last seen leaving her home around 8:00 a.m. and just an hour later, her vehicle—1973 Oldsmobile Omega—was located near a service station. It had run out of gas. No one has seen the 23-year-old since that time.
Upon inspection, it was noted that Michelle’s vehicle’s driver side door was locked, however, the passenger side was accessible. Her personal items were still inside including her purse, car keys, driver’s license, checkbooks, credit cards, identification, and $2 in cash. Michelle Ellis seemingly vanished without a trace, that is, until a little over two years after she went missing. It was then that her parents reportedly received a phone call from someone who said, “This is Michelle.” While authorities never confirmed that the caller was indeed Michelle Ellis, the call adds to the mystery surrounding this case.
At the time of her disappearance, Michelle Eliis stood 5 feet 4 inches tall and weighed 115 pounds. She had black/dark brown hair and brown eyes. Michelle was last seen wearing a gray sweater with multi-colored stripes and black cuffs, blue jeans, and white tennis shoes. She would be 66-years-old at this time of this publication.
Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department at (317) 327-6160 or their local authorities.
Please share this story about Michelle Ellis to help reignite the investigation into her disappearance. She is our sister and her life matters.
Mabel Andrews, 16: Conflicting Reports About 1970s Missing Person Case
Information regarding this case can be quite confusing to pin down.
Agencies reporting on Mabel Andrews can’t seem to agree about the information in her case. Some say she was 16 when she went missing from Orlando, Florida in 1976, while another claims she was 17. Additionally, court documents reportedly state that the teen’s brother, Tommie Lee Andrews, told authorities that Mabel disappeared on Christmas Eve in 1974 when she was 14-years-old, and her name is spelled “Mable.” With so much confusion about an age or missing person date, one can only imagine the misinformation that has been shared over the years.
