Mikelle Biggs
On January 2, 1999 11-year-old Mikelle Biggs was playing outside with her 9-year-old sister, Kimber. Mikelle was on Kimber's bike while Kimber walked the dog on a leash. The girls could hear an ice cream truck in the distance, but Kimber got cold while waiting and went inside. When Kimber got back to the house, her mom told her to go back and tell Mikelle it was time to come in. Investigators estimate that Kimber was only gone for 90 seconds. In those 90 seconds, Mikelle vanished. In this episode, I'm joined by Kimber to discuss her sister's case.If you have any information regarding the disappearance of Mikelle Biggs, please call the Mesa Police Department at 480-644-2211.Kimber runs a Facebook page for Mikelle, you can follow here: Justice for Mikelle BiggsThis episode was sponsored by:Stamps.com- Use the code Vanished to take advantage of the special offer including up to $55 in free postage, a digital scale and a 4 week trial.

there hasn't been anything about megan since she disappeared... where are her mom and step dad?? yes, she's part of the drug problem, but she's not a priority. I've talked to you about ms. stalig before, it's the same thing. just another drug casualty in the state of maine. there are so many. yes, maybe she's doing the drug thing in new York but she isn't safe regardless. this state is a haven for drugs it seems, our police are under funded because our population is low. it is what it is. I follow this podcast religiously and I'm a mom, we all deserve our daughters and sons to come home. Dan, if you want help, reach out. I'm just a few towns away.

"she LIVED just for those girls." not "she lives just for those girls." There's a very telling sentence.

Being around a cemetery, funeral home, or otherwise exposed to human death is not even remotely considered to be a factor in a person becoming a killer, serial or otherwise. Also, fast food and nutrition is not a factor in the probability of becoming a criminal. The apathy and lack of connection with the parents could be considered a factor, but the other claims here are ridiculous attempts to blame the parents for what the murderer became. This episode gives so much misinformation regarding forensic and behavioral analysis. I'm disappointed.

something that Ive noticed about missing children cases is the standards that the media hold the parents to... they expect them to have been these perfect parents. and, if theres 1 thing that the parents do/have done that seem less than perfect then the media runs with it...

i dont understand why walmart couldnt look this up on their camera system. i worked for asset protection at walmart and our video surveillance was top notch and not hard at all to navigate... you could see everything in the parking lot....

why would a mom leave her son alone when there's a big fire, to go get groceries?

Statement analysis would indicate that they already know he is gone and know exactly where he is.

That lady Emma on the Christopher Abeyta story did it for sure! She was jealous of the family! Especially since the father went back to see his family. They probably got a argument about him leaving his wife and she wasn't having it! all the girls were to old to take or even get away with.
