On May 17th, 2001, 17-year-old Alissa Turney would go to school as usual. Her dad Mike Turney picked her up early. According to him, they had a fight, and she ran away, never to be seen or heard from again. Eventually the case became a cold case. But years later, evidence would start to pile up, making family of friends of the Turney's feel very suspicious of Mike, and the claim that Alissa simply ran away.
