On the evening of January 15, 2020, mother of three, April Jean Bailey, stepped out of her apartment to throw away the trash. According to The Charley Project, the 36-year-old was only wearing a pair of slippers, black sweatpants and a black jacket with a fur-trimmed hood indicating she hadn't planned to stay out too long, yet April was never seen again. Her phone and purse were left behind.

In a matter of seconds, April was simply gone, as if she had vanished into thin air. Her children are tormented each day, wondering what happened to her.

The FBI joined the investigation nearly a year later, referring to April’s disappearance as “suspicious.” According to Patch, police dive teams searched a body of water near her home in April 2021, yet nothing of relevance was located.

The search for April continues two years later.

“Our family always sticks together, and without her, there is a big piece of the family gone. We are lost. We keep hoping, we keep praying we’ll find her alive. She had such a good heart, and her children are her world.” — April’s twin sister, Nicole
