summoned to the house to end the dispute. Owens told authorities that he saw Belcher walk down Highland Avenue at approximately 2:30 a.m. The temperatures were at the freezing mark at the time.

One of Belcher’s friends told investigators that he gave her a ride shortly after 2:30 a.m. Another friend reported seeing her walking along Vermont Street towards Florida Route 16 around daybreak. Belcher has never been heard from again.
Owens reported Belcher as a missing person two days after her initial disappearance. He stated that his wife had a history of leaving their home for several days after arguments. While authorities said that Owens and Belcher had a stormy relationship, Owens cooperated with the investigation into Belcher’s disappearance and was not considered a suspect.
Authorities said that they believed foul play was involved in Belcher’s disappearance. Extensive searches of the area produced no clues as to her whereabouts. Investigators received tips that Belcher may have relocated to the Daytona Beach, Florida or Fort Lauderdale, Florida areas to work as a dancer. The leads did not produce any evidence as to her whereabouts. Her family members said that it is uncharacteristic of Belcher to leave for an extended period of time without warning.
Belcher was born in the former West Germany and moved to the United States with her parents during her childhood. She was employed as a dancer and a server in a restaurant. Belcher’s case remains unsolved.
