Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Willis was last seen in Rolla, Missouri on September 28, 2005. Her daughter reported her missing after she'd been unable to get in touch with her for a month. Willis's roommate claimed Willis simply moved without saying where she was going; she has never been heard from again.
Although there's no hard evidence of foul play in her case, it's uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning. Her family believes she could have gone to meet someone she got to know over the internet. Most of Willis's belongings were left behind, but she did take her computer and her car with her. The car is a gray four-door 1988 Chevrolet Nova with the Missouri license plate number 473-YEM.
Willis's case remains unsolved.

A missing person is a person who has disappeared and whose status as alive or dead cannot be confirmed as their location and condition are not known. A person may go missing through a voluntary disappearance, or else due to an accident, crime, death in a location where they cannot be found (such as at sea), or many other reasons. In most parts of the world, a missing person will usually be found quickly. While criminal abductions are some of the most widely reported missing person cases, these account for only 2–5% of missing children in Europe.
By contrast, some missing person cases remain unresolved for many years. Laws related to these cases are often complex since, in many jurisdictions, relatives and third parties may not deal with a person's assets until their death is considered proven by law and a formal death certificate issued. The situation, uncertainties, and lack of closure or a funeral resulting when a person goes missing may be extremely painful with long-lasting effects on family and friends.
Several organizations seek to connect, share best practices, and disseminate information and imAge at the time of disappearance: s of missing children to improve the effectiveness of missing children investigations, including the International Commission on Missing Persons, the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), as well as national organizations, including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in the US, Missing People in the UK, Child Focus in Belgium, and The Smile of the Child in Greece.
