Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Hughes was last seen in Bowling Green, Kentucky in early July 2017. Her own car was in the shop for repairs, and she borrowed her mother's car that day. Two men were with her when she picked it up.
Over the next few days, Hughes's mother tried to call her several times. On July 8, Hughes returned her call and said she would return the car as soon as possible. She also said she was trying to get her boyfriend, Ismael Beltran, to leave her house, but couldn't talk about it. Just after midnight on July 9, Hughes's mother heard a car in her driveway. She looked out the window and saw that her car had been returned.
On the afternoon of July 11, Hughes's father and her adult son went to her home to check on her, as her parents hadn't been able to get in touch with her. All the lights were off, but the television was on. Hughes's keys were in the living room and her dogs had been left alone, which is uncharacteristic of her. Her bedroom door was locked from the inside, but her father and her son were able to force it open. There were no indications of a struggle.
There has been no indication of Hughes's whereabouts since then, and Beltran has not been seen since July 8. The last person to see him was his ex-wife; he told her he needed to get out of town because he had no work.
Hughes has never gone missing before. The circumstances of her and Beltran's disappearances are unclear.

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.
