Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Apgar was residing at her mother's home in Newtonsville, Ohio in 1999. She left her mother's residence on November 18, 1999 and was last seen the next day by friends at a at the Cross Country Inn (now Super 8) in the 2300 block of Royal Drive in Fort Mitchell, Kentucky. She departed from the hotel, apparently to meet her ex-husband, Mike George, and and has never been heard from again. She left her son behind when she vanished.
George and Apgar had had a stormy relationship and he was involved with a motorcycle gang based in Cincinnati, Ohio. George was imprisoned twice in the 1990s, and he had just been released from custody when Apgar vanished. Apgar was reportedly very afraid of him and his gang associates, and she told her family to contact police if they didn't hear from her every day. George disappeared at the same time Apgar did, and her family believes he may have been involved in her disappearance, but law enforcement authorities have not identified him as a suspect. They would like to speak with him, however. He is described as a brown-haired, blue-eyed man who was 36 years old at the time of his and Apgar's disappearances. He is 5'9 tall and weighs 170 pounds. Photographs of him are unavailable.
Although police have found no hard evidence of foul play in Apgar's case, her family stated she had been afraid for her life prior to her disappearance and they believe she was murdered. Apgar's parents both died after her disappearance and her son is now serving in the military. Her 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.
