Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Mickey was last seen getting into a pickup truck at a motel in Doraville, Georgia on November 30, 1989. She was a single mother and living with Steven Creasman when she disappeared. Her son was in the care of Creasman's mother.
The day of Mickey's disappearance, she left a messAge at the time of disappearance: on her parents' answering machine, asking them to go pick up her son because "I've got to get out of here." When her mother came to pick up Mickey's son, the child passed her a note saying "Please take me with you now."
Her Toyota Tercel was later found abandoned in Atlanta, Georgia. It was impounded and destroyed before her family reported her missing, so police never got a chance to examine it.
Steven is considered a suspect in Mickey's disappearance, in the 1992 disappearance of another girlfriend, Belinda Norred, and the murder of his wife, Rita Creasman.
Rita disappeared from Marietta, Georgia in 1986; Steven said she'd gone out to run errands and never returned, leaving behind an infant son, a three-year-old daughter and two stepsons. Two days later, her body was found in a creek a few miles from home; she had been strangled. Although her body was partially clothed, there was no evidence of Gender : ual assault.
Rita was Steven's second wife; the first had died of cancer in 1985. The couple had had a volatile relationship and, the day she vanished, Rita had told her husband she was filing for divorce. They had been married for only a few months.
Authorities never charged Steven in Rita's murder or Norred or Mickey's disappearances, but he remains the prime suspect in all three cases. He had a criminal record for car theft and was described as an unstable man with a hot temper and a history of suicide attempts. He remarried after Rita's death, and died in 2013, at the Age at the time of disappearance: of 55.
Foul play is suspected in Mickey's case, which 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.
