Most of us remember what it was like waking up Christmas morning, waking our parents and running hurriedly to the tree to open our gifts, some of us even left milk and cookies for Santa and Mrs. Claus the night before. All of the excitement, Joy and Love that fills the room.
Tabitha Lynn Franklin has 3 children whom have awakened 4 Christmas mornings in a row; this year will make 5 without their mommy.
Tabby went missing on Aug.13 2009. She was last seen by her abusive ex boyfriend Chris Poore Merrell who made a statement via telephone to Randy Frost (lead detective) that he picked Tabby up from a freinds house (never searched) and took her to his business (not searched until 3 months after she went missing) in HueyTown Alabama and when he returned from doing some errands Tabitha was gone when asked to come in to the Sherrifs office to make a formal statement he refused stating he was hiring a lawyer. To this day Chris has not been questioned Stacy will tell us about her journey in fighting to find her sister inlaw and bringing the person responsible for her disappearance to justice.
Phoenix Coldon, 25, was last seen sitting in her vehicle in the driveway of her family's North St. Louis County home on Dec. 18, 2011. Her father saw her pulling out of the driveway in her 1998 Chevy Blazer. He figured she was going to the store or a friend's house, but when Phoenix still hadn't returned home later that night, her parents became increasingly worried and reported their daughter missing the next day. It has been 1yr 11 months and 22 days and This bright talented girl is still missing.
The media did report a possible connection back in 2012 with the Stacy English Case however the Coldons still prefer not to link their daughter to the disappearance and death of Stacy English and they do have a strong firm belief that Phoenix is still alive and is not being allowed to contact them or to come home.
