Details of disappearance and psychic work by Brian Ladd (login to view entire case as of May 2020)


Lowery was last seen in Olive Branch, Mississippi on February 2, 1999. She lived on a 25-acre property in the 8900 block of Center Hill Road with her eight-year-old daughter, her nine-year-old son and her boyfriend, Sheldon Wright VanHoute. He is not the father of either of the children. Lowery disappeared on her daughter's birthday. A short time later, VanHoute moved with her children to a hotel in Cheyenne, Wyoming. He didn't enroll the children in school and ordered them not to leave the hotel during the day while he was at work.
Lowery's daughter escaped from VanHoute in October 1999. She told authorities that he had been sexually abusing her for months. He was convicted of sexual assault against the girl in 2000 and sentenced to six life terms in prison. Investigators learned VanHoute's real name was Steven "Troy" DeLoge. He is a suspect in the disappearance of his half-sister, Elizabeth Eisel. Their mother gave Eisel up for adoption when she was born and Eisel found DeLoge after she grew up and began looking for her birth relatives. They became romantically involved and passed themselves off as a married couple, and Eisel changed her name to Danielle DeLoge. She gave birth to Steven's son in 1983, but their relationship had deteriorated by the time she disappeared from Bellevue, Washington in September 1985.
