Elizabeth was last seen by her roommate at their residence in Mount Pleasant, Iowa at 10:30 p.m. on July 17, 2000, as the roommate was leaving to go to work. When her roommate returned at 4:00 a.m. the following day, Elizabeth was gone. She left all of her personal belongings behind and has never been heard from again. There has been no activity on Elizabeth's bank account and she never claimed her paycheck from her employer. She did not have access to a car when she disappeared. When authorities examined Elizabeth's East Madison Street apartment after her disappearance, they found her door locked from the outside, indicating she left voluntarily.
Authorities cannot find any evidence of foul play in Elizabeth's disappearance but her family is convinced was murdered by her estranged husband, Michael Syperda. Elizabeth's family describes Michael as dangerous and violent. He was arrested and charged with domestic abuse not long after his wife disappeared. The arrest was in connection with a violent confrontation with Elizabeth and her roommate a month before she vanished. Michael pleaded guilty to assault in that case and was sentenced probation and a suspended prison term. He has been cooperative in the investigation into his wife's disappearance and has never been charged in connection with it.
