Angela was last seen in the parking lot of the Pizza Hut restaurant in her hometown of Petal, Mississippi at approximately 1:00 a.m. on September 10, 1993. She was speaking with her former boyfriend at the time. Angela's silver 1984 Honda Accord hatchback was discovered abandoned, with the windows rolled down, at the Old Mahned Bridge over the Leaf River in Perry County, Mississippi at approximately 6:40 a.m. that morning. A photograph of the Honda is posted below this case summary. A pool of liquid on the ground near the car that police initially thought was transmission fuel; it turned out to be blood, and DNA testing proved that the blood belonged to Angela. More blood was in the car itself. Days later, tracking dogs brought to the bridge found one of Angela's white Keds slip-on sneakers in the tall weeds near where the car had been parked. The other shoe was beyond a locked gate leading to a private camp. Angela's purse and keys were never found, and a search of the Leaf River turned up no sign of a body.
Angela is not believed to have left of her own accord. She made a car payment and a layaway purchase shortly before her disappearance and bought groceries, which would make no sense if she was planning to run away. She also left behind a paycheck for over two hundred dollars. Angela's parents suspect that a man who was seen washing his truck in Gulfport, Mississippi at 2:00 a.m. the morning Angela vanished was involved in her disappearance. He had been hunting near the Old Mahned bridge earlier. He has never been located or identified.
