Bonus Episode: Veta Belford
19 Year-Old Veta Belford was dropped off by her father at her Home Depot job in Sacramento, California at 2pm on October 17, 2020. She was to work her shift there until her mom Agnes picked her up when her shift ended at 11pm. When Agnes arrived, Veta was nowhere to be found, and an employee told her that Veta was fired at around 4pm that day. Agnes was shocked and had no idea where her daughter was. It soon became apparent that Veta's personal belongings, laptop, wallet and ID, were still in Veta's room. Desperate for answers, Agnes hired an investigator who didn't help much leaving Agnes to do a lot of footwork on her own and following clues that led to a nearby bus station and a mystery Greyhound ticket to New York. Veta's Mom, Agnes discusses the case with us in this episode
UPDATE: As we prepared to release this episode this week, the last week of January,2021, Veta was found safe, and has communicated with her mom. Apparently, Veta chose to go missing of her own free will. We respect her right as an adult to go missing, and hope that she's happy and healthy, and that news she is safe is a relief for her family. This episode serves as a good reminder that sometimes people who vanish do so willingly.
