ST. LOUIS COUNTY (KMOX) - Today marks the one-year anniversary of the disappearance of Phoenix Coldon, the University of Missouri – St. Louis student and North St. Louis County resident.
Coldon, who was 23-years-old at the time and 24 today, went missing on December 18th of last year. She was last seen in the driveway of her family’s home at about 3 in the afternoon. Three hours later, her black 1998 Chevy Blazer was impounded by East St. Louis police after it was found at Ninth Street and St. Clair Avenue, about 25 minutes from the home. Coldon’s keys were in the ignition of the running vehicle and the driver’s door was open.
In April, the Coldon family reported they had spent their life savings in search for their daughter with much of the money going toward a lead in the case which turned out to be a hoax.
Police released a statement this morning, saying “investigators will continue to seek out new information relative to this case” and reminding anyone with information to call Crimestoppers at (866) 371-TIPS.
Phoenix Coldon is 5-foot-6-inches tall and weighed about 125 pounds at the time of her disappearance. She has reddish-brown hair and piercings in her ears.
