On November 20, 2012, Sage Smith left her home at 5:30 for a date. She was seen alone at 6:30 talking to someone on the phone and then possibly sighted one more time at 7:00 at a cafe, again alone. Her father and friends were advocates and attempted to investigate her disappearance on their own, but ended up in the same place where the police ended up. At a dead end. No one has seen her since and police are still looking to speak with the man she last communicated with that day.
Sage was supposed to be meeting up with Erik McFadden that night. The exchanged texts and Erik has had an ever changing story about what happened that night and whether or not he actually met up with Sage at all.
Police are still looking for Erik. They consider him a person of interest and think he may have been a witness to whatever happened to Sage.
There is a $10,000 reward for information leading to a conclusion in the case. Anyone with information on Smith or McFadden should contact Detective Ronald Stayments at 970-3280 or Crimestoppers at 977-4000.
