This is a special bonus episode of Southern Gone celebrating our one year anniversary!

Patricia “Patti” Adkins went missing on June 29, 2001. She was last seen clocking out of the Honda Plant where she worked in Marysville, Ohio. Patti had been having an affair with a married co-worker and had told her sister he was planning to leave his wife for her.

She had recently lent her boyfriend over $90,000 for his business. This money was supposed to help him be more financially secure so he would be able to divorce his wife and be with Patti. Just before she disappeared she told her sister she was going on a vacation to Canada with her boyfriend. She asked her sister to watch her seven year old daughter and let her know she would not have cell service while she was away.

After Patti failed to return from her vacation her sister reported her missing on July 8. When her boyfriend was questioned he denied having an affair with Patti and said he hardly knew her.  She has never been seen or heard from since. Foul play is suspected.

If you have information on the disappearance of Patricia Adkins, contact the Union County Sheriff's Office crime tip hotline at 937-642-7653.
