A promising lead about the whereabouts of Phoenix Coldon turned out to be a cruel hoax, causing the missing Missouri woman’s family additional pain, their entire life savings and their home.
“Unfortunately, we will now be losing our family home,” the missing woman’s mother, Goldia Coldon, told The Huffington Post. “We have tried to explain the situation to our mortgage company but they don’t care.”
A tip that led the family to Texas came from a man who claimed to know Coldon’s whereabouts and provided her family with very convincing details, Goldia Coldon said. The family already had invested much of their money to search for Phoenix, she said, but spent the remainder of their savings on private investigators to follow up on the lead. It was not until after the family’s money was gone that the man who provided the tip admitted he fabricated the story, Coldon said.

A Fulton County Medical Examiner in Buckhead has confirmed that a body found Monday evening is that of missing woman Stacey English, 36.
The ME finished the initial phase of an autopsy on the body Tuesday night, but didn’t confirm that the remains belonged to English until this morning. According Stacey’s family, their daughter received updated dental X-rays two days before she went missing and there was a delay obtaining the new records. The initial autopsy has not revealed her cause of death, and the medical examiner said more tests are needed.
Stacey’s body was discovered in an advanced stage of decomposition and was wedged under a tree only about a mile from the spot where police found her car abandoned still running Dec. 27.
When police notified Stacey’s family that a body was found on Monday, her aunt, Bernice English Hurks, said finding her niece’s body would be a relief in some ways. “The best thing that we could do right now is to find her regardless of what circumstances are, what conditions are, the best thing to do is to find her.”
At least the family doesn’t have to wait in worry any longer, but hopefully police will be able to give the family more answers surrounding her sad death soon.
