    According to the family’s private investigator a man claiming to be Phoenix’s father created a fake Facebook page using her picture. The unnamed man also said he knew where the 23 year old was. The family invested money in pursuit of what appeared to be a good lead, but it all turned out to be a lie.

    “It’s a scary thing because we thought that he might have Phoenix with him. The person he was presenting as his long lost daughter was a picture of Phoenix,” said Coldon.

    Phoenix Coldon, 23, was last seen in the driveway of the family's St. Louis County home at about 3 p.m. Dec. 18. Her mother said she was sitting in her vehicle one minute and the next, she was gone.

    Coldon said she initially thought her daughter had gone to the store but when she did not return that night, Coldon said she reported her daughter and her black 1998 Chevy Blazer missing to police the following morning.


    According to Coldon, her daughter's disappearance is highly out of character.

    "She is very responsible, very sweet, very athletic and very intelligent," she said.

    Very sad, but predictable. My grandmother's first husband went missing back in the early 1930's. He was never found, but for years she had to deal with people all over the country contacting her with similar scams. Her brothers traveled to several different states over the years to check out these "leads", but none panned out.

    Some men wrote letters pretending to be her husband, asking her to send them money, etc. The family kept certain information confidential, so when they received calls or letters, they could ask the person to answer certain questions (names and ages of his children, etc.).

    It's a shame Phoenix's parents let their emotions get ahead of them. It sounds as though the PI and the guy who created the fake Facebook page were in cahoots. It's also strange that the E. St. Louis police haven't said anything about her disappearance. Something is up. That area is notorious for organized crime/mob activity connected to the after hours gambling/prostitution/strip club business there. Someone knows what happened to her.

    I am so sad about Phoenix's case. I don't know why there isn't more being done, I spread the word on FB and via email. And pray. I don't know anything else to do.






    All kinds of hugs!

    SPANISH LAKE In the foyer of Lawrence and Goldia Coldon's modest home, a Christmas tree stands lined with lights and ornaments. Outside, green holiday trim adorns a pillar on the porch.

    Good article, learned some details I didn't know:

    When Phoenix Coldon moved out at 18, she had told her parents she was going to live with a girlfriend. Goldia Coldon even signed the lease. But since she has been missing, her parents have learned she was staying in the apartment with a boyfriend until moving back home last year.
    Unbeknownst to them, Phoenix Coldon also had not enrolled in fall classes at the University of Missouri-St. Louis, where she is classified as a junior.
    The Coldons say they have not been in touch with the boyfriend since her disappearance, but they know he is still in the area. They have reached out, Goldia Coldon said, but received no response. The Post-Dispatch also could not reach him for comment.
    St. Louis County Detective Robert Vogel said the boyfriend is not currently considered a suspect in Phoenix Coldon's disappearance.
    Goldia Coldon said she's unclear on whether Phoenix Coldon was still dating the man, who's in his mid-20s. She doesn't believe he had anything to do with her daughter's disappearance, but she fears his influence may have gotten her involved with the wrong people.

    Parents continue search for missing St. Louis County woman

    In the foyer of Lawrence and Goldia Coldon's modest home, a Christmas tree stands lined with lights and ornaments. Outside, green holiday trim adorns a pillar on the porch.

    Never mind that it's well into spring. The decorations distract from the reality that nearly five months have passed since their only child, Phoenix Coldon, 23, disappeared.

    I just learned about Phoenix and have read the thread and gone on to the FB site. Wow, this is heartbreaking!

    I understand that her mom saw her last in her driveway speaking on her cell phone that day. Did they ever reveal who was she speaking to? I wonder what her phone records revealed about cell use that day - what could those people offer about Phoenix's mindset that day?
    I read about the rumors that Phoenix was staying with her friend and left on her own accord to escape a controlling home life...if that's the case, wouldn't she have some record of using her SSN since then? And why abandon her car? Not sure that scenario matches the evidence in my mind.
    This is such a strange and sad case...
    ...wish that there was a standard, minimum protocol for missing persons that LE had to follow. Some cases get so much attention and others are lost in shuffle. It seems that the rumor that Phoenix is with a friend has allowed LE to forget this case.
    What can we do here at WS to help find Phoenix??? Maybe her family and friends could organize a search in the area where her car was found and get the media involved to increase exposure for this beautiful young lady.
    Praying for Phoenix's safe return to her family.
    Hubby: "So LE knows that 99.99% of the time it's the spouse".
    Me: "Right, so don't even try anything"

    6 months she has been missing...and I don't believe this family has been able to get any help at all. I wonder if they have contacted any professional groups.
    Just my opinion, of course.
