    Equusearch Volunteer's Sister Identified 23 Years After She Went Missing

    Angela Phillips Identified By Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences

    On Monday, Phillips and his family finally got the news they had been waiting to hear. Angela had been found. They would also learn that her body had actually been discovered six days after she disappeared in 1986, and just a mile from where she was last seen alive. But for years Angela would remain unidentified, buried in an unmarked grave.

    Four years ago, Texas Equusearch founder, Tim Miller, asked to have the cold case reopened for the Phillips family.

    Forensic anthropologists with the Harris County Institute of Forensic Sciences combed through missing persons cases comparing information with where unidentified remains were found. Finally, bits and pieces of the puzzle began falling into place. The Phillips family was contacted by the forensic team and asked to identify belongings in a photograph.

    TX - Houston, UID female in field, Sept'86 - Angela Phillips

    RIP Angela! You finally have your name back after all these years.

    Story below:

    HOUSTON - For years Texas Equusearch has helped the families of missing loved ones. Wednesday, a volunteer with the organization finally got some closure of his own 23 years after his sister went missing.

    Angela Phillips' whereabouts has remained a mystery for James Phillips and his family for two agonizing decades. Phillips was the last person to see his older sister on September 18, 1986.

    "It had to be summer of 1986, that's the last time I seen her. She came home to change clothes and say goodbye," said James Phillips.

    Angela's family never stopped searching. Her older brother, Darryl Phillips, joined Texas Equusearch in the hopes of helping other families find their missing loved ones.

    "It was always at the back of my mind that while we're out searching that maybe we might stumble across my sister's remains," said Darryl Phillips.

    How wonderful for her family to finally have some closure, and maybe justice too, if they are eyeing a POI

    Wasn't she reported missing? I don't understand how they could have failed to connect a body and a missing person a mile apart, six days apart.
