    East Texas cold case revisited

    PALESTINE, TX (KLTV)- It'll be 22 years this May since a 16-year-old East Texas girl went for a walk and never returned. Michelle Richardson was last seen near her Palestine home on FM 322 in May 1989. Investigators believe that she disappeared on that same busy highway.

    "She just went walking and she was gone," said Linda Richardson, Michelle's mother. "Until this day I still don't know what happened. I would like to know what happened to her. We all would."

    "She goes for a walk and just disappears off the face of the earth," said Joe Willis, original investigator.

    Michelle Richardson was last seen walking down a busy highway on May 1, 1989. Her mother, Linda, watched her walk away.

    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    I live in Palestine... I have been looking at Michelle's case for years...

    The issue may be that we are right next to Davy Crockett National Forest. I think it's like 250 square miles, crazy thick woods and little creeks everywhere. I think it is very possible that Michelle met with foul play and could be very near where she went missing and still may never be brought home.

    This breaks my heart.

    Bump for just a few days over 27 years gone but not forgotten by some of us.

    The first post says she gave birth six weeks before her disappearance. I wonder the circumstances of that child.
