    A Fort Myers family is hoping 21st century technology can help police solve a 31-year old missing persons case.

    Margie Phillips was last seen on April 22, 1976. She was heading to a bank in downtown Fort Myers with her boyfriend. But no account activity was recorded that day, and nobody has seen her since.

    Now, detectives are turning to DNA, taking a sample from one of Phillips' sisters to compare to unsolved cases.

    Investigators have interviewed Margie Phillips' then-boyfriend several times over three decades. WINK News found him still living in Fort Myers, but he did not want to speak to us on camera. In 1976, he told investigators that phillips disappeared after he took her to a downtown bank. But other witnesses then said the couple was spotted driving north on US 41. The family admits suspicions about margie's former boyfriend, but her daughter simply wants to know what happened-- to finally get some closure.

    "I don't hate him, I forgive him. But he needs to come forward," said Wanda Phillips.

    Wednesday would have been Margie Phillips' 62nd birthday. Her sisters say the best present would be to get a new lead in the case. If you know anything, you're urged to call CrimeStoppers at 800-780-TIPS. Your calls can remain anonymous.
