Patricia Adkins Missing, 29-year-old Woman missing from Ohio.
Patricia “Patti” Adkins is 29-year-old, and was reported missing from Ohio. Reports says Patti had been planning to go on a trip with her boyfriend. He also worked at the Honda plant.
They were on different lines and Patti would stop by his line and speak to him,” Lt. Stiers said. “But at the time, he was married to someone else. [He] allegedly told Patti he was going to leave his wife for her.”
Patti and her boyfriend, who police declined to name to Dateline, planned to vacation in Canada during shutdown week. They were going to leave together in the boyfriend’s truck after work on Friday, June 29, 2001.
Patti had arranged for her sister Marcia Pitts to watch her seven-year-old daughter while she was in Canada, according to Lt. Stiers, and had told Marcia she would pick her daughter up on Sunday, July 8. Patti didn’t have a cell phone, so nobody expected to hear from her until then.
But they did expect her to pick up her daughter. July 8 came, and Patti didn’t arrive.
Worried, her sister Marcia called Patti’s boyfriend, Lt. Stiers says, since she knew they were supposed to be together.
“Marcia called him, and he played it off like he didn’t even know who Patti was,” Lt. Stiers said, adding that the man told Marcia he and Patti weren’t in a relationship and had never had plans to go on vacation.
Lieutenant Stiers said some of those items included a phone and a t-shirt that Patti’s sister Marcia later confirmed Patti had gifted to the man.
“We also have found a letter that was written by Patti to him about the relationship and how much she wanted to be with him,” he added.
The boyfriend’s truck was also searched, Lt. Stiers said, and none of Patti’s DNA was found in the bed of the truck, where she had told close friends she was going to ride.
“We follow up on every lead and every person that’s mentioned to us as much as we can,” he said. “But he is the primary suspect.”
Patricia “Patti” Adkins would be 46 years old today.
