    Prior to her disappearance, Adkins had stated that she was going to go on a vacation to Canada for a week with a male coworker. When contacted by police after Adkins vanished, the coworker stated that he had not left town and had not been planning to do so. Adkins made an appointment with a hairdresser for after her supposed vacation. She never kept it. She had worked for Honda for nearly ten years and had become a team leader at the assembly line, and she was anticipating a promotion when she disappeared.

    Adkins was declared legally dead after her disappearance. There's been no activity on her financial accounts since she went missing. Her family believes she was murdered, but due to the lack of evidence in her case it is being investigated as a missing person case rather than a crime.
