    Details of Disappearance

    Arnold was last seen in Madison, Wisconsin sometime during 1997; the exact date of her disappearance is unknown. She was a prostitute at the time of her disappearance and was also involved with drugs. She was reportedly last known to be in the company of an African-American male known only as Gypsy, with dreadlocked hair and a Jamaican accent.

    Arnold's family has not heard from her since 1999, which they say is uncharacteristic of her; she usually got in touch with them every month or so. She was a regular in downtown Madison. After her disappearance, there were rumors that she was killed while running drugs en route to Chicago, Illinois. The circumstances surrounding her disappearance are unclear.
