In Mount Pleasant, Iowa 11 years ago a 22-year old woman by the name of Elizabeth Nicole Forshee-Syperda vanished into thin air and has never been found. Her roommate saw her when the roomie was leaving to go to work at 10:30 pm. When the roommate returned at 4:30 am she was gone. Elizabeth’s personal belongings were in her home, her door was locked from the outside, and her last check from her employer was never picked up. Flash forward to May 22, 2011. Jackie Douthart, 24, leaves her sister’s house in Mount Pleasant and hasn’t been seen since.
Friends and family say that it’s totally out of character for this mother of 1 to go more than 6 hours without letting someone know where she is. Jackie left her sister’s home with friends and one of them, identified as Ben Biggs, allegedly dropped off Douthart by Remington Seeds near the ball diamonds after midnight. Biggs allegedly has record as long as my arm according to people close to the case. However, now the police are protecting which Ben Biggs it is so his records can’t be researched. That’s the last positive sighting there has been in this case. The family says that they had a tip that she was seen after that, at around 1:57 am, at Z’s Quick Break trying to buy alcohol but that hasn’t been proven. As always, police are remaining silent.
When Jackie Leigh Douthart was last seen she was wearing a zebra stripped shirt, black vest, blue jeans, and flip-flops. She is 5 foot 4 inches tall and around 120 pounds. She has shoulder-length brown hair with purple highlights and green eyes. Jackie has a pierced belly button, a tattoo of “Zoey” on her left ankle, and a tattoo of a butterfly on her right shoulder blade. She is also missing all of her bottom teeth.
