Photo of Phoenix Coldon taken the same year of her disappearance

Short description: Missing since 12/18/11 in unincorporated St. Louis, Missouri North County (Spanish Lake area). Her car was found running near the intersection of 9th Street & St. Clair Avenue in East St. Louis, Illinois, keys in the ignition, motor running. She has not been seen or heard from since.

Full story: Phoenix Coldon, then 23, a college student who attended the University of Missouri when she went missing on December 18, 2011 in St. Louis. She was last seen in her vehicle, pulling out of the driveway at her family home around noon. A few hours later, around 3p.m. her 1998 four-door Chevrolet Blazer was found abandoned at the intersection of 9th Street and St. Clair Avenue in East St. Louis, Illinois (Spanish Lake Area) with the engine still running, it was impounded and it took authorities two weeks to connect the car to the young woman’s disappearance. 

Phoenix’s parents, Goldia and Lawrence Coldon are devastated and have for the past eleven months they have been desperately seeking any information about their daughter whereabouts. They said the last time they saw their daughter, she was talking on her cell phone, then she backed out of the driveway and drove away, but none of Phoenix’s friends claim they were on the phone with her at that time and the caller on the other end remains unknown.

Phoenix’s case is very similar to the disappearance of Stacey English, 36, who went missing in Atlanta. on December 26, 2011, one week after Phoenix disappeared. Both woman’s vehicles were found abandoned and running less than 20 miles from their home. One of the last people to see Stacey was Robert Kirk, a friend from St. Louis, and although the two were not together, Robert was currently living with Stacey at her condo at the time she went missing, the two had gotten into  a verbal altercation and Stacey kicked him out. He has returned to St. Louis and Police say he has been cooperative and they have not named him or anyone else a suspect in Stacey’s disappearance.
