On the afternoon of July 1, 2007 Alicia Minton dropped her children off with a friend and then ran a few errands, including a stop at Enterprise Rent-A-Car. She drove to Beaver Lake in Rogers, AK where she swam and rode a boat out into the lake. She hasn’t been seen or heard from since.
Shortly after her disappearance, her silver BMW 30i was found abandoned at the intersection of Second and Locust Streets in Rogers. Two weeks after her disappearance on July 15, 2007, her purse was found floating in Beaver Lake.
Rogers Police (RPD) don’t believe she left on her own accord. She didn’t take any belongings which indicates she didn’t plan on leaving.
The family of the missing mother say she wouldn’t have left her four children nor would she have missed her family’s birthdays and the holidays.
There’s been no phone call, although Alicia’s sister, Michelle Hurt, has hoped for one.
“Some days you want to pick up the phone and tell her about your day,” said Hurt of Omak, WA. “So many times I’ve thought she’d call.”
The grief never leaves Minton’s mother, Brenda Mathis, of Bentonville.
“It’s not like when somebody dies in your family and you can have a funeral,” Mathis said. “You can have some closure, with this you can have none. The least little thing can spark a memory, and it’s like it happened yesterday.”
Authorities believe they have identified the boat she took out onto the water and they also believe foul-play is suspected. Alicia’s ex-boyfriend, Randal Todd Greenway, was immediately considered a person-of-interest. He has a long rap sheet that dates back to 1993 and according to police the two had a rocky relationship. Alicia was supposed to visit Greenway the day she went missing.
In April, 2010, Greenway was arrested and plead guilty to drug charges. He was sentenced to twenty years and although police believe Greenway is responsible for Alicia’s disappearance, they don’t have a body or the evidence to prove it and her case remains unsolved.
Alicia was last seen wearing a red bikini covered with a red tank top, dark-colored shorts and pink flip-flops.
