Details of Disappearance Mullis visited her parents in Royerton, Indiana on September 19, 2013. She took her two-week-old daughter and went to visit her parents for dinner. They had a pleasant visit and she showed them some piggy banks she'd bought and planned to resell at a profit; she enjoyed refinishing antiques and woodworking. Mullis's father noted she seemed slightly worried, but nothing appeared out of the ordinary. On September 22, Mullis attended a family reunion, although her parents did not. This is the last time anyone in her family saw her.
At the time of her disappearance, Mullis was separated from her husband and seeing a married man, Daniel York Sr., a mechanic whom she met in 2012 when she needed her car serviced. He lent her a vehicle to drive and gave her a rental house to live in. The baby girl Mullis gave birth to a few weeks prior to her disappearance was supposedly York's, although her paternity had not been verified. It's unclear whether his wife was aware of their affair at the time.
A few days after the family reunion, Mullis's father and brother were unable to reach her on the phone. Her parents drove to her home and found it locked and deserted. They left a note on the door, asking Mullis to contact them. She didn't, but a few days later when her parents came back to the house to check on her, the note they'd left before was gone. They left a second note in its place and called York to ask if he knew where she was.
According to York, Mullis told him she'd decided to move to Virginia with $15,000 he'd given her. She had left her sons with her husband and her baby daughter with York and his wife. When Mullis's parents found out about this, they immediately reported their daughter missing. By then, two weeks had passed since anyone had seen her.
Mullis's divorce was granted five months after her disappearance and her husband got custody of their two sons. York moved to Florida shortly after Mullis went missing, and he died there in 2015. His wife legally adopted Mullis's daughter.
It's worth noting that prior to his death, York was considered a person of interest in the death of 22-year-old Heather Musick, whose body was found in a burned-out hotel room in Daleville, Indiana in 2010. York had rented the hotel room, and after his initial police interview he hired a lawyer and refused to speak with investigators further. He was never charged in her case and her murder remains unsolved, as does Mullis's disappearance.
