Details of Disappearance

Dana Jane Bruce was last seen by family or friends on October 04, 2008.

Bruce was last seen at her children's babysitter's home in Sedalia, Missouri on October 4, 2008. 

She had left the children there earlier that day so she could go out for the evening. She returned at midnight and gave the babysitter more money, and asked her to watch the children for the rest of the night.

Bruce was seen at the Malones Bar on Main Street with a young man driving a late model red Ford F-150 truck earlier on the night of her disappearance. She left with the 
man at 11:30 p.m. She has never been heard from again.

Police have identified the man Bruce was with on the night she vanished. He traveled to Atlanta, Georgia after her disappearance and police questioned him about Bruce after he was arrested there on unrelated charges of marijuana possession and driving on a suspended license. 

Authorities haven't named him publicly, but they are calling him a person of interest in her case. He told his questioners that he and Bruce parted ways after they left the bar and he never saw her after that.

She left all her belongings behind, including her hairbrush and toothbrush, and she doesn't have credit cards, debit cards, a checking account, a cellular phone or a car. 

Foul play is suspected in her disappearance.
