    Perris received a call on her cellular phone at approximately 3:00 p.m. on September 30, 2000. She was at her family's residence near Flamingo Boulevard and Sunrise Boulevard in Plantation, Florida at the time. Perris told her parents that she was going to Coral Springs, Florida for a short time and would return home by 6:00 p.m. She planned to attend a Florida Marlins' baseball game with her family that evening.

    All of her personal belongings were left behind at her family's residence, except her cellular phone which she took with her. Perris's 1994 white two-door Mazda MX-6 with a sunroof, tinted windows and dents behind the driver's side door and rear wheel well was discovered abandoned in a Tamarac, Florida shopping center parking lot on October 6, 2000. There was no sign of Perris or any indication of foul play at the scene. Perris' cellular phone and purse were missing from the vehicle.
