Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Ellen was last seen at her residence. Her vehicle was later located in Missoula shopping center near the Missoula International Airport.
Ellen had helped post a $100,000 bond for her boyfriend, William Gholson, who was facing prison for a sex crime and jumping bail. Ellen was also facing federal charges for filing false tax returns. Shortly after her disappearance, investigators questioned Gholson with regards to Ellen's whereabouts. They were told that she may have fled the United States and gone to various foreign countries. Gholson vanished shortly after but was arrested in November 2005 in Tennessee, and is considered a "person of interest" in Ellen's disappearance.
