  • Details of Disappearance
    Michelle was last seen at her residence in the vicinity of the 3900 block of Ozark View Road in Ivy Bend, Missouri On Oct. 25, 2003. Angie's husband Mike Yarnell returned home after work to find his wife of three years wasn't home. Mike figured Angie had gone to Holts Summit to visit her mother and that she would be back to their Ivy Bend home in a few days. After a week went by, he drove to his mother-in-law's home to find her. Angie had not been to her mother's home, so a police report was filed.

    All of Angie's personal belongings were left behind.

    Michael Shane Yarnell pled guilty to involuntary manslaughter in 2009 and was sentenced to 7 years. He claimed he pushed Angie off the 10 foot deck at their home where she died instantly. He then disposed of her body on a small island near their home. Her body has not been recovered. Mike Yarnell was release from prison in July 2013.
