Alissa Turney of Phoenix, Arizona, disappeared in 2001 at the age of 17. Her younger sister, Sarah, was 12 at the time.
On a quest to find the truth about her missing sister, Sarah eventually turned to TikTok, of all places, to ultimately solve Alissa’s murder.
Sarah began sharing her sister’s story on TikTok in the hopes of reaching a younger audience and simply revealing the facts. As her videos collected more views and more interest, she gained over 1 million followers.
“In one video, she recalls the day her sister vanished. It was her last day of junior year at Paradise Valley High School in Phoenix. Sarah, who was 12 at the time, says she found her sister’s usually meticulous bedroom in total disarray. Alissa’s Nokia cell phone was left on the dresser, along with a note saying she’d gone to California to try and make it on her own. Detectives initially classified Alissa as a runaway.”
As a result of Sarah’s dogged determination, and her own speculation about her father’s role in Alissa’s disappearance, her father is now facing murder charges.
Meanwhile, another young woman named Ellie Green was on her own fact-finding mission in Kansas City.
Ellie’s mother, Angela Green, went missing in July 2019 — yet no one reported her missing until February of 2020.
Ellie has been determined to breathe new life into her mother’s cold case, but she hit one dead end after another.
In the video below, see how Alissa and Ellie are now teaming up … connected by grief, determination, and belief in the power of social media.
