Details of Disappearance
Belcher was last seen in Green Cove Springs, Florida on December 22, 2000. She and her husband, Jesse A. Owens (nicknamed “Andy”) resided with his mother on Highland Avenue. The couple argued during the early morning hours and the police were summoned to the house to end the dispute. Owens told authorities that he saw Belcher walk down Highland Avenue at approximately 2:30 AM. The temperatures were at the freezing mark at the time.
One of Belcher’s friends told investigators that he gave her a ride to an undisclosed residence several blocks away from Vermont Street shortly after 2:30 AM. He said that he waited several minutes for Belcher to return to his car before departing from the house. Another friend reported seeing her walking along Vermont Street towards Florida Route 16 around daybreak. Belcher has never been heard from again.
Owens reported Belcher as a missing person two days after her initial disappearance. He stated that his wife had a history of leaving their home for several days after arguments. Authorities said that Owens and Belcher had a stormy relationship. He was arrested and charged with beating her shortly before their March 2000 wedding. Officials stated that Owens cooperated with the investigation into Belcher’s disappearance and was not considered a suspect.
