When Rikkell Bock arrived at her mom’s Lenawee County, Michigan home for Sunday morning breakfast on April 21, 2021, she didn’t see her mom Dee Ann, her step-father Dale, or her kid sister. The family always had Sunday morning breakfast together, and Rikkell was immediately worried and began to text Dee Ann.

Her mom didn’t answer her text messages. Phone calls went directly to voicemail. It was unusual, according to Rikkell, because her mom was constantly texting or calling her friends and family members to check in and see how everyone was doing. She never turned her phone off.

A few hours later, Dale called Rikkell to ask if she’d seen her mom. Rikkell was too shocked to say much of anything. She had talked to her mom the night before, and Dee had declared that she was leaving Dale — this time for good. It was common for her to leave Dale for a couple of days and cool down after a fight, but she was always in touch with her kids.

That evening, 10 hours after Rikkell realized her mom was missing, she asked her brother to check the surveillance footage around their mom and Dale’s property. When the recordings failed to give them any information, they called the police to report their mom missing.

Dee’s brother, Gregg Hardy, questioned Dale about Dee’s whereabouts himself. Dale told Gregg that he and Dee Ann had been in a fight on the night of April 20 but that he’d still given her a backrub as she lay on the living room floor. Dee Ann fell asleep, Dale told Gregg, and at that point, he moved her to the couch and went to bed himself.

On the morning of April 21, Dale said he woke up at 6:30 to do his farm chores, and Dee Ann was still asleep on the couch. According to Dale, Dee Ann left her wedding ring on his desk and walked out while he was working in the fields.

There was just one problem — Dee’s car was still there, as were all of her possessions. There was no indication Dee had left at all. Dale insisted she must have run away to Mexico or Jamaica after their fight.

While the police were tied up getting warrants to search the property, Gregg was calling Dee Ann’s friends to see if maybe she’d gotten a ride to an airport. All of her friends were flabbergasted to hear that she was missing. None of them had given her a ride to the airport or heard from her after the previous night.
