A Florida mother-of-four finished her shift as a cashier at a Walmart, clocked out and left the store. She then vanished and has never been seen since.

According to Collier County Sheriff’s Detective Scott Peterson, around 8:30 a.m. on May 17, 2010, Marie Chantal Delly was dropped off by her husband, Mathnauld Dareus, at her job at Walmart in Naples.

At approximately 4:30 p.m., Delly was done for the day, but where she went or what happened to her remains a mystery. “Upon speaking to the employees at Walmart, I had learned that Marie had asked for the next day off to take her child to a doctor, but she never made that doctor’s appointment,” Detective Peterson said.

On May 19, Walmart contacted Delly’s husband to find out why she hadn’t shown up for her scheduled shift. Dareus, Peterson said, then reported Marie as a missing person to the sheriff’s office.

Peterson said that during the investigation into Delly’s disappearance, he learned Delly had a history of taking off “for a couple days” whenever she and her husband experienced “marital difficulties.” She would not tell Dareus where she was going.

Delly, however, would always inform her family and children of her whereabouts — which she failed to do this time, the detective noted.

Investigators were able to recover security footage from Walmart that showed a silver vehicle arriving at the store around the time Delly was leaving work, and it was later seen again at a toll booth on an area road.

According to Peterson, police have not been able to eliminate Delly’s husband as a person of interest in the case because of “inconsistencies with his statement and what our investigation revealed.”

Since Delly vanished, she has not accessed her bank or social media accounts and she’s not been in contact with family or friends. Detectives also determined the Haitian immigrant has not left the country.

Lavanda Warren told the Naples Daily News that Dareus relocated to Orlando a short time after Marie went missing.

According to the publication, Dareus was convicted in 2015 of first-degree murder with a firearm and aggravated assault with a firearm in connection with the shooting death of Hyatt Regency employee Cedilien Forestal, 49, in the hotel’s parking garage in Orlando.

Anyone with information about the whereabouts of Marie Chantal Delly or the case is urged to contact the Collier County Sheriff’s Office at (239) 252-9300. Or, if you wish to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at (800) 780-TIPS (8477).
