Michelle was last seen leaving her family's house with two male acquaintances. She was supposed to meet up with friends at a Galveston nightclub that evening, but she never arrived. The men Michelle left with said she went with two other men on the way to the nightclub. She has never been heard from again.

Michelle and her husband were police informants in March 1985 for a drug bust. She had agreed to become an informant to get her burglary charges dropped. Authorities believe she was abducted and murdered due to her involvement.
