The Mesa authorities have decided to reopen to a cold case of Mikelle Biggs, the girl who vanished without a trail from her house in 1999. The decision was taken after an anonymous person brought one dollar with a message written in the child’s handwriting.
Dollar Bill Presumed Author Vanished While Waiting for the Ice-Cream Truck
In 1999, Mikelle Biggs was outside her Arizona house with her sister, anxiously waiting for the ice-cream truck to swing by. According to the official police report, her sister told her that she wanted to go inside and dress warmly as the weather turned cold. Biggs remained outside.
After exiting the house, Biggs’ sister could no longer find the girl. The authorities were called in later that day, but the only clue they could find at the crime scene was Biggs’ bike turned upside down.
Almost two decades have passed since Mikelle Biggs has disappeared with the authorities unable to discover what happened to the little girl. Several years ago, the case was declared shut and put on ice.
However, recently, the Mesa authorities have decided to reexamine the clue in Biggs’ case after an unexpected clue turned up in another state, approximately 1,200 miles from where the girl disappeared.
According to Neesha, Wisconsin Sheriff Kevin Wilkinson, the Office was contacted by an anonymous individual who claimed that he came across a one dollar bill with a message written on it. The individual left the dollar bill with the sheriff’s deputies who, in turn, took it to the lab.
Wilkinson said on the top part of the note the message, probably written by a child’s hand, read that the author’s name is Mikelle Biggs from Mesa, Arizona and that she’s alive.
Although promising, Wilkinson declared that we shouldn’t get out hopes up since the case has a rather extensive history of false leads.
