Sarah Estes, 26, disappeared from Winchester, Ky on January 1, 1987. Sarah’s mother had stated that Sarah had gone on the run from the FBI with her husband, Mitchell Scott Estes who was facing a murder charge in Lexington, Ky. In late 1987 or early 1988, Sarah and Mitchell were seen in Brooklyn, NY by some of Sarah’s family members. They apparently boarded a Greyhound bus, but their destination was unknown.
There was rumors that Sarah had been murdered by her husband, her body dismembered and burned in Florida, but there hasn’t been any evidence to substantiate the claims. Mitchell is still at large as well. Please call the Winchester PD with any information at 859-745-7403.
