Where is Madeleine?

By Skylar Carlson

Thirty-eight years ago, Madeleine vanished. Her old beat-up truck was left running on the corner of 15th and Walsh. Her truck was filled with perishables and her brother’s tux for his wedding that weekend. Madeleine was just gone. No witnesses, no leads, no surveillance to run again, nothing.

Her brother claimed she’s gone because of the fight they had. Her father thinks she’s dead and her mother couldn’t care less.

Listen hard enough though and you’ll hear Madeleine. The broken whispers carried in the wind. Her croaked out sobs in the mist. Just one dead girl warning the next.
