As CrimeOnline previously reported, Emily worked a shift at the Chili’s restaurant in Ennis on January 5, then called her mother, Shirley Wade, and told her she would be stopping by a co-worker’s home for movie and a pizza. Shirley was babysitting Emily’s 7-year-old daughter on the day in question.

Emily lived with her daughter and Shirley in an apartment in Ennis they had recently moved to, after relocating from Cynthiana, Kentucky.

When Emily failed to return home, Shirley contacted authorities and said it wasn’t like doting mother to simply leave without contacting her. Emily’s cellphone and bank account have not been used since her disappearance.

Authorities interviewed family members and co-workers but no one has been yet been named a suspect in Emily’s death or disappearance.

The story continues to develop. Check back with CrimeOnline as additional details become available.
