Unexplained Disappearance with Bizarre Clues #4 : Diane Augat

On April 10, 1988, 40-year old Diane Augat left her residence in Odessa, Florida and mysteriously disappeared. she was last spotted walking along US 19 on the 11th. Her disappearance afterwards took several bizarre turn.
  • On the 13th, Diane’s mother received a message on her answering machine from a woman who sounded just like her daughter. She was saying “Help, help, let me out” and “Hey, gimme that” as the sounds of someone trying to grab the phone away could be heard in the background. The caller ID read “Starlight”, but there was no answer when Diane’s mother called the number back.

  • Things got really morbid on April 15 when the severed tip of Diane’s right middle finger was found in the area where she was last seen. 
  • Two weeks later, a bag containing her neatly folded clothing was discovered in a convenience store’s freezer. 
  • Two-and-a-half years after Diane went missing, a local paper published a story about her disappearance. The very next day, Diane’s brother’s girlfriend happened to discover a plastic bag in another convenience store. It had the name “Diane” written on it and contained items which may have belonged to her (makeup, perfume, and other toiletries).

The manager of the hotel that she stayed at before his disappearance was arrested for murder in 2001, but it is unknown if  he had any connection to Augat. In spite of these bizarre clues, no other trace of Diane Augat has ever been found
