11 years later, family remembers Angie Yarnell

Imagine losing your only daughter and not knowing what really happened to her. That’s the case for Marianne Asher-Chapman.

October 2003 was the last time she saw her daughter, Michelle “Angie” Yarnell.

“She’s still missing. It was decided that her husband killed her, he disposed of her body and it’s still hidden. I’ve appealed to him to please let me find her, but he won’t”, said Asher-Chapman.

In 2009, Michael Yarnell plead guilty toinvoluntary manslaughter in connection to Yarnell’s death.

“He received a plea bargain of 7 years, but he served four years, he’s out now and he’s been out for a year and a half and I see him around town”, said Asher-Chapman.

So, in 2007, Marianne, along with another mother of missing daughter Jasmine, Peggy Florence, created Missouri Missing.

“Missouri Missing does everything it can to keep awareness for missing people and we know how it is for the families of the missing and so awareness is everything, education, that’s how we do our part to help find people through education and awareness”, said Asher-Chapman.

To spread awareness of her still missing daughter, Marianne is asking the community to tie green ribbons in front of their homes.

“Angie was 28 years old, she didn’t have children but she had two dogs, which were like her children, Penny and Blossom, she was just a really sweet person. She loved nature and I think maybe that’s why she loved green so much, that was her favorite color, she was an artist, a poet, she loved animals and I really miss her”, said her mother.

On Saturday, the family plans on holding a memorial for Angie out her at their property at 809 S. Summit Drive in Holts Summit. They welcome the whole community to come out and help tie a green ribbon on the tree in front of their house, to honor their beloved daughter.
