It was Sunday, March 14th, 2004, when the parents of 39 year old Mary Denise Lands’ received a call from her boyfriend, Christopher Pratt, that he had not seen or heard from her since around 10PM on Friday, March 12th. Pratt claims he and Mary got into an argument and she took off with her purse, but left her cell phone and car keys to her new Dodge Durango at home. Mary’s brother Mike took the initiative to call the Marshall Police Department, since police hadn’t been called yet.
Video surveillance from a party supplies store in Marshall, MI, shows Mary shopping around 6:30PM. She was then seen meeting up with boyfriend Christopher Pratt at a nearby tanning salon. Witnesses reported hearing the couple argue. Later that evening, a friend of Mary’s came to her apartment to pick her up and hang out as planned. But Christopher answered the door and said that Mary wasn’t available. No one has seen or heard from Mary Denise Lands since. Mary is 5’6” tall, 160 lbs, with brown hair and brown eyes. There are people out there who know what happened. People who need to finally come forward and end the nightmare of not knowing where Mary is for her loved ones. If you have any information at all, please contact Marshall Police Department at (269)-781-2596 or Mary’s family’s private investigator Jim Carlin at (269)-274-6334 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
