Details of Disappearance
MacCrossen lived in Newberry, Florida at the time of her disappearance. She was last heard from on August 17, 2007, when she called her mother in Michigan and said she was at a Greyhound bus stop in Gainesville, Florida. MacCrossen never contacted her family again. They reported her missing in December of that year.

There's been no activity on her credit cards or Social Security number since her disappearance. She had a violent relationship with her boyfriend, Andrelo Lasuard Witcher, and he was allegedly very controlling of her. A photo of Witcher is posted with this case summary. He has an extensive criminal record, including domestic violence and drug offenses.

Shortly before her disappearance, MacCrossen fled to Michigan and arrived at a relative's home with two black eyes. After spending a month in Michigan, she returned to Florida to deal with a misdemeanor traffic ticket. She called her family from the Gainesville bus station to tell them she'd arrived safely, and this was the last time they heard from her. She failed to appear in court to answer to the traffic charge and a warrant was issued for her arrest.

MacCrossen told her family she was afraid of Witcher, but she never sought a restraining order against him. She once accused him of sexual battery, but the charges were dropped because MacCrossen wouldn't cooperate with the investigation.

There were multiple documented instances of domestic violence between them; at one point, Witcher threatened MacCrossen with a gun, beat her and held her captive in her home for two days before she escaped. Witcher is a registered sex offender and has a criminal record with domestic violence, weapons and drug charges.

Investigators interviewed him about MacCrossen and he said he had no idea where she was. In April 2016, five and a half years after her disappearance, Witcher was charged with manslaughter in her case.

There was no physical evidence; the case against Witcher was solely on circumstantial evidence and witness testimony of Witcher's threats against MacCrossen. He was convicted in December 2018 and sentenced to thirty years in prison; he must serve at least fifteen years before he can be considered for parole.

Prior to her involvement with Witcher, MacCrossen maintained regular contact with her family in Michigan and often asked how her young son was doing; he lives in Michigan with his father. Foul play is suspected in her case due to the circumstances involved.
