Fifteen years later, Marysville woman’s disappearance still a mystery

MARYSVILLE, OH (WCMH)–A well-known and highly-publicized Central Ohio investigation is now 15 years old.

On June 29, 2001, investigators said Patricia “Patti” Adkins clocked out from her job at the Honda of America plant, in Marysville.

She was never heard from again.

“I mean it’s hard, but I try to avoid it,” said Marcia Pitts, Adkins’ sister, discussing the significance of this particular date in her life.

According to Pitts, the two sisters spoke often.

Shortly before Adkins’ disappearance, Pitts said her sister told her that she was going to Canada with her boyfriend, for the holiday weekend.

“I was never comfortable with the fact that she said that I wouldn’t be able to get in touch with her,” Pitts recalled.

Several days later, Adkins never picked up her daughter, who Pitts said she was watching.

Her home was also vacant.

To date, Adkins’ body has not been discovered, but investigators have declared her dead.

“I don’t have hope that my sister’s alive,” said Pitts. “I knew when she didn’t return that she was not alive, but I have hope that justice will happen, that someone will be held accountable for her death.”

Anyone with information is urged to call the Union County Sheriff’s Office at (937) 645-4110.
