Lindsey Schobelock’s Disappearance
On February 21, 2022, Lindsey Schobelock had a text conversation with her father. She reportedly seemed unusual and the messages didn’t really sound like her.
On the morning of February 23, 2022, Schobelock dropped off her youngest son with her stepmother and her older son at school before going to work at The Iron Pen, where she was scheduled to work until 6:30 pm.
Between 4:00 – 4:30 pm, Schobelock abruptly left work following a phone call or a text without telling her coworkers goodbye. Shortly after, she was captured by security cameras withdrawing some cash at an ATM.
Lindsey Schobelock never returned to pick up her two boys that night, and has never been heard from again.
On February 24, 2022, her vehicle, a red Honda HRV sports car, was found abandoned at a rural construction site on Windy Ridge Road in Huntington Township, Ohio, about thirty minutes away from her home.
On the same day, Schobelock’s family filed a missing person report with the Ross County Sheriff’s Office upon being notified of her abandoned car.
Authorities found Lindsey’s car keys in an area near her vehicle. Schobelock left behind all her personal belongings at home, including her drivers license, purse, cell phone, tablet, and home computer.
On February 24, 2022, authorities conducted an extensive search of an area encompassing eight acres of land where her car was found, with the help of K9 dogs, drones, and volunteers, but no signs of Lindsey Schobelock was found.
In the days leading to up to her disappearance, Schobelock was reportedly withdrawn and distant from friends. In January 2022, she checked herself into a hospital for a couple of days over some mental health issues, according to her family.
