Episode 59 Debra Daniel and Candice Caffas

68 year-old Meadville Pennsylvania resident Debra Daniel was last seen on August 15, 2022.
Debra, who was Bipolar, lived in her own apartment at the Holland Towers apartment complex on Market Street. Debra, who didn't drive, frequently visited her mom who had recently been admitted to a nursing home. Despite the nursing home being miles from Debra's apartment, she always found a way to visit her mom whether it meant walking, or hitching a ride. The last time she was seen on August 15, 2022, she was at the nursing home. When her friends and family realized she was missing and came to do a welfare check on Debra, they found her apartment clean and everything in order. The bag that Debra had been seen with at the nursing home the day she vanished was there indicating that she made it home to her apartment after the visit. But there was no sign of Debra, and she hasn't been seen since.

In Meadville, a town of 12,000 residents, people going missing isn't common, but Debra's case is not an isolated one. It turns out that on July 15, or 16, 2022, a month before Debra vanished, 34 year old Candice Caffas left her Crawford County home on the 9100 block of Mount Pleasant Road in Union Township, south of Meadville, and she hasn't been seen since. Like Debra, Candice suffered from mental illness; a condition called Prader-Willi syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that results in a number of physical, mental and behavioral problems.

It's troubling that 2 vulnerable women vanished a month apart in a small town. But are their cases connected? There have also been unconfirmed rumors that a third woman went missing shortly before Candice vanished, but details are sketchy. If there are indeed 3 missing women from that area over a very short time, it's even more troubling.

Debra's and Candice's families are desperate to find out what happened to them.
In this episode, Debra's niece Anne Puckett discusses her aunt's case, as well as Candice's.
