"When a person disappears without a trace, often the most critical information is hidden in their actions and words in the days before they vanished," says the narrator of ID Channel's TV series 'Disappeared'.

In the case of Stacey Nicole English, the 36-year-old Buckhead woman who went missing on Dec. 26, 2011, her last actions and words may hold the key to her disappearance.

According to her family, English was acting "out of character" and talking about the end of the world in the days leading up to her disappearance. She is on medication and she was previously hospitalized following a suicide attempt, according to the police report.

Channel 2 Action News reporter Erin Coleman spoke by phone with the last person to see English alive.

Atlanta police named Robert Kirk a 'person of interest' in the case. He was visiting English over the holidays when the two got into an argument on Dec. 26. English reportedly threw Kirk out of her apartment that day.

“(I) heard about the reports and it sent a tingle through me,” Kirk told Coleman, according to WSBTV.com.

Kirk said he is praying for English’s safety and that the situation is “crazy.”

Kirk also spoke with a reporter from The Atlanta Journal-Constitution in a phone interview today. "I don't know what's going on. All I know is, I've been speaking with [authorities] for a week," he said.

Kirk declined to say anything more, referring a reporter's questions to his attorney Scott Rosenblum.

English worked at Sun Trust Bank and lived in a condo off Lenox Road in Buckhead for 4 years. She left behind her cellphone, iPad and keys, according to Channel 2 Action News.

English's car, a White Volvo, was found abandoned with the engine running in a community center parking lot in southwest Atlanta on Dec. 27. But police didn't put the pieces of the puzzle together until Thursday.

Local police and the FBI have stepped up their efforts to find English now that she's headline news in Atlanta. K9 units are searching the area around the Aaron's Amphitheater at Lakewood where her car was found.

English's mother, Cindy Jamison, told the AJC Friday's search should have taken place earlier.

"It's very troubling it took this long," Jamison said.

    Thank you sandra...Thank you for posting. Thank you for keeping Stacey Nicole's name in the public's mind and hearts. I will withhold my comments regarding: Kirk. I am too close to the situation to express my self amiably at this moment

    @Yall
    English is the female who threw Kirk out

    @GG
    So was she mentally unstable tho before I target Kirk as the assailant

    The police are some lazy fcks. I swear. They deport American children to Colombia without notifying anyone or running fingerprints; and then they come upon a car running all by itself and think nothing of it.

    Black people need to stop clowning foreal and start organizing, and protecting themselves.

  • ChocD aka C.D.

    Hopefully people like Nancy Grace and other news outlets get the word out about this young lady instead of keep giving that cunt Casey Anthony shine. This is a real case that needs swift attention

    Choco, that information I don't know enough about to speak on. I want to remain respectful and focus soley on the efforts of Stacey getting home and God's power to make it happen. However, if she did go off on her own, then there is hope she will return on her own. I am prayerful.

  • pointhimout

    AND Y DID the media find it necessary to report that she allegedly tried to commit suicide a couple years ago, and spoke of the end of the world to a few friends right before all this happened? I hope they put forth a grand effort to search for her.

    You have to be female too. They only look for niggas if they think you COMMITTED the crime, not if you could be the victim of a crime.

    Sensationalism, pure and simple. Otherwise, how will they get anyone to pay attention to a missing black woman? :coffee:

    @ Man, I just don’t care™: her mental status is important because she may not want to be found.

    "her mental status is important because she may not want to be found."
    ________________________________________________________________________________

    Key word MAY. Since one doesn't know, they should err on the side of caution and assume that they DO want to be found and write the article accordingly.

    But I know that I'm preaching to the choir and chit.

    I am so sad. MAN. I am sorry @Genia. This will hopefully have a good outcome.

  • aMochaBabe

    This story is so disheartening.

    Stacey has been in my prayers since I read about this online yesterday and will remain until she is found...hopefully safe & unharmed.

    The police did indeed seem to be dragging their feet with regards to this investigation. Not sure why since they ARE the main ones professing that the FIRST FEW days of a missing person's case are the most important.

    They seemed apathetic, callous and indifferent when asked early on what they were doing to find this young lady....one sgt. replying, "we're passing out fliers".

    Nothing else. No sense of urgency.

    Until, Carlos Campos (police spokesperson or PR person) stepped in.... which was just in time because his statements suggest that they actually give a d*mn about this case as opposed to their previous actions and statements.

    If police would just.... POLICE. INVESTIGATE. Just Give a D*mn....about ALL cases and stop PICKING & CHOOSING which case is WORTHY of their time
    things would be soooo different.

    She's been gone a long time to not have contacted anyone... I wonder how her friend got here to Atlanta, plane or car because Lakewood is close to the airport for a quick getaway. The Vanderbilt has a manned security gate and cameras, when did the car leave? There are traffic cams and survelience cams up and down Lenox Road... So sad, she was a pretty girl reminds of the girl from girlfriends and successful- looks like the she got bit by the crazy bug, poor thing.
