A 2008 locate of cards distributed by detectives profiled 52 missing persons or unsolved homicides in the community county. Eighteen years later, Judith Bello — the 8 of Hearts — turned up.
Bello was at the end seen on Dec. 13, 1993 while leaving her job with a friend. According to Seattle Advertise Intelligencer, she didn’t pick up her son from daycare, and her automobile was later abandoned at a nearby advertise office.
On Nov. 23 of this year, a woman claiming to be Bello left a message for the sheriff’s detective Kelly Willoth, confessing she was Bello, and she was alive and well and living in California, according to HeraldNet.com.
Komonews.com reports that she left voluntarily, due to domestic violence issues. It’s not clear why she did not contact any family members, or why she chose to go to California.
Although the cards have sparked other leads and a hardly any arrests, Bello is the first missing person featured in the deck to be found, reports Heraldnet.com.
