Lancaster was last seen in Wheelersburg, Ohio on April 3, 2013. She was supposed to run errands and then return to her parents' house that night, but she never arrived there. She has never been heard from again. Two days after her disappearance, her car was found abandoned at a Rally's fast food restaurant in Portsmouth, Ohio, with her wallet on the passenger seat.

Prior to her disappearance, Lancaster had become addicted to drugs, and sometimes supported her habit with prostitution. She left behind a seven-year-old son who was in the care of his grandmother; Lancaster's family stated that in spite of her addiction problem, she adored her son and was in daily contact with her relatives prior to her disappearance.

The Lancasters believe Mearan had something to do with Megan Lancaster’s disappearance. She was 25 when she was last seen, and her sister-in-law, Kadie Lancaster, found names and phone numbers kept by her missing sister in color-coded notebooks. The entries included notations such as "dance for" and "men who give money," and included Mearan's name and number.

Kadie Lancaster says the family has “waited so many years” for this day.
“I feel that justice is coming,” she said. “And this might be, possibly, more than likely the end of our journey. We will know where Megan is. Whether it’s today, tomorrow, two months, three months from now. (Mearan) is gonna speak.”

Police and the FBI are now reportedly searching for similarities between Lancaster’s disappearance and the cases of several other women who have also gone missing over the past two years.

Timberly Claytor, 38, and Tameka Lynch, 30, were both found dead after going missing from Ross County while Tiffany Sayre, 26, Wanda Lemons, 37, and Charlotte Trego, 29, are all still missing from that same area. Two other women, Holly Logan, 29, and Jayme Bowen, 23, are missing from nearby Franklin County. Jayme Bowen was featured in Dateline’s ‘Missing in America’ series in December.

:thankyou: @kdg411

There was a time when I followed the cases of these missing women very closely, but haven't since the "great website crash" of 2020 that we suffered here.

I hope law enforcement is digging deep into the information that Megan's family has found!

This might be the documentary that I watched:

Sister-in-Law of Missing Woman, Who Worked Relentlessly To Solve Her Suspicious Disappearance, is Found Dead at 33​

An Ohio woman who had spent the last years of her life dedicated to the search for her missing sister-in-law was found dead this weekend at age 33.

According to Cincinatti.com , the Scioto County Coroner’s Office confirmed that Kadie Lancaster was discovered dead on Saturday. Authorities have not yet released any details about the circumstances of Lancaster’s death, which appears to have been sudden.

Lancaster was a vocal advocate for her missing sister-in-law Megan Lancaster, who disappeared from Portsmouth in 2013. According to the report, Portsmouth police are also handling Lancaster’s death investigation, though she lived in South Webster in Scioto County. Portsmouth is a small town by a river, about 100 miles east of Cincinnati, and less than 20 miles from South Webster.

Megan Lancaster vanished in April 2013, when her car was found parked at a Portsmouth fast food restaurant with her wallet left behind on the front seat of the vehicle. Searching for possible clues into her sister-in-law’s disappearance, Kadie reportedly found a list of names and phone numbers in a series of Megan’s notebooks. Some of the names had notations beside them, like “dance for” or “men who give money.” Among the names in the notebook was Michael Mearan, an attorney and former Portsmouth city councilman who is facing numerous charges in connection to a sex trafficking investigation.

Megan Lancaster’s family believes that Mearan had something to do with the then-25-year-old’s disappearance.

“I pray every day that not only Michael Mearan but the rest of the people that are trafficking our vulnerable women and children get what’s coming to them,” Kadie Lancaster said in October 2020, the same month that Mearan was arrested in connection to the sex-trafficking investigation.
