Missing Dent Co woman focus of UNSOLVED MYSTERIES episode

The disappearance of a Dent County woman will be the focus of an episode of UNSOLVED MYSTERIES on Netflix.

The Phelps County Focus reports the episode, titled “Missing Witness”, will focus on Lena Chapin.  She was last seen at an apartment outside Steelville on Valentine’s Day 2006. 

The Focus reports Chapin wasn’t reported missing for six years after her disappearance.  And only after deputies attempted to serve her with a subpoena to testify against her mother in court. 

Court records state Chapin had come forward to police shortly before her disappearance, telling them she’d helped her mother dispose of her murdered stepfather’s body four years prior. 

Chapin’s episode will air on UNSOLVED MYSTERIES on Wednesday, July 1.
