Mystery of young mother deepens
With her young daughter sleeping upstairs, Stefanie Francique told her stepmother good night and then disappeared. That was Nov. 5. Now, Francique's family and friends are convinced she didn't leave her Colony Lakes Estates home willingly. They say her car and wallet remain at the house, but her cell phone and keys are gone. But if there's anything to suggest suspicious circumstances, it's that she left behind 4-year-old Alyanna. Sheriff's Office officials are not calling it a suspicious case. "Until we get evidence there is a crime, it would still be listed as a missing person," spokesman Doug Tobin said. Records show Francique, 24, was arrested earlier this year on drug charges. She is married but estranged from Alyanna's father, Darryl Francique, who recently moved to Brandon. Anyone with information was asked to call the Sheriff's Office at (800) 854-2862, ext. 7462.
