she seemed to have lived an ordinary life. For the most part you really can't find much about her and her family until september 2nd 1994. When around seven p.m. Miami told Yoko that she was planning to meet up with a friend that evening before leaving the house. Um And then she, Miami never returned home. Wait so single mom. I think she has a husband. So her husband may have moved back in with her. Okay. I know she has a husband. Um There's not a lot of information about him or her. So I think they both moved back in with her parents just for some extra help. Okay. Gotcha. That makes it. But mostly her because I think it was mostly to help out with the baby because I think he was still working. So so she told her sister, yeah Yoko she was gonna go meet up with a friend on september the 2nd 1994 1994. How old was her baby at this point? So they I don't know exactly they said newborn and then they said one year old, but then we talked about this a little bit. They their first birthday is different than what ours is considered. Yeah, in some asian cultures they go by the date of conception. So they would say, so you'd be nine months old when you're born in their culture and then um You'd have a three more months before your first birthday, right? So she's under one year old. So a new babe, Because I also don't know when she was born vs when Miami disappeared, but she's under one in our standards. A couple months old, wow. So the disappearance of Miami Sarah, she did not garner a lot of attention. Um So unfortunately there's not really anything that turned up about her whereabouts The next time the story of Miami or a she came into public attention was in 2011. It's like seven years later. Yes. So nothing really turns up. Nobody ever finds out where she goes what happened to her? Nobody's discovered. She doesn't get, yeah she doesn't get in touch with her family. So nobody nobody knows, nobody knows what happened. But in 2011 they were approached by this tv show called the Super J Channel And they asked if they wanted to do a segment on, they had a segment that roughly translates to whereabouts of the truth. So I think it's kind of like our unsolved mysteries. Yeah. So they approached this family and ask if they wanted to discuss what happened to see if anybody has any information even though it's like 17 years. It is a lot like unsolved mysteries or um I think that's the one where at the end there like if you have any further information, contact these. Right, right. Yeah, I think that's pretty much what it was. So on October 13 2011, Yoko and her their father was and there were interviewed. Well, this is when the broadcast, when it aired. Um, but Yoko and the father told the audience everything they knew about what happened to Miami, which turned out to be quite a lot for nobody knowing what happened to her. Mm. So Yoko first stated that she noted my, she noted Miami seemed very uneasy the night of the disappearance on september 2nd, but they didn't really discuss what was wrong. So, Yoko just was like, oh, that's kind of weird. She seems uneasy, but maybe it's she's nervous about whatever she's going to talk to. I think they were classmates or old friends or whatever. So maybe she's just nervous to meet back up with them. Um, so, Yoko thought that was kind of strange and so on september 3rd. So, the day after Miami's disappearance, Yoko said that she had called Miami's friend that she was supposed to meet up with. But this friend told Yoko that they actually never had plans. Oh, so Yoko then decided to search Miami's room to see if there was any clues about where she actually went or what her plans were. So, in Miami's wardrobe, Yoko found a note that read quote. I was going out with a capital A but was betrayed. There is then the word Goldman G O M E N which depending on where you're looking, um, this can mean like dismissal or your pardon? In english? So this is kind of translated to her asking for forgiveness. Mm. And then she, Miami continued to write, I'm sorry. And then this was followed by a phone number. Okay. So, so it said I was going out with a capital letter A Yeah. Um, but was betrayed but I was betrayed. So basically if you find this, Yeah, I was going out with a Yeah, I was betrayed. Yeah. Goldman. So please please forgive me. I'm sorry. Here's a phone number. Right? Exactly. So Yoga decided to call the phone number to see who it lead to. So she assumed that it would contact this mystery person a because that's the only other person that was mentioned in the letter. And apparently it did. Now this person who is never named um, a stated that they were with Miami on the day she disappeared. Okay. So she did meet up with them. Yes. They then continued to say something along the lines that if Miami was found dead.
year old housewife living in Sumida in the Sumida Ward of Tokyo, Japan in 1994. Um, she had temporarily temporarily moved back in with her family after giving birth to her daughter in orderto have some help while recuperating. So she lived with her parents and her older sister, Yoko. Why? Okay. Oh, um, they quickly agreed to help her. Um, you know, kind of get back on her feet and help with the baby. She seemed to have lived an ordinary life. For the most part. You really can't find much about her and her family until September 2nd, 1994. When? Around seven. PM Miami told Yoko that she was planning to meet up with a friend that evening before leaving the house. Um, and then she Miami never returned home. Wait. So single Mom, I think she has a husband. So her husband may have moved back in with her. Okay, I know she has a husband. Um, there's not a lot of information about him or her, So I think they both moved back in with her parents just for some extra help. God, but mostly her, because I think it was mostly to help out with the baby because I think he was still working. So So she told her sister Yeah, Yoko, that she was going to go meet up with a friend on September the 2nd 1995 1994. How old was her baby at this point? So they I don't know exactly. They said newborn. And then they said one year old. But then we talked about this a little bit. They their first birthdays Different than what ours is considered. Yeah, in some Asian cultures, they go by the date of conception. So they would say so. You'd be nine months old when you're born in their culture. And then, um, you'd have a three more months before your first birthday, right? So she's under one year old for that. So a new babe? Yeah.

So it is a lot like unsolved mysteries were, um, I think that's the one where at the end, like if you have any further information contact number, right, Right? Yeah, I think that's pretty much what it waas. So on October 13th, 2011, Yoko and her, their father was, um, there were interviewed. Well, this is when the broadcast when it aired. Um, but Yoko and the father told the audience everything they knew about what happened to Miami, which turned out to be quite a lot for nobody knowing what happened to her. Uh huh.

Oh, so Yoko then decided to search Miami's room to see if there was any clues about where she actually went or what her plans were. So in Miami's wardrobe, Yoko found a note that read, Quote. I was going out with a capital A but was betrayed. There is then the word Goldman G O M e n. Which, depending on where you're looking. Um, this can mean, like, dismissal or your pardon in English. So this is kind of translated to her asking for forgiveness. Hmm. And then she Miami continued to write. I'm sorry. And then this was followed by a phone number. Okay, so So it said I was going out with a capital letter. A Yeah, um, but was betrayed when I was betrayed. So basically, if you find this yeah, I was going out with a Yeah, I was betrayed. Yeah. Go, men. So please, please forgive me. I'm sorry. Here's a phone number, right? Exactly. So yoga decided to call the phone number to see who it led to. So she assumed that it would contact this mystery person A Because that's the only other person that was mentioned in the letter. And apparently it did. Now, this person who has never named um a stated that they were with Miami on the day she disappeared. Okay, So she did meet up with them. Yes. They then continued to say something along the lines that if Miami was found dead, they hoped that the punishment would be prison eso. Yoko found this conversation very suspicious, as I think we all would. That's very weird. And so she hired a private detective to follow A for roughly six months. She said she paid for six months. I don't know if that was up front or if that was just she paid for six months. That's a lot of this is a lot of information already. Just a note is a lot of information for Well, we don't know what happened. She disappeared. Yeah. Yeah, well, we'll get We'll get into the theories so I'll just continue. The story is pretty much almost over eso. In the time the private detective worked for the Rocky family, they only found or they only saw one, like fishy interaction with a So over the course of six months, they only saw one thing that they thought was suspicious. So on march 9th, 1995. So the next the next year? Yeah, the private detective saw this person a walking into the woods with two drinks. It's like two cans of juice or something. Mhm. However, upon further investigation, the police found nothing than private investigator kind of lost a because they walked into like, woods. Eso When they tried to follow, they kind of lost where they were. So they got the police involved, and the police searched the area. But nothing was ever nothing turned up. Nothing turned up about it. So this was pretty much the end of the investigation. So this is why there's really no information about her whereabouts. Eso this specific story, like all the information that was given is from Yoko, right? Like she's the one. She said she did all of this. There's really no other eye witnesses. Um, nobody did their own investigation, Like just straight up Yoko. Like this is her story. The police didn't. I mean, the police did probably do an initial investigation, but they didn't find anything. And they're not the ones that called the phone number. Like Yoko saying like I found the note, I called the number I talked A This is what they said. This is what I did. I got the private detective. This is what they said. You know what I mean? It's not like Oh, the police found the number that the police called. Check the phone. This is all her sister doing, right? So, um, the story Yoko told seemed I mean legit. Sure. Like whatever she found a note. She called the number. I mean, I'd probably do that if I found a strange note in your wardrobe with a phone number on it. Who is this? Yeah, I think I called dad first and then call. Yeah. What happened? Do I call this number or not? Can we do a group call? Because what you do face time you right now look at this note. Let's analyze the handwriting. Um, s O The only thing that the audience members who are watching this program found strange was in the backgrounds of the like. Where Yoka was sitting was a note pinned to a bookcase that read something along the lines of because this is a translation was written in Japanese, Obviously something along the lines of Don't trust Yoko. Don't trust the words of Yoko or don't trust Yoko's story. Oh, just like in plain view like s. So what happened was those who watched it live said that they saw an older woman walk into frame kind of mess with the bookshelf and then walk away. So they're kind of assuming that it was Yoko in Miami's mother because they still live together. Yeah, and I think it was their home. But people don't really know because I don't think she was interviewed. I think it was just Yoko and the father. So then she once she walked away, they saw this note. It's a pretty big note. Um, and that's basically what it said. But nobody really talked about on The interviewers didn't question it. The interviewees didn't say anything about it, so it was kind of strange because it's as if nobody no, it was like it was like it wasn't there, That's why. But it's a pretty big note for is there's no point where it looks like Yoko like notice that it was No, no, no. It would be like, What did she Yeah, yeah, nobody. The father didn't mention it on the cameras pointing right at it. None of the people doing the interview like pointed it out like nobody said anything. So the only time that it really got mentioned was in blog's and forums that yeah, that viewers were like, did you guys see that note like this? is crazy. So that was pretty much the end. Nothing really came up from the like. Nobody found anything after this segment. Nobody called it. Nobody has any clues. Her dad didn't really say much different. No, he pretty much corroborated what Yoko said, but it was. I mean, he really wasn't there. He was just like, Oh, well, this is what Yoka said. Blah, blah, blah. He agreed. He said Yes, that's what Yoga said. Yeah, yeah, What she's saying is what she's saying. Yes, I agree with her. It's things, is what she told us, right? And this is what I know, which wasn't a lot, um
