Details of Disappearance
Phylis was last seen leaving her residence on John Street near Kelso, Washington in Cowlitz County on December 27, 1996. Her husband, Bill Lewellen, told authorities she decided to go for a drive during the evening hours. He said that she was in good spirits at the time and wanted to "think."

Phylis wrote a check after she left the house, on Ocean Beach Highway, but that is the last trace of her. Bill told reporters that his wife never withdrew any money from the couple's bank accounts or used their credit cards after her disappearance. He stated that he believed foul play was involved in Phylis's case.

She was a stay-at-home mother with two children in December 1996, and she bred quarter horses. Bill divorced her on grounds of abandonment nine months after her disappearance; he stated the divorce was necessary for financial reasons, since many of their assets were in Phylis's name only. He has since remarried.

In 2005, a woman strongly resembling Phylis was photographed at a motorcycle rally. Friends and relatives were convinced the woman was her, but she turned out to be another person. Phylis's disappearance remains unsolved.
