Phoenix ColdonAs previously reported by Newsone in our “Find Our Missing” feature segment, Phoenix Coldon, 23, has been missing since December 18, 2011. Since that time, Coldon’s  family has been desperately spending their life savings searching for her; now a heartless joke has caused them to lose their home.

The Huffington Post reports:

A tip that led the family to Texas came from a man who claimed to know Coldon’s whereabouts and provided her family with very convincing details, Goldia Coldon said. The family already had invested much of their money to search for Phoenix, she said, but spent the remainder of their savings on private investigators to follow up on the lead. It was not until after the family’s money was gone that the man who provided the tip admitted he fabricated the story, Coldon said.

“They said he made it up to get attention,” she said. “It cost us dearly and it led absolutely nowhere. It was just his idea of a joke.”

“The authorities said there is nothing they can do to the man. In my opinion, he impeded the investigation. He took money, time and energy that we could have been using to follow other leads because he wanted to perpetrate a joke.”
