Melissa's case is riddled with more questions than answers. It's unclear when, exactly, she vanished--but it appears that Melissa might have dropped out of sight shortly after her final Facebook post was made. She never replied to any of the comments on the post. Then, weeks after the post was made, a man claiming to be Melissa's ex-boyfriend commented. The comments from the ex-boyfriend appear to be positive on a surface level, but the subsequent replies to his comments suggest that there is much more to the story.
Her ex-boyfriend commented, "I miss you biskets please hit me up I live in tacoma off 66th and ferdinand I would love to see you." Just minutes later, he wrote another comment, stating, "I hope everything is going good for you and you found yourself again. I've never stopped loving you and am here for you if you need me. I opened my tile business again and things are lookin up. Give Lola a hug and kiss from her dad and please get a hold of me i miss love you two very much."
When a person replied to question if the ex was still seeing Melissa, he replied, "No she yold (sic) everyone we broke up when I was in jail and she lost everything I owned including my car and I just came to realize she didnt love me at all. She just used me."
Another person replied to the ex-boyfriend's second comment, stating "I thought you were engaged to someone else you dork." The ex replied, "I am but I still care about Taylor I need to know if shes ok I've been hear some disturbing shit brother." There is no further elaboration on the "disturbing shit" that the ex reportedly heard and it's unclear if this information has ever been investigated by authorities.
Since then, there has seemingly been very little information about Melissa's disappearance in the mainstream media or on social media. Although Melissa was living in Oregon or Washington around the time of her disappearance, her page on the Charley Project states that authorities in Taunton, Massachusetts are investigating her disappearance. It's possible that Melissa has ties to that area through family or work, but there are no other reports that mention Taunton in regards to her disappearance.
