Before leaving for Bayfield to visit her family, she reportedly left her neighbor a note that said "decided to leave early," Beeson's friend Kassie Anderson said.

Anderson added that it is not like Beeson to do so before heading out of town, and to make the situation more strange, she texted her parents later that night, the last contact anyone had with her, but failed to mention she was coming to see them.
