The clock ticks by, but your loved one is nowhere to be seen. Sixty minutes have turned into hours, and your heart is pounding in your chest. Where are they? What happened?
An internet user asked, Am I a jerk for calling the police on my fiance? We want you to decide.
Last night OP’s (35M) fiance (38F) left in the evening to give a friend’s son a ride back to his home. She implied she’d be home before 9. She left at around 7:45.
10:15 rolled around, and she still wasn’t home. OP texted, and she apologized to him, saying that her friend’s son was actually in the next town over (maybe 30 minutes away) and she was coming home now.
What Happened Next?
11:45 rolled around, and she still hadn’t come home, so OP called her to no answer. Texted her to no response. He was getting very upset.
12.30 rolled around, and still no response and no answer to his phone calls. OP was extremely angry.
1:30 rolled around, and OP’s anger had completely transformed into worry. Not answering my calls and texts not read.
What Did OP Do Then?
Around 1:45, OP called the police.
He says, “I have always heard that the first 24 hours of someone missing is the most important, so I didn’t want to delay. I asked them to let me know if there had been any traffic accidents involving her car, and the operator told me that they would put out the word and send some cops to check along the route she would travel.
I called all the hospitals in the area to check if she had been checked in, and I waited outside watching the road for her car for three hours, partially because I didn’t want the kids to hear me on the phone with hospitals, and secondly because I was sick with worry.”
When Did OP’s Fiance Come Home?
At 7:00 am, she came home. She apologized for being out and said she had no excuse. She was driving home and felt tired, like she was falling asleep at the wheel, so she pulled over to the side of the road to sleep. When she did that, she found that her brand-new phone had stopped working. She says she napped anyway because it was the responsible thing to do, and then came home at 7 am to bring the kids to school and get to work on time.
OP immediately called the police and told them that she had come home safely and gave them the case number, and told them to stop searching, which they did.
What Happened When She Left For Work?
OP’s fiance brought the kids to school and left for work. He set out to start cleaning (cleaning de-stresses him sometimes), and OP got a call from a policeman asking where she worked.
He told him and asked why, and he was informed that it was their policy to check on the person’s wellness after a missing person is found. OP asked them not to go by her work but to give her a call instead. He said he couldn’t promise.
Did The Cop Show Up At Her Workplace?
OP’s fiance is relatively new to her job. A police officer showed up and asked to speak with her. She is now enraged at OP for calling the police and ‘sending a cop to her work’ and making her look bad.
OP says, “She is saying I overreacted and that she wasn’t missing and that I was punishing her for doing the responsible thing and not driving while drowsy. She is saying that she will never leave the house again except for work because she is afraid I will call the cops on her again.
So did I overreact? Should I have waited two days as she suggests?”
Sorry, Can’t Buy Her Story
“I don’t believe her story one bit. Driving a kid home and disappearing for the entire night is a massive red flag. How does she not even know where he lives when she starts the drive? How old is this kid?
Pulling over and sleeping on the side of the road for a 30-minute drive is nuts. She is now turning this around to say she is the victim of your actions.”
Of Course, You Were Going To Call The Police
“She said she was on her way home at 10:15 pm and then disappeared until 7 am. Of COURSE, you were going to call the police and have them go looking for her. If she’d been in an accident or worse, she would’ve been dead if you’d waited two days to call.
That being said, she’s definitely lying about what happened. It honestly sounds more like she fell asleep at her affair partner’s place and concocted that bogus excuse to cover herself.”
She’s Hiding Something
“Something is up. That excuse doesn’t fly. It just doesn’t make sense that she’d sleep all night in her car to avoid a 30-minute drive home. I don’t blame you for calling the cops; her reaction is out of line. I think she’s hiding something.
If her friend’s son was 30 minutes away, she should have been back by 9. I’m 95% sure she’s lying to you about where she was. Sorry to be the bearer of bad news here.”
