Michelle Warner Missing: Houston Mom Disappears After Fight With Ex-Boyfriend

A Houston woman has vanished after an argument with her ex-boyfriend, who then skipped town with the couple's 3-year-old son.

Michelle Warner, 31, was last seen around midnight on Saturday, at the apartment complex where she was living with her ex, Mark Castellano, and their son, Cayden, ABC reports.

Authorities say Warner stormed out of the apartment after a fight with Castellano, KHOU reports. Later that night, Castellano took Cayden over eight hours away to stay with relatives.

Loved ones say this kind of disappearance is uncharacteristic of Warner. “She would never ever go this long without talking to somebody,” Stephanie Helton, who has known Warner since elementary school, told KHOU.

Family members who visited the apartment over the past few days noticed that the carpets had been freshly treated with bleach.

Warner is described as 5-foot-6, around 120 pounds, KTRK reports. She has blue eyes, dark brown hair, a dolphin tattoo on the back of her shoulder and a small butterfly tattoo on one foot. She also has a small stud ring on the right side of her nose.
