In a series of events that left the online community baffled, an individual recently shared his unsettling experience of calling the police on his fiancée.
The original poster (OP) recounted how his fiancée went missing for hours after leaving to give a friend’s son a ride home.
The situation escalated when the concerned partner called the authorities, leading to a whirlwind of emotions, accusations, and speculations.
It all started on an ordinary evening. Around 7:45 PM, OP’s fiancée left to drop off her friend’s son at his home.
She assured OP that she would be back before 9 PM.
However, as the hours passed and the clock struck 11:45 PM, OP became increasingly anxious and worried when she didn’t return.
His attempts to reach her through calls and texts were met with silence.
As the night wore on, OP’s emotions took a toll on him. OP transformed from anger and annoyance to worry and fear for his fiancée’s safety.
By 1:45 AM, OP decided to take action and called the police to report his fiancée missing.
His decision was based on the belief that the first 24 hours are crucial in a missing person case, prompting him not to delay seeking help.
The police assured OP that they would look into the matter and dispatched officers to check along the route that his fiancée would have taken.
In the meantime, OP took it upon himself to call all the hospitals in the area, checking if she had been admitted.
At 7:00 AM, to OP’s immense relief and shock, he heard the door being unlocked. In the doorway was his fiancée.
She apologized for being out and explained that she felt tired while driving back and pulled over to the side of the road to take a nap.
However, she discovered that her brand new phone had stopped working, preventing her from communicating her situation to OP.
She decided to rest anyway and woke up at 7:00 AM to bring the kids to school and get to work on time.
Relieved that his fiancée was safe, OP immediately contacted the police to inform them of her return, providing the case number to close the search.
However, the aftermath of the incident was far from calm.
A police officer visited OP’s fiancée at her workplace as part of their policy to check on the well-being of a missing person once they are found.
This encounter left her furious with OP, accusing him of overreacting and causing embarrassment for her at work.
As OP turned to the online community seeking advice, a large number of users weighed in with their opinions.
Some, like MinerReddit, expressed doubt about OP’s fiancée’s story, considering her disappearance and lack of knowledge about her destination suspicious.
The user found it hard to believe that she would sleep in her car for the entire night to avoid driving 30 minutes home.
Automatic_Time9227 took a more sarcastic stance, hinting at a potential affair.
“I think your fiancée is [having an affair] two towns over my guy.”
On the other hand, Fading__blue supported OP’s actions, emphasizing that calling the police promptly was the right thing to do.
The user pointed out that waiting more, as suggested by OP’s fiancée, could have been detrimental if she had been in an accident or worse.
Tim-oBedlam echoed the skepticism, believing that OP’s fiancée’s explanation was implausible.
The user also sympathized with OP’s concerns and suspected that something else might be going on.
“If her friend’s son was 30 minutes away, then 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.”
The__Riker__Maneuver‘s comment added weight to the suspicions.
The user bluntly asserted that OP’s fiancée’s story was a lie, and she had cheated.
This assessment aligned with the sentiments shared by other users, intensifying the online debate.
Lastly, ParsimoniousSalad noted that while it was commendable that OP’s fiancée did not drive while drowsy, her explanation lacked credibility.
This user also questioned the hours-long absence and emphasized the importance of an honest account to rebuild trust.
As OP shared the story, the majority of the online community sided with OP expressing that it was only right to involve authorities as the fiancée was missing.
Meanwhile, many of the users also showed disbelief in the story narrated by OP’s fiancée regarding her absence for the whole night.
Ultimately, the case of the missing fiancée highlights the significance of addressing doubts and fears in a relationship before they escalate into distrust and suspicion.
