Annapolis Police hope the public can shed new light and provide fresh clues in an Annapolis woman's disappearance a year ago Thursday.

Megan Tillman, 42, was reported missing on Nov. 1, 2017. A cousin who reported Tillman's absence said the mother of a 7-year-old daughter had grown estranged from her family over the previous months. As family realized no one had heard from her in quite some time, they reported her missing to police.

Tillman resided with her mother, 62-year-old Gloria Owens, her fiance William Rice Jr., 43, and Christina Stallings, 41, in a rented townhouse in the unit block of Rockwell Court. Owens had moved out shortly before Tillman disappeared. The other residents were evicted on Nov. 1, 2017, and Rice and Stallings moved out of state, police said.

Tillman's daughter was not living in the home at the time, but Tillman was in regular contact with her, police said. Tillman also updated her social media accounts consistently, but she has not contacted her daughter nor continued communicating on those accounts since her disappearance. 

Tillman drove a champagne-colored 2008 Jeep Cherokee with Maryland tags 5DA7534. The car was covered with several distinct stickers on the rear, including one of a sailboat, a Harley Davidson Motorcycles image, and a sign of a motorcycle that said "LOOK TWICE, SAVE A LIFE." The truck was found in a Prince George's County shopping center on Nov. 13.

Police said Tillman can be "easily manipulated and has been described as having borderline intellectual functioning."

Police ask anyone who may have seen or contacted Tillman, or who may know of her whereabouts, to contact Detective Aaron Stein at 410-260-3439 or acstein@annapolis.gov. Anonymous tips can also be sent to Metro Crime Stoppers (1-866-7LOCKUP) or the Annapolis Police Tip Line (410-280-CLUE).
