    Jamie Haggard (27) was found dead in a suitcase two years after she went missing

    Haggard was last seen in Kenmore, Washington on June 9, 2016. She had come to visit her father and he noticed she seemed sad. She has never been heard from again. Her father reported her missing on June 17.

    It's uncharacteristic of Haggard to leave without warning; she usually spoke to her father at least every other day. Although she had separated from her twin daughters' father, she had a good relationship with him and they shared joint custody of the children. Her family said she was having personal problems and was depressed and dissatisfied with her life at the time of her disappearance.

    Haggard is considered missing under suspicious circumstances and police believe she's probably dead. Since she was last seen she hasn't used her credit cards or cellular phone. Her case remains unsolved.

    Twenty-seven-year-old Jamie Haggard was extremely close with her family. She and her sister Stephanie Haggard did everything together, their father Arthur "Lee" Haggard told Dateline.

    ?They even dressed alike,? Lee recalled to Dateline. ?But as time moved on, [Jamie] became very independent.?

    Lee said Jamie grew into a ?very smart, and very ambitious? woman and decided to join the medical field, eventually becoming a medical assistant.

    Along the way, Jamie became a mother. In 2008, she gave birth to her twin daughters Dylan and Madison Rose when she was 19 years old. She separated from the girls? father, Jake Rose, soon after their birth, but the pair remained close and shared custody of the children.

    In early of 2016, Jamie was going through a rough time, according to her father Lee.

    ?She was just sad. She didn?t like where she was living, she didn?t like some of the people who were hanging around where she lived,? Lee told Dateline. He believes Jamie might have been going through a period of depression.

    A close family friend who Lee calls a ?surrogate daughter,? told Dateline she also noticed Jamie was going through something.

    ?She was going through a hard time in her life -- breaking up with her fianc?,? the friend, who asked to remain anonymous, told Dateline.

    Around this time, Jamie?s friend said Jamie moved in with her until she could get back on her feet. Jamie still spent time with her daughters, who were staying with their father Jake.

    In March 2016, Jamie found a place of her own to rent in Kenmore, Washington. Later that month, her father told Dateline, Jamie came over to visit him at his home about 15 minutes away in Bothell, Washington, where Jamie grew up.

    On June 9, 2016, Lee says he remembers Jamie seeming sad. He was very aware of her depression, and says they spent the day with their extended family.

    That, Lee told Dateline, was the last time he saw his daughter.

    Lee said he usually spoke with his daughter at least every other day, and became concerned when he hadn?t heard from her for a few days. Lee also said his son David, Jamie?s half-brother, who had been staying at Jamie?s place, came by to ask him if he had seen Jamie.

    Lee thought it was strange that no one had spoken to his daughter. So he called her friend and learned that she also hadn?t heard from Jamie in days and had been concerned as well. That?s when, on June 17, 2016, Lee decided to go to Jamie?s home and look for her. He couldn't find her anywhere, so he flagged down a Kenmore Police officer who was driving by and reported Jamie missing.

    About a month later, on July 15, King County Sheriff's Office excavated the backyard of Jamie?s home, but did not locate any remains.

    About one year after that, King County Sheriff's Office posted on their Twitter account to say ?new information had led detectives to search section of backyard at house? in Kenmore,? for a ?missing woman's body.? A later tweet stated they did not find anything in the second excavation.

    Sergeant Ryan Abbott with the King County Sheriff?s Office told Dateline Jamie?s case is active and ongoing, but he could not provide additional information, to protect the integrity of the investigation.

    Jamie?s daughters Madison and Dylan now live with their father Jake. Lee says that, at first, his granddaughters were confused as to why they didn?t get to see their mother.

    ?They thought [their father] was trying to keep them away from their mom,? Lee explained through tears. He told Dateline he is upset the situation has caused so much confusion and sadness for the girls, who are now 10 years old.

    Jamie?s friend said things were starting to look better for Jamie when she disappeared. ?It kills me to know she was figuring things out and had everything going for her, and somebody took that away from her,? she said.

    ?It's really hard some days,? the friend continued. ?These two beautiful girls who are growing up without their mom.?

    Jake has since remarried, and his wife adopted the twins. Lee says he is happy the girls have the loving parents they do.

    Lee continues to post on social media in the hope that if Jamie is out there, she will know he is always looking for her.

    ?I think about Jamie all the time, and I dream that she's coming home,? Lee said. ?Everywhere you go, you think you see someone who looks like her, sounds like her, laughs like her. It's really hard to miss somebody that you raised from day one, just have her yanked away from you.?

    Jamie Haggard would be 29 years old today. She is described at 5?6? and weighs about 120 lbs., with brown hair and dark brown eyes. If you have any information, please contact the King County Sheriff's Office (206) 296-3311.

    Oh damn, they almost didn't find her. It's kind of scary to think of how often that might really happen to the remains of missing persons

    Remains of woman missing since 2016 found in Washington state

    The remains of Jamie Haggard, a Washington state woman who was missing for years, was found near Snohomish in May this year, King County Sheriff officials said Thursday.(National Missing and Unidentified Persons System)

    KENMORE, WASH. ? The remains of a Washington state woman who was missing for years was found near Snohomish in May this year, King County sheriff?s officials said Thursday.

    The remains have been identified as Jamie Haggard.

    Haggard was reported missing in June 2016.

    Officials said the remains were found near Downes Road and Fales Road on May 9. Deputies said a crew cleaning up roadside litter found the remains near a suitcase and blanket.

    KIRO-TV?s Deedee Sun learned from the King County Sheriff?s Office on Friday that a crew picking up trash along SR522 found Haggard?s body inside a suitcase but almost missed the crucial discovery.

    ?A road crew found it; it was on the side of a road. And they put the suitcase up to get it picked up by a dump truck. Just prior to the dump truck picking it up, they opened it, and that?s when they found remains inside,? said Sgt. Ryan Abbot, with the King County Sheriff?s Office.

    Her cause of death was homicidal violence, authorities said.

    Search crews combed the area near where her body was found looking for more evidence that could lead to Haggard?s killer.

    "This is a horrible case, very tragic. She had two daughters, a family that cares a lot about her. So this is heartbreaking. To get a little bit of closure, to find at least her remains ? but we still have a lot of work to do because we still have to find out who is responsible for this,? Abbott said.

    Good. I can't imagine the job of the ME having to figure out an autopsy on dismembered remains that had been in a suitcase for two years.
