Allyson Watterson Part 1
20-year-old Allyson Watterson disappeared just before Christmas in December 2019. Allyson was a young woman with her entire life ahead of her, trying to figure out what she wanted to pursue as a career path. She was last seen by her boyfriend on December 22, 2019, and his stories about that day were shaky, at best. He claims that they walked into the woods and got separated. His stories on how they got separated vary. Ben emerged from the woods the following day and Allyson was never seen again. While we were working on this story, on June 20, 2020, the remains of Allyson Watterson were found not far from where Ben said he last saw her. Though she is no longer missing, telling her story is still important. This week’s two-part series tells the story of Allyson Watterson, her love of life, the tragic loss her family has endured, and their continued search for answers.
