MP of the week: Julie Englehart

This week’s featured missing person is Julie Danielle Englehart, a 47-year-old woman who disappeared with her husband, John Wade Roberts, also 47, and their daughter, 9-year-old Brooke Addison Roberts, from Hesperia, California in October 2019.

Julie called a relative on October 6 and said she’d found a job and the family was in the process of moving. She said she’d call back the next day, but never did, and no one saw or heard from her or her husband or child again. They weren’t reported missing until 2021.

That’s all the info there is to report, unfortunately. The family was just… gone.

If still alive, Julie and John would be fifty years old today and Brooke would be twelve. I hope they’re still alive.

    This family’s story gives me chills in the worst way. Like what the heck?! Where are they?! They can’t just be gone, yet they are

      I’m not saying this is what happened but I wonder about a possible Charles Ng/Leonard Lake situation happening.

        That could very well be… At this point and these days, anything is possible. I’m always hopeful for a Ariel Castro outcome where they’re just being held captive. After that happened, It made me wonder… how many are possibly in a situation like that? I mean ten years… it’s crazy. I hope they are found but they’ve been gone a long time. Ugh

      It reminds me of the Jack family who went missing in B.C. Canada in 1989 in very similar circumstances.

    I wonder if this is drug related, and those trailers she was cleaning for an unspecified business were meth labs. If they were living in a Motel 6, the possibility of making some quick cash, even if it was from some not great people, probably seemed like an opportunity too good to pass up, and she saw some things or knew some things she shouldn’t have.

    I agree that that’s the first thought that came to mind: meth. That’s a pretty intense meth area, and they were obviously down on their luck. I also thought of an accident where they went off a cliff or into the water and are still there. That happens pretty often too.

    Is anyone even looking for them? Was there ever a search? I look up this case from time to time and very little information on them. Hesperia, the high desert and many area of the San Bernardino county are drug riddled. In one news story it stated that they planned to move to an area near Spring Valley.
    Was that even checked out? Was John or Julie known to use? Three people, just gone. Like some of the posts above state, possibilities are encountered a bad drug deal gone wrong, they owed people money, gone off a cliff or into a body of water. Or simply chose to go off the grid.
