The husband of an American woman, who has been missing for six weeks in Japan, said Thursday that she had threatened to kill herself the night she disappeared after the two argued.
Vince Abad, an airman at a major U.S. Air Force facility in Japan, said he and his wife, Kelli, had fought over the phone on the night of October 26 after he had gone to see their pastor, who had helped resolve disputes between them in the past.
When he returned home, his wife was gone and their two children were in bed.
"We'd had arguments before - it didn't feel too out of place," Abad, 30, said. He said he assumed she had gone to stay with a friend.
But when Kelli Abad, 27, didn't come back by the following morning, he became concerned and raised the alarm.
Two days later, the wife's car, a Toyota SUV, was found at Cape Zanpa on the island of Okinawa, about 10 miles from the base, with her cell phone and purse inside.
Also inside the car was a note, Abad said, that read, "Love my kids, love my hubby and parents. Bye."FULL STORY
