Ashley's Story


According to family members, On September 19, 2013 Ashley Morris Mullis was a 28-year-old mother of three who was legally separated from her estranged husband at the time of her disappearance. A 62-year-old male named Daniel York Sr. befriended Ashley when she visited his auto repair shop seeking assistance with a vehicle repair.

Daniel York Sr. was a married man with a known penchant for younger women, it is our own opinion that Daniel York Sr. was a manipulative narcissistic individual that homed in on Ashley’s vulnerabilities.

An extra martial affair ensued resulting in the subsequent birth of a baby girl six months prior to Ashley’s disappearance.

Within a short period of time after Ashley’s disappearance several things occurred.

Ashley’s estranged husband petitioned the courts for an emergency custody hearing and gained full custody of both male minor children and was subsequently granted a divorce.

Daniel York Jr. the son of Daniel and Shelia York Sr. passed away shortly after Ashley's disappearance.

Daniel and Shelia York Sr. moved away to Florida taking the baby girl with them, Daniel York Sr. became ill and subsequently died in Florida on September 15, 2015. After his demise Shelia York manipulated the the legal system in Florida  so that she could adopt the baby girl without any consideration being given to what is in the minor child’s best interest child.

What is appalling is that the Florida and Indiana courts totally disregard judicial family law and the legal rights of said child. The family is of the belief  this adoption was illegal and not in the best interest of the child. Any reasonable person would reach the same logical conclusion taking into consideration that said child was born out of an extra martial affair and is not related to Shelia York.

Mr. & Mrs. Morris have not had the opportunity to have access nor contact with their granddaughter since the inception of Ashley’s case nor was any consideration given to the fact by the Florida or Indiana court system that the Morris’s are her God given legal biological grandparents.

In the interim Ashley’s parents are juggling multiple emotionally draining and gut-wrenching circumstances simultaneously. Not only are they actively seeking answers to what happened to their daughter Ashley 24 hours a day seven day a week for several years now. They were required to retain the services of not one but two attorneys Indiana and Florida dutifully to fight for their rights as the grandparents of said minor child in addition to petitioning the courts to be a representative for their missing daughter Ashley.

As if all that was not enough for this family to contend with they have discovered upon research that Daniel York Sr. was a person of interest in the death of Heather Musick of Muncie, Indiana.

As for the now decease Daniel York Sr. when he was confronted by both Mr. Morris and the leading Investigator regarding Ashley’s whereabouts there were discrepancies in his stories.

The Morris family are asking please be brave and step up and tell what you know to the authorities, do it anonymously but just please just do it.  Bring this family’s suffering to an end.
