His daughter has hope in the FBI investigation

LAWRENCE, Kan. – The Prairie Village Police Department and the FBI want to find Angela Green.

Green, 51, was last seen in June 2019 but only went missing months later when her daughter realized she was not dead. Ellie Green, Angela’s daughter, says her father told her in 2019 that her mother had died of a stroke in a hospital and asked her not to tell her extended family.

When Green’s sister contacted her daughter about a wedding invitation, she told her aunt that her mother had died the previous year. The family demanded to see a death certificate. When Ellie went to Topeka and realized that none had ever been given, she called the Prairie Village Police Department and filed a missing person report.

In March 2020, PVPD served two warrants in this case. One on the family home in Prairie Village and another on a property in Olathe. Ellie Green told FOX4 it was a property where her father stored vintage cars away from home. Months later, in December, the department served a third warrant on the family’s second home in Lawrence. It was purchased in December 2019, months after Green was last seen.

Neighbors told FOX4 on Monday that the FBI and police went door to door and when Geoff Green left the neighborhood in his car, investigators followed him.

“The Angela Green case is a priority for the Prairie Village Police Department,” said Capt. Ivan Washington of the Prairie Village Police Department.

A priority and also a mystery. What happened to Angela Green continues to elude law enforcement.

“We will continue to search for facts until we can come up with a positive solution,” Washington said.

Green’s husband, Geoff, was never charged in the case but never agreed to speak to investigators. Shortly after a missing person report was filed with PVPD, Green obtained criminal defense counsel.

“Are you also looking for information on Geoff Green?” FOX4’s Sherae Honeycutt asked Washington.

“We can’t speak to the investigation, but I can say we are actively investigating this matter,” Washington said.

“Is there anyone in particular you’re looking at?” Honeycutt asked.

“Nothing I can share,” Washington said.

During the search of the Lawrence property in December 2020, neighbors told FOX4 investigators they dug up part of the backyard of the house. However, a year and a half later, there is no sign of Angela and no arrests in the case.

“I’m just glad they’re able to do more and dig even more honestly,” Angela’s daughter Ellie Green said.

Ellie said she’s glad the department is staying on the case.

On Sunday, Mother’s Day, she competes in the Miss Kansas pageant in Shawnee. If she wins, it’s on to the Miss USA pageant. Ellie says she and her mother have watched it together on TV every year.

“It will be a very sweet memory. I’ll have my friends and my people who I now count as family in the audience for me, with her from above, I’m going to be thrilled so it’s going to be awesome,” Green said.

However, she said the biggest prize would be finding her mother and ending the investigation.

“It’s not forgotten. We are always here. We are still working. We will deal with this matter until we can bring it to a positive resolution,” Washington said.

Ellie said she and her cousin, Michelle Guo, were still working to mount a civil case against her father Geoff. They are raise funds through Gofundme to hire a lawyer.

FOX4 contacted Geoff Green’s attorney on Monday but did not hear back. He has maintained over time that his client had no comment on the investigation.

Prairie Village Police say they want to hear any credible tips you know of. Due to the timeline of this case, this makes the investigation more difficult. You can reach them at (913)-642-6868.
