Kaylan Leighann Goodman joined a mag crew and virtually vanished.
An Update to our Update: Kaylan is back in Bay City with her family.

UPDATE: Goodman was located late Wednesday night by Fairmont City, Illinois, police, according to the Kingfisher Police Department. "We have verified her well being" through a phone conversation, the department stated. We hope to have more later today.

A Bay City woman is looking for her 18-year-old sister, who disappeared from her Oklahoma City-area home last month after joining a traveling magazine sales crew.

Lorrie Goodman says her sister, Kaylan Leighann Goodman, inexplicably quit her job, stopped all her utilities and disappeared around January 24 with a man who works for a sham company calling itself both Lrumar Publications and Lucretius Phocylides. Her grandmother, Frances Downs, told us Kaylan had rerouted her mail to the company's address, which is actually a post office box in a UPS Store in Falcon, Colorado, about 15 miles outside Colorado Springs.

Kaylan was last seen February 10 in Mangum, Oklahoma, in a car driven by Scott Bindle Biddle, according to a Kingfisher Police Department incident report. (The report lists his name as "Bindle," but his name is now listed on the "missing" poster as Scott Anthony Biddle, d/o/b/ July 26, 1982. He may be driving a white 2002 Ford van with Colorado license plate 169TOE). She called her family the following day, but her phone has since been shut off. She also removed her Facebook profile, and while she left her truck parked outside her work at a boutique, she took all her other belongings from her apartment.

Although Lrumar lists a Colorado address on its insanely crude Web site, its customer service line has an area code serving southern California. Colorado Better Business Bureau records list the owner as David Bacon, with managers Crystal and Mike Davis. Crystal Cox is listed as heading the "resolutions" department.

It's a gamble as to whether those are real names; like most other mag crews, Lrumar is simply a scam to sell bogus magazine subscriptions; there are media reports nationwide of Lrumar sales agents being busted for burglary, lack of licensing, and other offenses.

Lrumar sales agents use the same spiel as their slimy counterparts: They're just earnest kids trying to sell enough subscriptions to win a contest to travel abroad, or they're raising money for a local children's hospital.

The shitheels who poach these oft-impressionable kids are the dregs of society, and they endanger both their lives and the lives of whatever unfortunate schmuck opens the door to hear the sales pitch.

Update: We've heard from Lrumar owner Kevin Davis, who had some weird stuff to say. Oh -- and did you know he already had a warrant out for his arrest?

Please call the Bay City Police Department at 979-245-8500, or the Kingfisher (Oklahoma) Police Department at 405-375-4311 if you have any information.

I so agree! These unsuspecting kids selling these bogus subscriptions could fall victim to child predators!

I have subscriptions to magazines but they are through the magazine's company. People can also go online to look at their magazine and not pay one cent.

I would like to response to the crazy stories on theinternet about me. My name is Kevin, I contacted by a member from the NationalField Selling Association about a missing girl. That night I called the girl’smanager on the phone, Scott Biddle. He informed me that the girl lost herphone. I told him she needed to call her parents and the Kingfisher PoliceDepartment.

About an hour later I receive a phone call stating Kaylanhad called home spoke to her parents, and was on the phone with the police, whenthey traced the phone she was talking on to her location. This was by theFairmont Police Department.

Seven hours later, I receive a phone call from Kaylanstating she doesn’t want to go home. She informed me that her “little” (fewerthan 18) sister is a media glory hound, she thinks this will get her famous. Shealso informed me that Mr. Biddle was locked and NO charges were filed againsthim. When I called down to the Police Station, spoke to the Detective on thecase. He told me he could hold him FOREVER without charging him. It’s called “HomelandSecurity”.

I then called Kaylan’s father. I asked him if he would buyher a ticket to go home, that I would make sure she was on the plane. The onlything I asked in return was for him to call off his “Boys in Blue”. He told methat he would make Mr. Biddle “surface”. He laughed at the fact he has “Hispals in Blue, having Mr. Biddle under the jail and nobody can find him”. Only ifI promised to never give his daughter a job again. (Amazing, this is America,backdoor deals with the POLICE?) I have all of this on tape. Kaylan was takento the airport, put on the 7:55pm Southwest flight to Hobby. She was received byher father and mother. He called me as soon as she landed.

That’s when Mr. Biddle was then allowed to make a phone callto tell someone his bail. They booked him under a false name he used to get outof trouble when he was 12. This was listed on their NCIC database. When theyran his fingerprints through the national data base, it came back as a AKA also.So they booked and charged him with “Giving False ID to the Police”.  Released him on $125. Ticket/Bond.

Since all the drama started, I’ve had Kaylan call me so manytimes. Begging to come back to work for my company. She lives in an area wherethere is no work for young people. Even for a hairdresser. She wants to travel.She has traveled with one of my crews and loved it. There wasn’t any drug orbooze. They just had a good time. After 27 calls I told her she could come backto work. She’s in travel right now, but if anyone would like to speak with her,she will be posting within the next 48 hours a way for you to contact her onthe phone.

Our company has had 43 complaints with the BBB. We processover 1,400 orders a week. In the eight years our company has cleared over627,200 orders. That’s less than 1%. Say what you want about us, we offerpeople jobs. Pay them a fair wage, and travel. I can’t help it they have funSELLING MAGAZINES!

The warrant out for my arrest is for less than 1 gram ofhash. This was found in one of my barns at my home. Thank you for taking thetime out of your day to read my response.

On Tuesday January 17th, my daughter was followed home from her school bus stop  by a man in white van.  He drove the van beside her as she walked.  As soon as she noticed him, she ran.  This man parked the van across the street from our house and watched my daughter enter our home.  I called the police.  The man came back by the house a second time before the police arrived.  Because of similar incidents, it was reported to the media.  My daughter was interviewed by two Oklahoma stations.  I found out later from a Detective Cook of the Edmond Police that they believe the guy that followed my daughter was selling magazines and looking for recruits.  I was told that the guy was based out of Texas and his story checked out. 

I want to know what this van and the person driving it looks like.  To me, it seems that this person left the Edmond area and went to Kingfisher for his victims.

My name is Ricky Phillips, Director of Operation:SafeHome, an organization dedicated to assist the young people who victims of the dreams of fast money and travel. I was tracking a crew last summer with Colorado plates and a similar plate as the plate named in this article was also on a Ford white 15-passenger van. which makes me wonder if they are the same crew that was here......I am interested in investigating the sales crew mania to put an end.......

Please read my post and if you think that its related to the crew that you are tracking, then contact Detective Cook with the Edmond Police in Edmond, OK.

The biggest concern isn't that they are scamming people, although it is a crime. The biggest concern is that they use children and teens to do it and promise them money and or rewards. Perhaps when they come to the door our response should be to ask these kids if they need help! Praying for Kaylan and her family. Shanna

Call the cops if you see these people in your hood.  The also run a laundry detergent scam.  They travel in a white van, and they follow each other's paths to conceal their numbers.

These people are sleezy and teach young people to prey on old folks.  They tried to take advantage of my elderly mother.  Even asked her to cook breakfast for them.  They are running a true scam.  Keep your doors shut!
