Celeste was born on February 8, 1958. Not much is known about her biological parents, as she was orphaned from since she was a toddler. As such, very little is known about Celeste's life before she was adopted by the Felton family sometime later.
One afternoon, at around 4PM on Thursday October 14th, 1971, Celeste vanished out of the blue. She was last seen on a swing at a playground near to the Felton home wearing all white and her hair tressed into a single plait.
In their investigation, the police found no evidence to suggest a kidnapping, as the Feltons never received a ransom note, and they and her adoptive father came to maintain that Celeste had simply walked out one day and never returned. The story of her disappearance became a popular news topic in the two years that followed because of the strange nature of her disappearance. Some believed that the story of Celeste being a runaway was a cover-up to hide something sinister.
Sometime after she walked out, Celeste abruptly returned home, unbeknownst to the police. After her return, it was noticed by Richard that she had changed somehow and was not the same person he knew. In his own words, "... it wasn't Celeste... it was Jennifer..."
For reasons that are as of yet unknown, Rosemary Reed became drawn to the case and began digging for clues. It was discovered that Richard would sometimes call Celeste by a different name: Jennifer.
Felton later claimed to have killed Jennifer while she was sleeping when he encountered Rosemary trespassing in his home.
