Marie Fontenot is a young Louisiana girl who goes missing circa 1990. Her mother files a police report but not much is done about it as it is assumed that she ran off with her birth father and the sheriff at the time apparently felt she would be better off there.
Whilst investigating the murder of Dora Lange, Detectives Martin Hart and Rustin "Rust" Cohle are informed of the disappearance of Marie 5 years previously, when one of the people they are questioning assumes it is her body that has been found. They visit her uncle due to what Cohle will later call intuition. He is in poor health and can hardly talk but the woman he lives with informs the detectives that Marie had played at their house more often than her mother's and that they had cared deeply for the girl. She also claims not to know where she currently is but states that she also believes Marie to have run off with her father.
