Family Seeks Help In Search Of Missing Woman

Posted October 16, 2003

— Latoya Foreman's family is pulling together to bring the missing 21-year-old home. They spent Thursday afternoon putting up fliers with her picture, hoping someone will call with answers.

"The past 48 hours have been devastating," said Emma Jones, Foreman's aunt. "We have absolutely no idea why anybody would want to bring any harm to her."

A friend found Foreman's car Monday night with keys in the ignition and personal items still inside. Foreman was last seen leaving her job at Parkwood Mall around 9 p.m.

"She called me and said, 'Grandma, can you pick up my brother up from school because I have to go to work at 4 o'clock early,' and that's the last conversation any of the family has had with her," said Charity Lodge, Foreman's grandmother.

Police have searched the neighborhood where Foreman's car was found. Authorities also used K-9 units and helicopters to assist in the search to no avail.

"I just feel like there is somebody out there that knows something," Jones said. "We want people to see her face and just imagine if this was your daughter, if this was your sister, your cousin, you would want someone to come forward with any kind of information they had."

Foreman is a black woman, approximately 5 feet 4 inches tall, 130 pounds, with light skin and brown eyes. Investigators said she occasionally wears green contacts.

Authorities are focused on talking with anyone who knows who she hangs out with or what her plans might have been Monday night. Anyone with information is asked to call the Wilson Police Department at
