Jessica Masker (24) gave birth to a premature baby two months before disappearing from Indianapolis, Indiana on April 15th, 2013. The baby had been hospitalized since birth due to the premature status, and Jessica had been visiting him regularly. She posted the above photos, amongst many others, to her Facebook page on March 3rd, 2013. By all accounts, Jessica appeared to be enthusiastic about her son’s progress and dedicated to her other child as well. However, a month and half after posting these photos, Jessica vanished.
According to relatives, Jessica had been struggling in the days before her disappearance. In fact, on the day before she vanished, Jessica was involuntarily committed to the hospital after possibly taking a drug overdose. She apparently checked out of the hospital a few hours later and went to stay with a cousin. Jessica then left her cousin’s home at 4:30am on the morning of the 15th after an argument. She called her mother shortly after leaving, saying she was afraid because two men “came at her wrong.” After that, Jessica has not been seen or heard from again.
Jessica’s family believes that she left her cousin’s house that morning to go get drugs. They also worry that she may have been attempting to meet up with her abusive boyfriend. Relatives claim that this boyfriend got Jessica hooked on drugs and had previously been in jail for abusing her. Police say they have spoken to this boyfriend, and that he claims he does not know what happened to Jessica. While both authorities and family members do not believe him, there is currently no other concrete evidence to prove otherwise.
Jessica remains missing today. If you have any information/tips about her disappearance, please report it here.
