Desiree Thompson (30) vanished under suspicious circumstances on January 7th, 2012. She was last seen that evening after a frightening incident with her estranged ex-husband, Edward 'Face' Gibson III (pictured below). There were reportedly several instances of domestic violence and encounters with the police throughout Desiree's relationship with Gibson. On the night of her disappearance, Gibson showed up at Desiree's home in California City, California unannounced. When Desiree answered the door, Gibson pointed a shotgun at her face. It appears that no shots were actually fired at that time, as Desiree was seen alive just a few hours after that incident. After that last sighting, she was never seen or heard from again.

Desiree is the niece of songwriter/producer Kenneth Howard Smith--who is most famously known for his work on Motown and D-Town Records. Smith has reportedly used his numerous resources to help spread awareness about Desiree's disappearance, but unfortunately very few leads and clues have turned up. Investigators have also been searching for Gibson, who also vanished on the evening of Desiree's disappearance--and it is believed that he is on the run. Gibson is wanted on charges of burglary, domestic violence, violating a court order, brandishing a firearm, and possessing a firearm as a felon. Additionally, Gibson remains the only person of interest/suspect in Desiree's case.
Gibson is described as 6'3" and approximately 200 pounds. Investigators warn that he may be armed and dangerous. Anyone with information about his whereabouts is urged to contact authorities.
