LaToya Grissom has been missing since September 5th, 2007. The 25 year-old woman lived with her grandmother and her two children in Texarkana, Texas at the time. On the day of her disappearance, LaToya left the apartment complex where she lived around 3:30pm. She was seen getting into a dark-colored sedan shortly thereafter. LaToya did not say where she was going before she left, but she told her grandmother she would be back soon. Unfortunately, LaToya never returned and has never been seen or heard from again.
LaToya's family members reported her missing a few days later. Then, years passed with seemingly no trace of her. Over three years after LaToya's disappearance, in October 2010, her purse and a few other personal belongings were found scattered near a creek in Texarkana. Still, LaToya herself remained missing and investigators did not appear any closer to solving her case.
In August 2020, it was announced that investigators finally might be getting closer to finding answers in LaToya's case. A spokesperson for the Texarkana police department stated that during recent months, they have been conducting more interviews and they also executed a search warrant. Investigators are currently waiting on new evidence and they are also asking that anybody with information about LaToya's whereabouts to come forward.
