The Disappearance of Carlita Yvette Gentry Lohmeier


Carlita Yvette Gentry Lohmeier has been missing since November 20th, 2009. The 56-year-old lived in Detroit, Michigan at the time of her disappearance. On the day she vanished, Carlita was at her home with her mother. She needed to grab a few things from the store, so she left her house on foot to walk to a store on Hubbell and Fenkell. The store was located just two blocks from her home, and she told her mother that she would only be gone a few minutes. Unfortunately, Carlita never returned home and has never been seen or heard from again. 

There are very few details available about Carlita's case, but it is not believed that she is missing on her own accord. She reportedly left behind her identification and other personal items. Over a decade has passed without any answers about what happened to Carlita, and many questions remain unanswered.

Nearly 8 years later, another member of Carlita's family went missing. Her cousin, Mia Patterson, vanished at the age of 25 during May 2017.  Mia was last seen alive near the corner of Plymouth Road and Mendota Street in Detroit. Her remains were found a year later, and her murder remains unsolved. A write-up on Mia's case can be found here. 

It is not believed that Carlita's disappearance and Mia's murder are related, but both still remain unsolved. Their family members are hoping to one day see justice for both of them. If you have any information that could lead to Carlita's whereabouts, please call 1-800-SPEAK-UP.
