Details of Disappearance

Taylor was last seen at a gas station on Watt Avenue and Auburn Boulevard in Sacramento, California on May 7, 2017. She was supposed to meet a man to hang out in a charcoal-gray van. She has never been heard from again, and she hasn't used her phone or social media accounts since the date of her disappearance.

Taylor was involved with drugs and prostitution at the time of her disappearance, and the area where she was last seen is a noted hangout for sex workers. Although police can find no evidence that she was trafficked, her family believes she met with foul play.

It's possible that Taylor traveled to the Reno or Elko areas of Nevada, along Interstate 80, after her disappearance. She could also be in Utah. Her case remains unsolved.
