Details of Disappearance Hall called her mother from her after-school job on Faucett Road in Pine Bluff, Arkansas at approximately 8:00 p.m. on May 9, 1994.
Hall was employed after school by Dr. Larry Amos, who ran a business that supported in-home day care centers. She did clerical work out of his home. Her family members normally gave her a ride home after her shift ended at 8:30 p.m. She told her mother she would call again after she clocked out for the evening.
Hall's mother fell asleep at their residence shortly after their conversation. She woke up at 1:00 a.m. and realized her daughter had never called. Her mother telephoned Dr. Amos and was told that Hall departed at approximately 8:30 p.m. when her ride arrived.
No one else had been scheduled to pick her up, however, and Hall told a co-worker she would be walking home, something she didn't ordinarily do.
In the morning, Hall's parents checked to see if she was with her boyfriend, but he said he hadn't seen her. They checked at her school and she hadn't attended her early morning band practice or showed up for class. She didn't have her purse, identification, extra clothes or any money when she vanished.
Hall's parents called the police at 9:00 p.m. on May 10, but because Hall was 18 years old and legally an adult, the police refused to accept a missing persons report for 24 hours. She has never been heard from again.
Authorities do not believe Hall left of her own accord. She got along well with her family, was ranked as the top student in her graduating high school class at Watson Chapel High School, and did not have a history of running away. In fact, she had never stayed out late without permission from her parents.
Hall was also excited and looking forward to giving the commencement address at her high school graduation ceremony, which took place two weeks after her disappearance. She had been accepted at Tennessee State University, where she planned to major in pre-medicine and eventually become a pediatrician.
Police searched Hall's boyfriend's car and home and found no clues as to Hall's whereabouts. The boyfriend took a polygraph and the results were inconclusive. Dr. Amos was questioned, but refused to take the polygraph test.
In March 2011, based on new information from two witnesses, the police executed a search warrant on the Amos residence and confiscated insulation and drywall. All of it tested negative for blood or any other evidence of a crime.
Hall was active in school and church activities, including her school and church choirs and the school band, at the time of her disappearance. She also enjoyed reading. Foul play is suspected in her case; investigators believe she was probably murdered by someone she knew and trusted. Her case remains unsolved.
