Details of Disappearance

Hunt was last seen behind Ray's Boudin, a business on Hirsch Alley in Opelousas, Louisiana, between 11:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. on July 4, 2016. She has never been heard from again.

Hunt attended an Independence Day celebration with her family the day before her disappearance. She was acting normally at the time and told her loved ones about her plans to apply for a place in public housing and celebrate her upcoming 21st birthday in a nightclub.

Her sister and brother-in-law saw her the day she went missing, when she visited their home and asked to borrow some money for cigarettes. They don't know whether she left on foot or if someone picked her up in a car.

Because Hunt smoked marijuana, her mother theorizes drugs may have been a factor in her disappearance. She left behind a two-year-old daughter and it would be uncharacteristic of her to abandon the child. Her case remains unsolved.
