Details of Disappearance

A police officer saw and spoke to Cooksey at the Corner Shop Store on Cherokee Street in Blacksburg, South Carolina on the evening on June 10, 2018. She was seen at several other locations throughout the night.

In the early morning hours of June 11, a male friend picked her up at or near a residence on Highway 29 north near Grover, South Carolina, and drove her to the Gaffney Inn in Gaffney, South Carolina. Her cellular phone pinged in that area and she was active on text messaging until 9:32 a.m., after which either the phone was turned off or the battery died.

Cooksey has never been heard from again. She lived with her mother in Fallston, North Carolina at the time of her disappearance. She left behind two children, and her family stated it's uncharacteristic of her to not be in touch with them. Her case remains unsolved.
