Details of Disappearance

Curry was last seen leaving her brother's house near the 3600 block of Bancroft Drive in Virginia Beach, Virginia at approximately 9:30 p.m. on November 11, 2000. She said she was going to use a pay phone at a nearby Texaco station. She never returned and has never been heard from again.

Curry attended Green Run High School, but didn't graduate. She got into some trouble as a teenager and, after her disappearance, she was charged with drug possession.

Her baby daughter was in foster care and she was trying to get the child returned to her care. Curry's loved ones don't believe she left on her own, because she was focused on getting her daughter back.

Curry's family members are concerned for her well-being. They believe she may have suffered a seizure or some other sort of trauma, possibly resulting in loss of memory. She was reportedly a victim of mental and physical abuse prior to her disappearance. She may have traveled to the Miami, Florida area.

Curry's case remains unsolved. Some agencies state she disappeared on November 10, 2000.
