Details of Disappearance

Smith was last seen her sister's high school graduation party at her family's home in the 600 block of Hamilton Avenue in Farrell, Pennsylvania on June 5, 2015. She lived Warren, Ohio at the time. She has never been heard from again. Smith's family reported her missing on June 29.

Smith disappeared about a month before eighteen-year-old Alesha Bell went missing from Warren. Her bone fragments were found in a fire pit on the property of James Elmer Brooks, a suspected drug trafficker who admitted he ran an escort service.

Smith's family stated she knew Brooks, and they think it's possible he was involved in her disappearance. A photo of Brooks is posted with this case summary. He was in jail on drug charges when Bell was identified. He has also been charged with abuse of a corpse, but not murder, although authorities believe Bell was the victim of a homicide.

It's uncharacteristic of Smith to be out of touch with her family for this long, and her loved ones believe she could have been the victim of human trafficking. Her case remains unsolved.
