Details of Disappearance

Bowen was last seen in the area of Parsons and Stewart Avenues in Columbus, Ohio on April 10, 2014. She was walking from her sister's home to her parents' residence a few blocks away. She has never been heard from again.

Bowen's family stated they didn't believe she would have left without telling them; they fear she was a victim of human trafficking. She left behind two children.

Her disappearance may be connected to the disappearances of Megan LancasterHolly Logan, Wanda Lemons and Charlotte Trego, and the deaths of Tameka Lynch and Tiffany Sayre. Some of the women had places and people in common, and all were involved with drugs.

There's speculation that a serial killer could be behind the disappearances and deaths, but no suspects have been named in any of the cases. They remain unsolved.
