Details of Disappearance

Dupont was last seen at her sister's residence in Lake Charles, Louisiana on September 8, 2004. She asked her sister to baby-sit her child, then walked to the corner of Bank and Broad Streets to catch a bus to the Housing Authority. She never arrived there and has never been heard from again.

Dupont left two children behind when she disappeared. She had very little money at the time of her disappearance. She is described as a bold but responsible person and authorities do not believe she left of her own accord. Her case remains unsolved.
