Details of Disappearance

Adkins was last seen in Leeds, Alabama on November 13, 2008. She lived with her boyfriend on Highway 41. She has never been heard from again. She wasn't reported missing until January 2009. Although she had a drug problem, she was close to her family; she spoke to them on the phone on a weekly basis and saw them at least once a month.

When authorities spoke to Adkins's boyfriend, he said she'd moved out of their apartment and he thought she was in Houston, Texas with a man she was talking to over Facebook. Police spoke to the man in Houston, but he said he hadn't seen Adkins in years.

Adkins has a warrant out for her arrest, issued in January 2009. She pleaded guilty to theft and drug possession in 2008 and was given a conditional suspended sentence, and is wanted for failing to comply with the terms. Foul play is suspected in her disappearance, however. Her case remains unsolved.
