Details of Disappearance

Wallace was last seen in the vicinity of west Chewalla Creek Drive in Eufaula, Alabama on October 27, 2012. Her husband stated they had an argument and at 1:00 p.m. he took their daughter to his mother's house, and while they were gone, Wallace packed a bag and left on foot. She never arrived at work that day and has never been heard from again. Her mother reported her missing.

Wallace and her husband had filed for divorce just days before she went missing. Her loved ones believe she met with foul play, as they don't think she would have abandoned her daughter. Her case remains unsolved.
