Details of Disappearance

Tucker was last seen on February 1, 2011. She had gone to Chicago, Illinois to get her tax refund; she collected it at approximately 2:00 p.m. and made a phone call and asked someone to pick her up. She never returned home and has never been heard from again.

Tucker left behind three children; her mother describes her as a devoted parent who wouldn't have abandoned them. She was having problems with an ex-boyfriend and had moved to East Chicago to get away from him, but he isn't considered a suspect in her disappearance.

It's uncharacteristic of Tucker to leave without warning, and she never cashed her tax refund check. Her case remains unsolved.
