Details of Disappearance

Natasha was last seen in Beckley, West Virginia on August 8, 2000. She was abducted by her non-custodial mother, Susan Gail Carter. A felony warrant for kidnapping was issued for her on November 13, 2000.

A photograph and an age-progressed image of Susan is posted with this case summary. Her date of birth is March 8, 1959, making her 41 years old at the time of Natasha's abduction. She's described as Caucasian, 5'6 and 115 pounds, with blonde hair and green eyes. Susan may use the name Susan Gail Carter Webb. She may attempt to alter her appearance.

Susan had been involved in a contentious battle over Natasha's custody with the child's father, Ricky Lafferty, and had told Lafferty he would never see his daughter again. Natasha's grandmother stated the child was afraid of her mother and did not want to live with her.

Susan and Natasha may be in the company of an adult male. They may have left West Virginia. Natasha's case remains unsolved.
