    Details of Disappearance

    Barrett resided in the Orange Park Acres area of Orange County, California. She was last seen on April 11, 2002. Barrett has never been heard from again. She missed several appointments with real estate salespeople and failed to report to her classes by the time her disappearance was reported to authorities.

    Barrett's family members said it is uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning. She was an A student at Rancho Santiago College in Santa Ana, California. Investigators believe foul play may have been involved in Barrett's case. Orange County and Santa Ana authorities are handling the investigation. Some agencies may list April 12, 2002 as the date of her disappearance.
