    Details of Disappearance

    Lakiesha was last seen at her residence on east Fannin Street in her hometown of Marshall, Texas on the morning August 13, 1999. She has never been heard from again. It's possible that Lakiesha left of her own accord. She was a habitual runaway in 1999, but never stayed gone for long and always returned home on her own. She often associated adult Hispanic male migrant workers. Lakiesha's mother planned to press charges against the men for providing her with drugs and alcohol and having sexual contact with her.

    Lakiesha may have been in the company of an adult Hispanic male after her 1999 disappearance. Her case remains unsolved.
