    Details of Disappearance

    Gaskins and her boyfriend, Ervin Braxton Williams, left Gaskins's hometown of Chocowinty, North Carolina on the day after Christmas in 2006. The last time her mother heard from her was when she called her mother from Texas on January 15. In March a friend of Gaskins's from Chocowinty, Virginia Wood, traveled to Texas to visit the pair for spring break. Wood called a friend from Texas on March 10 and said she and Gaskins were going to go to Cancun in Mexico. Her black 2003 Nissan Sentra with the North Carolina license plate number TTZ-6801 disappeared with her and hasn't been recovered. Gaskins, Wood and Williams have never been heard from again.

    A photograph and vital statistics for Williams are posted below this case summary. Both he and Gaskins are wanted by the police. Gaskins is wanted for probation violation; she was on misdemeanor probation for drug possession in North Carolina and violated it by leaving the state. Williams is wanted for failure to appear in court to answer to charges of arson, burglary, cocaine and marijuana possession, and assault. Williams reportedly planned to go to Mexico to escape prosecution. For years, law enforcement considered Gaskins a fugitive and refused to accept a missing persons report for her. A report was finally filed in 2015. Her family and Wood's are concerned for the women's safety. Their cases remain unsolved.
