    Details of Disappearance

    Hamilton was last seen near her home in the Jenkins Road area of U.S. Highway 17 near Gardens Corner in Yemassee, South Carolina on November 9, 1995. She has never been heard from again. There were no signs of struggle discovered at her residence and she did not leave the area in her car. Her family did not report her missing for several days after she went missing.

    Hamilton associated with narcotics traffickers at the time of her disappearance, and they believed she was informing law enforcement of their activities. She was not. Investigators believe she came to harm after her disappearance. Her bank account has not been used and none of her prescriptions have been refilled since November 1995. Her case remains unsolved.
