    Details of Disappearance

    Tineshia was last seen at her 19-year-old boyfriend's residence in the 1900 block of Hawaii in West Covina, California on March 2, 1998 at approximately 9:00 p.m. She has never been heard from again. Tinesha's boyfriend became despondent after her disappearance and reportedly told a friend he had killed her. He committed suicide on March 5, three days after Tineshia's disappearance. Authorities were never able to verify his alleged admission.

    Tineshia has a history of leaving her home for several days at a time, but she was normally located with a friend shortly afterwards. Foul play is suspected in her disappearance.
