    Details of Disappearance

    Lemons was last seen in Chillicothe, Ohio on November 3, 2014; her last communications with her family were messages to her adult daughter via text and Facebook. A friend stated he saw Lemons on the day of her disappearance and that he heard she'd gone to Texas with an African-American male truck driver named Darius or Demarcus Thomas. She frequents the Galveston, Texas area. Lemons has never been heard from again. Although she's been known to be out of touch with her family, it's uncharacteristic of her to not call or visit them over the holidays.

    Trego's disappearance may be connected to the disappearance of Charlotte Trego and the deaths of Tameka Lynch and Tiffany Sayre. All four women were involved with drugs and they all disappeared from Chillicothe in the same one-year period. Trego and Lynch, who were friends, went missing on the same day: May 3, 2014. Lynch's body was found in Paint Creek three weeks after her disappearance; the autopsy determined she'd died of multiple drug overdoses and the manner of death was undetermined. Lemons disappeared six months later, and on May 11, 2015, Sayre disappeared. Her body was found in a creek on June 19; she'd been murdered. There's speculation that a serial killer could be behind the disappearances and deaths, but no suspects have been named in any of the cases. They remain unsolved.
