    Details of Disappearance

    Lowder was last seen in Denton, Texas at 11:00 p.m. on May 22, 2013. She worked odd jobs to make money and she had gotten a job to clean a woman's house. Cecil Henry "C.J." Stubblefield, whom she'd met a few weeks before her disappearance, had arranged the job. The woman gave Lowder $100 to buy cleaning supplies and she was supposed to return the next day to clean. This woman was the last person to see her; she has never been heard from again. Her mother reported her missing on May 27.

    Lowder has a criminal record for multiple offenses dating back to 2004. She has four children, but Child Protective Services had taken them in 2012 because of neglect, and her mother had custody. Lowder was only allowed supervised visitation. She was living with Stubblefield in his rented home at the time of her disappearance; he told her she could stay with him, free of charge, until she straightened out her finances and could afford a place of her own. He stated he was unaware she had a drug problem. At the time of her disappearance, Lowder was trying to convince the landlord to evict Stubblefield; she had also stolen and pawned his ex-girlfriend's jewelry, and she planned to steal his pickup truck and sell it. She offered her brother drugs in exchange for his helping her forge Stubblefield's signature on the title.

    Lowder was driving Stubblefield's pickup truck at the time of her disappearance. She had borrowed it from him several days previously and hadn't returned it, and he thought she had stolen it. His ex-girlfriend helped him look for it, and found the truck abandoned behind the Smokehouse restaurant in the 1100 block of Fort Worth Drive, off U.S. Highway 377. Inside were multiple items Lowder had stolen from Stubblefield and other people, as well as her own prison identification card, her mother's laptop computer and a pack of cigarettes.

    Stubblefield's ex-girlfriend has an alibi for the time of Lowder's disappearance; Stubblefield himself cooperated with the investigation, took a polygraph and isn't considered a suspect. Lowder's brother agreed to take a polygraph, but he never did. Foul play is suspected in Lowder's case due to the circumstances involved.
