    Details of Disappearance

    Moore was last seen in Amarillo, Texas on December 2, 2016. She has never been heard from again. She was driving a dark blue 2012 Cadillac STS at the time of her disappearance; a photo of it is posted below this case summary. The Cadillac was found abandoned in the parking lot of a Toys R Us store on Soncy Road on January 6, 2017; it appeared to have been there for some time.

    Foul play is suspected in Moore's disappearance; investigators believe she was the victim of a homicide. Billy Glenn Ivy Jr. is the prime suspect in her case. A photo of Ivy is posted below this case summary. He was imprisoned after her disappearance an unrelated weapons charge. In November 2017, he and several other people were charged in connection with an arson and murder-for-hire plot. Ivy was charged with solicitation of capital murder for remuneration, conspiracy to commit capital murder for remuneration, arson, and arson intending to damage a habitat/place of worship. He had tried to orchestrate a plot to murder a friend of his and burn his home and semi truck.

    Moore and Ivy knew each other, and on December 2, she had told other she was going to make a trip with "Billy" to pick up drugs. She said she was "afraid" to go on the trip and wanted someone else to go with her. Cellular phone records show that Moore and Ivy's phones met near Soncy Road and Interstate 40 that night, then headed west on Interstate 40. Moore's phone last pinged off a phone tower near Ivy's ranch in rural Oldham County, Texas on December 2. It was turned off after that and hasn't been used since.

    Authorities initially thought Moore was in New Mexico, but they now believe she only made it as far as Adrian, Texas. She left behind a teenage son. No one has been charged in connection with her disappearance; it remains unsolved.
