Details of Disappearance Martin last spoke to her mother at approximately 8:40 p.m. on May 27, 2005 from Hattiesburg, Mississippi.
Her roommate stated Martin left their residence at Robinson Place Apartments on Robinson Place to take a walk and never returned. The roommate said Martin was behaving normally prior to her disappearance. She had purchased a bus ticket on May 24 to visit her mother in Denver, Colorado, but she never boarded the bus when it left a week later. She has never been heard from again.
Martin had lived with her father in Slidell, Louisiana for several years during her adolescence and attended Slidell High School. She moved to Mississippi in 2003, midway through her junior year of high school, and graduated from Petal High School. She had been a student at Pearl River Community College, but took a semester off to help her mother, who was ill.
Authorities believe Martin may have left of her own accord, but her loved ones stated it is uncharacteristic of her not to contact them; they fear she is in danger. Her mother has since died, but her father is still alive. Her case remains unsolved.
