Details of Disappearance

Bankhead was last seen at the Life Center International Church in St. Louis, Missouri on May 28, 2016. He attended his great-grandmother's funeral at the church that day and was last seen getting into a car with some friends afterwards. The vehicle is described as a black four-door car with tinted windows and black rims. He has never been heard from again.

Bankhead's family believes foul play was involved in his disappearance. His mother got an anonymous phone call after her disappearance, saying he was being held captive in a closet in a vacant home in the Walnut Park neighborhood and was about to be murdered. His case remains unsolved.
