Details of Disappearance

Lambert was last seen at her residence off Route 7 (Windmill Hill Road) in Bluefield, West Virginia on July 26, 1992, her son's first birthday. She left the birthday party at 9:00 p.m. and has never been heard from again. All of her belongings were left behind at her home, including the clothing she was wearing when she was last seen, and her car was parked in the driveway.

Lambert had filed a domestic violence complaint a few weeks before she vanished. On July 10, sixteen days prior to vanishing, she called the police department and asked how to drop her petition. Her loved ones stated she had been choked/strangled on several occasions before her disappearance.

On January 14, 1993, five months after Lambert vanished, her boyfriend, Mark Anthony Cook, also disappeared. Authorities believe Cook's and Lambert's disappearances are connected and that foul play may have been involved in both cases. They stated that one male suspect failed a polygraph, but he has not been charged in due to lack of evidence.

Lambert was born in Williamson, West Virginia and has also lived in McDowell County, West Virginia. Her parents both died in the years following her disappearance, but her six siblings are still searching for her.

Both Lambert's and Cook's cases remain unsolved.
