Details of Disappearance

Wright was last seen outside her home on Country Road in Vernon, Florida at 11:30 p.m. on July 22, 2007. She asked to borrow her mother's cellular phone. At approximately 2:00 or 3:00 a.m., a cousin who was spending the night at the house noticed Wright's bed was empty.

Between 2:00 and 3:00 a.m., Wright made several calls on her mother's phone; one conversation with a friend lasted twenty minutes. These phone calls were the last contact with her; she has never been heard from again.

There were some reported sightings of her after her disappearance. She has relatives in the Ozark, Alabama area, but there is no indication that she traveled there. She is a 2005 graduate of Vernon High School, and is described as an intelligent and responsible young adult.

Foul play is not suspected in her case, but it remains unsolved.
