Details of Disappearance

Garrard was last seen in the vicinity of Roden Avenue and U.S. Highway 431 in Boaz, Alabama at 9:00 a.m. on August 14, 1998.

She was with a male friend in a white pickup truck at the time; she had spent the previous night at his house. Her friend says he dropped her off at her aunt's house, but none of her relatives saw her there.

Garrard was divorced in 1998 and has two children. She is described as a "free spirit." She frequently stayed with friends and relatives, but she kept in touch with her parents and always made sure her children were cared for. After her parents didn't hear from her for a week, they reported her as a missing person.

Garrard's family members received information that she may have been a homicide victim, but her body has never been located. Her case remains unsolved.
