Details of Disappearance

Ciara disappeared from Inkster, Michigan on August 7, 2015. She was a frequent runaway, and authorities believe she left of her own accord. She exchanged text messages with her mother; her mother told her to come home, and Ciara agreed and said she was ready to return. She never came home, however, and she has never been heard from again.

There has been no sign of Ciara since August 2015; she hasn't even used any of her social media accounts. Her case remains classified as a runaway, but her mother fears she came to harm.
