Details of Disappearance

Hendricks was last seen in Wilson, North Carolina on December 5, 2002. She left her apartment at Woodard's Motel that day and got a ride to the Trade Mart No. 11, a convenience store at Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard and Ward Boulevard. She was last seen in the 100 block of Tuskegee Street, near the convenience store, at 8:00 p.m. She has never been heard from again. Her mother reported her missing on December 13.

Wilson has relatives in Elm City and Rocky Mount, North Carolina. Although she had an "unstable" life and it wasn't uncharacteristic of her to drop out of sight, she always maintained contact with her family. The person who gave her a ride to the store the day she vanished has been interviewed and isn't considered a suspect in her disappearance. Her case remains unsolved.
