Details of Disappearance

Goodie was last seen in Scott, Louisiana on March 9, 2022. She worked for the Lyft ride-share company and was driving on Interstate 10 to Texas to drop off a customer. Her phone last pinged at a cell tower near Iowa, Louisiana.

About twelve hours later, on March 10, her car, a black 2012 Audi Q5 with the license plate number NRN6551, was photographed by traffic cameras, heading north out of Dallas, Texas on Highway 75, in the direction of Louisiana.

A photo of the vehicle is posted with this case summary; it's unclear who was driving it. It was sighted north of Dallas again the next day. On April 4, authorities found the Audi in St. Joseph, Missouri. There was no sign of Goodie at the scene.

Authorities identified Brandon Jermaine Francisco as a person of interest in Goodie's disappearance. He was Goodie's customer, and she had given him rides before. A photo of him, and Goodie's car, is posted with this case summary.

He was arrested in St. Joseph on March 25, on an active warrant out of Louisiana that was unrelated to Goodie's case; he'd failed to show up at a March 9 hearing on attempted second-degree murder charges related to a 2018 shooting. In October 2022, Francisco pleaded guilty and was sentenced to 30 years in prison.

Investigators believe Goodie was the victim of a homicide, but no one has been charged in her case. She left behind two teenage children.
