Details of Disappearance

Valentine was last seen in Paris, Arkansas on September 14, 2012. Her family got a text message from her on September 17, her thirty-fifth birthday; this is the last time they heard from her. That same day she was seen in a local grocery store.

She'd been arrested in June for residential burglary and theft, and was scheduled to appear in court on September 28, two weeks after she was last seen. After she missed her court date, a warrant was issued for her arrest for failure to appear.

However, her daughter stated she had never failed to appear in court before, and she doesn't believe Valentine would have disappeared entirely and not contacted her family for years just because of the charges. Her case remains unsolved.
