Details of Disappearance
Ivory was last seen at her home at the A Building of Washington Courts in Utica, New York at 4:00 p.m. on March 6, 2004. She called her mother later that night to say she was coming home for dinner, but she never made it. Ivory has never been heard from again. She was going through a rebellious period at the time of her disappearance and was classified as a runaway for several years. Two months after Ivory disappeared, Plummer Reed Jr., a distant relative of hers, called her mother and said he was going to tell her what had happened to Ivory. Before he could do so, however, he was shot three times in the head and the call disconnected. Plummer survived his injuries. His cousin, Benji D. Reed, was later sent to prison for the attempted murder. Another man, Marques Williams, was also charged with attempted murder but ultimately pleaded guilty to misdemeanor fourth-degree criminal facilitation and was sentenced to time served. Williams admitted to supplying Benji with the gun. Since the shooting incident, Plummer has denied knowing anything about Ivory's disappearance. Ivory may still be in upstate New York, possibly in Watertown, Syracuse or Auburn. She could also be in the Tryon, New York area. Her mother says it is uncharacteristic of her to be out of touch with her loved ones. In 2007, authorities announced they believed she had been murdered. Ivory associated with a number of drug dealers in the Utica area, although she didn't herself sell drugs. It's theorized she willingly accompanied one of these people somewhere and that person harmed her. Investigators believe they know what happened to her and they think they've already spoken to several people who know her whereabouts. Several of these individuals are currently incarcerated. Her case remains unsolved.
