Details of Disappearance

Hembree was last seen in Smyer, Texas at 6:30 p.m. on February 26, 2013. She left in her red two-door 1999 Saturn with the New Mexico license plate number KJB142 to drive to a friend's house in Lubbock, Texas, but never arrived. The last time her cellular phone was used was a few hours after she was last seen. She has never been heard from again.

Three days later, authorities found Michael Todd Ramsey in possession of her car. Hembree had known Ramsey for a couple of months prior to her disappearance and he was the last person known to have been with her. A photo of him is posted with this case summary.

Ramsey is a person of interest in Hembree's disappearance. He has a prior criminal record, but not for violent offenses, and he was incarcerated on unrelated charges after she went missing.

It's uncharacteristic of Hembree to leave without warning. Her case remains unsolved.
