Details of Disappearance
Lancaster was last seen in Wheelersburg, Ohio on April 3, 2013. She was supposed to run errands and then return to her parents' house that night, but she never arrived there. She has never been heard from again. Two days after her disappearance, her car was found abandoned at a Rally's fast food restaurant in Portsmouth, Ohio, with her wallet on the passenger seat.
Prior to her disappearance, Lancaster had become addicted to drugs, and sometimes supported her habit with prostitution. She left behind a seven-year-old son who was in the care of his grandmother; Lancaster's family stated that in spite of her addiction problem, she adored her son and was in daily contact with her relatives prior to her disappearance.
Her disappearance may be connected to the disappearances of Jayme Bowen, Holly Logan, Wanda Lemons and Charlotte Trego, and the deaths of Tameka Lynch and Tiffany Sayre. Some of the women had places and people in common, and all were involved with drugs.
There's speculation that a serial killer could be behind the disappearances and deaths, but no suspects have been named in any of the cases. They remain unsolved.
Portsmouth police are investigating Lancaster's disappearance.
