Details of Disappearance

Redhair was last seen when her mother, Anita King, dropped her off at her boyfriend's house in the 1000 block of Clements Street southwest in Albuquerque, New Mexico on March 27, 2020.

Recently, Redhair had told her mother that her boyfriend, Nicholas Kaye, was drinking to excess and had been physically violent towards her. King was concerned and and tried to get her to come home, but Redhair refused and said everything would be okay. She has never been heard from again.

Three days later, when King texted Redhair to ask how she was, Redhair didnn't respond, which is uncharacteristic of her behaavior. A few days after that, King texted Redhair again, and got a reply from a man who said someone else, not Redhair, had sold him her phone. Her mother decided to file a missing persons report at this time. Redhair has never been heard from again.

Kaye stated he and Redhair went out for a drink on the night of her disappearance, then argued, and Redhair walked out. The next day, he said, he got a text from her phone saying she was with another man. He presumed the man was a person they'd met the night before.

No one has been named as a suspect in Redhair's disappearance and the circumstances are unclear. Her case remains unsolved.
