Details of Disappearance

Annis was last seen near Clear Creek Road in Crestview, Florida on July 12, 2020. She was homeless at the time of her disappearance, but kept in close touch with family, talking to her mother on the phone almost every day.

On the day of her disappearance, Annis called her mother and said she didn't like the people she was staying with, because "something shady is going on" and she did not feel safe. Her mother suggested she call back in the morning and they'd decide what to do about the situation.

Annis has never been heard from again, and she left behind the backpack of clothes she normally carried with her everywhere. She left behind three children. Her mother stated in spite of her mental health issue and her substance abuse history, it's not like her to drop out of sight without warning.

Her case remains unsolved.
