Details of Disappearance

Howard visited the Fox's Lair Bar and the Daily News Pub between Plum Street and Cedar Street on Highway 301 in Jesup, Georgia with her friends during the evening hours of November 30, 2001. Both establishments are located along southbound Highway 301.

Howard parted company with her friends and walked away from the Daily News Pub at 9:00 p.m. This is the last confirmed sighting of her, although a truck driver and his wife claimed they had picked her up and given her a ride to Florida.

Howard's family members told authorities that she did not take any personal belongings at the time. Her relatives said it was uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning. She may have traveled to the Daytona Beach, Florida area after her disappearance. Her case remains unsolved.
