Details of Disappearance

Alao was last seen in the 3800 block of Leeds Avenue in North Charleston, South Carolina on February 9, 2020. She has never been heard from again.

Her family, who lives out of state, hasn't heard from her since January 2020, which is extremely uncharacteristic of her behavior. Her case remains unsolved.
