The missing cases with very little information are some of the most distressing. A family in Mississippi (and beyond) are still searching for answers 12 years after 21-year-old Merkedes Jordan disappeared without a trace. The young woman left behind a baby son who has grown up not knowing what happened to his mother. He, along with the rest of Merkedes’s loved ones, deserve answers.

The last sighting of Merkedes was on November 7, 2006. She was seen talking with at least one man, described as a black male, near a black car that was inside of her apartment complex. After that, Merkedes was never heard from again.

Her family believes that she was taken against her will.

There is a Facebook Page dedicated to Merkedes, hoping that her case will be shared and there is someone, somewhere, who can shed light on this mysterious situation. There are only to posts on the page, the last of which was written in 2016.

“10 years!!!!! It would really be helpful and and a move of God for someone to come forth with any information about her missing or to reveal what they KNOW about her dissapearance.. God knows all and it is just a matter of time before he reveals his hand! Ready to help? Raise your hand! We need it! She needs it!”

Merkedes was last seen wearing a white shirt with blue jeans or pink and white striped sweatpants. She also had on a pink jacket and house shoes/slippers. She has large dimples, a scar on her cheek, and an overbite. She stands 5’5″ and 185 pounds with brown eyes. Her hair is black and shoulder length, but she often wore it in a ponytail. Her age as of publication is 33-years-old.

There is no other available information released in her case.

Anyone who has information regarding the disappearance of Merkedes Jordan is urged to contact the Meridian Police Department at 601-485-1843.
