It was around noon on May 20, 2018, when a person was walking through their apartment complex and spotted Stephanie Ray Clemons in the laundry room. The two neighbors kept on about their personal businesses without interrupting one another. Little did they know, that would be the last time anyone could verify Stephanie’s whereabouts.
For the remainder of that day, Stephanie’s daughter, Earlene Ray, called and texted her mother but couldn’t get a response. Stephanie isn’t a woman who is prone to spontaneity or ignoring her family. She works as a medical assistant at the Jackson Memorial Hospital in Florida and is described as being a detailed person. She wasn’t known to be ill, mentally unstable, or even upset at the time of her disappearance. Her family reported her missing and the Miramar Police Department don’t believe that Stephanie left of her own accord.
The investigation shows that the 55-year-old’s bank and other personal accounts haven’t seen any movement. Stephanie’s car was found parked at her apartment complex in its usual spot, undisturbed and lacking any evidence of foul play. She never called in or returned to work. There is no indication that she went on a trip or vacation because none of her belongings were packed or missing. No one has heard from her.
“Any help, any minute information you might have about Stephanie would be definitely needed and appreciated,” said Miramar Detective Carlos Villalona.
“Help us, please,” said Earlene through tears. “I was just letting her know I love her, I still love her. I just want you to bring her home. Please help me find her.”
“She loves to be with her family, so it’s really weird that she’s not here,” Stephanie’s niece Tiffany Ray said. “We have no clue where she is.”
At the time of her disappearance, Stephanie was 5 feet 4 inches tall and approximately 135 to 145 pounds. She has brown eyes and black/dark brown hair that is styled in shoulder-length locs. She has a birthmark on the right side of her nose. It is unknown what clothing she was wearing the last time she was seen.
