In August 2013, Whitney Nicole Sanders was robbed and beaten. She reported the incident to police, but a month passed and they hadn’t arrested any suspects involved with the violent incident. They were able to obtain phone records and DNA samples, both of which they believed would lead them to identify the person, or persons, involved, but those results didn’t return before Whitney went missing.

On September 20, 2013, Whitney was still healing from her assault when she went to a restaurant called Kelly’s Place on King’s Road in Jacksonville, Florida with a friend. It was around 1:30 a.m. when she told her friend that she had to make a quick run to the Exxon gas station across the street. The friend expected her to return in five to 10 minutes.

Whitney never came back.

The following morning, the friend checked their phone and saw that they received a missed call from Whitney at 5:00 a.m. That was the last contact that anyone has had with the 21-year-old woman. Investigators did look into Whitney’s involvement in prostitution and her history of solicitation-related arrests, but her friends and family insisted that no matter what, Whitney would have never disappeared without telling someone.

Whitney’s mother insisted that those involved with the robbery and assault against her daughter are also responsible for her disappearance.

At the time of her disappearance, Whitney was 5 feet 5 inches tall and 220 pounds. She had black/dark brown hair, brown eyes, and goes by the nicknames “Nicky” or “Buttercup.” She has multiple distinguishable tattoos including “Buttercup” across her chest, the letters “FSL” on her leg, and the name “Wanda” on her lower back.

Anyone with information regarding Whitney’s disappearance is urged to contact the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office at 904-630-0500 or their local authorities.

Mariah Edwards Missing (1)

Sadly, investigators believe that Mariah Edwards was murdered. It isn’t through speculation or some hypothetical reasoning; when they searched the home of a man named Sonny Pierce, they discovered a video that led them to the conclusion that the teenager’s life was taken. Agencies disagree as to Mariah’s age when she vanished from Blue Island, Illinois in July 2010, as some list her as 17 and others as 18. It is believed that Mariah is one of several women who were allegedly murdered by Pierce, but she is the only known victim who has yet to be found. (more…)
