It was a typical Spring day when Shirley Anne Gladney walked out of her Okolona, Mississippi, home. She was making her way to the Electric Department to pay her electricity bill. Instead of driving, the 20-year-old decided to walk to the office since it wasn’t that far away.
Shirley has never been seen or heard from again.
Although April 9, 1999 was the last day anyone physically saw Shirley, the young woman wasn’t reported missing until three days later. Very few details have been made available in regards to Shirley’s disappearance, and there hasn’t been any news coverage in recent years, if ever.
At the time she went missing, Shirley was 5’7″ tall and 125 pounds. She has black hair, brown eyes, and both of her ears are pierced. It is unknown what she was wearing when she left her home.
Anyone with information about Shirley Anne Gladney’s disappearance is urged to contact the Chickasaw Police Department at 662-447-5781 or 662-456-3513.
