A quick trip to the store became a Michigan family’s nightmare back in 2009. On November 20 of that year, 56-year-old Carlita Yvette Gentry Lohmeier was at her Detroit home with her mother. Carlita needed to get some items from her local store on Hubbell and Fenkell, so she told her mother that she would be back within a few minutes. However, Carlita was never seen or heard from again.
There are very few details made public in her case, but it is known that she was a widow with three children. Some reports state that she left her identification behind, an indication that she didn’t intend to be away for long.
At the time of her disappearance, Carlita was 5 foot 4 inches and weighed 107 pounds. She was wearing a short jacket, blue jeans, and red medium-length crocodile boots. She has gray hair, brown eyes, and a small scar in the center of her forehead. Her right earlobe is split from where an earring was pulled out. She liked wearing hairpieces and dark-colored wigs. She was also known for using the last name “Patterson.”
Also, eight years after Carlita Yvette Gentry Lohmeier went missing, her cousin, Mia Patterson, disappeared from Detroit in 2017. Mia, too, has never been located. Investigators don’t believe that the two cases are related.
Anyone with information regarding Carlita’s missing person case is urged to contact the Detroit Police Department at 313-596-5240 or their local authorities. Please share this story to continue the conversation about Carlita’s disappearance.

Her remains were located in December 2020 but only recently identified. Her death was ruled as a homicide.
Eighteen years after she was first reported missing, the remains of Tyesha Bell have been located. I shared Tyesha’s story back in June 2020, explaining that in May 2003, Tyesha was living with her sister when she went outside of their Aurora, Illinois home to take a phone call and never returned. Initially, there weren’t panicked concerns but when none of the 22-year-old’s loved ones could get into contact with her throughout the day, Tyesha’s family contacted the authorities. (more…)
