Parris Hopson Left Her Home On Foot & Disappeared On Christmas 2019

Police are following leads, but not much information has been shared.



On Christmas Day 2019, 26-year-old Parris Hopson reportedly went for a walk in her Massillon, Ohio neighborhood. She was last seen on foot walking down the street, but since that time, no one has seen or heard from Parris again.

*UPDATE 07/04/2020* Parris Hopson’s mother, Rochelle Arnold-Hopson, spoke with Dateline and said that her daughter left a family gathering to take a walk to “clear her head.’ She added, “She was just going to walk to a park that’s nearby. I texted her and told her not to worry about anything. Just get some fresh air. Just pray. But I never got a response. And when she didn’t return later that evening, that’s when I started to really worry… I know she needed some time away and that’s why she went for a walk,” Rochelle told Dateline. “But for her not to come back, to leave her stuff behind, it makes no sense. It makes me think something really bad happened to her.” 

Rochelle added that Parris Hopson didn’t take drugs nor did she have any mental health issues. Parris’s brother, Perry, had been the victim of a tragic car crash with another driver who fled the scene. Parris dedicated her life to figuring out what happened to her brother, and Rochelle said her daughter would never just walk away from her family.
