Some sleuths believe that Marilyn Dennis disappeared due to her frequent trips on public transportation, as suggested by a few agencies. The 43-year-old Oakland, Calif. woman was known to use public transportation to travel, but it’s unclear if that has anything to do with her missing person case. According to reports—which are minimal—Marilyn was last seen in Oakland on September 27, 2011.
Marilyn Dennis and her daughter were close and were said to be in constant contact with one another. It is uncharacteristic of Marilyn to not return her daughter’s calls or messages, but no one has seen or heard from Marilyn in over eight years (at the time of this publication). Like many of the other cases on Our Black Girls, the specific circumstances surrounding Marilyn’s missing person case are unknown, including what she was doing or who she may have been with when she vanished. The status of her personal life is also unclear.
At the time of her disappearance, Marilyn was described as being 5 feet 8 inches tall and 250 pounds. She had black/dark brown hair and brown eyes. The Charley Project reports that she was last wearing a white t-shirt, blue jeans, and white shoes.” Any other distinguishable physical characteristics are unknown.
Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the Oakland Police Department at (510) 238-3641 or their local authorities.
