For nearly three decades, the loved ones of Shanythia Mashelle Greene have attempted to retrace her last steps. August 26, 1993, was the last time anyone reportedly remembered seeing or hearing from Shanythia, and the puzzling events began at 5:00 a.m.
It was then that the 17-year-old left her home in Pompano Beach, Florida because she’d made plans with her boyfriend to take him to work. Yet, it’s unclear if they ever met up, but what is known is that Shanythia’s mother woke up at 8:00 a.m. and assumed her daughter was at home. Shanythia’s door was closed and the teen’s car was outside, so the mother went to work without a second thought.
Shanythia, a graduate of Ely High School, was scheduled to work at K-Mart that day, but she missed her shift. When Shanythia’s mother returned home from work at 10:00 p.m. that evening, the 17-year-old’s car was gone. Again, there wasn’t a need to worry because Shanythia’s mother assumed that her daughter was out somewhere with her boyfriend. However, around 3:00 a.m., the teen’s mother realized Shanythia wasn’t home and missed her 1:30 am. curfew. Her worried family made calls and attempted to locate her, but within hours they contacted authorities to file a missing person report. Shanythia had never left home before so this was out of character.
Investigators learned that Shanythia and her car may have been gone, but nothing else was missing. All of her clothes were still accounted for and when they took a look at her bank records, no money had been moved. Three days after she disappeared, Shanythia’s vehicle—a white 1992 Pontiac LeMans— was located at a Days Inn motel. It was locked and seemed to have been abandoned, but Shanythia’s personal items including her purse and a fake identification with the name “Toquerta C. Montgomery” were inside.
Police couldn’t find Shanythia, but they did receive information that she may have been seen speaking with an unidentified man at the motel. He was described as being a black man who drove an eighteen-wheeler truck that was fitted with a blue cab. The license plates were reportedly from the state of New Jersey.
Two years after she was reported missing, authorities received a call that Shanythia’s remains could be found at a Pompano Beach residence. The person told police that the teen’s body was buried in the yard. A search was completed but nothing was found.
At the time of her disappearance, Shanythia Mashelle Greene was 6 feet 2 inches tall and 200 pounds. She had black/dark brown hair and brown eyes. Shanythia has a distinctive gold front right tooth with the letter “G” on it and a white discoloration on her lower right leg. She may have been wearing white shorts and brown sandals when she was last seen. Shanythia may have gone by the names “Toquerta C. Montgomery” or “Nikki Greene.” She would be 44-years-old at the time of this publication. Age-enhanced photos have been included in this article.
Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the Pompano Beach Police Department at (954) 786–4200 or their local authorities.

Daphne Jones, 22, Was Pregnant When She Vanished From New Orleans In 1999
Her family reportedly believes she’s deceased, but they still want answers.
A young woman has been missing for over two decades and there doesn’t seem to be any movement on her case. It was just days after the New Year when Daphne Jones reportedly had enough. Reports state that the 22-year-old was a student at the University of New Orleans and moved out of the dormitory into an apartment off-campus. Daphne learned that she was pregnant, so she reportedly decided it was time to leave school, quit her part-time hostess job at Brennan’s Restaurant, and return home to Maryland to move back in with her mother. She vanished before that could happen. (more…)
