Phyllis Gilliam

It’s time to shed light on another missing person case with very few details. In 1971, Phyllis Gilliam was just 11-years-old. She was reportedly at her grandmother’s apartment in Columbia, South Carolina when, on August 16, she told her loved ones that she was walking to a laundromat on Read Street. It’s unclear what occurred during her journey, but little Phyllis Gilliam was never seen or heard from again.

Whether or not Phyllis ever reached her destination remains a mystery, as do other details. Were there witnesses who saw her during her trip or did she stop and speak to anyone? How far away was the laundromat from her grandmother’s home? And had Phyllis made that walk alone before?

At the time of her disappearance, Phyllis was described as being 4 feet tall and 65 pounds. She had black/dark brown hair and brown eyes. Her report didn’t list any other physical characteristics or details regarding the clothing she was last wearing when she went missing. Phyllis would be 60-years-old at the time of this publication.

Anyone with information regarding the disappearance of Phyllis is urged to contact the Columbia Police Department at  1-888-CRIME-SC or their local authorities.

Please share this story about 11-year-old Phyllis Gilliam to reignite the investigation into her missing person case. She is our sister and her life matters.

Marialice Clark Missing

Five years ago, Ed Clark launched a Change.org petition in the hopes of attracting the attention of former President Barack Obama. Back in 1970, when Ed was 15-years-old, his 12-year-old sister Marialice Clark was named in a government affidavit as an informant against the National Committee to Combat Fascism (NCCF), a group he describes as “an off-shoot of the Black Panther Party.” Two years later, at just 14-years-old, Marialice would go missing, never to be heard from again. Ed penned a lengthy tale about his family and he hoped that President Obama would approve of a relaunching of an investigation into Marialice’s case. It doesn’t seem that Ed Clark’s dreams have been fulfilled just yet. (more…)
