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.

That day, it’s reported that the 19-year-old wasn’t feeling well so she decided to leave work early to make an appointment at the student health center located at the University of Texas. Debra was last seen leaving her place of employment and was said to be on her way to the doctor’s office, however, she never arrived at her destination.
