She hitchhiked frequently.

Some believe that Fannette Pinkston may have met with a nefarious character somewhere during her travels. Details about the circumstances surrounding Fannette’s missing person case are few, but I’ve included what has been shared about the 33-year-old’s disappearance.

It was sometime during the winter holiday season at the end of 1983 to the beginning of 1984 when Fannette Pinkston was last seen by her relatives in Detroit, Michigan. It’s unclear if she as a resident of the Motor City or if she was living in Ohio, where she graduated from Withrow High School in 1969. Fannette then went to study English at Howard University in Washington, D.C.

Multiple agencies state that according to the relatives of Fannette Pinkston, she was known to hitchhike and did so frequently. It’s suggested that she may have attempted to hitchhike back to Cincinnati, Ohio, or some other city in the Buckeye State. Fannette has never been seen or heard from again and there isn’t much information made available in her case.

At the time of her disappearance, Fannette Pinkston was reportedly 5 feet to 5 feet 7 inches tall and weighed 130 to 150 pounds. She had black/dark brown and brown eyes. Fannette has a mole on the inner area of one of her arms and a gap in the middle of her upper row of teeth. She would be 69-years-old at the time of this publication.

Anyone with information regarding this case is urged to contact the Detroit Police Department at (313) 596-1800 or their local authorities.
