It was not long after the Thanksgiving season in 2016 when family members of Laquadra Shavonne Slater last had contact with her on December 2 in Flint Township, Michigan. Soon after, Laquandra’s vehicle was found abandoned in the area near Atherton Road and Van Slyke Road. There hasn’t been any movement in Laquandra’s case since the time she disappeared.
“Somebody had to do something to her, take her somewhere,” said LaToya Brown, Laquandra’s cousin. “All I can say is just put themselves in our position, our situation. If it was your family, I don’t know what the situation was or what could have been the reason… if she’s still alive and OK, could they just let her go, just something.”
The holidays are a particularly difficult time as Laquandra is a family-oriented person who enjoyed spending time with her loved ones. For years, investigators haven’t received any new information about what may have happened to the 38-year-old, but someone, somewhere, has the key that detectives need. There is very little information made publicly available about Laquandra’s case.
At the time of her disappearance, Laquandra Shavonne Slater was 5 feet 4 inches tall and 180 10 200 pounds. She had black/dark brown hair, brown eyes, and multiple piercings including those located on her lip, eyebrow, and ears. She also has a number of tattoos: dolphins and fish from her foot up her body, a portrait of her mother on her upper arm, a sun on her arm, and other tattoos on her arms, legs, and neck. Laquandra Shavonne Slater goes by the nickname “Say V” and may use the last name “Kelly.”
Anyone with information regarding Laquandra’s case is urged to contact the Flint Township Police Department at 810-600-3250, Crime Stoppers of Flint & Genesee County by phone at 1-800-422-JAIL (5245) or at P3tips.com.
