Since 2018, no one has seen or heard from Marsha Lonix. Just two months before her 56th birthday, KNOE News shared a report that listed people who had been recently arrested in central Louisiana, including Marsha. She’d reportedly been picked up for aggravated robbery, but no other information regarding the arrest was shared. Mysteriously, approximately 10 days later (according to one outlet) would be the last time anyone would have contact with the missing woman.

Now, the exact date that Marsha Lonix went missing is up for debate. New outlets state that she was last seen on October 19, 2018, while NamUs (National Missing & Unidentified Persons System) reports that Marsha vanished on August 30, just a week and a half after her arrest. Her family reported her missing, but it’s unclear how much time had passed since they last saw or spoke with her before contacting the police.

It is noted that Marsha frequents the downtown Alexandria and Bolton Avenue areas. Why that is hasn’t bee shared, nor has her occupation, personal relationship history, or if she’s ever gone missing prior to this case.

At the time of her disappearance, Marsha Lonix stood 5 feet 5 inches tall and 160 pounds. She had black/dark brown hair and brown eyes. Marsha was last seen wearing a white t-shirt and gray sweatpants. Any other physical characteristics including piercings, tattoos, or birthmarks haven’t been shared with the public and are unknown.

Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the Detective Division of the Alexandria Police Department at 318-441-6416, the Communications Center after hours at 449-5099, or their local authorities.
