Home » Felicia Cochran Disappeared After A Trip To The Salon In 1992
She was only supposed to be gone for a short time, as Felicia Cochran told her relatives that had a hair appointment at the salon. It was on July 1, 1992, in Pell City, Alabama when Felicia asked her 10-year-old daughter if she’d like to accompany her while Felicia went to a stylist. Felicia’s daughter declined the offer so the 26-year-old got into her gray 1987 Nissan Sentra around 6:00 p.m. and drove away. It was the last time anyone saw or heard from Felicia Cochran.
It’s reported that Felicia looked as if she was driving in the direction of Birmingham, Alabama, and while she reportedly made it to her destination, it’s unclear what happened after Felicia left the salon. Just twelve hours after she was last seen, the mother of three’s vehicle was located in Talladega County, Alabama on a remote road. It had been abandoned and burned.
“Had I known that would be the last time I would see you my answer would have been unquestionably ‘YES!'” Brandi Nicole Martin wrote in a letter to her mother that she shared with NewsOne back in 2012. “That beauty salon was the last place you were seen. Twenty years ago today (2012), your mother had you declared legally missing. You were only 26 years old.” Brandi added, “I wish I could ask you about your childhood, your college days, or what falling in love was like for you. I wish I could tell you thank you for the sacrifices you made for me and being a great example of what a Mother is.”
“What was your final day like? What were your last words and how were you taken from us?” Brandi asked in her letter. “But more importantly, where are your remains so that you can be properly laid to rest and there is finally closure and we are all finally at peace. Regardless if that day ever comes, you will ALWAYS be at the forefront of my mind and deeply rooted in my heart and I will live each and every day in an attempt to make you more proud of me than you were the day before. I love you and look forward to the day we are in each other’s presence again.”
At the time of her disappearance, Felicia Cochran stood 5 feet 3 inches tall and weighed 135 pounds. She had black/dark brown hair and brown eyes. Both of her ears were pierced and she may wear eyeglasses. Felicia was estranged from her husband when she went missing. She would be 55-years-old at the time of this publication.
Anyone with information regarding this case is urged to contact the Pell City Police Department at (205) 884-3334 or their local authorities. Her agency case number is 920600037.
