Home » Roberta Mitchell, 31: Mentally Disabled Woman Vanishes In 2000
It’s surprising that a 31-year-old mentally disabled woman can go missing from a major city and still receive little to no coverage. It was back in 2000 when Roberta Mitchell disappeared, and while authorities may have actively investigated Roberta’s case 21 years ago, there doesn’t seem to be any new movement in recent years.
According to reports, Roberta Mitchell lived in Camden, New Jersey in a home that she shared with her father. The residence was said to be on the 2000 black of Arlington Street and on September 2, 2000, Roberta was reportedly home sleeping when her father left to go to work. What happened after that remains a mystery because, since that time, no one has seen or heard from Roberta again.
The Charley Project reported that Roberta regularly visited a shopping area in Camden located in the 2000 block of Mount Ephraim Avenue and would also patronize another area around 8th Street and Carl Miller Boulevard. Roberta is described as having the mental capacity of a 12-year-old, and because of such, she is naive and impressionable. It wouldn’t be difficult for someone to gain her trust.
At the time of her disappearance, Roberta Mitchell stood 5 feet 5 inches tall and weighed 140 pounds. She had black/dark brown hair and brown eyes. She walks with a limp because one of her legs is longer than the other. She would be 52-years-old at the time of this publication. Her middle name and other distinguishing characteristics haven’t been shared publicly. Very little is known about her case.
Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the Camden County Police Department at (856) 757-7440 or their local authorities. Her agency case number is 000904105.
