Home » Devine Tollett, 18: Disappeared From Houston In 2018
For a case that is only a few years old, it has been difficult to pinpoint the exact date when Devine Tollett was last seen. This case was brought to my attention by a supporter of OBG who believes that this 18-year-old young lady deserves more attention, but the search for information about Devine hasn’t been an easy feat.
Most databases list Devine Tollett as going missing on April 1, 2018, yet there are spaces on the internet that claim her family last had contact with her on April 12. Additionally, her Twitter account shows that someone reposted a tweet from a friend of Devine’s on April 6. That retweet didn’t contain any other information or captions, so it is unclear if it was published by Devine or someone else.
Over the years, Devine’s friends and loved ones have continued to raise awareness about her missing person case, and while there have been bursts of reshares and comments on social media posts, news reports remain scarce. There has not been anything shared about Devine’s personal affairs or relationships, and what can be found in public records is the basic information about her missing date and physical attributes.
In November 2019, someone claiming to be her friend shared on social media that they tried to contact a person who allegedly was the last to have contact with Devine.
“My friend has been missing April 2018. Her name is Devine Tollett she is 19 years of age!” the friend wrote. “Last seen in Houston, Texas and last in contact with @wf_munchie on Instagram!!! When I asked him about her he blocked me! We jus want her home safe if anyone knows something, SAY SOMETHING!”
The Instagram account the friend referenced is no longer available, so it may have been deleted, or the person responsible for the account has changed the screen name. Devine’s Instagram account is still accessible. However, it has been set to private.
At the time of her disappearance, Devine Tollett stood 5 feet 1 inch tall and weighed 130 pounds. She had black/dark brown hair and brown eyes. Any other distinguishing marks are unknown, as are the clothes she was last seen wearing. Her middle name is “Rolynn.” She would be 21 years old at the time of this publication.
Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the Houston Police Department at (832) 394-1872 (case number 448322-18), the Missing Persons Clearinghouse at (512) 424-5074, or their helpline at (800) 346-3243 (case number M2010001), or their local authorities.
