Home » Jasmine Calloway Host, 29: Vanished The Day Before She Was Scheduled To Move In 2017
This is a case that is shrouded in speculation. After looking into the disappearance of Jasmine Calloway Host, I was left with more questions than answers, but what cannot be disputed is that the 29-year-old vanished from Gadsen, Alabama on September 15, 2017. Reports state that Jasmine lived in a home with her husband, Mark Host; a roommate, Rachel Sears, and several small children. It is unclear who the children belonged to, but it was reported that Jasmine and Mark were involved in a marriage that was described as “volatile.”
The month that Jasmine went missing, it was stated that her household was packing up to move over four hours away from Alabama to Dawson Springs, Kentucky. This is where reports are conflicting: some say that Jasmine wanted to stay behind while others claim she was scheduled to move but disappeared the day before they were all set to go. According to at least one report, Sears told authorities that nothing seemed out of the ordinary when they awoke in the morning of September 16 to leave for Kentucky, but upon inspection, Jasmine Calloway Host was nowhere to be found and has never been seen or heard from again. The National Missing and Unidentified Persons System penned that Host and Sears claimed Jasmine “stayed behind,” but it is not known if there was a suggestion that the missing woman left of her own accord. However, I could not find any information to support the claim that Jasmine Calloway Host walked away from her life. She is classified here on OBG as an endangered missing person.
The extent of the investigation into Jasmine’s case is unknown. There hasn’t been anything publicly shared about her last known movements at home and what happened to Mark Host, Rachel Sears, or the children living at the residence is also a mystery. Host and Sears have not been publicly named as suspects or persons of interest. Additionally, information about Jasmine, including her social relationships or work life, hasn’t been shared. It has been reported that Crime Stoppers has offered a $5,000 reward to anyone with information leading to information regarding Jasmine’s whereabouts.
At the time of her disappearance, Jasmine Calloway Host stood 5 feet 6 inches tall and weighed 145 to 155 pounds. She had black/dark brown hair and brown eyes. At one point she had a shaved head and was wearing a wig with long black hair. Any distinguishing marks or scars have not been shared. Her middle name is “Amorette-Nicole.” Jasmine would be 33-years-old at the time of this publication.
Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the Gadsden Police Department at (256) 549-4500, Crime Stoppers tip line at 215-STOP (7867), or their local authorities. The agency case number is 19004942.
