Home » Shrita Watson, 38: Mother & Son Go Missing From Louisiana In 2020
It looks as if a mother and her child have been missing for years, but finding flushed-out information about this case hasn’t been easy. While there are thousands of cases that only host a missing person date or a few sentences, not many include a mother and her three-year-old child. This story comes out of Mer Rouge, Louisiana, where 38-year-old Shrita Watson and little Cain Watson were last seen leaving the Bayou Gallion Subdivision on September 8, 2020.
Sadly, this is where details come to a screeching halt. The last update about this case was given by KNOE News just a few weeks ago, but the only thing the outlet reported was that the Morehouse Parish Sheriff’s Office continues to search for the mother and son, asking for the public’s help in locating the pair. The status of their investigation is unclear, as if any information regarding Shrita’s personal life, professional career, or final movements ahead of disappearing. Also, there haven’t been any interviews or talks with her family or friends in news reports.
Although the Morehouse Parish Sheriff’s Office has stated that Shrita and Cain haven’t been seen or heard from again, it is unknown if Cain also has a missing person report of his own.
At the time of her disappearance, Shrita Watson stood 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighed 165 pounds. She had black/dark brown hair and brown eyes. Any physical descriptors or what she was last seen wearing are unknown. It is unclear if her DNA, dental records, or fingerprints are on file. Her middle name is “Lee Chantel.” She would be 39-years-old at the time of this publication.
Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the Morehouse Parish Sheriff’s Office at (318) 281-4141 or their local authorities. The agency case number is 20-004530.
Please share this story about Shrita Watson and her young son Cain to raise awareness about this missing person case. She is our sister and her life matters.
