Home » Justine Pierre, 34: Last Seen Walking Away From Home
Early on in the investigation into the disappearance of Justine Pierre, authorities believed her case involved foul play. Unfortunately, there hasn’t been much else shared since she vanished in 2017 from Miami, Florida. Updates on the investigation may be scarce, but Justine’s relatives did speak with local reporters weeks after she vanished.
According to reports, it was on November 5 when the 34-year-old was last seen walking away from her home near NE 118th Terrace and 14th Avenue. It is unclear where Justine Pierre may have been traveling to and how long she intended to be away from her residence. Her son told authorities that the last thing she said to him was “lock the door.”
Justine’s family informed reporters that the loving mother was employed at the Camillus House which gives aid to the vagrant and homeless. They also refuted any reports that Justine was struggling with mental illness and stated she hasn’t exhibited any behaviors like this before.
“I think somebody kidnapped her,” Solange Stvil, Justine’s sister said. “We love Justine. We need Justine back – her two little kids. We need her back.” She added, “I don’t eat sometimes at night time since I know that. I sleep maybe 30 minutes.”
Justin’s son, Ricky Burke, was just 12 when his mom disappeared. “I miss her very much. I’m actually very worried,” Ricky shared in 2017. He also stated that his little sister would often ask where their mother was. “Heartbreaking – that’s how I describe it.”
Police have publicly noted that they believe the missing mother could have been held against her will; however, they did not locate any solid evidence that Justine Pierre was the victim of a kidnapping.
“She has made no contact via phone or in person with anyone,” a detective told NBC Miami.
At the time of her disappearance, Justine Pierre stood 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighed 190 pounds. She had black/dark brown hair and brown eyes. Any distinguishing marks are unknown, but it was reported that Justine was last seen wearing a pink sweater (or blouse), blue jeans, and sandals. She had her cell phone with her, but she was not carrying her purse or her wallet.
