Details of Disappearance

Tasha was last seen in Dallas, Texas on October 14th 1989. She walked to a neighbors home in her family’s apartment complex which was known as the Valley Glen Apartments on Hollybush Drive off Ferguson Road between 10:30 am and 10:50 am. Tasha had gone to the neighbors with a message from her mother.

It was confirmed that Tasha did in fact arrive at the neighbors residence but she never returned to her residence. There may have been a possible sighting of her in the breezeway of another apartment shortly after she disappeared but this sighting remains unconfirmed. She has never been seen or heard from again.

Tasha’s father who lived in Rockwall, Texas at the time of his daughters disappearance was interviewed in regards to the case but he had no information about her whereabouts.

Authorities suspect that Tasha was the victim of foul play and her disappearance is classified as a non family abduction. She was a good student and was gifted in her school. She was in the gifted and talented program at Bayles Elementary School. Her hobbies included music, dancing, and swimming in 1989.

Tasha’s disappearance remains unsolved.
