MP of the week: Marcie Peterson

Marcie Tokeysha Peterson is this week’s featured missing person. She was 28 when she disappeared from Marietta, Georgia the day before Halloween in 2003. She has at least three tattoos, two of which are of Chinese symbols.

Marcie had run into some personal setbacks and was having (shall we say) some difficulties with several different people prior to her disappearance, and she’d been threatened. In spite of this, however, her sister said she didn’t seem concerned about anything and was trying to put her life back together. It’s possible she traveled to New York after she went missing, but police believe it’s more likely that she came to harm.

I don’t have much on her and as far as I know, no one has been named as a suspect in her case. Essence Magazine, a monthly publication for African-American women, featured Marcie’s case along with several other missing black women about four or five ten years ago, but I can’t find the article now.

    Beautiful photo of her. It sounds like she’d been dealing with shady characters.

    I actually have (or at least had) that issue of Essence that you are referring to. The article and issue was from the Summer of 2004 and I picked it up because it had a picture of then-America’s Next Top Model winner, Eva Marcille (or as she was known back then, Eva Pigford). Anyway, it had some other missing women in the issue, including (if memory serves) Daphne Jones, Kireasha Linkhorne, Latoya Thomas and Tameka Huston and Shirley Greanes (both of whom have since been located deceased).

      And Tyesha Bell and I think Mary White.

  3. anniefauxkley May 13, 2015 / 3:17 pm Human remains were found this past Sept 2014 VERY near to where she went missing – examining the skeleton was not able to determine sex or age (from what is released publicly some time ago), but a few remnants of clothing remain. Both were tags, and the tag for the top was size xxl – this victim was the only person missing in the vicinity of Cumberland blvd that matched the Limited info on the UID discovered… The time frame seems fitting as it would enough time to degrade the scene/body and she’s the only person I’ve noticed who had more weight on them and might have wore XXL shirts.
