I’m almost sure these are the same person…but…

A NamUs profile that just went up is for Reginald Lovell Garrett. I already had a Reginald Garrett on Charley, courtesy of the CDOJ, so I pulled him up to update his case with the info from the NamUs profile.


Reginald Lovell Garrett on NamUs has the listed date of disappearance as January 1, 1995, and in the “details of disappearance” it says his family doesn’t actually know the date but they believe it was sometime between 1994 and 1996. He is said to have disappeared from Pascagoula, Mississippi, after getting into a car with a white man. The Pascagoula Police Department is investigating.

Reginald Garrett on the Charley Project has a date of disappearance as February 2, 1995, and the place is given as Tulare, California. I have no other details about his disappearance. The Tulare Police Department is investigating.

I’m pretty sure these are the same man. I mean, the names are the same; they’re both black; the listed ages, heights and weights correspond with each other; the date range in Reginald Lovell Garrett’s case fits the date given for Reginald Garrett; Reginald Garrett’s photo closely resembles the three photos of Reginald Lovell Garrett.

I’m just not really sure how to deal with this, though. I mean, where’d he actually disappear from? Is it possible that he disappeared from Mississippi, went to California and then disappeared again from there? This isn’t the only time that’s happened.

Thoughts, anyone?

    I don’t think it’s him. I looked at the images section of his NamUs webpage at https://www.findthemissing.org/en/photos/full/67146 and they show him holding an information sheet for what looks like mugshots for the Pascagoula Police Department and the DOB listed on them is March 19, 1967. The DOB listed on the Reginald Garrett missing from Tulare, California is September 9, 1966.

    Oh, I remember this case being on the local news at the time he went missing! I don’t remember Mississippi being mentioned. To me it doesn’t look like him but there are a lot of similarities

    Yonks ago I had brought up the case of a woman who was missing twice, picture was the same, name almost so, in the early 70s? Can’t remember now, but it can happen.

    Off topic – this article says Cynthia May Hernandez’s remains were identified in 2014.

    “Her family found her car in the theater parking lot. Her remains were later found buried in the San Bernardino mountains near Allred’s family cabin but weren’t identified through DNA testing until 2014.”

      I checked the California Department of Justice webpage for her and she isn’t there anymore. You may be right about her no longer being missing.
