MP of the week: Carla Losey

This week’s featured missing person is Carla Elizabeth Losey, a 20-year-old exotic dancer who disappeared on New Years’ Eve, 2002, from the Columbus, Ohio club where she worked.

I found this Columbus Dispatch article about Carla from 2014, the anniversary of her disappearance.

A word to the wise, as far as possibly matching Carla with UIDs: although she’s white, of Yugoslav descent, she has olive skin and black curly hair and looks like she could be Hispanic or biracial black/white.

    I am from Balkans(Montenegro) and there is no such thing as a “Yugoslav” descent. ex-yugoslavia was an artificial state composed from a number of ethnical groups(Serbian, Croatian, Albanian, Macedonian, Turkish, Hungarian, etc) amongst which many of them share a little or nothing in common regarding their cultural and religious background as well as customs and communities. For example, a “common” ethnic Serb and ethnic Albanian do not understand each other’s languages at all. I think it would be useful to know what community does she actually come from

      I don’t know. It just said Yugoslavia; my guess is her ancestors moved here while it was still a country. I’m aware of the vast differences between the countries that comprised the former Yugoslavia.

      Yeah, I assumed that the info about her descent came from LE report or something. I mentioned that it would be useful to know her ethnic background because some of the communities within ex-yu would “disagree” with her lifestyle much more than some other, sometimes to the extreme.

        I mean no offense, I think the least she would need is some kind of “disagree” with her life style from some strangers

      Would it be more accurate to say she is of Slavic descent?

      • Meaghan November 2, 2017 / 4:44 pm

        Slavs would also include Poland, and other countries.

    And ON topic, my maternal family is from what was Czechoslovakia, specifically Slovakia. My grandmother and great aunt escaped the Nazis. Until the early 90s, it was one country. After that, two. They spoke a Slovak, but understood Czech, and never considered themselves one or the other. I guess it comes down to how an individual identifies.

    Is it possible that Carla is Romani (commonly known as Gypsy)? Eastern Europe has a pretty sizable Romani population and the people usually have dark, curly hair and an olive complexion.

    As the mother of Carla I just want to say that her grandmother from her father’s side told me that her father was part Yugoslavian. I don’t know the history of her ancestors as the grandmother is now gone. All I know is Carla is still missing and nothing else matters.
