In honor of National Hispanic Heritage Month I’m featuring a Hispanic missing person every day from September 15 to October 15. Today’s case is Petrita Sista Harris, nicknamed Pat, a 60-year-old woman who disappeared from Magnolia, Arkansas on June 30, 2000.
A neighbor reported Harris missing, which is unusual — usually a relative does that. Perhaps she had no relatives. The neighbor didn’t file the report until July 10. When the police went to Harris’s home, they found the TV on and the kitchen door open — indications that Harris did not leave voluntarily, or if she did, she didn’t intend to be gone long.
I haven’t been able to find much news about this disappearance. If Harris is still alive, she’d be 79 today.
