MP of the week: Gerald Marks

This week’s featured missing person is Gerald Alexander Marks, a 57-year-old man who disappeared from Detroit, Michigan in September 2007. For some reason he wasn’t reported missing until May 2011, nearly four years later. I don’t know anything else about his case but wonder if he was transient or had no family, and perhaps that’s why his disappearance wasn’t reported sooner.

MP of the week: Latrice Armstead

This week’s featured missing person is Latrice Shay Armstead, a 38-year-old woman who disappeared from Memphis, Tennessee on July 28, 2012. A few days later, her car was found abandoned and burned in Clarksdale, Mississippi.

It seems likely that Armstead’s estranged husband was behind her disappearance. They were in the process of a divorce and she had a restraining order against him, but he was seen twice with her on the day she disappeared.

MP of the week: Charles Radice

This week’s featured missing person (which I didn’t do yesterday cause I was at an early Independence Day thing) is Charles Anthony Radice, a 76-year-old World War II veteran who disappeared from Lancaster, California on May 15, 1995.

Curiously, his adult grandson, whom he lived with, didn’t bother to report him missing. Sounds pretty sketchy to me, but I don’t know much else about it, so who knows what happened there.

MP of the week: Jessie Barnes

This week’s featured missing person is Jessie Barnes, a 28-year-old mentally disabled woman who disappeared from West Point, Mississippi, a small town in the northeast part of the state, on July 7, 2000.

Although she had mental challenges, Jessie was relatively high-functioning and would sometimes “drop out of sight for a few days.” Her family got concerned and reported her missing after ten days because her grandma had died and she didn’t show up for the funeral.

I think if she is alive (and this seems unlikely) she may be on the streets somewhere. She has a daughter, and if still alive she would be 46 years old today.

MP of the week: Eugene Brown III

This week’s featured MP (which was supposed to go up yesterday I know) is Eugene Brown III, a 23-year-old black man who disappeared from Detroit, Michigan on November 15, 2008.

He was seen at a casino on the evening of the 14th, and was heard from (I’m assuming he called someone or they called him) at 1:00 a.m. on the 15th. Later, his car was found abandoned and burned, which doesn’t sound good at all.
