They are cold cases, crimes that for several years have plagued detectives and remained unsolved. Authorities believe someone out there has that missing piece of information they need, information that could close the case and give closure to families. FOX16 takes a look at two of these cases
These missing posters and pink ribbon have been hanging in the front of a Pine Bluff home for more than a decade.
"I am not going to rest until we know what happened" says Laurell Hall.
For the last 12 years Laurell Hall has been looking for her daughter Cleshindra Hall. The last time she saw Clashindra, she was 18 years old. Today, she's 30 years old.
"It's sad at family gatherings when she is not there" says Hall
On May 10th, 1994 Laurell Hall dropped her, then teenager daughter off at work. Clashindra did clerical work for a home office. Around 8:00 that night Clashindra called home to see if she had any messages, little did she know, it would be the last time she would hear her daughter’s voice.
"None of her friends have come forward and said they gave her a ride, the neighbors didn't see anything. We don't know what happened," says Hall.
She doesn't believe her daughter would just run away. First of all, she didn't bring her purse with her and left her drivers license at home. More importantly she was just two weeks from graduating and was headed to college where she was going to study to be a pediatrician.
"If she wanted to be alone she could have done it then," says Hall.
"Many of us having been working this case throughout our career, for the last 12 years. It's become very personal for us. This whole department wants to get this solved," says Lt. Bob Rawlinson.
"We wonder all the time, will we die and not know what happened. Are we destined to live the rest of our life with out knowing what happened," says Hall.
As she begins to tear up watching a homemade video scrap book, Laurell Hall is hoping that one day soon she can take the missing person posters and ribbon down and replace the memories of the last day she saw her daughter with new memories they make when her Clashindra returns home.
