Private Investigator Joins Search for Missing NLR Women

- NORTH LITTLE ROCK, AR -- Family and friends of two local women missing for two months are bringing in a private investigator to help bring their loved ones home.

For the past two months, North Little Rock Police have been investigating the disappearances of Shequenia Burnett and Terkessa Wallace. Both vanished without a trace, leaving behind children.

"It's hard to go on with daily life with all this going on in the back of your head trying to figure out what more can you do, who else can you talk to, why no one is going forward to say anything," says Burnett's sister Shanisa Thomas.

The last time anyone saw the two friends was January 10. With help from police, loved ones started tacking flyers across town, but two months later they found they'd all come down.

"I really thought we would have had something by now and it's like nothing," adds Thomas.

To re-ignite interest they called on Rizelle Aaron, a local investigator.

"The most important part is a lot of times people aren't comfortable talking to the police and if they are not comfortable they simply won't talk. Someone like me getting involved gives them an opportunity to talk to someone they trust, then I can share that information with the police," says Aaron.

"If it was your family you would want someone to come forward," Thomas says.

Terkessa Wallace drives a white 2009 Corolla.

There is a reward for information leading to their whereabouts. Call North Little Rock Police at (501) 758-1234.
