My daughter, Felicia Lachell Clark, is a 1990 graduate of Whitehaven High School in Memphis, Tn. I last saw Felicia the morning of October 25, 1991. I returned home at 6:00 p.m., but noticed that Felicia was not home, even though she had prepared her clothes for her part-time job which started at 10:00 p.m. She usually left for work at 9:15 p.m., and when that time passed, I felt a disquieting and uncomfortable feeling that something was not right. It was not like my daughter to not call home if she was going to be out. Felicia and I talked five times or more everyday.
Felicia was a full-time student at LeMoyne-Owen College; she was so excited about her new job promotion at Federal Express. I know within my heart that Felicia did not leave on her own. Everything about her disappearance was strange and out of character. Right at a time when Felicia had so much going for herself, why would she just leave? Nothing was missing from the home, her clothes, check book, last uncashed paycheck, jewelry, and prescription glasses. The clothes that she was to wear to work that night were on the chair in her room.
What young person would work hard to purchase a vehicle (September 10, 1991), just to leave it the following month? Her vehicle was found abandoned two weeks after her disappearance.
This is the most challenging situation I’ve ever faced; my faith in God has sustained me through out the years. I do believe that I know my daughter better than anyone else.
No one has ever been able to convince me that because a young adult (18 years or older) who is missing wants to be gone on their own, I refuse to believe or accept that as a fact. I know that someone knows something about this situation, but whom?
