Lisa Eubanks is listed as missing, but I felt she needed to be included in this list because she was last seen on January 15, 1999. Lisa's left eyebrow is pierced and her ears are pierced multiple times. She would be 42 now.
According to Charleyproject.org,
Lisa lived with her mother and stepfather in Texarkana, Texas. She received a telephone call from a male friend at approximately 12:30 AM on January 15, 1999. Someone in a vehicle came and picked her up at 1:30 AM. Lisa got in the car and was never seen again. Her parents assumed she had left with a friend and would be back shortly.
