Myra, a 2-year-old who was born on November 30, 2011, was last seen playing outside her home on Mount Pilgrim Road in Camden, Mississippi, between 10:30 and 11:00 a.m. on March 1, 2014. When she vanished, her mother, Ericka Lewis, told her and her sisters to go inside the house where their father, Gregory Lewis, was watching their one-month-old child while she went to the grocery store.
Myra’s father mistakenly believed that she went to the store with her mother, and her mother believed that she was at home with her sisters and her father. Unfortunately, both parents ended up believing that their child was with the other during this time. Because of this, nobody discovered she was missing until 3 p.m. After an hour of searching, during which Gregory not only used an ATV to look for her but also attempted to use the family’s dogs to track her despite their lack of training.
Because of this, nobody discovered she was missing until 3 p.m. After an hour of searching, during which Gregory not only used an ATV to look for her but also attempted to use the family’s dogs to track her despite their lack of training. There were a few reports of her being seen in Memphis, Tennessee, at one point. A hotel employee claimed to have seen Myra with a man, but the two had already left by the time police arrived. The children of the parents were later taken out of the house because, according to reports, their home was condemned.
After the family’s search efforts were unsuccessful, they called the police, who then dispatched police K-9s to track her instead—again, unsuccessfully. After a thorough search of the area, no trace of her could be found. Additionally, not a lot else is known about her case.
A little more background information about Myra’s mother reveals that while she was once sentenced to probation for food stamp fraud, this does not necessarily indicate that she was responsible for her daughter going missing. Additionally, Ericka had a prior felony conviction, though it is unknown for what offense. Everyone in the family has taken a lie detector test, according to the police, who also claim that everyone has been cooperative. Their SUV has also been checked out, but nothing noteworthy has been found in it. So far as is known, the family was not involved in Myra’s disappearance.
Myra is an African-American female with black hair and brown eyes. At the time, she was 2-years old and would be 7-years old this year. She stood at 2’10, and last weighed at 27 pounds.
