26 years of age Sara Ebersole was last seen on March 3, 2023 in Reddick, Florida. She vanished after leaving her job and entering a vehicle with two unknown individuals.
Sara Gail Ebersole was born on September 18, 1996, and has seven older siblings.
Ebersole was raised primarily by her maternal uncle and aunt in Sarasota, Florida. She occasionally stayed with her older sister in Dunnellon when she was a teenager.
In 2014, Ebersole, then 18 years old, got married and moved with her husband to Dunnellon. The marriage was brief, as the couple divorced a year later.
Ebersole lived with a roommate at 19220 Northwest 60th Avenue in Reddick, Florida, and worked as an exotic dancer at the time of her disappearance.
Ebersole has a daughter who primarily resides with the child’s father, her ex-boyfriend.
Sara Ebersole sent her sister a text message on March 2, 2023, around 7:00 p.m., requesting a ride home, but her sister was unavailable at the time. At 7:50 p.m., she sent her sister another text message instructing her to say “hi” to her children.
Ebersole’s last text message to her sister was sent at 10:11 p.m., stating that she “was getting into a random truck with some cowboys” and expressing her hope that “they took her for a ride.”
Ebersole was captured on surveillance footage leaving the Circle K at 17980 North Highway 441 in Reddick, Florida shortly after 10 p.m. and entering a black pickup truck with two unknown males.
Sara Ebersole never returned to her residence and has not been heard from since.
On March 3, Sara’s roommate attempted to file a missing person’s report, but police instructed her to wait a week. When her family was unable to contact her, they filed a missing person report with the Marion County Sheriff’s Office.
Investigation of Case
Authorities were able to identify the two men in the black pickup truck that Ebersole was last seen entering. They were both interviewed, but no additional details have been disclosed.
Later, authorities stated that Ebersole was last seen entering a blue sedan, possibly a Hyundai, in the early hours of March 3, 2023. Authorities will not say whether they have located the blue sedan or its owner, citing the ongoing investigation.
According to her sister, one of the two men’s roommates stated that Ebersole visited their residence that night and stayed until 3:00 or 5:00 a.m. before leaving in a blue vehicle.
Currently, the investigation into Sara Ebersole’s disappearance is active and ongoing. The circumstances surrounding Sara’s disappearance are currently unknown, and she is classified as missing. Her case is still unresolved.
