2-year-old Myra Lewis was last seen sometime between 10:30 and 11 am on March 1, 2014, playing with her siblings in the front yard of their home in Camden, Mississippi. Her mother, Ericka Lewis, stepped out for a quick trip to the grocery store and told Myra and her siblings to go inside where their father, Gregory, was tending to the couple’s newborn baby.

Somehow, Myra never made it

Ericka and Gregory said they didn’t realize that Myra wasn’t in the house until 3 pm after Ericka returned home from the store. Before calling the police to report the little girl missing, the couple claimed they searched on their own for an hour, checking every corner of their home.

Despite a massive search effort with ATVs, and tracker dogs, Myra was never located. Gregory and Ericka Lewis both passed polygraph tests and their vehicle was searched but nothing of relevance was found.

However, during the search of the Lewis home, investigators found firearms which was a violation of Ericka’s probation from a food stamp fraud conviction. Gregory later stated that they were used for hunting. As a result, Ericka was arrested, and their remaining children were placed in foster care. Ericka was released two months later in May 2014.

In August 2014, Gregory and Ericka Lewis stated their belief that Myra was abducted by someone from their front yard. In tears, Ericka Lewis pleaded with the unknown individual to return her daughter, “Whoever has her just bring her home, please. That’s my baby. That’s not your baby. I want her back. She misses me. She misses her dad…we really need her home. I know she wants to come home.”

Shortly after, the Lewis home was condemned by the state. The family moved away and vanished. To this day, their whereabouts remain unknown.

On the fifth anniversary of Myra’s disappearance, investigators stated that they could not get in contact with the couple because they did not leave a phone number and had not kept in touch regarding the status of their daughter’s case. Her disappearance is a heartbreaking mystery that has left a lasting impact on the community. Residents of Camden have never forgotten Myra and investigators continue to search for her nine years later.

Myra Lewis was last seen wearing a turquoise sweater with an image of a bear on the front, khaki pants, and pink sneakers. Today, she would be 11 years old.
