A mentally disabled 19-year-old woman went missing from her Alabama home more than a decade ago. She hasn’t been seen since.
On Sept. 8, 2011, Shanna Peoples was last seen near her home in Geneva, Alabama, according to the FBI. At the time, she lived about two blocks from her parents’’ home. Officials described Peoples as having the maturity level of a 13-year-old girl and bipolar.
Peoples’ daily routine consisted of walking and riding her bike between the two houses, according to investigators. She also rode to the nearby store to buy candy.
When reported missing, the door of her home was left open and the television on, federal investigators said.
While there was no sign of a struggle, family members said Peoples was very routine about turning off the TV and locking the door when she left, according to the FBI.
Peoples also frequently spoke on her cell phone and it was turned off around 4 p.m. the day she went missing, according to the FBI.
It’s now been more than a decade since Peoples’ vanished and her family spoke to WKRG in September 2021 to mark the 10-year anniversary of her vanishing. Elvis McKee, her father, said despite the years passing, it hasn’t gotten any easier.
“It don’t get no easier — just someone come forward and give us something,” McKee told WKRG. “Let us know what happened to our daughter. All it takes is one person. Somebody say something, please.”
Anyone with information on Peoples’ disappearance is asked to contact their local FBI office.
