    Investigation continues for missing pregnant woman from Mississippi

    Holmes County officials are asking for the public’s help to find 21-year-old Makayla Winston.

    Yvetty Brown is her mother and plead for her safe return saying, “I just want my baby home.”

    Brown said Winston was with her other daughter in Goodman Thursday night before she left in her car.

    “She was heading to show the sonogram to the baby’s father,” said Brown.

    Winston is pregnant and her due date is July 4th.

    “We went looking to where we thought she would be, but she wasn’t there,” said Brown before filing a missing persons report.

    Holmes County Sheriff Willie March said Winston's car was spotted Friday morning off Highway 14, near Interstate 55.

    “We understood that there was a white vehicle parked behind her, kind of like an SUV. But no one knows who was driving the SUV,” said March.

    Winston’s car was found alone; keys in the ignition and a cell phone tossed in the grass.

    “The cell phone was cleaned up so we’re also doing an investigation on the cellular phone, trying to find out what was erased,” said March.

    The Sheriff says the Mississippi Bureau of Investigation has interviewed several people and suspect foul play.

    “She was a quiet person. She didn’t hang out. Mostly, she was around family. I just want my baby home," said Brown.

    Family searches miles of HWY 14 for missing Holmes County woman

    It has been three days and still no sign of a missing pregnant woman in Holmes County.

    The Winston brown family last saw their daughter Makayla Thursday. They’ve been working non-stop to figure out what happened to 21 year old Makayla Winston.

    It began Thursday night when Makayla Winston of Goodman went out to drive to her boyfriend’s house to show him sonograms of her soon to be newborn.

    “When she didn’t come home and didn’t answer her phone when her sister was calling her it was going straight to voice mail,” Makayla’s mother Yvetty Brown told us. “So we knew then something was wrong because it wasn’t like Makayla to answer her phone.”

    Immediately on the search authorities and family found her four-door Pontiac Grand Prix sitting off highway 14 by the I-55 ramp.

    “The keys were left in the ignition, my daughter wasn’t in the car but her shoes were on the ground,” Brown said. “And she wouldn’t walk barefoot; she wouldn’t leave the keys in the ignition.”

    Now day and night Makayla’s family and close friends have covered miles through bushes, ditches and side roads searching for clues.

    “We’ve been searching all of highway 14 and the area where the car was found,” Brown stated. “We did 14 and Attala County.”

    “As soon as I got contact that she was missing I jumped straight up out of my bed,” Neighbor Clara Williams said. “And to the family and try to do everything that I can.”

    With her daughters due date expected to be July 4th, Yvetty has been doing much planning to become a grandmother.

    “I had just gone shopping that night,” Brown said. “Me, her and my sister in-law bought baby clothes and everything else that the baby needed.”

    Desperate for the whereabouts of her child and expected grandchild the family is pleading for those responsible to even just call anonymously with answers to get her back.

    The Mississippi Bureau of Investigations is now joining in the case, and we’re told the Holmes County Sheriff has questioned the father of Makayla’s expected child but no suspects announced at this time.

    Dead pregnant woman's boyfriend in custody

    Justin Vicory Mississippi Clarion Ledger

    Published 3:04 PM EDT Jul 2, 2019

    LEXINGTON, Miss. — The boyfriend of a missing pregnant woman whose body was discovered in Holmes County Monday has been taken into custody, Sheriff Willie March confirmed Tuesday.

    Terrence K. Sample, 33, was booked into the Holmes-Humphreys County Regional Correctional Facility Monday night, but as of Tuesday afternoon he had not been charged.

    March said investigations allow a 72-hour holding period and that he was waiting on the cause of death and to consult with a judge.

    The body of Makayla Winston, 21, was found about noon Monday on Franklin Road. Winston, who was nine months pregnant, had last been seen Thursday night driving a four-door 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix, according to authorities.

    Local media had previously reported that Winton's family said she was going to show a sonogram of the baby to the father but never returned. Her due date was Thursday.

    Deputies found Winston's car with the keys still in the ignition at the intersection of Mississippi Highway 14 and Interstate 55 in Holmes County. Winston’s mobile phone was also recovered; however, text messages on the phone had been deleted, March said. Investigators were working to recover the text messages.

    Winston's body was taken to the state crime lab in Jackson to determine the cause and manner of death, March said.
