OH MISSING WOMEN: Missing from CHILLICOTHE, OH - 2013 - 2015

    CHILLICOTHE'S MISSING WOMEN: 'These Girls Knew Each Other' ... And Now They're Gone

    One-by-one, at least four women have disappeared or turned up dead in this small city, where family and friends fear a serial killer or sex traffickers are on the loose, and authorities are ruling nothing out.

    "There is something going on," Yvonne Boggs told The Huffington Post. "It seems strange that all these girls knew each other and are now missing. Someone is taking these girls for some reason."

    Who are they?

    Charlotte Trego: Missing since May 3rd, 2014

    Was the first of the women to go missing in the small city roughly 50 miles south of Columbus.

    Wanda Lemons: Missing since November 4, 2014

    Six months to the day that Trego and Lynch were last seen -- 37-year-old Wanda Lemons was last seen in Chillicothe.

    Tiffany Sayre: Missing since May 11th, 2015

    It was around midnight on May 11, some six months after Lemons' disappearance, that 26-year-old Tiffany Sayre disappeared in Chillicothe. She was last seen by her friend, Jessie Sanford.
    One who was found:

    Tameka Lynch: Disappeared May 3, 2014 yes the same day as Charlotte.

    Lynch was found dead on May 24, 2014. Kayakers found her naked body on a sandbar in Paint Creek, roughly 20 miles downstream from where it passes through Chillicothe.
    According to the autopsy report, Lynch's cause of death was "likely multiple drug overdoses." The manner of death is listed as "undetermined circumstance."

    "She was already dead when she was put in the water," Robinson said.

    "They all ran in the same circle -- the drug scene and things like that," Meyers said. "In my 23-year career, I have handled 30 to 40 cases of missing people and generally those cases are quickly solved. These cases, where people have been gone this long, are odd."

    Then there is Megan Lancaster: Missing Since April 3, 2013


    Megan Lancaster, the mother of a 9-year-old boy, was last seen in Portsmouth on April 3, 2013. Her vehicle was later found abandoned at an area business. Portsmouth is a city located about 45 miles south of Chillicothe.

    "When Megan disappeared, they all started disappearing," said Kadie Lancaster.

    4/28/13 @ 7:50 p.m.LAWRENCE COUNTY, Ohio (WSAZ) – A search party was out Sunday, combing through Wayne National Forest on foot and with ATVs, looking for a young woman who was last seen in early April.

    Megan Lancaster, 25, of Wheelersburg, was last seen April 3. Police have said they believe she’s in extreme danger. Family and friends aren’t yet giving up hope and continue to search every day.

    "Every day since she's been gone, and we won't quit,” Kadie Lancaster, Megan’s sister-in-law, said.

    This article about Charlotte Trego says that FOUR other women went missing, and I don't think that counts the most recent who is Tiffany!

    ROSS COUNTY, Ohio -

    Shasta Himelrick is not the only Ross County woman who has gone missing.

    Four other woman in that county - went missing this year, alone.

    The family of Wanda Lemons said they have not heard from her since November 3. Lemons' mother said it is unusual for her not to call during the holidays.

    Investigators spoke to a friend of Lemon's who said Wanda had gone to Texas with a truck driver".

    G'Afternoon Kimster!
    Hey they have a facebook group for missing women of Ohio, but I didn't know if I could link it. It is an "open" group, it's just not a page. They had one listed in the article and when you go to it, there is a post that says it is closing down and they have the new group ready to go.

    David Lohr from Huffington Post who wrote the above article is also part of that group.

    This is horrifying to say the least!

    All the facebook pages listed above, do have some info in part of searches, backgrounds, other women/girls missing.

    Rest In Peace Shasta~

    Shasta told her family that she was pregnant on Christmas....and then she disappeared.

    A 20-year-old woman missing since Christmas Day — when she announced her pregnancy — drowned, the Ross County coroner has ruled.

    Coroner John Gabis would not speculate how or why Shasta Himelrick, who was found on Friday, ended up in the Scioto River about a mile south of the Higby Road bridge.

    Gabis has not ruled the death a homicide.

    “My job is to determine cause and manner of death. The cause is drowning. The manner is still being determined.”


    They are heartbroken on the Facebook page listed above here in this post.
    The comments for the latest....ummm boyfriend had another girlfriend who died ( no names )
    The family is in no uncertain terms saying she did not commit suicide.
    Just heartbreaking.

    :( I don't believe in coincidences. Is the FBI involved? IMO, this sounds like a serial kidnapper.

    Have I got it right - they all ran in the same (drug) circles, they all knew each other? Doesn't seem all that hard to work out where to start looking. Not to minimise at all the seriousness of the situation. But really? It's not that much of a mystery, as things currently appear.

    During its initial investigation into the missing persons report, Chillicothe police spoke with a friend who had last seen Lemons Nov. 3 and that she had indicated she was possibly going to head to Texas with the help of a truck driver.

    Since she was initially reported missing Dec. 28, Chillicothe police have contacted Shadyside police and law enforcement in Galveston, Texas, after evidence led them to believe Lemons might have visited both areas within the past year. Police said Lemons could be going by her previous married name, Hodges, or her maiden name, Jackson.

    I agree with Madge. It looks like a serial killer to me.

    Tameka Lynch
    found deceased in May 2014

    The Ross County Sheriff's Office reported that it is working with the Chillicothe Police Department to track down witnesses and pinpoint a timeline of when Lynch, 30, was last seen and whom she might have been with. Kayakers found her body Saturday afternoon in Paint Creek near Bainbridge.

    " Meanwhile, investigators in Chillicothe are searching for another missing woman, Charlotte Trego, was last seen on May 3.

    Trego's mother tells 10TV her daughter and Tameka Lynch knew each other, but police say at this point they do not believe the cases are connected".

    David Lohr is going to do an article on Shasta soon.
    She is the one that they say "jumped" off a bridge at Christmas, after telling she told her family she was pregnant.
    They said when they found her car, the battery was dead and the car was empty of gas.
    They say she was happy. The family isn't buying it for one bit.

    Thanks for all the hard work on getting them in the media section.

    Another woman was found on the banks of the Ohio River a little bit southeast of Chillicothe. :waitasec:

    "Authorities in West Virginia have confirmed a body discovered on the banks of the Ohio River in Gallia County, Ohio is that of missing woman Frances Wartenburg".


    She was last seen in West Virginia? Is that what I'm reading?
