    NC - Timeka Pridgen, 16, La Grange, 12-May-2001



    LA GRANGE, N.C. Investigators and relatives are stumped more than nine years after a 16-year-old girl disappeared from her home in Lenoir County.

    Cosandra Best last saw her daughter, Timeka Pridgen, at their home in La Grange, east of Goldsboro, on May 12, 2001.

    Best said she came home to rest and wait for her boyfriend. She dozed off and woke up around midnight to find that Timeka was missing and her boyfriend, then 31-year-old Eric Moore, had never showed up.

    "I started looking around to see if anything was missing, and I saw that the shoes that she was wearing was still there (and) her purse. That's when the panic set in," Best recalled.
    .........................
    After her daughter disappeared, Best learned from police about her boyfriend's criminal past: convictions for a sex crime, kidnapping, assault and theft.

    What we are doing is just a drop in the ocean.
    But if that drop was not in the ocean,
    I think the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

    Did the police ever trace the boyfriend's whereabouts that evening? Seems like they really didn't look into this all that much...

    WRAL ran another story about her today (and it looks like lazy work since they copied their own previous story...)

    http://www.wral.com/2001-disappearan...olved/8866192/

    There were no signs of forced entry or a struggle at the home. Investigators determined that Timeka had been on the phone with a friend, who told them the call ended after she heard a knock at the door.

    "There have been a number of searches around LaGrange, as well as the Goldsboro area," said Anthony Jernigan, assistant special agent-in-charge with the State Bureau of Investigation.

    In 2006, Moore was convicted of a sex crime that happened two years after Timeka's disappearance. He is serving a minimum nine-year prison sentence and is scheduled to be released in 2015.
