    I was 13 or 14 when Regina went missing. We went to the same church, and she was friends with my sister.
    I found a similiar case online, that happened in october the same year. I never heard of the other case, but I think they're linked. They're to similiar, and they happened to close together not the be linked.
    I remember going to visit her mom, with my sister, and grandmother right after she went missing. No parent should have to go through something like this. I hope this case can be solved for the sake of her family, and for everyone that was lucky enough to have been able to know her. [/I]

    I don't remember what part of Ohio she is from, but the other case I found that happened just a few months later, was in Brooksville, Ky. Which is right next to Ohio. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brooksville,_Kentucky
    Somerset is about 45 minutes from Tennessee, so who ever it was, was traveling towards Ohio atleast. If the two cases are linked.

    Welcome to Websleuths, concreteman. Thanks for posting. These two cases might very well be connected.

    What more do you know about each of the missing girls and the circumstances? These short summaries are often pretty brief.

    The only girl I know is the one from Somerset (Regina). She went to Southwestern Highschool, and was a Jehovah's Witness. She joined the Navy, which is against their belief. I think she was in JROTC. She was from Ohio. She was kind of timid/shy. She was a very sweet girl.
    If I remember correctly, they had llamas, but that maybe was someone else. It's been 12 years ago.
    Not sure if any of this information is relevant.

    NCIS website

    For some reason, Regina's case is no longer listed on the NCIS website. I have made an inquiry.

    She was at one time on the NCIS website. When I recently saw that she was no longer listed, I enquired. Here is the quick reply sent to me by NCIS:

    "This investigation belongs to the Pulaski County, KY, Sheriff's Office
    (PCSO). "

    That bothers me, they're probably just going to sit on this case.

    Military status?

    I wonder what her actual status with the military was when she went missing. Since NCIS had enough interest in her case to list her, I would suspect that she had already enlisted in the Navy or Marine Corps.

    I know of other cases in which military men or women are simply declared deserters and it is expected that local authorities will take up the job of looking for them. I wonder if those local authorities who supposedly have this case are actually looking for her. I sincerely hope so.

    Regina Cox

    I live in Somerset and was 16 years old when this happened. I am now 30 and still cannot forget about Regina Cox. So many questions are left unanswered in this case. However, I do feel that the Erica Fraysure and Regina Cox cases are linked. There is also another case from Henderson County Kentucky that is similar to this. However, in the Henderson County case there was an eyewitness. The girl's name in that case is Heather Teague. Still yet, it is strange to me that the Erica Fraysure and Regina Cox cases have so many striking similarities. Both girls cars were found with all their belongings inside their cars (I.E. purses, personal items, ID's). Maybe someone can shed new light on this.

    Ooo, yet another brunette Cox girl missing in 1997, from an abandoned car with her personal belongings behind. Also a young adult with brown hair, light colored eyes. With such a distance, I'm doubtful they're related, but... it's worth mentioning.
