    Dixie Barker lived in a trailer at a trailer park that she shared with her son. Dixie Barker was last seen at her residence on February 8, 1983 in the area of the 3400 block of South 29th Street in Ashland, Kentucky.

    There were approximately 60 homes in the trailer park where Dixie Barker lived. No one from the trailer park saw Dixie Barker leave home on that day.

    Nothing was missing from Barker’s home to suggest that she left on her own accord as all of her personal belongings were found undisturbed.

    At the time of her disappearance, her son was a city sanitation worker. Her son told police investigators that he last saw his mother at their home before he left that morning for work.

    Dixie Barker was never seen or heard from since the day she disappeared.

    A close relative posted years later on an unsolved mysteries message board that Dixie Barker was a little wild for her age, liked to go to bars, and wore fancy clothes. Dixie Barker also went by the handle Baby Blue on the CB Radio.

    While police investigators have several persons of interest in the disappearance of Dixie Barker, they never had enough evidence to make an arrest in this case.

    Dixie Barker’s case remains unsolved.

    The Ashland, Kentucky Police Department is investigating this as an endangered missing person case.
