    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Wright disappeared from East Dallas on October 14, 1989. Wright walked to a neighbor's home in her family's apartment complex, Valley Glen Apartments on Hollybush Drive off Ferguson Road in east Dallas, Texas, between 10:30 and 10:50 on October 14, 1989. She had gone to a neighbor's to give a message from her mother. Wright did arrive at the neighbor's apartment, but she never made it back to her own.

    Wright may have been seen in the breezeway of a nearby apartment shortly after her disappearance, but this sighting has not been confirmed.

    Foul play is suspected in Wright's case. Her father, who lived in Rockwall, Texas at the time of her disappearance, was interviewed by police but disclaimed any knowledge of her whereabouts.

    Wright was a fourth-grade student at Bayles Elementary School in 1989, and was in the gifted and talented program. She enjoyed music, dancing and swimming at the time of her disappearance.

    Tasha is in Namus now...


    It's just incredible to me that we don't have any more information on her. So sad.
    A run-away may leave on purpose, but that doesn't mean that they are able to get back home.... Never stop searching.

    Tasha has been missing for 26 years. It's sad to see such a lack of information for her case. It seems like there was an initial investigation but nothing was found and nothing else has been revealed to the public. Tasha is one of the few missing children without an age-progression picture available. I think you need the family's permission to do one so maybe they just don't want one done for personal reasons. Perhaps a spotlight feature for her by the media would produce some tips that can help them solve the case.
