    LA - Daphne Jones, 22, pregnant, New Orleans, 3 January 1999

    http://newsone.com/3018475/daphne-ph...jones-missing/

    Daphne was a student at the University of New Orleans who had just moved from the dorms to an apartment after discovering that she was pregnant. She worked part-time at Brennan’s Restaurant and was supposed to work a 3 p.m. shift the day she went missing but never arrived for work.

    Just six days after her disappearance, Daphne, who was two months pregnant, was scheduled to quit her job, leave school, and return home to Maryland to live with her mother while she prepared to welcome her new child. The plane ticket had already been purchased. Daphne’s family says she told them she was being pressured to end the pregnancy.

    “She refused to have an abortion. She told her mother (my sister), and her mother told Daphne to come home so that she could take care of her,” Jones’ aunt Helena Smith told NewsOne in an interview. Jones’ grandmother dropped her off at her apartment and [that] was the last family member to see her alive.
    Daphne is described as a black female with a light complexion, 5'5" tall and 130 pounds, with brown eyes and short black or reddish-brown hair, and a tattoo of an Oriental symbol on her right shoulder.

    What a beautiful young lady. What about the child's father?

    The picture in the original post is not Daphne. That's a whole different person. This is Daphne. Bumping for 17 years. Poor woman, I bet the boyfriend or any potential fathers of her unborn child did this.

    I know this post is 18 years old but as a person who cared about Daphne I hope there are others out there still looking for her. Neither the picture in this post nor the one in the link is the Daphne jones in the story. The boyfriend from back home that she had just gotten back together with was in another state. That is always the first person they look at anyway. Daphne is a loving and trusting individual. Part of me wonders if it may have been a jilted lover that was not happy she was getting back with her boyfriend. Daphne is a beautiful, intelligent (at UNO on a jazz scholarship, spoke several languages) wonderful woman. I’ll never stop hoping to see my friend again one day. CL
