    A teenage mother and her 8-month-old daughter who have been missing since Aug. 8, 1991. Melissa Collins and her daughter, Jasmine, haven’t been seen since they walked to a neighborhood store. All of their belongings were left behind, as if they never intended to leave. Police received tips in 1993 that the mother and daughter had been killed, but this was never confirmed.
