    Details of Disappearance

    Carlisle was last seen walking home from City High School at approximately 2:55 p.m. on March 16, 1989 in Chattanooga, Tennessee. She was headed to her family's residence in the 600 block of Hamilton Avenue at the time. A witness observed Carlisle's abduction approximately one-half block from Carlisle's home at approximately 3:00 p.m. A woman on Ruth Street near Hamilton Avenue glanced up the hill and watched Carlisle walking down the street. Several unidentified suspects jumped out of a tan and yellow van, forcibly pulled Carlisle inside the vehicle and then drove away. The witness told authorities that she and her husband chased the vehicle and called law enforcement with its license number. Carlisle's mother filed a missing child report with authorities eight hours later when her daughter failed to return home. The two cases were not connected for some time.

    The license number of the vehicle involved in the abduction was traced back to Jeffrey Jones. Jones had been released from prison for a rape conviction shortly before Carlisle disappeared. He committed suicide and was found deceased inside his van on March 18, 1989, two days after Carlisle was last seen. There has been no trace of her since that time.

    Carlisle enjoys pizza and fast food items. She liked rap music and the musical artist Bobby Brown at the time of her 1989 disappearance. Her case remains unsolved.
