Details of Disappearance
Russ was last seen at an Exxon gas station near Crosstimbers Street and Interstate 45 in Houston, Texas. At the time of her disappearance, she was training to be the manager of the Exxon station, and also driving a taxi. At 2:15 a.m., Russ asked her boss if she could leave early; she was recovering from an ear infection and felt unwell. The manager agreed and she left.

There was no sign of Russ at the scene and her case remains unsolved.

Someone left the following comments on a blog post of mine about this case. I didn't authenticate the individual's identity.

"My daughter had several tattoo's. On the back of her neck in about 1 inch English Script she had SMITH. She had a small heart on I believe the outside of her left leg down towards the ankle. She had a couple others, but I can't remember.
The car was located at an apartment house, that has been torn down
and I think there is a clinic there now. I don't know if the police found any fingerprints?? They had the car for about a month and tore it apart. They still have all her private belongings that were left in the car." Posted Aug 2021.
