Family of missing Panola County woman pleads for daughter’s return | KETK.com | FOX51.com It’s been 2 years since Lauren went missing. The family of a Panola County woman, who went missing two years ago this Sunday, plead for their daughter’s return. Lauren Thompson, a mother of three young children,suddenly disappeared on January 10th, 2019. Thompson’s parents spoke to KETK with their first-ever TV interview, going public with a message of hope, yet heartbreak. Two years later, both still desperate for a break in their daughter’s case. Gregory and Torie Colvin, Thompson’s parents, recounted the bleak voicemail from the Panola County Sheriff, Kevin Lake. A message that turned their life upside down. “ They said ma’am the reason we’re calling is that she was on a 911 call… and the call ended abruptly and we have her missing.” Let’s rewind to the day prior, moments before she vanished. Lauren Thompson and her mother shared a phone call. “The day she contacted my wife, immediately prior to the 911 call, she was excited and lucid and able to reason,” said Gregory. Then, just seven minutes later according to Thompson’s dad, everything changed. Lauren dialed 911 for help somewhere in a densely wooded area called Rock Hill in Panola County. “She believed that someone might be chasing her. She was unable to tell us if she actually saw anybody chasing her or if she could hear anybody chasing her or who it may be.” After about 22 minutes, the call ended abruptly when her phone battery died. She was never heard from again. “From the tape, we were able to come to the conclusion that something was certainly wrong,” said Gregory. While a lot has changed since Lauren Thompson’s mysterious disappearance, one thing remains: hope for her return.
