  • Details of Disappearance
    Tarasha was last seen on June 26, 2010. She said goodbye to her mother right before she left their Selma, Ala., home for a flea market in June 2010. She left in a gray Mazda pick-up belonging to her friend. Whether or not Tarasha made it to the flea market is unknown. According to police, Tarasha visited a yard sale with friends after leaving her home. There she met with a relative who borrowed Tarasha's cell phone to make a call. Her vehicle was recovered on Route 80 -- just 1 mile from the flea market. Reportedly, the truck had two missing windows on the driver's side as well as a broken door also on the driver's side. She went out with friends regularly and would typically call home often. When the teen never called, her family went to the police..
