Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
Valentine was last seen at her home in the Sycamore Park apartment complex in Fayetteville, NC on October 28, 2014. Surveillance video from Valentine’s apartment complex captured her walking along a sidewalk in front of her building when she paused and stared at a vehicle. Valentine then hurried to her apartment. A man was then seen getting out of a vehicle and chasing her. Police identified the man as Reginald McDowell, the father of one of Valentine’s children.
Valentine, a secretary and choir director at Deliverance and Praise Church of Worship on Owen Drive, failed to come to a prayer service the next day. Her pastor says she became very fearful before vanishing.
Court records indicate McDowell was convicted of kidnapping Valentine in 1999. Valentine was able to get away that time. McDowell was sentenced to 15 years in prison and released in 2011. McDowell denied having anything to do with Valentine's disappearance, but remains a person of interest in Valentine’s disappearance.
