The family of Cleashindra Hall continues their search for the missing Pine Bluff woman 25 years later.
Cle’a was last seen when her mother, Laurell Hall, dropped her off at her employer’s home office in the 5000 block of Faucette Road, to work, her mother said in a news release.
The employer, who was the last known person to see her, said he has no knowledge of what happened to her, according to the release.
Cleashindra Hall was 18 years old at the time.
“Cle’a was an honor student at Watson Chapel High School, just two weeks from graduating and heading off to college. May 9, 2019, marks 25 years that her family has searched and waited for information and answers that have not come,” according to the release.
The search will continue, according to the family.
“My husband and I will never stop looking until we have taken our last breath,” Laurell Hall said.
She recently attended a bill signing by Gov. Asa Hutchinson at the State Capitol, that put into law a bill for C.A.R.T.(Child Abduction Response Team) which brings together collaboration of different agencies in the event of a missing child.
“This won’t help our case, but it will help our village of children in the future,” Laurell Hall said. “I understand that our case is cold and unless someone comes forward with some information that will cause a break in the case, we are stuck in limbo. The smallest information might be the key to open up our case.”
The family is still pleading for anyone with information to come forward. As they have for the past 25 years, the family released balloons May 9 in the hope that someone will recognize her face.
Also, recently with the assistance of the Morgan Nick Foundation and Time Striping of Van Buren, the Halls have Cle’a’s flyer on the back window of the Hall family’s truck window.
“This is just another way to get the word out,”she said.
“If you have information, you can message the Halls at ‘Helpfindcleashindrahall’ on Facebook or contact the Pine Bluff Police Department at 870-543-5300 or 870-730-2090 with your anonymous tip,” according to the release.
