Circumstances

On August 11, 1992, Tracy A Pickett left her Joplin, Missouri home. She wanted to spend the night with a female friend in the 800 block of Daugherty Avenue in Webb City, Missouri. Tracy’s mother allowed her to go. She thought that her friend lived with her parents and they would be there to supervise; in fact, the girl lived on her own.

There was a party at the residence that night. According to witnesses, one of the guests, a man named Al, kept staring at Tracy all night. He even asked her if she was wearing panties.

Disappearance

Eventually the male offered to give her a ride home to Joplin. He did so so she could change her clothes. He was supposed to return her to her friend’s apartment afterwards. He drove a black van with two sunroofs, louvered side windows and Oklahoma license plates, and witnesses stated there was a gun inside it.

Tracy has never been heard from again. A week after her disappearance, authorities located and interviewed the individual who gave her the ride. By then he had left the state. “Al” was actually named Lowell Andrew Billy, and he had a prison record. Billy claimed he dropped Tracy off outside a pawnshop in downtown Joplin.

Leads?

A female voice Tracy’s mother didn’t recognize left two messages on her answering machine. One message was on the night of August 11 and one at 10:00 A.M. the next day. It was saying Tracy was on her way home to change her clothes. When Tracy’s mother realized she was missing, she went to Tracy’s friend’s apartment and found her daughter’s shoes in the bedroom closet.

Neighbors who lived nearby reported that on the morning of August 12, they saw a young girl running down an alley screaming, “Get away from me! Leave me alone!” At about noon that same day, a witness reported seeing Billy cleaning out a van near Carthage, Missouri. The van matched the description of Billy’s vehicle. But police were unable to verify that the van the witness saw was in fact his.

A year after Tracy’s disappearance, Billy was charged with contest to kidnapping, rape and forcible sodomy in Oklahoma. He eventually pleaded no contest and sentenced to seven years in prison.

Appeal

Tracy A Pickett is one more case of a missing teen who is not a runaway. Her father has died without ever getting answers about his missing child. Will Tracy’s mother and other loved ones have to die without answers? It insults common sense to suggest that Tracy may be alive and hiding from her family and friends. It may be possible that she is being held captive somewhere. If she is no longer alive, who is responsible? It is time for justice and answers. Someone (s) knows something.
