Search for missing woman expands
SULPHUR, LOUISIANA - By Justin Hinton, KFDM News
The search for a missing Louisiana woman last seen in Orange has turned into a search for four people, said officers with the Orange Police Department.
Family members reported Tami Higginbotham, 41, of Vinton missing last Saturday.
Police call Joshua Latham, 26, of Orange a person of interest. They questioned him and his girlfriend Monday.
Family members of the girlfriend say the woman called them explaining the police had questioned them.
They say, since that night, their phone calls have gone unanswered. Now police officers are looking for all three adults and the couple’s 2-week-old baby boy.
“It’s scary not knowing what happened to Tami, but I’m concerned for Dusty and the baby,” Frankie Bass, the woman’s mother said. “I mean I love Joshua with all of my heart. I just wish they would come home, and if they know something they need to tell it.”
Higginbotham’s family is worried something bad has happened to their daughter.
“In our hearts, we hope. We hope we have a little glimpse of hope, but we don’t think that she’s alive anymore,” Bill Mauldin, Tami Higginbotham’s dad said.
For now, another couple is sharing in their grief.
Tina Glisson and Randy Faulkner reported their daughter missing in December.
She was last seen in the same gas station as Higginbotham. Several days later, she was found dead.
If you have any information regarding the whereabouts of any of the individuals, you are asked to call the Orange Police Department at 409-883-1026.
