Police are once again asking for the public’s help and are offering a reward for information into solving the 2015 disappearance of Sharonda Morrison.

ORIGINAL REPORT: Dayton woman’s 2015 disappearance now considered suspicious

Morrison, whose last known address was in Dayton, was first reported missing in December 2015, after she was facing charges in Portsmouth, Ohio, Dayton police Detective Zachariah Hastings said in a press release issued Friday. Morrison’s mother said the last time she had contact with her daughter was in September 2015, a day before she was due in court on the drug charges.

“Ms. Morrison initially thought Sharonda was afraid and was running from law enforcement, but after time passed without hearing from her, she feared (Sharonda) may have been the victim of a violent crime to keep her testimony silent,” Hastings said.

“Dayton Police Detectives have received information that would indicate Sharonda Morrison may be in danger or may have been the victim of violence.”

Sharonda, who is 21-years-old, was 19 when she was last seen by her family. She is described as a black female, five-foot four-inches tall, 150 pounds, with a large tattoo on her chest.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Miami Valley Crime Stoppers at 937-222-STOP.

Your identity will remain anonymous and you could receive a reward of $2,500 if your information leads law enforcement to Sharonda.
