What Happened to Missing Mother Latrice Maze?
Latrice Maze, a mother devoted to her five children, loved family get-togethers on Sundays. But the last few Sundays, Maze has been missing from the family gatherings in Grand Rapids, Michigan. No one has seen the 26-year-old since March 19 at about noon. That’s the last reported sighting of Maze on the corner of Division and Burton Streets near her residence. When she didn’t pick up her daughter from elementary school on March 20, her family knew something was wrong. Grand Rapids Police, investigating the case, also confirm Maze missed an appointment. Her family says it was routine for the mother of five to pick up her little girl at about 3:30 p.m. and if Maze couldn’t make it, her mother or her sister would step in. When the elementary school called to report that Maze never showed up, her family knew something was wrong and called police at approximately 1:30 p.m. to report her missing.
No Cell Phone or Credit Card Clues
Since her disappearance, there has been no digital footprint or trace of Maze. Maze’s family says she does have a cell phone but the battery died, so there is no way for police to trace or “ping” her phone. Also, none of Maze’s credit or debit cards have been used. Maze does not have a personal computer, but a source reveals there have been some disturbing threats against Maze posted on Facebook. Details of those threats have not been disclosed. The Grand Rapids Police Department Major Case Team is investigating.
A Missing Mother Who Would Never Leave Her Children Behind
Latrice Maze’s family says she would never just walk away or leave without telling someone and most importantly would never leave her children behind. One of Maze’s children was born with a hole in the heart and miraculously survived to make it to 3-years-old, and now the toddler and four siblings are spending each night missing their mother. Maze’s family fears the worst. Besides prayer vigils and passing out fliers, all her family can do is wait in despair, holding out hope for their beloved Latrice Maze to come home. Latrice’s mother, Wanda Rose, is pleading for the safe return of her daughter. “Whoever has her just bring her home, I want her to come home. She would never leave her kids.”
Maze was last seen wearing black slacks, a white t-shirt, a black jacket and a black, yellow and green-striped scarf on her head.
