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.
