On January 22, 2004, investigators say Andrea Cotten vanished from Corsicana, TX. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children (NCMEC) created an age enhanced photo of what she may look like at 34-years-old. It's possible, according to NCMEC, she may be with two males.

In early 2021, Andrea's mother Pollyanna Cotten, spoke out to the Corsicana Daily Sun on the 17th anniversary of her disappearance,“I just talked to detectives and they are still working the case. If anyone one knows anything please come forth. Her mama misses her and loves her very much.”

Former Corsicana police detective Darrell Waller also spoke out about his work on the missing case to the local publication, “She was last seen leaving her cousin’s house on Cottonwood Circle in the company of two Hispanic males." They were last seen traveling in an older model pickup truck, Waller adds.

Over the years, investigators reportedly checked many databases, but she has not surfaced in any capacity. Reports said in 2004, it’s possible Andrea dyed her hair black. She has a tattoo of a cross on her left ankle.

If you know anything, please contact Corsicana Police Detective Sgt. Dan McAnich at 903-654-4911 or call 1-800-THE-LOST.
