An Alabama Woman Disappeared After Her Boyfriend Dropped Her Off At Home
Nobody has seen Lakira Goldsmith since Nov. 28, 2018, when she disappeared after a date.
Lakira Goldsmith was 20 years old when she disappeared after a night out with her boyfriend.
According to the Charley Project, Lakira — who is called Pigg by her friends — never made it inside her home after her boyfriend dropped her off in the early morning hours of Nov. 28, 2018. Lakira’s grandmother reportedly saw her get out of her boyfriend’s vehicle, but the young mother vanished before she could get inside her apartment along Narrow Lane Road in Montgomery, Alabama.
A maintenance man at the apartment complex allegedly told Lakira’s family that he had loaned her his phone around 2 a.m. on Nov. 28 and then he stepped away for a few minutes. When the maintenance man returned, his phone was lying on some nearby steps, and Lakira was nowhere to be seen.
When Lakira’s family realized she was missing, they filed a report with the Montgomery Police, but Lakira’s mother told the local NBC affiliate that the police have done very little work on solving her daughter’s case since they took the initial report. Lakira’s mother is adamant that she would have never abandoned her young son.
Lakira’s family has worked to keep her case in the public eye, but there have been no updates from the police in the years since her disappearance. A Facebook page dedicated to finding answers about Lakira has recent posts regarding a search for the young woman, as well as posts about other missing people in Alabama.
Lakira is a Black woman who stands about 5’4” tall and weighs around 150 lbs. On the night she disappeared, she was wearing a black velvet knee-length dress and silver jewelry, including a silver lip ring. She would be 24 years old today.

“I miss her and I'm going to keep looking until she gets here,” Regina Benjamin says of her daughter who disappeared at 17 on her way to a flea market.
