    Details of Disappearance

    Langwell called her teenage daughter at about 5:30 in the afternoon of July 9, 1999 in their hometown of Beaumont, Texas. Langwell reminded her about dinner plans they had for that evening and said she would return home at approximately 6:30 p.m. after visiting a friend. Langwell's boyfriend began searching for her when she did not arrive at her residence later that night. He discovered her silver 1994 Nissan Altima abandoned in the parking lot of the now-defunct Eckerd's Drug Store at a shopping center on Dowlen Road and Phelan Boulevard or Phelan Avenue at approximately 10:30 p.m. A photograph of the vehicle is posted below this case summary. Langwell's purse and car keys were missing, but her cellular phone, cosmetics and other personal items were inside the car. There was no other sign of her at the scene and an extensive search of the area produced no clues as to her whereabouts. Langwell has never been heard from again.

    Langwell's family members believe that she departed from the pharmacy with someone she trusted. They say it would be highly uncharacteristic of her not to make contact with her daughter for so long, as they were very close. Her loved ones believe Langwell's ex-boyfriend was responsible for her disappearance; the individual had reportedly threatened her and frightened her badly. Before her disappearance, Langwell told her sister to disbelieve it if she heard Langwell had committed suicide. She said she might disappear, and told her sister where to look for her remains. Foul play is suspected in Langwell's disappearance. She was employed at the Mobil Oil refinery in Beaumont in 1999.
