    Details of Disappearance

    Dannette and her fraternal twin sister, Jeannette, were last seen at a Pump-N-Shop gas station on the corner of 12th Street and Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard in Augusta, Georgia on March 18, 1990. They left their apartment in the 1800 block of Cooney Circle off Olive Road, en route to visit a family friend in that vicinity. They stopped at a gas station, bought some chips and a drink and then left together. They never arrived at their friend's house and have never been heard from again.

    Not long after Jeannette and Dannette disappeared, their names were removed from the national registry of missing children without any reason given. Their casefile was closed, and the original police records were lost altogether. The investigation didn't begin again for more than twenty years.

    The girls were ninth-graders at Lucy C. Laney High School in 1990. Neither of them had behavioral problems or any history of running away from home. Their younger sister is still alive and looking for them. The Millbrooks sisters' cases remain unsolved.
