A mother of two and a military veteran is missing and her family desperately needs your help.
Lisa Michelle Hatchell seems to have vanished without a trace. The Willingboro, New Jersey woman had just turned 37, when she went missing on her birthday, July 19th, 2003. That was three years ago! (July 2007, made 4 years)
Police say there was a reported sighting of Lisa Hatchell in the 5400 block of Warrington Avenue in West Philadelphia the night of July 19th. So far, nothing has turned up.
Her aunt says it is just not like Lisa to abandon her mother and two children unless she's unable to make contact.
Katherine Farmer/Missing Woman's Aunt:She's got a little girl and she asks about her mother. Her son, her mother, most of all, her mother's heart is just aching, I'm telling you.
Lisa Hatchell is 5 feet 3 inches tall. She weighs 135 pounds. She has black hair and black eyes.
Her married name was Cotton. She has, in the past, used her boyfriend's last name, Henderson.
There is a small scar under her neck. She has a birthmark on her outer right thigh. There are very small scars on her ankles from insect bites; and she previously suffered a fractured left ankle.
There are pictures of Lisa in her army fatigues. She was in the military for three years. If you have seen her, please pick up the telephone.
Katherine Farmer/Missing Woman's Aunt:All my sister wants is some closure on this. She just needs to know if she is dead or alive.
