Circumstances of Disappearance
Jennifer may be in the company of Brent and Brenttany Hughes, Sarena Natoya Glenn and her sister Robby Ann Floyd.
They were last seen in Fayetteville in December 1996 or January 1997 at 6401 Winter Park Drive. They were seen packing up their van and told neighbors they were moving back to Alabama.
Robby Floyd's aunt called the Cumberland County Sheriff's Office in May 1998 to report Floyd and the others as missing. Robby Ann Floyd was estranged from her family, so the relatives did not think it unusual that they had not heard from her after an extended period.
A then-6-year-old son was not missing. He was with his father.
Investigation has shown that Robby Ann and her husband had been separated and then reconciled before Robby Ann Floyd said she was moving back to Alabama, her home state.
The husband told lawmen that his wife was going to Alabama to see her sick father and that she called him from Sylacuaga, Alabama, when she arrived. He said she was at a motel near her dad's and that she would call the next day, and she never did. No family members in Alabama ever reported hearing from or seeing Robby Ann and her children.
There has been no sign of Floyd, her sister or her children. Robby's vehicle is not registered, and her license is expired. There has been no activity on their Social Security numbers.
