Patrece Lashelle Alston
Missing since June 23, 1998 from Ft. Lauderdale, Florida
Classification: Involuntary

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
On June 28, 1998, Alston get into a green Mazda with alleged serial killer Lucious Boyd, who sat reclined in the passenger's seat and let Alston drive. They were going on a trip to Winter Haven, 200 miles away. Boyd returned the next day, but Alston hasn't been seen since.
Patrece is the daughter of a Broward Sheriff's Office sergeant. Trece Alston lived in a neighborhood near the Boyd funeral home and sometimes hung out with Boyd, but friends say they didn't date.
When Boyd returned the car to his girlfriend on June 29, he told her he'd fallen asleep on the side of the road in Winter Haven and had to be awakened by a state trooper. Fort Lauderdale police say Boyd's account of what happened to Alston is contradictory. He told the cops that witnesses could verify that Alston had also returned, but those witnesses later denied having seen her. Investigators are convinced that Boyd knows where Alston's body is located.
Boyd is currently on Death Row in Florida for the murder of Dawnia Dacosta in December 1998. Police investigators say Boyd is a suspect in as many as 10 unsolved disappearances.
