Circumstances of Disappearance

Thwana was last seen on January 11, 1989 in her hometown of El Dorado, Arkansas. Edwina Austin, her mother, reported her missing the same day. She disappeared sometime after 7AM while she was walking to El Dorado High School from her home on South Marsh Street. Witnesses say that they saw her waiting for the school bus, but she supposedly never made it to school that day. An anonymous tip was submitted in early February 1989 indicating that there was evidence in the Smithville community; the police had searched there previously. Her case remains unsolved.
