Circumstances of Disappearance

Wilda Jean Cross was last seen at her residence at 07:30 A.M., on March 23, 1992. She had been missing for three days before her husband informed her family, who lived in Tennessee, of her disappearance. He did not report her missing due to believing she left with another man.

Not knowing Wilda’s whereabouts and fearing something had happened, Wilda's parents reported her missing in July 1992. Sometime later, Wilda was declared dead by her son.

Wilda was a champion barefoot water skier who lived in Webster Parish and operated Cross’ Jewelry store in Bossier City with her husband. Her maiden name was Neal.
