The loved ones of Natoya Stephens are asking for help locating the mother of two. Once again, finding information about Natoya or her case proved difficult, but it has been shared that the 29-year-old was last seen in Brooklyn, New York, on July 10, 2012.
Details regarding this case are scarce, but agencies state that Natoya and her fiancé were at their residence on the 500 block of Lefferts Avenue when they argued. She has never been seen or heard from again.
Very Little Information Has Been Shared Publicly
What transpired during that fight is unknown, and the name of Natoya’s fiancé has not been mentioned in reports. It was added that Natoya Stephens owned and operated a restaurant on Fulton Street, a business she ran with her fiancé. The status of this investigation is also unclear, but a Facebook Page was set up to help shed light on this case. It looks as if Natoya’s best friend launched the effort. The most recent update was made back in July.
“9 yrs? Can a person really walk away from life; her young children for 9 yrs? The detectives need to revisit this missing person case and go after the folks who are responsible for Natoya Stephen disappearance,” the person wrote in the caption to a flyer of Natoya’s missing person case. Way back in April 2014, another post read, “She is a mom, a daughter, a sister a friend, Grand daughter, a cousin! Please repost!”
