Details of disappearance and psychic work by Brian Ladd (login to view entire case as of May 2020)


Laird was last seen during the evening of August 5, 1994, at her residence near the 10600 block of Nebraska Avenue in Tampa, Florida. She was last seen getting into a black Chevrolet Blazer with a companion, described as a 35- to 45-year-old white male, 5'4 to 5'6 in height, with thinning hair. The man presented himself as a long distance trucker.
Laird has never been heard from again. The circumstances surrounding her disappearance are unclear, but her family believes she may have met with foul play. She has not refilled her prescriptions or cashed any of her monthly Social Security disability checks since her disappearance, and she left $1,000 in her bank account and her 1984 Pontiac 6000. Her clothes and her collection of Miami Dolphins memorabilia disappeared with her, however. Her parents last spoke to her shortly before her disappearance and describe the conversation as normal.
Laird was arrested for drunk driving in May 1994 and was scheduled to appear in court on that charge twelve days after she disappeared, but her loved ones do not believe she disappeared in order to avoid prosecution. She had a troubled life in 1994, which included an alcohol-related arrest record and employment instability, but her loved ones stated she would not have left them without warning and without taking her car or any of her money. Laird's case opened 2018 by Psychic Brian Ladd.
