Akia Shawnta Eggleston was reported missing by family members on May 7, 2017. Akia failed to appear at her baby shower and for hours her friends and family were unsuccessful in reaching her. It is reported that the last time anyone saw Akia alive was on the afternoon of May 3, 2017. Akia, a regular social media user, has not had any social media activity since May 3, 2017. Akia lived in Cherry Hill, Baltimore. She was 22 years old and 8 months pregnant with her second child. Akia’s pregnancy was considered high-risk, she was unable to walk long distances and her physician ordered her to bed rest.
It is reported on May 3, 2017, an old friend who is now deceased, drove Akia to a bank in Baltimore’s Inner Harbor neighborhood. At the bank, it is reported that she withdrew a total of $572, which was the deposit for a new apartment for her and the father of her unborn baby.
Akia spent months planning the May 7, 2017, baby shower and gender reveal party and was looking forward to the party, however, she never showed up. According to Akia’s family and friends, Akia’s disappearance was suspicious. When the police searched Akia’s apartment, reports show that it appeared that she had moved out, however, Akia’s family knew that it was physically impossible for her to move anything. Akia’s roommate and family were interviewed by the police, denying that they helped her move anything out of the apartment. According to reports, the cameras at Akia’s apartment were not working during this time, so nothing was captured.
Akia’s family stated, according to reports, their concerts regarding Akia’s unborn baby’s father, Michael Robertson. Michael Robertson never showed up to the baby shower, never contacted anyone when Akia went missing, and never helped search efforts to find her. The police never named Michael Robertson as a person of interest.
A vigil was held for Akia at her apartment, after the vigil, Akia’s bank card was found in the bushes in front of the complex. It is reported that the bank card looked to be in good condition and during the police search was not discovered. Akia’s family and friends believe that the bank card was placed there at some time, by someone during the vigil.
As of 2021, Akia’s family is still actively searching for answers. The Baltimore police believe foul play is suspected and this case remains open and unsolved.
