Bright & Beautiful Detroit Mother Vanished After Hand Amputation. What Happened To Alasia Hill?

The Vivid Faces of the Vanished

23-year-old Alasia Hill, the mother of two sons, lived in Detroit, Michigan. Her mother, Charisma Carucci, describes her daughter as a kind and bright young woman, reports Dateline.

Alasia spent most of February 2021 in Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. The hospital placed the young mother in a medically induced coma due to an infection. While Alasia was in a coma, she suffered some complications. The decision was made to amputate her hand, reports Dateline.

When Henry Ford Hospital discharged her, Alasia had stitches in her hand.

Her mother, Charisma, saw Alasia at an appointment on March 10, 2021. After the appointment to have her stitches removed, Alasia went home with her boyfriend, Marlon Billingslea, according to Dateline.

That evening, Alasia called her mom from her boyfriend Marlon's phone. Alasia did not have her own phone, and she wanted to tell her mother how she was doing.

“It was the last time I spoke to my daughter,” Charisma told Dateline. She said that Alasia promised to call her the next day. Alasia never did. “And we haven’t seen or heard from her since.”

The next day, when Alasia failed to call her mom, Charisma called her boyfriend, Marlon.

According to Dateline, Marlon told Charisma that Alasia left and he had no idea where she was.

Dateline reports that Marlon told them that on the morning of March 11, 2021, Alasia walked out of the house.

Marlon said he asked Alasia where she was going, but she would not respond.

Marlon told Dateline he followed her but eventually decided to let her be alone and returned back to the house.

“It’s not the first time she’s run off like this, you know,” Marlon told Dateline. “So I stopped following her… figured she’d be back. But she’s never been gone this long.”

Marlon told Dateline that after her surgery, he wanted to take care of Alasia, but she "always had a mind of her own."

“She’s my best friend, my girlfriend, my everything,” he said. “It’s just a tough time right now.”

Alasia's social media pages went silent on March 6, 2021, reports Dateline. Her family said there has been no activity on them since.

“She was always posting on Facebook and Instagram - she’d always go live,” her sister Shyaira Fikes told Dateline. “Just like me, she’s constantly posting her pictures and was just always talking to people.”

The Detroit police are investigating the disappearance of Alasia, but do not have any leads.

“We’re at a standstill with this case right now,” Officer H. Mackson told Dateline. “We’re doing everything we can, but we still need that missing piece.”

Alasia's family continues to search for her, keeping her case on social media, organizing searches, and hanging fliers throughout the city.

“We don’t know if she actually left her boyfriend’s house and ran into someone else and then something happened,” Charisma told Dateline. “We just don’t know.”

“At this point, I just don’t know what to do next or where to turn,” Charisma told Dateline. “We’re just hoping someone will come forward with something -- something that will lead me to my daughter.”

Alasia Hill was 5'4" and weighed 135 pounds when she vanished.
