In August 2013, someone robbed and beat 21-year-old Whitney Nicole Sanders in Jacksonville, Florida. Whitney, who goes by the name Nicky, was still healing from the assault on September 20, 2013, when she went to eat at Kelly's Place, a local restaurant at 1352 Kings Road in Jacksonville, with a friend. Around 1:30 am, she told her friend she was going to run across the street to an Exxon gas station. The errand should have taken Whitney five to ten minutes. Whitney never returned. The friend checked the Exxon gas station across the street looking for Whitney, but there was no sign of her.

Her friend checked their cell phone early the following morning. They realized there was a missed call from Whitney at 5:00 am. Her family checked her residence in the 4100 block of Fairfax Street, but there was no sign of Whitney. That missed call is the last time anyone heard from Whitney. She has never been seen again.

According to the Charley Project, her mother believes the person or persons involved in the robbery and assault on Whitney one month earlier could be involved in her disappearance. Investigators said all efforts to contact and locate Whitney have been unsuccessful, News 4 JAX reports. They are seeking assistance from the public with any information that will lead to the location of Whitney Nicole Sanders.

Whitney Nicole Sanders is 5'5" and weighed 220 pounds when she vanished.

If you have any information, please contact the Jacksonville Sheriff's Office at 904-630-0500.
