Millbrook Police are seeking help in finding Anita LaFay Washington, 49, a black female from Deatsville who was last seen by a family member at her Hilton Circle home around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday.
Her family filed the report today. Washington has not been seen or been in contact with family members since that time. At this time, it is not known what type of vehicle, if any, Washington may be driving or as a passenger. Washington's vehicle, which was being repaired, is accounted for.
Millbrook police have checked Washington's residence, interviewed family and friends, as well as checked with local medical establishments and other facilities with regard to anyone that may have been in contact with Washington in the past 24 hours. At this point all inquiries have met with negative results. Millbrook Police Department is asking for the public's assistance in locating her whereabouts. Anyone that may have seen Washington over the last 24 hours or that is aware of her current whereabouts is asked to contact the Millbrook Police Department at (334)285-6832 or they can utilize the secret witness line at (334)285-8500.
Millbrook Independent readers may remember Washington, who was shot Oct. 24, 2008 by her then-estranged husband at Prattville Christian Academy as she dropped her son off at school. The former husband, Irilmoskomazerella Washington, remains in jail on attempted murder. Even after he was in jail, Washington continued to get threats from his family members, Washington told the Millbrook Indy in later interviews about the shooting.
She is a personal friend of columnist Sarah Stephens and her husband, Dr. Mel Stephens, as he served in the Air Force with her at Maxwell Air Force Base before her retirement several years ago.
"We are asking for the public's assistance in this case," Millbrook Police Chief P.K. Johnson said. "Our detectives in our Criminal Investigations Unit have been working diligently on this case all day. Having spoken to numerous family members, friends, acquaintances and neighbors, one thing is apparent. It is not common for this lady to go anywhere without telling someone, be it family members, friends or neighbors. At this time our investigators have no evidence of foul play, nor are there any reasons to believe Ms. Washington is in danger of any kind. That stated, we share the families concern because it is so unusual for Ms. Washington to be out of contact with her family. We are requesting that anyone who has had contact with Ms. Washington or knows where she may be, to contact the Millbrook Police Department." There numbers are 285-6832 or you can call the secret witness line at (334)285-8500.
