It’s been two weeks since a 30-year-old South Side mother of three dropped out of sight.
Latasha Nevitt was last seen walking to a convenience store five blocks from her home in the 1300 block of West 107th Street, CBS 2’s Mike Parker reports.
On Oct. 10, the young dental technician student set out on foot and headed for a food mart and liquor store on 112th street, east of Vincennes. She never got there.
“Powered off the phone – nothing,” her mother, Brenda Morgan, says.
Morgan says Latasha had everything to live for and was doing well at Everest College. She doted on her three children, 10-year-old Ariel and her 2-year-old twins, Brian and Ryan.
“I just don’t see her walking away from life, just walking away from her kids like that,” the mother says.
Chicago Police confirm there has been no activity on her cell phone since she vanished and no word at all from her.
The woman’s father, James Morgan, is puzzled.
“We have always kept in touch with each other,” he says. “I’m telling you, this is not right.”
Latasha’s husband, Isaac Nevitt, is believed to be the last person to see her before she disappeared. He does not believe she’s chosen to drop out of sight.
“No matter what’s going on, we still talk to each other,” he says.
Tears streamed down Ariel’s cheeks as she talked about her mother.
“I just want to see her and I miss her a lot,” the little girl says.
Police searched and used a cadaver dog at the house where Nevitt lived with her husband. There were no signs of any foul play.
Latasha is 5 foot, 4 inches tall and weighs 118 pounds.
Chicago Area 2 Police are investigating. Anyone who can provide information is urged to call 9-1-1 or (312) 747-8274.
