Circumstances

It was June 26, 2010, in Selma Alabama. This was the day that Tarasha was last see. She had said good-bye to her mother and left home. It was 10:00 A.M.. She left her home to go to a flea market. On the way there, the teen girl stopped at a yard sale. And she met with a relative who borrowed her cellular phone to make a phone call. It’s not clear whether Tarasha made it to the flea market or not. She never came back home. And she has never been heard from again.

Car Found Abandoned

Tarasha had been driving a borrowed. The car was found abandoned. She had borrowed it from a friend. The car was located on the Cecile Jackson Bypass and one mile from the flea market. And it was facing the opposite direction. The car is described as a gray Mazda tribute. Two windows on the driver’s side were missing. And the driver’s side door handle was broken. According to Tarasha’s family, it is “extremely uncharacteristic” of her to just disappear without contacting her family. Thus foul play is suspected in her disappearance.

According to Family

Authorities do not believe that that Tarasha is still in the local area. This is because massive searches have not yielded any sign of her. Tarasha’s family want everyone to know some things about her. According to them, she smiles a lot and she laughs a lot. And she likes “to talk loud.” They state that her friendly face will always be missed. And they will not give up looking for her.

A public Facebook group has been set up for Tarasha’s search. Her family and friends have not given up in the search for her! In November 2016, a friend of hers voiced her frustration about how missing persons searches searches are so unequal.

I posted this on my personal fb page this morning.. I hope her family and friends don’t mind. My intent is not to offend anyone. I’m praying for y’all and the search continues….
{ Why is it that we’ve all heard about that woman in California that was supposedly abducted heard about it when it happened and daily afterwards up until she was found and are still hearing stories about her even after she was found. BUT there are missing persons all the time that we barely ever hear of… ie. TARASHA BENJAMIN from Selma, Alabama who was obviously abducted her truck found on the side of the highway. Oh? Y’all haven’t heard about Tarasha? She’s been missing for 6 years you know why you don’t know about her? She’s a BLACK girl! Doesn’t her family deserve the same dedication from the media to cover her story as they do over and over again for white families? I think they do! I’m not trying to make anything about this post racist I’m just trying to show how unfair and biased the media is. It’s not fair to ALL AMERICANS! I continuously pray that one day the Benjamin family will find their loved one! She was only 17 when she went missing in broad daylight on the side of the road on a Saturday morning! Maury Povich did a small segment on Tarasha but other than that, that was the extent of her NATIONAL coverage. God bless her family and friends!} :

Appeal

Yes, missing persons searches are unequal. And it isn’t just African-American missing persons vs. Caucasian missing persons. For I know of many Caucasian missing persons whom the system has failed. This includes missing men, especially older men. I have never heard of many of these cases until this year 2017 when I began this site. These kind of missing persons often are found deceased or are never found. They stay missing. The media will not give Tarasha the awareness she deserves. Her case can’t be sensationalized. There is no known scandal attached to it.

Someone knows something that can help bring Tarasha home to her family. Her family offer multiple contact options also. If you have any information about Tarasha Benjamin’s whereabouts, you can contact the Selma Police Department at: (334) 874-2134. The family offer a Secret Witness Line at: (334) 874-2190. You can contact Crime Stoppers at: (334) 877-3530. Finally, the family offer what they call a private family tip line and and can be called at: (334) 419-0624.
