While walking her brother and Aaron to the parking lot, Tyarra told Aaron that she had plans to meet a friend named Travis. Travis allegedly lived in the apartment complex, and Tyarra claimed she would be back within an hour.
Aaron had never heard the name “Travis” but did not question his girlfriend. So, while Tyarra left on foot to meet Travis– because she did not have a car– Aaron and her younger brother went to go play video games.
Then, one hour later, at 9:30 p.m., Aaron went back to Tyarra’s grandmother’s apartment to check on his girlfriend, but she was nowhere to be found. He also tried texting and calling her numerous times, but Tyarra never answered.
Aaron then returned the following day and found that his girlfriend had never returned home. So, in a panic, he informed Tyarra’s grandmother, who contacted her mother, Danielle.
Around this time, the family realized that Tyarra had left her purse behind and, moreover, who “Travis” really was.
After Danielle learned her daughter was missing, she logged onto Tyarra’s Facebook account and learned that “Travis” was an alias– and he was actually Tyarra’s ex-boyfriend.
So, by 8:00 p.m. on January 8, 2016, Tyarra was officially reported missing to the Greensboro Police Department.

Authorities immediately launched a search of the Stoneybrook Apartment Complex, but no clues were uncovered. Police also interviewed “Travis”– whose real name has never been revealed– and he claimed to have sat with Tyarra in his car while they spoke for about half an hour.
After combing through Travis’ car, though, authorities were again left with no new information or discoveries.
