Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Curry was last seen in Atlanta, Georgia on May 27, 2011. She had spent the week with her sometime boyfriend, Yusif Mujahid, at his home in the 1400 block of Beecher Street.
He stated they got into an argument and she left angrily at approximately 3:00 a.m., leaving their sixteen-month-old son behind. She has never been heard from again. Curry did not have a car; she had used public transit to get from her sister's home in Duluth, Georgia to Mujahid's home.
A photo of Mujahid is posted with this case summary. He and Curry had a volatile relationship and he was once arrested after he allegedly punched her in the face and threatened her with a stun gun. He claims Curry was also violent towards him and once stabbed him with scissors. He didn't report her missing for three days.
Mujahid and Curry's family don't believe she would have abandoned her son, and her family stated it would be uncharacteristic of her to leave in the middle of the night and without calling anyone.
Curry was born and raised in Portland, Oregon, the youngest of five children. She attended Grant High School, where she played softball and ran track, then moved to Georgia during her senior year to live with her sister.
