Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Walker was last seen in the parking lot of the the Salt and Pepper Lounge in the 1200 block of Reeves Street in Dothan, Alabama at 4:00 a.m. on October 2, 1992. She had gone there for a night out, never arrived home and has never been heard from again.
It's worth noting that the Salt and Pepper Lounge had a reputation for criminal activity. Two people were shot and wounded there on October 10, just eight days after Walker disappeared, and in an incident in December of that year, three other people were shot and one of them, a security guard, died. The lounge closed in 1993, when its license was revoked due to excessive police calls, including responses to assaults, shootings and burglaries.
Walker left behind four children. It's possible she was abducted from the club. Her case remains unsolved.

A missing person is a person who has disappeared and whose status as alive or dead cannot be confirmed as their location and condition are not known. A person may go missing through a voluntary disappearance, or else due to an accident, crime, death in a location where they cannot be found (such as at sea), or many other reasons. In most parts of the world, a missing person will usually be found quickly. While criminal abductions are some of the most widely reported missing person cases, these account for only 2–5% of missing children in Europe.
By contrast, some missing person cases remain unresolved for many years. Laws related to these cases are often complex since, in many jurisdictions, relatives and third parties may not deal with a person's assets until their death is considered proven by law and a formal death certificate issued. The situation, uncertainties, and lack of closure or a funeral resulting when a person goes missing may be extremely painful with long-lasting effects on family and friends.
Several organizations seek to connect, share best practices, and disseminate information and imAge at the time of disappearance: s of missing children to improve the effectiveness of missing children investigations, including the International Commission on Missing Persons, the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), as well as national organizations, including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in the US, Missing People in the UK, Child Focus in Belgium, and The Smile of the Child in Greece.
