Diane Cassandra Fields was 44 years old when she went missing from her home in East Dublin, Georgia, more than five years ago. And despite the efforts of local authorities and relatives, her whereabouts are still unknown.
On the evening of Nov. 4, 2014, Fields said she wasn’t feeling well, so she stayed at her residence, located in the 200 block of Celia Drive, while her fiance went to work, according to the Georgia Bureau of Investigation.
When he returned, she was gone, and the house had been burglarized.
Laurens County police officials stated that “the back door had been kicked in, a kitchen knife lay on the hallway floor, and the back bedroom was in disarray.”
Fields was reported missing two days later.
Following Fields’ disappearance, several family members spent weeks searching the East Dublin area in hopes of finding her, but to no avail.
One relative said, “It’s been very hectic trying to get out into the communities with flyers, trying to get the community involved to see if anybody has any information on where she’s at or where she could be at.”
Relatives stated that Fields was a quiet and caring person who kept to herself.
Special Agent Scott Whitley, with the GBI, said: “Our main broad brush picture that we would like to convey to the public on this is that we need any assistance that could be given to help locate Diane.”
Fields is described as an African-American woman with dark hair and brown eyes who weighed around 200 pounds and was five feet tall.
Foul play is suspected in her disappearance.
Officials with the Duplin Police Department consider Fields an endangered missing person.
