Today marks seven years since Vicki Ellington, a prominent business owner in Kosciusko, went missing.
Ellington was last seen in Kosciusko the morning of Jan. 27, 2011.
Later that day, her vehicle was found at the Wal-Mart parking lot in Louisville, but Ellington was nowhere to be found.
She was reportedly set to meet someone that day, but authorities do not think she ever made it to that meeting.
Surveillance footage from the Walmart security cameras show Ellington leaving her vehicle, a Chevrolet suburban, and walking north towards McDonald’s, but she never returned.
In the day’s following her disappearance, authorities searched the area around Ellington’s home southeast of Kosciusko, but that search provided no new evidence.
According to Mississippi law, Ellington can now be presumed dead since it has been seven years since her disappearance.
