Jasmine Pace

Update: Mom of Missing Tennessee Woman Receives Strange Text, Finds Daughter’s Vehicle Abandoned

Tennessee police are asking the public to be on the lookout for a 22-year-old Chattanooga woman who hasn’t been seen in days.

As CrimeOnline previously reported, Jasmine Pace was last seen at around 11:27 p.m. on November 22, near Tremont Street in Chattanooga. Her mother, Catrina Pace, said Jasmine’s vehicle was found abandoned at Mountain Creek Road at 8:27 p.m. on Wednesday, near the Signal View Apartments complex.

Local News 3 reports Jasmine’s car was also reportedly seen at Chattanooga’s Northshore apartment complex, where she was known to be before her mother found her car at Signal View.

Family members said Jasmine may have left town after a death in the family but they’re now concerned since she failed to call or show up for Thanksgiving dinner.

At around 2:30 a.m. on Wednesday morning, Jasmine sent a text to her mother, sharing her location. Childhood friend Bailey Putnam said the text was totally out of character for Jasmine.

“That is so very unlike her,” Putman reportedly said. “There’s not a day they don’t hear from Jasmine, let alone an hour.”

“Her phone has not been active since Tuesday. Her social media has, but not on the device of her phone.”

The social media post is captioned “enjoying Thanksgiving with my baby,” under a photo and several video clips. Putnam doesn’t think her friend made the post, adding that Jasmine would have made the post private.

Putnam added that the photo couldn’t have been recent, since Jasmine has had tattoos on her upper arm and right shoulder for the past few years. The photo appears to have been taken before she had tattoos.

“Our main goal is to find Jasmine,” Putman said. “We have belief she is in Chattanooga.”

Anyone with information on Jasmine’s whereabouts is urged to contact Chattanooga Police at the Crime Stoppers Hotline: (423) 698-2525.
