Editor’s Note: This article is part of a series this month spotlighting missing women in America.

A Maryland mother and her teen daughter disappeared five years ago in south Baltimore, and investigators still have no clue what happened to them.

Joanna Clark was 33 and Shariece Clark was 15 when they were last seen on February 4, 2017. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children considers their disappearance “suspicious.”

Baltimore police said that prior to her disappearance, Shariece was “very social on social media like most 15-year-olds” but all that activity stopped abruptly on the day she and her mother vanished, WBFF reported.

Police said they ‘vanished without a trace.”

Investigators described Shariece as about 5 feet 3 inches tall and 130 pounds with brown hair and eyes. She had a pierced nose in 2017. Joanna is described as 5 feet three inches tall and 140 pounds with sandy hair and hazel eyes. She has tattoos of “Kato” and “Trae” on her arms and “Shariece” on her back.

Police — and the family — suspect foul play may be involved. Joanna Clark was the sole provider for Shariece and six other children.

Last fall, investigators released age-progressed images of the two as they might appear at ages 39 and 20.

Anyone with information should contact 911 or 410-396-2499.
