Alabama Mom Lakira Goldsmith Still Missing Over Four Years Later, Family Desperate for Answers

It’s been over four years since an Alabama woman Lakira “Pigg” Goldsmith was last seen, and her family is holding on to hope that they’ll soon have answers.

Goldsmith, 20, was last seen on November 29, 2018, on Narrow Lane Road at an apartment complex in Montgomery. Some reports indicated she was last seen speaking with a maintenance employee while other reports said she was last seen talking to some friends or a boyfriend.

“My daughter went missing November 29, 2018,” Lakira’s mother, Marchelle Goldsmith, told NBC 12 last year. “It’s been a nightmare. I can barely think and it’s just hard for me day-to-day, getting out of bed, and just going on with my day.”

Marchelle added that she’s hoping to get the police to get more involved in the case and feels like not enough has been done to help find her daughter.

“When she went missing, I called Montgomery police, they came and did a missing person report and basically, that was it,” she said.

A spokesperson for the Montgomery police previously told NBC 12 that “we cannot comment or conduct an interview on active cases.”

“MPD has investigated and will continue to investigate any and all leads but at this time her whereabouts remain unknown,” Montgomery Police Capt. Regina Duckett added, according to the Montgomery Advisor.

Family members said Lakira needs asthma medication and is the mother of a young son. Her asthma has resulted in hospitalization in the past, although she was careful and took care of herself, family said.

Lakira is described as a Black female who stands 5-feet-5-inches tall and weighs around 150 pounds.

“She’s a very friendly person,” her mother added.

“She could walk in a room and light up the room. She tried to help anybody. She tried to make every one like her. She’s just a sweet and caring person — always wanted to look out for others, even when she was sick. She has severe asthma and it’d be hard for her to breathe most of the time, but she didn’t let that stop her.”

Anyone with information on Lakira’s whereabouts should contact the MPD Det. Stokes at 334-625-3846, Central Alabama Crime Stoppers 24-hour tip line at 334-215-STOP, or via the P3-tips app at
