Monisha Denise Harrell: Missing Alabama Woman Stopped Communicating With Family

Monisha Denise Harrell was last seen in Bessemer, Alabama, a suburb southwest of Birmingham, on July 19, 2021.

She is still missing today.

Harrell’s last known location was at the Cloverdale Apartments in Bessemer, a complex of two-story apartment buildings with red brick siding, decorative windows with white trim and verdant green grounds, WVTM-TV reports.

Within days of that last sighting, Harrell’s loved ones contacted police after not hearing from or seeing her in what was described as an unusual length of time. Harrell typically checked in with family every so often, according to WBMA-TV.

At the time she vanished, Harrell was 36 years old, 5-foot-6, and weighed about 150 pounds, with black hair and brown eyes, according to the Charley Project. She was wearing black leggings and flip-flop sandals.

Harrell’s ears are pierced and she has multiple tattoos: a butterfly on her lower back and an unspecified tattoo on her forearm.

In October 2021, Bessemer police posted to Facebook that they were still searching for Harrell. It is unclear what, if anything, came of those efforts, according to WBRC-TV.

“There still has been no contact with Monisha Denise Harrell, a 36 year old female, who was reported missing by family. Months have passed since she contacted her loved ones. Please like and share this post so we can bring attention to her disappearance. We believe someone may have information that will help us resolve this Missing Person case,” the Facebook post reads.

Police are seeking any information that would indicate what happened to Harrell or her location. Investigators believe someone knows something that could help solve the case.

To report information, call the Bessemer Police Department at 205-428-3541.
