Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Senegal was last seen leaving his girlfriend's home in Crowley, Louisiana at 7:00 p.m. on November 7, 2000. She was cooking supper, and he told her she would be back in ten minutes, but he never returned and has never been heard from again. He was last seen driving a maroon-four door Oldsmobile Regency with the license plate number I0Y719. It was later found abandoned and burned in Orange County, Texas.
It's not uncharacteristic of him to leave without warning, and as a result he wasn't reported missing until January 2001. But he has never been gone for this long and he always stayed in touch with his mother. His case remains unsolved.

A missing person is a person who has disappeared and whose status as alive or dead cannot be confirmed as their location and condition are not known. A person may go missing through a voluntary disappearance, or else due to an accident, crime, death in a location where they cannot be found (such as at sea), or many other reasons. In most parts of the world, a missing person will usually be found quickly. While criminal abductions are some of the most widely reported missing person cases, these account for only 2–5% of missing children in Europe.
By contrast, some missing person cases remain unresolved for many years. Laws related to these cases are often complex since, in many jurisdictions, relatives and third parties may not deal with a person's assets until their death is considered proven by law and a formal death certificate issued. The situation, uncertainties, and lack of closure or a funeral resulting when a person goes missing may be extremely painful with long-lasting effects on family and friends.
Several organizations seek to connect, share best practices, and disseminate information and imAge at the time of disappearance: s of missing children to improve the effectiveness of missing children investigations, including the International Commission on Missing Persons, the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), as well as national organizations, including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in the US, Missing People in the UK, Child Focus in Belgium, and The Smile of the Child in Greece.
