Tierra Symone Inman
With a history of running away, authorities first listed Tierra Inman, 15, under that category, a runaway. It's been my experience that a person who is categorized as "just a runaway" is not too high on the priority list, especially teens with a history.
As most experts will tell you, teens are either running away from something, or running to something, but either way, they are usually in an endangered situation and, as teens, do not have the ability to make good conscious decisions for themselves.
Tierra was last seen on October 16, 2011 along Stewart St. in Marion, SC and her last contact with a friend was on October 20. Her family says although she has run away from home before, she usually returns within a few days. There has been no contact from her since October 20. They believe she could be in the Florence, Columbia or Myrtle Beach areas.
Authorities are now asking for the public's assistance, and Tierra is now categorized as missing.
Inman has been described as standing 5’5″ and weighing about 175 pounds with black hair and brown eyes. She was last seen wearing light blue shorts and a white t-shirt.
Anyone with information as to her whereabouts should contact the Marion Police Department at 843-423-8616.
