Durham police are trying to locate 42-year-old Melissa Ann Poitra who was last known to have been seen in Durham in late 2005. While DPD investigators were recently looking into an unrelated case, they learned that Poitra has not been in contact with her family for many years and they are trying to locate her.
She was known to frequent the East Durham area. Poitra is described as a Native-American female with straight black hair and brown eyes. She has a tattoo of a rose and a tattoo saying “Missy” on her arms.
Anyone with information on her whereabouts is asked to call Sgt. Garcia at (919) 560-4440, ext. 29326, the DPD’s main desk at (919) 560-4427 or 911.
