Distinguishing Characteristics Caucasian female. Blonde hair, green/hazel eyes. Barber bleached her hair at the time of her disappearance and as a result, her roots were darker than the rest of her hair. She has scars on her arms, legs and head from impetigo. Her ears are pierced.
Details of Disappearance Barber left her job at the Bobbie Magees Club in Gulfport, Mississippi at approximately 1:30 p.m. on May 31, 1984 and got onto a cab with a female co-worker. She was very intoxicated at the time. The cab took them to the Holiday Inn on Highway 90 in Gulfport and Barber's co-worker got out and headed towards the hotel. When the cab driver tried to get Barber's attention, he realized she had passed out in the backseat.
The cab driver asked Barber's coworker what to do with her, and the coworker simply told him to do whatever he wanted. She left, and the cab driver tried to wake up Barber. She regained consciousness and said, "Where am I? I want to be with my baby." She got up, left the cab, and began walking towards the beach.
The cab driver drove away, then realized Barber had left her purse in his car. He went back to the Holiday Inn and found Barber's co-worker, who told him to turn the purse into the police. He did.
Barber's case remains unsolved. The circumstances surrounding her disappearance are unclear.
