Missing Valerie Coates
Coates, circa 1988; Terrence Mobley
Missing Since 04/09/1988
Classification Endangered Missing
Age 22 years old
Height and Weight Unknown
Distinguishing Characteristics African-American female. Black hair, brown eyes.
At the time of her disappearance, Coates was a cadet with the Warner Robins Police Department. She left behind a young child.
When authorities pulled up the kitchen floor of the Hawkinsville home, they found bloodstains which were consistent with Mobley's story of how Coates met her death. He claimed he buried Coates in a wooded area off Industrial Boulevard in Hawkinsville, about four miles from where she was killed.
Investigators dug in the designated spot for days, but couldn't find any evidence. It had once been a pig farm, and it flooded in 1994; police believe heavy rains may have washed the remains away.
Authorities stated in 2010 that they expected charges to be filed in Coates's presumed homicide; however, no charges have been brought against anyone in connection with her case. Foul play is suspected in her disappearance due to the circumstances involved.
