Dateline features case of woman who went missing after moving to California


The family of a 20-year-old Indiana woman who recently moved to California are now frantically searching for their loved one after she lost contact with them.

Lateche Norris was reported missing by her family on Nov. 10, and hasn’t had contact with them in over two weeks, her mother Cheryl Walker told Dateline. According to Walker, Norris checked in often, and two weeks of silence is highly out of character. 

Norris and her boyfriend, who grew up in California, moved to Santa Cruz over the summer. Both were seeking employment as tattoo artists, a burgeoning career for Norris. She returned home to Indiana for Halloween weekend, and then flew to San Diego to meet up with her boyfriend.

“We didn’t love the idea of Teche going so far away,” Norris told Dateline. “But California was the dream for her — an Indiana girl’s dream. So she went.”

On Nov. 5, Walker says her daughter called “from a stranger’s phone.” Norris allegedly said she had gotten in a fight with her boyfriend the night prior and now needed her mother to get her boyfriend’s phone number for her. She did not say why she didn’t have her own phone.

Norris said she would call back but never did, according to her mother. Attempts to get in touch with her boyfriend also went unanswered.

Walker believes Norris’ last known location was a 7-Eleven on Park Boulevard in San Diego. She may have been wearing black leggings, a black sweatshirt and tennis shoes. She has a tattoo of an arrow on her left arm, a dream catcher on her left shoulder and words across her knuckles.

A spokesperson from the San Diego Police Department told Dateline they have an open case, but do not believe Norris is at risk. Her family disputes this characterization, however.

“Something is wrong,” Walker told Dateline. “Now the days are just flying by with no word from her. And we’re terrified.”
