Houston police are asking for the public’s assistance in locating Ms. Tierra Lechall Adams.
Ms. Adams, 25, of 6302 Calton Cove, is nine months pregnant and her expected due date is today (Feb. 14). She is described as a black female, 5 feet 6 inches tall, black hair, brown eyes, and weighing 200 pounds. An updated photo of Ms. Adams is attached to this news release.

HPD Homicide Division Sergeants J. Padilla and T. Huynh and Officers C. Abbondandolo, D. Buse and M. Robau reported:

Adams was released from a correctional facility on January 25, 2008 and was picked up by her mother and boyfriend, Mr. Neriah Roberts. Adams stayed with Roberts from January 25 until her disappearance on January 28.

On January 29, Tierra’s mother tried to reach her and spoke to Roberts, who stated they had a fight late Sunday night/early Monday morning and he decided to take Adams to her mother’s home in Stafford. During the ride, the argument continued and Roberts stated he “put
Tierra out of the car” sometime between midnight and 1 a.m. in the area of 12200 North Houston Rosslyn.

On Feb. 1, Adams’ mother filed a missing person’s report with HPD due to concern that she had not spoken to her daughter since January 27.

The immediate area was searched by an HPD helicopter and, at the request of family members, various volunteers have searched as well. No sign of Tierra has been reported.

Roberts gave an initial statement to an investigator that was consistent with what he told the family but he has refused to cooperate with any other aspect of the investigation.

On Feb. 8, the HPD Homicide Division was asked to assist with the investigation. Since that time, a number of people have been interviewed. The Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) detained one of Robert’s current girlfriends when she presented
multiple identifications and was found to be in the country illegally.

No proof has been found that would suggest Tierra Adams is the victim of a crime. Investigators from the HPD Homicide and Juvenile Divisions, as well as officials from the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) and ICE have all assisted in the effort to find Tierra. Considering the
facts surrounding her disappearance and the length of time involved, investigators are very concerned for her well being. The family, including both Tierra’s immediate family and the prospective grandparents, are very concerned and praying for her safe return.

Anyone with information on the whereabouts of Tierra Lechall Adams is urged to call the HPD Homicide Division at 713-308-3600 or Crime Stoppers at 713-222-TIPS. Should Tierra be the victim of a crime, Crime Stoppers will pay up to $5,000 for information that leads to an arrest
and conviction. In addition, certain funds may be available for information leading to her current location.
