Vanished: Search for 5 women missing in Tacoma includes possibility of serial predator


There are more than 1,800 missing persons statewide and 146 of those are women in Pierce County. Investigators are taking a regional approach to try to solve these cases because serial offenders don’t pay attention to law enforcement jurisdictions.

They are starting in Tacoma where five women and teens went missing between 1994 and 2010.

All of them worked as prostitutes in the areas around Puyallup Avenue and in downtown Tacoma.

“I can’t say that we have any evidence linking these five cases together but it’s certainly possible that one or more of these women were victims of some serial offender who may be in prison already or may be in custody for another crime or it could be somebody that we don’t know about yet,” said Det. Lindsey Wade with Tacoma Police.

Detectives do not believe that Green River Killer Gary Ridgeway is responsible for any of these disappearances.

Missing: Danielle Mouton
Missing: Jennifer Enyart
Missing: Debra Honey
Missing: Tami Kowalchuk
Missing: Helen Tucker

Helen Tucker went missing in 1994. Her case was originally assigned to the Green River Killer Task Force who eliminated Gary Ridgeway as a suspect but that can’t be said for all of them.

“A couple of the others, we can’t rule him out because we know that he was out and active at the time these girls went missing,” said Det. Wade.

There are more than 1,800 missing persons statewide and 146 of those are women in Pierce County. Investigators are hoping to talk to anyone who knew the women or teens or who they associated with at the time they went missing. They also want to know about any violent encounters they may have had.

“They might not know their names but they knew a nickname or they knew a vehicle description. Even something small can open up an investigation,” said Det. Wade.

Detectives are looking into the backgrounds of the missing women and teens to try to make connections with some of their associates.

“It’s a very small area of the state to have that many similar missing person cases,” said Gordon.

If you have any information that can help solve these cases, call Tacoma Police or the Washington State Patrol’s Missing and Unidentified Persons Unit at 1-800-543-5678 or email them at MUPU@WSP.WA.GOV

Missing: Federal Way woman says mom was 'amazing' before she disappeared in Tacoma
By David Rose
Published December 1, 2017

TACOMA -- Tiffany Sylvester remembers the good things about her mom. She was giving, Tiffany says. An amazing dancer. And she taught her three children well.

"Everything about me is from her," Tiffany said.

But a little before Tiffany's mom Debra Honey disappeared in 2002, she noticed a slide.

"I knew she was using, and I knew I needed to do something to get Jasmine and Jordan out of the situation," Tiffany said.

Tiffany, then 17, says her mother was barely 80 pounds when Tiffany took her two younger siblings out of her mom's care. She says if she knew then it was the last time Tiffany would see her mom, she would have acted different.

"The last thing I said to her was horrible," Tiffany says. "I said, 'You're never going to see these kids again. and you're an addict.'" From daughter to mother

Debra was a prostitute who frequented the Puyallup Avenue corridor, Tacoma Police Detective Lindsey Wade says.

Little is known about what happened to her.

"We don't know if she got into a vehicle with an unknown subject or may have hooked up with an unknown acquaintance," Det. Wade said. "We just don't know."

Wade says whatever happened to her, it isn't good. "Something bad happened to these women," Wade says.

Tiffany, Debra's daughter, looked after her two younger sibling once her mother disappeared. A kid herself, Tiffany says the care she gave was unparalleled.

"I've raised these children," Tiffany says. "I've totally given up hope."

Still, Wade and other police hope to learn what happened to Debra for closure. There are still people out there who know something, and can help bring closure to Tiffany and her siblings.

"I would love to find them and I think that would be amazing," Det. Wade said. "I would love to be able to call some of these family members up and tell them that we've come to a resolution and hopefully we've been able to solve the mystery and find out what happened to their loved one."

Debra is considered a missing or kidnapped person with evidence of foul play. She was born on March. 30, 1961. She is 5'7", and weighed 97 pounds at the time of her disappearance. She was last seen at 3565 East K Street.

If you have any information that can help locate her, call Tacoma Police or the Washington State Patrol’s Missing and Unidentified Persons Unit at 1-800-543-5678 or email them at MUPU@WSP.WA.GOV
