Akia Shawnta Eggleston
May 7th, 2017 was supposed to be a day of celebration for 22 year old Akia Eggleston. She was eager to reveal the gender of her unborn baby at a special baby shower, and even though her pregnancy was high-risk with her baby in a breech position, she was busy readying herself to welcome friends and family to this joyous event.
But Akia never made it to the baby shower she’d already spent hundreds of dollars to plan. She never made it to her other appointments that week either. When Akia failed to pick her daughter up from a family member’s house, that is when Akia’s loved ones knew something beyond her control had happened to her.
This story will detail everything we know about Akia and her disappearance. Who would want to hurt Akia, a doting mom, beloved friend and family member, and a young lady with dreams for a bright future with a new boyfriend and father of her unborn baby?
Akia’s family has put all their faith in the investigatory sophistication of the Baltimore Police Department. Will BPD bring Akia and her baby home or bring a criminal to justice?
We’ll keep you updated on all the developments going forward, and we would encourage you to join and share the advocacy page created by supporters of Akia.
