Diamond and Tionda Bradley went missing from Oakland on July 6, 2001, when they were 3 and 10 years old.
Tracey Bradley, the girls’ mother, told authorities she last saw her daughters about 6:30 a.m. before leaving for work at Robert Taylor Park. When she returned home that afternoon she found a note written by Tionda on the back of the couch. The note said they had gone to a nearby school and store. Tracey went to look for her children but she could not locate them. She called the police around 6:30 p.m. that night. The subsequent search for the siblings was the largest known in that city.
Hairs found in the trunk of a van that belonged to Diamond’s father was gathered as evidence, but tests showed the hairs could have belonged to either the girls, or their mother, but it did not get the authorities any closer to finding Diamond and Tionda.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children have released photos of what the sisters would look like now at the age of 26 and 20. the images, hoping they can help bring the girl’s home or reconnect with their family.
Tionda would be 26 and Diamond 20 this year.
Officials launched a large search for the sisters after their disappearance, but they have been unable to determine what happened to Diamond and Tionda Bradley.
Diamond had black hair, brown eyes and a scar on the left side of her head along her hairline, according to the Center for Missing and Exploited Children. Tionda had brown hair, brown eyes and a quarter-sized scar on her left forearm.
