UPDATE – April 3, 2021 – Found Safe.
Natalie Mercer Hicks, 50, from Wood River Illinois has been missing since March 29, 2021. She was last seen on a surveillance video on Monday morning at the Casino Queen in East St. Louis, Ill. getting on the MetroLink. She was heading west into St. Louis City.
This doesn’t make any sense she would get on the Metrolink as she was at the Casino Queen with her sister. No one knows why she wandered off and got on the MetroLink or why she didn’t tell anyone she was going to do that.
Natalie’s sister, Deana posted, “My sister, Natalie has been missing since Sunday morning. I can’t get into the why or how, but she was last seen in East St. Louis at the Casino Queen.”
Hicks is 5’5″ and weights approximately 150 pounds. She has brown eyes with blondish/red hair. Both of her ears are pierced. At the time she went missing she was wearing a grey and white striped hoodie, blue jeans and Ugg boots.
If you have any information on her whereabouts, please call he East ST. Louis Police Department at 618-482-6742.
