Dedra Michelle Saxon Bracken
Missing since July 14, 1992 from Folsom, St. Tammany Parish, Louisiana
Classification: Endangered Missing
Circumstances of Disappearance
Saxon was last seen on July 13, 1992, at the home she shared with her sister. She caught a ride home from work with her boyfriend's sister. She passed by the sister's boyfriend who was sleeping on the sofa, walked to her bedroom and in the morning was gone without explanation.
Her wallet and a paycheck were left behind. Her mother filed a missing person's report with the St. Tammany Sheriff's Office.
Saxon's mother said Dedra seemed depressed the last time she saw her. She wasn't sure about where her life was leading and she was unhappy with her job.
By 17, she had dropped out of school and was working at Winn-Dixie in Covington where she lived with her sister on Lee Settlement Road.
She had two children, a daughter, who was a 1 1/2 at the time her mother went missing, and a newborn. Saxon signed away her rights to the baby shortly after she was born.
