Classification: Endangered Missing

Vital Statistics

Circumstances of Disappearance
Cain was last seen leaving at Bennigan's Restaurant, at 01:30, in the vicinity of the 1300 block of West Bay Area Boulevard and Interstate 45 on August 17, 1997. She had dinner with a group of friends after a performance at Dickinsonís Harbour Playhouse.

Her truck, a Tan Ford extended cab pickup with camper shell, was later located abandoned between Exit 7 and 8 on the shoulder of Southbound I-45 near Hyland Bayou Park in La Marque, Texas. Her wallet and keys were inside.

A 90-94 red Isuzu Amigo was seen in the area of Jessica's truck Sunday morning. It is described at being in "mint condition," with a custom paint job, tinted windows, a rag top and no chrome.

Police are seeking a possible witness to some vehicles which may have been in that area at the time of Jessica's disappearance. He is described as black male, 25-30 years old, with a short afro-type hairstyle driving a purple Neon. He is believed to be affiliated with the music industry. The LaMarque Police Department has also released the description of a white truck, mid to full-size with a white toolbox mounted near the cab and a light bar with rotating yellow-orange lights on the cab. The driver of this vehicle may have information which can aid the police in their investigation.
