Yalobusha County Sheriff seeking information on missing woman

The Yalobusha County Sheriff’s Department is looking for clues to help locate Trinity Harvey, 27, a young woman believed to be missing since early July.

According to Sheriff Lance Humphreys, Harvey was reported missing by her sister in Greenwood on Aug. 24. However, authorities in Yalobusha County were not informed until Monday, Sept. 17.

“We knew nothing about it until Monday and began our investigation Monday,” a department representative said.

Harvey is originally from Minnesota, but moved to Yalobusha County in March after most recently living in Greenwood, a statement from the department said. She was renting a house on County Road 124, east of Water Valley.

“Anybody who has any information about the whereabouts of Harvey, or even think they might have a tip, is urged to contact the Yalobusha County Sheriff’s Department at (662) 473-2722 as soon as possible,” Humphreys said in the statement.

After learning of Harvey’s disappearance, the department immediately launched an investigation, checking her residence and working to establish a timeline to try and pinpoint her last activity in the community. During the course of the investigation, Humphreys said in the statement it appears her EBT card was last used in April and she also missed an important appointment in late June.

Harvey has a three year-old child, but the two have not had recent contact, Humphreys said.

This is an ongoing investigation.
