Natasha Fugate Jones is a witty, beloved, and devoted mother of two.
Natasha is known as a funny, witty mother of two who absolutely adores her two sons. Natasha was a great person whose kids were the highlight of her life. At the time of her disappearance, Natasha was supposed to be in an inpatient drug rehabilitation facility in Harlan, KY, but she walked away from it and returned to her grandmother’s home where her two sons lived.

Natasha left her grandmother’s home on May 7, 2015 and left a note for her sons.
Natasha was last seen leaving her grandmother’s home on May 7, 2015. Before she left, she wrote out a note to her sons and left it under one of their pillows. According to reports, the note explained that she was going to go find somewhere for the three of them to stay, adding that she loved them and that she would be gone for a few days. She also wrote that she would be back soon.
“That was nothing unusual for her to go with a friend to the doctor or hit the woods or go for a walk. It started getting dark. I told the boys to get ready for bed. When I went to check on them I saw [one of Natasha’s sons] reading a note that his mom wrote to the boys. She told them she would be gone for two to three days and to not be sad. She would be back. I didn’t want to show the boys I was worried. I asked [Natasha’s son] if he had heard from her. He said no.” - Ola Chaffins, Natasha’s grandmother.
Natasha left the home while her grandmother was out at a doctors appointment and was picked up by an unidentified female friend. Some reports state that Natasha left the home to go to a party.
Natasha is left with an acquaintance in a strange area.
According to the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System (NamUs), Natasha is dropped off and left with an unidentified male acquaintance at a reclaimed strip mine. What happens next may be even more strange. According to this male acquaintance, Natasha randomly ran off into a heavily wooded area nearby and never returned. A month later, Natasha was reported missing by her grandmother.
"I just figured she was going to stay somewhere for the night. She didn't come back. It went on for two weeks. I was really worried, but I didn't let the boys know it." - Natasha’s grandmother, Ola Chaffins.
