Friday marks 25 years since Haltom City resident Traci Lynn Kelley was reported missing on Oct. 15, 1996.

Kelley was last seen at her residence on Bertha Street in Haltom City around July 1996. Haltom City police said in a Facebook post Thursday that she wasn’t reported missing until months later by her family in Minnesota, who had been unable to reach her for weeks.

Kelley, a 30-year-old mother of three, had worked at Pancho’s Restaurant in the Richland Plaza Shopping Center.

In the post, Haltom City police said Kelley had been a victim of domestic assault and her disappearance is suspected to be a result of criminal activity. Her purse, identification and other personal belongings were left at her residence.

Kelley is described as 5 feet and 5 inches tall, with blue eyes and brown hair. At the time of her disappearance, she was around 120 pounds and wore glasses, according to police.
