CLUTE, Texas (FOX 26) - Clute police are asking for the public's help locating missing 21-year-old Erica Celesta Durham who has not been seen since September 1. The Clute Police Department released this information about her disappearance:
This afternoon the Clute Police Department received information from an ex-boyfriend that Erica Celesta Durham (see attached photograph), African-American female, 21 years of age, 5’–7” tall, about 140 pounds, has not been seen since the late evening of Friday, September 1, 2017 after the Lake Jackson Police Department responded to the Tokyo Japanese Steakhouse, 602 HWY 332 E, in reference to a verbal altercation occurring outside the restaurant between her and her ex-boyfriend. They have two children together, a boy 4 years old and a one-year old girl. After the verbal altercation, the ex-boyfriend reported they returned to his residence on Riley Road in Clute, where she reportedly left walking alone sometime later that night without her cellphone and most likely without any money. He reported he has not seen or heard from her since.
Her family that she recently lived with until a few weeks ago in Lake Jackson has not heard from her or seen her since, nor any friends that we are aware of.
She is a former employee of the Tokyo Japanese Restaurant and has not returned or contacted them to pick-up some personal items of value at that location.
She has been entered into the National Crime Information Center (NCIC) and the Texas Crime Information Center’s (TCIC) data bases as a missing/endangered person.
Anyone with any information about her whereabouts or possibly may have seen her, please immediately contact the Clute Police Department at 979-265-6194 or your local law enforcement agency. She reportedly changes her appearance by wearing different styled wigs so please pay particular attention to her facial features when determining if she has been seen.
