Ashley Summers Missing, At the time of her disappearance in early July 2007, 14-year-old Ashley Nicole Summers, who had been born on June 16, 1993, was last seen in the neighborhood of her home in Cleveland, Ohio. As Summers has not been seen or heard from since she vanished in February 2023, her whereabouts are still a mystery. There have been no confirmed sightings of Summers since she went missing. The last time anybody saw Summers was on July 4, 2007, at around 6:00 p.m. Her last known location was around West 96th Street and Madison Avenue in New York City. Summers had attended a pool party earlier that day, but she was the only person there.
After spending a few hours swimming in the pool, she made the decision to pay a visit to her aunt Christina, who lived within a walking distance of the pool and was just a ten-minute walk away, but she never showed up. It wasn’t until two days later that anybody realized she was missing. This was due to the fact that she usually stayed with her relatives. According to her great-uncle Kevin Donathan, he had a conversation with Summers in the early morning hours of the day before she went missing. Donathan took Summers’ phone out of her hands and shattered it, robbing Summers of the opportunity to communicate with her loved ones or friends. Summers had a tattoo of a heart with the name “Gene” in reference to Gene Gill, a male whom she was seeing at the time of her disappearance. This tattoo was discovered after Summers went missing.
Because of her history with her family in the weeks preceding up to the time that she went missing, including the defiant act of getting a tattoo without her mother’s consent, Summers was at first thought to have walked away from home. In spite of this, one week after Summers was reported missing, her family joined forces to conduct a search of the local region and the areas immediately around it. After further investigation, the FBI came to the conclusion that she may have been abducted, and that her absence may have been connected to the cases of Amanda Berry and Gina DeJesus, both of whom went missing in Cleveland in 2003 and 2004, respectively.
