She has the following tattoos: the name "Sahri" on her upper right shoulder, a rose on her upper left thigh, a heart with the name "Jeffrey" on her right thigh, and a black panther on her the left side of her upper back.

Details of Disappearance
Ayellah was last seen at a medical facility in Hawthorne, California on February 1, 2005. She has never been heard from again. She left her baby daughter in her parents' care.

For several years after her disappearance, both authorities and Ayellah's parents believed she'd run away. She had gotten involved in drugs while she was a student at Hawthorne High School, and she had a history of running away.

In the summer of 2010, police found Ayellah's high school identification in the Los Angeles home of Lonnie David Franklin Jr., the serial killer known as the "Grim Sleeper." A photo of Franklin is posted with this case summary. Several of the Grim Sleeper murders took place during the mid-1980s, then the crimes apparently ceased until 2002, when they began anew.

Franklin was charged with ten of the Grim Sleeper murders in 2010, as well as one attempted murder. He was convicted of all counts in 2016 and sentenced to death. Authorities don't believe these were his only victims, however; they think Franklin may have killed up to 25 women. He died of natural causes on California's death row in 2020.

Ayellah hasn't been declared a Grim Sleeper victim, but authorities continue to investigate her case and possible connection to Franklin. Her disappearance remains unsolved.
