The salon worker said at about 7:30 p.m., when the oldest sons haircut was finished, the woman paid for both haircuts and left the store without speaking to anyone. She took the older child with her, but left the youngest son, who was still getting his hair cut, investigators said. The police officer drove the child to Elliss home at 8:45 p.m., but she was not home. He spoke with the neighbors, but they said they hadnt seen Ellis at the home recently. One neighbor told the officer that Ellis was always losing and looking for one of her kids. The officer remained at the house until after 9 p.m. but Ellis didnt return home.
