 KETTERING, Ohio (WDTN) – It has been 20 years since a Miami Valley girl disappeared and the case is still unsolved.

Erica Baker was last seen walking her dog near the Kettering Recreational Center on February 7, 1999.

Police and investigators are still looking for her to this day. She would now be in her late 20’s.

Kettering Police believe Erica was involved in a fatal hit and run but her body has never been found. The only person ever convicted in the case was Christian Gabriel, who confessed to hitting and killing Erica with his van.

Gabriel is now out of prison after serving a six-year prison sentence for tampering with evidence and gross abuse of a corpse.

The Kettering Police Department posted about Erica’s disappearance on their Facebook page and they say they will never forget and continue to work on this case until she is found.
