*Los Angeles, CA – A Los Angeles music and television executive, Debra Hughes has gone missing. Ms. Hughes has worked with the likes of Tyler Perry, Stevie Wonder and SnoopDogg and has worked for Lionsgate Films/Television and Twentieth Century Fox.
Ms. Hughes lived in Orange County, CA and had recently told friends she was moving to the California city of Lancaster. Ms. Hughes, sources say, had recently experience a fight with cancer and a relationship break up and was seeking a new start. She told friends she was moving to Lancaster and had actually already started working on projects in that area via her Los Angeles based company, CB Music Group, Inc.
It seems the last known communication with Ms. Hughes was around January 18th, even though there have been other unconfirmed reports of friends being in contact with her as late as February 10th. Family members have been hard to find and those with which contact has been made are distant relatives and cannot confirm contact with Ms. Hughes in the recent months. Ms. Hughes social media sites, company website, cell phone, office line and emails are all either disconnected at this point or have given no response to repeated attempts by friends to contact her.
At this point there are hundreds of Ms. Hughes friends across the country and even some in the UK, Germany, and Japan, seeking her whereabouts. Close friend and confidant, Adrienne Lawson says, “I have known Debra for 6 years and she has always remained consistent with her business and a full time friend. No matter what was going on in her life, good or bad Debra is a talker and is never one that likes to be alone. This is the major point in the puzzling disappearance of Debra and why I and the hundreds of other friends will not stop looking for her until she is found.”
A Facebook page has been set up to collect leads and information on the disappearance of Ms. Hughes (www.facebook.com/whereisdebrahughes). Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department has confirmed the filing of a Missing Persons Report and Detectives are now working the case.
