Woman reported missing in Pascagoula found in Hattiesburg

A 24-year-old woman who went missing from her father’s house last week was located Monday in Hattiesburg.

Pascagoula police were searching for Holly Joiner — who was last seen Dec. 7 at her father’s house on Agnes Street — until authorities located her Monday in Hattiesburg.

At about 9 p.m. Monday, Lt. Doug Adams said Pascagoula officers were en route to pick her up. It’s not yet clear how she ended up in Hattiesburg nor how she was found.

The woman was reported missing after she argued with her father, then put a good amount of clothes in a bag and left — something she has done before, police said.

Joiner, who has mental-health issues, was without her medication, according to a news release from the police department.
