Details of Disappearance
In the early evening of February 23, 2022, Smith made the trip to her mother’s house on Three Mile Road in Charleston, West Virginia.
Thereafter, Smith showered and did some washing. She had a talk with her father and decided to follow through with her scheduled visit to a rehabilitation facility the next day.

North of Point Pleasant, West Virginia, in the Mcclintic Wildlife Management Region (also known as the “TNT area”) on February 25, 2022, police discovered Smith’s abandoned automobile, a gold 2007 Pontiac Grand Prix, among two huge ponds.
Once they found out about the deserted vehicle, her relatives reported her missing to the Mason County Sheriff’s Office.
Investigation of Case
Smith forgot most of her belongings in the car, including the keys which she left on the hood, but she failed to take her cellphone with her. In addition to the fresh food, cold and frozen items were discovered in a grocery bag that appeared to have expired.
Initially, Smith’s ex-husband and mother-in-law found the car in a parking lot close to McClintic’s public hunting area, and then they took it to their own home.
They informed Smith’s parents about the car, who said it wasn’t out of the ordinary for their daughter to leave it there. The vehicle was reportedly parked there sometime between 11:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m. on February 25, 2022, according to authorities.
According to her sister, Smith was with a bad crowd at the time of her disappearance, and she even carried a knife for protection.
The TNT area and other parts of southern Mason County, including Gallipolis Ferry, Apple Grove, Ashton, and Glenwood, were searched by helicopter with the help of the West Virginia State Police and the Mason County Sheriff’s Office, but no trace of Grace could be located.
