Her father Godfrey Tata, owner of a healthcare business, has been a resident of Houston since the early 1980s, and until recently spends more time in Nigeria, and a few months in Houston.

    The U.S. Marshals are offering up to $25,000.00 in rewards and Houston, Harris County, Texas Crime Stoppers are offering up to $5,000.00 in rewards for information thats leads to the arrest and return of Jessica Tata to Texas. Someone could earn up to $30,000.00 for finding Tata and calling the police with the information that would lead to her arrest.

    How did she get into Nigeria? Did she already have a Visa to enter Nigeria or did
    she have a Nigerian Passport? Also, have the authorities determined who
    paid for her airline ticket?

  3. Adanna says:

    I believe she panicked and in that blurred moment she decided to run. I also suspect that some people that she may have called upon for advice may her encouraged to run. This is truly a tragedy for everyone including Jessica and her family. I pray that God in his infinite mercy console the bereaved families and also touches Jessica's heart to turn herself in and come tell us what happened and then shall the healing process begin for all.

    Arrest her mom! Who else could have aided her, and made connections with the dad to get her out of the country.
    Arrest the dad whenever (if he tries to return to)
    These 2 definitely know where she is. She didnt grow up in Nigeria, so clearly didnt organize the trip on her own.

      The girl may have panic and ran away. She was wrong and should be back to explain what happened and pay her dues.
