Prior to her disappearance, Salau spoke at a Black Lives Matter protest organized in response to the death of George Floyd. She was last seen on June 6, the same day she wrote a detailed Twitter thread alleging that a man had sexually assaulted her that morning.
“Anyways I was molested in Tallahassee, Florida by a Black man this morning at 5:30 on Richview and Park Ave,” she wrote. “The man offered to give me a ride to find someplace to sleep and recollect my belongings from a church I refuged to a couple days back to escape unjust living conditions.”
On June 9, the Tallahassee Police Department posted a flyer classifying Salau as a “missing adult.”
