Although, she had previously performed in shows in Nigeria, Ghana and Amsterdam alongside world-class designers like Diana Pinto, Smocky world and Kingsley Ushie and has already been to Portugal and Amsterdam to take part in the International Fashion weeks. This particular trip was to enable her to gain a solid ground and build her status with modeling agencies in all the significant fashion capitals.
Her management claimed they went out of their rented apartment when they got to Paris to purchase drinks only for them to come back to a sealed door. Worried about the safety of Grace, they broke down the door but she had already disappeared taking along her passport and other documents. However, she left her luggage behind.
After the sudden disappearance of Grace, her management reached out to the Paris police to track her down. It was revealed that they saw her as she fled on the CCTV. An extensive investigation was carried out and it was also made known that she had been plotting the scheme with her family all along and it started even before she left Ghana.
