ISO: Kayla

UPDATE: Kayla has been located! She IS in Ohio and has called a member of her extended family. She is safe. Now, to get her back home with her Mom and brothers!

As a Mom my heart ALWAYS skips a beat to see and hear of kids gone missing or kidnapped or others who runaway. I can ONLY begin to imagine the heartbreak and despair that comes with such an experience for parents, their son or daughter and family.


But it especially hits home when it's the daughter of a childhood friend.


Kayla is 21-years-old. She's 5'4", slender with brown hair and green eyes. She left in the middle of the night with friends, leaving a note behind to not look for her or saying where she was headed. Her note also also said that she felt "thrown away by everyone" and she "wasn't going to deal with it anymore". She didn't say who she was with or where she was going but wanted to "take control of her life" and "it was time for her to go".


Her family is beside themselves with worry and are reaching out to everyone to be on the look-out for their daughter. They don't have much to go on but her brief note.


If you're in the south, in or near Florida, or perhaps in Ohio (as they believe she could be heading to see a man there), keep a look-out for Kayla. Please leave a comment below with any information I can pass along.

  4. I just happened on your blog from Karen @ Homeschool Girls blog.

    My dad worked with Megan Kanka's dad and my husband and I were part of the search party for her.

    I am praying for your friend's daughter's safe return.
