Karly McKenna Elliott was last seen over three months ago in Corona

Karly McKenna Elliott (pictured) disappeared over three months ago in California

Some reports spell Karly’s last name incorrect. According to the missing woman’s Facebook profile, her last name is “Elliot”

As of Feb 02, 2013 there has been very little updates regarding this care. I check periodically and will post more information once it comes.

Karly Elliott, born August 7, 1982, is a 30-year-old woman who was last seen at her home one month ago in Corona, California in Riverside County.

Karly was supposed to meet a friend on October 25, 2012 but she never showed up.  According to those who know the missing woman, her family spoke to Karly on October 23rd at 7PM. The last time they seen her was later on that night at 11PM, sitting along in her car, a red PT Cruiser which was discovered several days later on October 28th, abandoned.  Attempts to contact her failed and by October 25th they noticed her phone was disconnected and contacted police to file a missing persons report.

According to Seeking_TheLost Facebook page, her vehicle was found with the license plates removed.

According to reports, on October 23, 2012 around 4PM Karly had visited her boyfriend. She was then believed to be in the company of 32-year-old Jurupa Valley resident Alejandro Lopez, who is now being named a person-of-interest, according to a Riverside County Sheriff’s Department report.

Deputies were called to a home at 3:07 p.m. on Oct. 26 in the 6300 block of Frank Avenue, Jurupa Valley where Elliott’s family filed a missing person report stating that the woman had not been seen in three to four days. Her vehicle was discovered abandoned a few days later on October 28, 2012 near Goose Creek Golf Club in Mira Loma. However, Karly remains missing.

A search for the missing woman in the days after her disappearance included the use of police canines and patrol officers across the Jurupa Valley and nearby areas, while relatives passed out fliers and questioned people in north Norco, Mira Loma and Jurupa Valley.

Riverside County Sheriff’s Officials said there was evidence of a struggle at the last place she was seen alive.

“During the investigation, it was determined that a struggle had ensued inside of the residence where the missing person was last seen. The Central Homicide Unit was contacted and assumed the investigation,” the report said.

It is believed that Elliott may have been a victim of foul-play.

An online-user commented on Missing Persons of America on November 17, 2012 under the username Karen Urgirl saying the following:

update 11-17-12 Karly called her mom the night of her disappearance telling her mom that she is being hld against her will and being beaten (w/a gun) and that felipe said he’s going to kill her and dump her body in the desert. It’s also being said karly’s mom is the trimmer for the guy who’s now inarcerated for cultivation of marijuana and (person of interest)karlys mom possibly was stealing from the trees. now its also said that there is a blk man involved in the crop cultivation who also kidnapped her from house on frank ave. and to focus on apts on Iowa ave. n riverside. now its been said that its confirmed that karly s dead . due to the amount of blood (kalys dna) that was found indicates karlys death by gun shot, multiple stab wounds ??? but have no body to prove her to be dead. therefore the search needs to be expanded outside of mira loma. this is some f… up sh.. that happened to Karly and that she died over. alejandro lopez felipe persons of interests. you ever think about what were her lasts thoughts before she died.

Police have labelled her disappearance as ‘suspicious’ and relatives of the missing woman believe she is being held against her will.

Karly is a trained Esthetician but her license in California has been expired since 2011. She is described as a Caucasian adult female, 5’9” tall, 150 pounds with a fair complexion and blonde hair that is sometimes curled or worn straight.

Disappearance of Aspiring Actress (Cold Case)

Tracie Mosley.. Missing 4/17/95.. Reisterstown, Maryland in Missing People, Jane/John Does; Eastern States by Peter Henderson

Pictured; Tracie Lynn Mosley (18) Missing Since Apr.17,1995

State: Maryland Name: Tracie Lynn Mosley (although some reports have spelt her name ”Lynne.”)Date of birth: June 11th, 1976 Date of disappearance: April 17th, 1995 HT/WT: 5’10”, 150-lbs Hair/Eyes: Brown hair, Hazel eyes. Race: Caucasian Gender: Female. Marks/Scars: Fractured right clavicle, fracture right shoulder.

Description: Tracie was wearing a white shirt with a black jacket along with black pants and shoes. She was carrying a black purse as well.

Prior to the disappearance: Tracie Mosley was an 18-year-old aspiring actress who lived at 100 block of Westminster Pike located in Reistertown, Maryland. She came from a troubled past. Her mother was a heroin addict and her parents got divorced when she was in elementary school due to her mother’s addiction. Her mother moved to NY and Tracie lived with her father for several years. According to Tracie’s friends and family, she didn’t get along with her father and eventually moved in with her Grandparents in Reistertown. Both her Grandmother and mother have since passed away.

Photo of Tracie and her father shortly before her disappearance.

Disappearance: On the night of April 16th, 1995, Tracie went to dinner around 10pm at Jasper’s in Resiterstown with a friend. Later that night she planned on meeting up with her ex-boyfriend at the Harryman House on Main Street to hang-out and have some drinks.

The ex-boyfriend told police that he and Tracie left Harryman House at about 2am (04/17/95) and went to her friend’s apartment on Pittston Circle to pick up a six-pack of beer he had left there earlier. After picking up the beer, they went to Franklin High School to sit and talk. He told her he was getting tired and wanted to go home. He says they threw away the rest of their beer and left.

Tracie wanted to go back to her friend’s house on Pittston. During the car ride she asked if she could smoke a cigarette in the car, but her ex told her no. In his statement he told police that Tracie asked him to drop her off a on the corner (intersection) of Pittston and High Falcon Drive so she could walk the short distance back to her friend’s apartment and smoke a cigarette, so he did.

That was the last time Tracie was seen or heard from.

On the night of April 17th, 1995, at approximately 10pm, someone found Tracie’s purse on the curb, at the same corner her ex-boyfriend claimed to have dropped her off at.

The person who found the purse turned it over to police. When an officer went through the purse he found Tracie’s wallet, money, and other personal belongings. Police say the only thing that appeared to be missing from the last remaining piece of evidence was a pack of Tracie’s cigarettes.

Police say they knew something was wrong almost immediately. They began a full investigation: interviewing Tracie’s friends and family, talking with neighbors on Pittston Circle, and taking a close look at the man who saw her last.

Right away, detectives also began receiving strange phone calls from a woman claiming to be Tracie’s friend. The woman fed police wild stories about Tracie. She would call every couple of days and tell them something different. She told them Tracie had run away to be with her mom in New York. She said Tracie was dealing drugs in New York. She even told them Tracie was a manic-depressive and had checked herself into a mental institution.

Detectives followed every lead the woman gave them. Calls to the mental hospital were met with confusion. No one by the name of Tracie Mosley had ever walked through their doors. Tracie’s mother was just as confused.

During interviews, some of Tracie’s friends thought her former boyfriend did something, others theorized to Police that she might’ve left willingly. But those who were very close to Tracie say it isn’t possible. She wouldn’t just leave.
Suzanne Porter had met Tracie in the 8th grade. They both went to the same School and quickly became best-friends. According to Susan, Tracie was ”Intensely charismatic, she was very passionate about creativity and self-expression.”

“She owned a room whenever she walked into it,” Susan said.

Susan said she last saw Mosley while on spring break from her college in Indiana in March 1995, but kept in touch regularly and had just spoken to her two days before she disappeared.
They spoke about their plans for the summer, about possibly spending it at the beach, Tracie had dropped out of Westminster High-School a few years prior to her disappearance, to pursue an acting career, and Susan said she arranged to take a leave of absence from school to help Tracie get her GED.

Those plans are some of the reasons why Porter doesn’t think Mosley would have just taken off without telling anyone, as some of her friends hypothesized to police after her disappearance.

Investigator’s believe Tracie was the victim of foul-play.

Tracie was declared legally dead in 2000. The court assumed she had been murdered. Her case remains unsolved.

Anchor Woman’s Disappearance And Possible Foul Play (2011 Update)

Pictured; Jodi Huisentruit (Photo taken prior to her disappearance, sometime between 1993-1995)

Mason City, Iowa – ​Jodi Huisentruit, 27, moved to Mason City to fulfill her dream-career. She was the whole package,  intelligent, professional and pretty morning-anchor woman for KIMT television news. In the Summer of 95′, Jodi was enjoying a burgeoning TV career. She got a broadcasting degree at St. Cloud State and worked for a time at KSAX in Alexandria. Pretty and personable, she became a well-liked (”favorite”) TV personality when she moved to Mason City to anchor for the morning news at KIMT.

She was originally from Long Prairie but moved to Mason City in 1993 and quickly adapted to her new surroundings, she instantly became a favorite among her viewers and staff.

On the morning of June 27th, 1995, Jodi had overslept. That in itself was unusual and her producer, Amy Kuns, called to wake her up around 4am and according to Kuns, Jodi was asking normal questions and nothing seem to be wrong.  “Everything sounded normal, like I had just woken her up. What time is it?   She asked the question, so I told her Jodi, it’s about ten to four, you need to come in to work.   How much time is left to produce on the show?   I mean, she was obviously thinking, she was aware, she just knew she had overslept and she had to get in to work.   I didn’t hear anything out of the ordinary.   Nothing.”

You can imagine the surprise of staff and producers when she didn’t show up to work at 6am. They put on substitute news anchor and sent one of the staff members to check on Jodi at her apartment. “I was halfway mad because I had to do all of this stuff all by myself, halfway worried because I thought what if she’s laying in her apartment bleeding because she fell down and hit her head on the tub, you know, things like that.   But never once did I think somebody nabbed her outside of her apartment.   Never once did that cross my mind.”

Jodi was nowhere to be found so another producer reported her missing. Mason City Police showed up shortly after and conducted a quick check in and around the perimeter and didn’t find Jodi, they then noticed her vehicle parked and upon further inspection, they noticed what appeared to be blood and contents of her purse strewn on the ground. They also noticed the key had snapped off in the lock as well. Neihbor’s came forward and offered what little they knew: a white van had been seen nearby and a few thought they’d heard screams, but no one witnessed and actual abduction so they didn’t call police.

By noon-time a massive search was being conducted, FBI and the Iowa Division of Criminal Investigation were involved and rescue teams were scouring the countryside. Divers and police dogs covered the Winnebago River and its banks, but there was no trace of Jodi Huisentruit. And instead of the young woman reporting a story on the news, she was now the story in the news.

Thousands of tips, many years of work by police, private investigators, searchers and psychics all lead to nothing, no clues. Her disappearance was even aired on 20/20 and America’s Most Wanted, and ”Dead Air”, a book by Minneapolis author Beth Bednar was written and released in the Summer of 2011.

Jodi Huisentruit was declared legally dead in 2001.

Update: September 18th, 2012 – Man Who Threatened Kamrie Mitchell Is A Suspect In 2009 Disappearance Of Alachua County Woman -

The Suwannee County Sheriff’s Office continues their search for Kamrie Cherai Mitchell, 24, who was last seen in the Branford, Lake City area on Aug. 25 by her family.

As reported previously by the Democrat, an O’Brien man was arrested for reportedly threatening Mitchell and others the night of Aug. 25 at the residence of Mitchell’s father, Thomas J. Mitchell III, where Kamrie Mitchell was said to be that night, according to Sheriff Tony Cameron.

Andrelo Larashard Witcher, 33, of 22601 CR 49, O’Brien, was booked on charges of burglary while armed and possession of a weapon by a felon for entering the home uninvited. No injuries were reported during that incident. Witcher also faces new charges of failing to comply with the sex offender registration and failure to comply with the driver license requirement for sex offender registration for a 2003 case in Duval County.

It was learned that Witcher was a suspect in a missing woman’s case from 2009 in Alachua County, according to Lt. Todd Kelly of the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office who is one of the investigators handling that case.

Witcher became a suspect in the case involving his ex-girlfriend, Heather Ann MacCrossen, who was a former Cafe Risque dancer, according to Kelly. The last time MacCrossen’s family heard from her was in a phone call on Aug. 17, 2007 from a bus station in Gainesville. The family of MacCrossen officially reported her missing in December of that year.

“There seems to be some consistency,” Kelly said. “There’s some alarming behavior from the case here.”

It was believed that Witcher and MacCrossen had a violent relationship.

MacCrossen remains missing.

Kamrie Mitchell was reported missing by her family on Sept. 2. Cameron previously reported that Kamrie Mitchell had been known by family to disappear from time to time if she was upset, but that she always called her family to check in on her small daughter.

Part of the road was still submerged in water that came from Tropical Storm Debby in late June.

Cameron said search teams have canvassed the area on foot, horseback and by sky in an attempt to locate Kamrie Mitchell. He said the search continues and includes interviews with friends and family.

LATEST UP – 09/08/12 -

SUWANNEE COUNTY – TV 20 was the first to interview the family of 23-year-old Kamrie Mitchell, the woman missing in Suwannee County.

Her father was the last person to see her, and he says this isn’t like her.

The family says a friend found Mitchell’s car pushed into water early Wednesday morning, and the sheriff confirms her cell phone had been left behind.

Kamrie Mitchell’s father says it was absolutely a road she would have driven on, but right now it can only be passed via a canoe because it’s flooded, the leftovers from Tropical Storm Debbie.

So why was it in that water? The questions remain, but her sister tells me this isn’t a tragedy, because they are going to find her alive.

 Kyla Ryan: “Do you think finding the car is more helpful or less helpful?”

 

Family: “I think it gave us hope when she wasn’t in it, that she could be somewhere out there.”

The car is an anchor holding this family together, because its something tangible, a concrete clue that has provided the hope they need, to remain optimistic.

Her sister Laura Laggart tells me that her father, “was supposed to wait until the tow truck got there, but he had to pry it open, he had to know if his daughter was in there…thankfully she was not.”

A Facebook friend found the car and told Kamrie Mitchell’s family.

Her sister Kershta Mitchell says they, “swam in that water for hours with sticks trying to find anything they could.”

The car in the water is bringing the whole community together to help.

Jennifer Rousseau Rentschler says, “it’s so wonderful that everyone is coming together…whether they know her or not…she is a person, and she is missing  and everyone who has been searching just wants her to come home.”

Searchers are looking in the area near where the car was found.

Volunteers and sheriff’s deputies were on horses scouring the area, the flooding providing obstacles to the search.

Sheriff Tony Cameron believes foul play could be involved.

 The family, however remains steadfast in their belief that they will bring Kamrie home.

 Family: “We don’t have time to cry. God is the glue holding us together.”

 The family says the car was accidentally towed to their house, and then the sheriff’s office had to collect it.

The sheriff says that the people who own the land on either side of the dirt road are cooperating…and have let them freely search anywhere they need to.

Nobody has seen or heard from her since. Family is convinced foul play is involved stating Kamrie has never gone more than a day or two without contacting her friends and family and without checking up on her child.

It appears the missing woman has had trouble with the law – http://www.mugshotsonline.com/florida/ocala/kamrie-mitchell/58398641 – more than once. A website called ”Mugshots Online” says Kamrie Mitchell got arrested on July 4th, 2012 A.k.a ‘Independence Day‘, in Ocala, Florida for ”Petit Theft” of $100.00. She is listed as being 23-years-old at the time which leads me to believe that the young woman had a Birthday this past Summer.

Another website lists Kamrie again, stating she was arrested May 10th, 2012 for ”reckless driving”. This particular website has more detailed information.- http://florida.arrests.org/Arrests/Kamrie_Mitchell_7905000/

And her latest mug shot is this past August (08/13/12) for probation violation. – http://www.mugshotsworld.com/kamrie-cherai-mitchell-2

Perhaps the young woman got in trouble with the wrong person(s).?

Kamrie’s Facebook also states the young woman was born in Wichita, Kansas. I’m not sure how long ago she moved to Florida. It also stated the young woman graduated Brandford, Connecticut High School, but that could be the result of an error, considering the young woman is from Brandford, Florida.

Her friends and family are very worried about Kamrie Mitchell and are asking the public to keep an eye out for the missing mother of one.

Kamrie Mitchell is described as being 5’3”, approximately 130 pounds with is 5’3″ and 130 pounds with natural blonde hair (frequently changes hair-color, which was dyed dark-brown at the time of her disappearance.) and blue eyes. She has multiple tattoo’s which include, “Kamrie” tattooed on her left foot, “Grams” and a butterfly on her wrist, and “Layla” with a footprint and birthday on her right side.
She is driving a white 4-door 1992 Pontiac Grand Am sedan.
If you have information to locate Kamrie please call Suwannee County Sheriff’s Office at (386) 364-3443 and refer to case number 12-37472

Update On Missing Maine Toddler

Ayla Reynold’s – Missing Since 12/17/2011

Published 8/6/2012 → While police investigating Maine toddler Ayla Reynolds‘ disappearance have declined to say publicly whether items found in the Kennebec River are case-related, the maternal family said Friday they believe the first set of items found April 25 in the sluiceway near the Hathaway Creative Center did belong to Ayla. Previously Ayla‘s mother, Trista Reynolds, told the Kennebec Journal investigators told her the second set of items found May 8 were not Ayla‘s. Police have declined to comment on the river finds other than saying they’ve been sent to the crime lab for forensics tests.

If items belonging to Ayla were found in the river even after the passage of months, forensic testing could link them to the toddler. Ayla’s stepfather, Jeff Hanson believes that’s just what has happened. He wrote on the United 4 Ayla blog Friday and confirmed by email, “Every other week [Maine State Police] has told Trista that they would show her photos of the items found in the damn (sic) for her to identify. And that has not happened to date.”

He said repeat searches in the same general area and the investigators’ lack of follow-up with Trista suggest the items contained Ayla’s DNA.

According to Hanson, investigators told Trista shortly before an official press conference May 31 they concluded Ayla was likely dead based in part on the items found in the dam and the amount of Ayla’s blood in her father’s home. Some of that blood was detected with luminol and some was visible with the naked eye, CNN reported earlier in the investigation.

When police announced Ayla’s presumed death, they declined to reveal specific evidence, instead citing generalities including investigating more than 1,100 leads.

During a river search some two weeks ago, a police boat carrying a water cadaver dog capable of detecting a submerged body canvassed the waters, according to the Morning Sentinel. Police explained the presence at the scene of an assistant medical examiner, saying he was there primarily in his role as a dog handler.

Here’s what investigators are up against when it comes to DNA preservation in evidence immersed in water or cleaned up with bleach:

* An explanation of DNA collection and preservation techniques for law enforcement, published in the National Institute of Justice Journal in 2003, noted DNA evidence at a crime scene can be degraded by exposure to water, bacteria, heat, light, moisture or mold.

* When it comes to human remains found in water, some DNA is preserved in most cases, Cheryl M. Lowe wrote for Livestrong. She explained investigators typically would not rely solely on any DNA preserved but would supplement the find with corroborating evidence like dental records or anthropological studies.

* DNA preservation in human remains found in water is more likely when the water has a high mineral content (calcium, magnesium, carbonates, sulfides and sulfates), Lowe said.

* An anaerobic environment fosters DNA preservation by limiting oxidation and the growth of bacteria and funguses.

* Neutral pH and low oxygen tension also help preserve DNA in water.

* When it comes to articles containing blood, Explore Forensics said blood can survive 10 washings and even chlorine bleaching. Chlorine bleach can remove all visible traces of blood, yet the blood will still be detectable with luminol or phenolphthalein.

* Thorough washing of blood-stained articles in oxygen bleach destroys blood evidence. Oxygen bleach typically fails to fully remove blood stains but destroys hemoglobin which is what luminol and phenolphthalein detect, Explore Forensics said. Forensics teams can still sometimes find undestroyed evidence in article seams.

Ayla was 20 months old when she was reported missing on 12/17/2011 from her Waterville, Maine home. Ayla was last seen sleeping in her bed at about 10 PM Friday night.  Her father, Justin Dipietro, reported her missing Saturday morning when he said he found an empty bed. Waterville police believe that it is possible that Ayla Reynolds let herself out of the house and simply walked away. Or the child was abducted.
