ALLEGHENY, PITTSBURG, PA — FBI believe a missing Brookline resident who vanished after supposedly leaving for a trip to Florida with her boyfriend two years ago, may still be alive and may have been forced into a human sex trafficking ring.
Alivia Kail who is also known by family and friends as ‘Liv’, was 19-years-old when she went missing on March 4, 2011. According to her brother, Lance Kail, the young woman was at home packing for a trip to Florida that she and her boyfriend, Alexander Lorenzi, planned. The following day on March 5th, 2011 Alivia’s mother, Christine DiDiano, called Pittsburgh Police to report her daughter missing after not being able to reach her, which was unusual. PPD told DiDiano that because Kail is an adult, she would have to wait 24-48 hours before a missing persons report can be filed.
Several days later locals witnessed Lorenzi back in Pittsburgh, without Kail. When questioned about her whereabouts, he gives conflicting stories telling Kail’s family that she returned to Pittsburgh, but when Lance Kail, Alivia’s brother, went to speak with Lorenzi to find out where his sister was, his story begins to change and he tells Lance that she decided to stay in Florida. Lance felt something was also and got the Allegheny County Police to file a missing persons report.
When family and police pressed Lorenzi for more information, he cowered away, disconnected his phone line and lawyered up. A search warrant for Lorenzi’s home in Esplen, PA, was issued but nothing related to the disappearance of Kail was discovered. However, they did find drugs and a .22 Ruger that was in fact stolen. He was arrested and charged with receiving stolen property, possession of marijuana with the intent to deliver, and cocaine possession.
Now in a startling new update, FBI agents in Pennsylvania, who became involved in the missing woman’s case, now believe she is alive and is being exploited/forced into a human sex-trafficking ring.
On Tuesday when the news broke out Kail’s mother, Christine DiDiano, told Channel 11’s Alan Jennings that she now has new hope that her daughter may be alive.
“It’s been long, almost two years, but I’m just so hopeful that we could get Alivia back. It doesn’t matter how, I just want her to come back,” Kail’s mother, Christine Kail, said. “I will never give up. So many people who love her just want her back.”
Resolution Hope, a Pittsburgh-based group who are dedicated to finding victims enslaved and trafficked, have teamed up with FBI to discuss the new discovery.
