FBI Believes Young Woman Missing Since 2011 May Be Victim Of Human Sex Trafficking

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.

MINOT, ND – Reachelle Smith, nicknamed ‘peanut’ by her loved ones, has been missing for six years.  In 2006, she was living with her aunt, who was her guardian,  and a roommate Leigh Cowen, in Minot, North Dakota.

Reachelle went to bed at approximately 10:30p.m on the night of May 17, 2006. The following Morning her aunt went to wake her up. She was gone. Cowen stated that Reachelle would be spending a few days with his mother. At first, the aunt thought nothing of it because of the close bond between her niece and Cowen’s grandmother.

Several days later, on May 22nd, 2006, Cowen Reachelle’s aunt’s van and when she found out, she phoned the police to file 3 missing person reports. One for Reachelle, Cowen and the van.  Cowen was located dead in the van in an apparent suicide, at the Upper Souris National Wildlife Refuge northwest of Minot. Reachelle was not inside the van. Extensive interviews and searches for Reachelle yielded no clues. The deceased roommate is considered a prime suspect in her disappearance but without a confession or a body, some fear this case will never be solved.  She would be turning ten this past September and would be in the fourth grade. A newly made 10th birthday tribute was created for the missing girl.

Family members are holding out hope that one day she will be found alive.

A Myspace page set-up titled: – Bring Reachelle Home is believed to have been created by close family members. The page has poems, photos and a plea asking the public for help. Under the ‘about me’ section, it says:

Reachelle was nicknamed “Peanut” when she was born because she was so small. At times, if you asked her name she would say “I’m Peanut”. It took her family a long time to get her to realize that Peanut was just a nick name. She always knew her family loved her. When it came down to it, it was the family’s love that opened a window for someone to come in. Leigh was considered one of the family. Completely trusted and loved. He used the trust of the family to take Reachelle from a home that had so much love for her. The last time the family saw Peanut, she was 3. No words can describe how the family still aches for their Peanut to be brought home. Peanut’s family asks that if there is anyone who might think they saw her, know they saw her or anything, to please, come forward. Send a message to this site or contact the Minot Police Department at (701)852-0111. Any and all help is greatly appreciated to help bring Peanut home. –From the Family — “We miss you and think about you every day Peanut. No matter of time is going to diminish the love we have for you. We will not stop looking for you until you are home.”

Remember her face. Remember her name. Add one of the “Bring Reachelle Home” banners or a link to this page to your profile, website, forum signature, e-mail signature, anything. Send her photo and story around via e-mail. Please help spread her story, name, and photo across the world.

Thank you so much for your time, help, and kind words. We greatly appreciate it.

Disappearance of Jennifer Marcum last seen at the Denver International Airport

Jennifer Lynn Marcum – Missing since: February 17, 2003 Location: Denver, Colorado

→ On the Morning of February 17, 2003, Jennifer Marcum, 25, drove her brown four-door 1999 Saturn to the federal detention center in Denver to visit her boyfriend, Steve Ennis, who was suspected of being involved with running a large distribution ring for the drug Ecstasy. Shortly after the visit at approximately 11:00am, she was seen near the Denver International Airport. That would be the last time her family and friends would hear from their loved one.

Shortly after she went missing her vehicle was spotted in the airport parking-lot, abandoned. Authorities first initial guess was that she boarded a plane. They searched the area, asking airport employee’s if they’ve seen the young woman, they also checked all flights that departed on 02/17/03 but Jennifer wasn’t on any of them. They looked at her cell-phone records but the phone calls stop abruptly around the same time she disappeared.

Having trouble with the mysteries disappearance, Denver police asked the Federal Bureau of Investigation for assistance but despite dozens of tips, searches, interviews and media publicity, Jennifer Marcum’s remains missing.

FBI investigating Jennifer’s case heard that she may have had plans to travel to the Spokane area of Washington and possibly New York but it is unknown if she arrived at either destination and foul-play is suspected. Many people believe Jennifer’s disappearance is connected to her boyfriend’s illegal activity, but no evidence proves this theory. According to Steve, Jennifer would frequently visit him at the prison and its possible that someone may have known her routine and followed her after the visit. Police do have a suspect in the case but without a body to prove a crime there is little they can do.

Suspect: Scott Kimball, a convicted serial killer who is currently serving 70 years in prison is also a suspect in several other unsolved cases including the disappearance of Jennifer. In November, 2010, Kimball wrote a nine page later to a news outlet proclaiming his innocence in several cases involving murdered/missing woman, saying he wasn’t in the areas at the time the crimes were committed.

Photo of Jennifer with longer, brunette hair, which is her natural color. She changed her style dramatically prior to her disappearance.

Description: Caucasian female standing 5’6” tall and weighing approximately 120 (slim body frame.) She has naturally brown hair (although she frequently dyed it light) hair blue eyes. Both her ears were pierced at the time of her disappearance and she also had breast implants with unique serial-numbers on them. She was wearing a intrauterine device which is used for birth-control.

Aliases: May use the last names Hoyle or Wiggin

Date of birth: June 15, 1977, Jennifer was 25-years-old in 2003 and would be 34-years-old this year.
