Keshia D. Sylvester has been missing from Breaux Bridge, Louisiana since September 22, 2017. According to The Charley Project, she disappeared from her home, leaving her purse and cell phone behind. The spaghetti she’d prepared for dinner was still on the stove.
In the days that followed, she was expected to pick up her final paycheck from where she worked at a casino but she never retrieved it. Her daughter’s prom was coming up and she’d was looking forward to helping her get ready for that, but she didn’t return to help her get ready or take photos for the big day. Kesha’s family says neither of these things are like her at all.
There was nothing out of the ordinary about her behavior prior to her going missing. According to her family, she had seemed “confident and happy” and stayed connected with them. She visited her father on a regular basis and had seen her brother as late as September 18. The last post on her Facebook page was on that same day.
After Keshia disappeared, her landlord moved her possessions and the trailer she rented from him within a few days rather than waiting to see if police needed to do a more thorough investigation of it. He may well have destroyed or lost evidence that might have helped in locating Keshia or determining what happened to her.
According to Our Black Girls, it was reported that Keshia was seen in a white truck near Breaux Bridge on October 2, but the information has never been confirmed. Though her case is still unsolved, foul play is suspected.
Keisha is a 34-year-old Black female. She is 5’2” and weighs about 145 pounds. She had black hair and brown eyes. Her ears are pierced.
Anyone with information about her disappearance or whereabouts is asked to contact the St. Martin Parish Sheriff’s Office at 337-394-3071.
