26-year-old Kennedy Walton lives in St. Louis, Missouri, but often travels to Belleville, Missouri to visit her mother and sisters. On March 3, 2022, Kennedy left the home of her mother in Belleville, Illinois at 10:30 pm. She was driving her mother's Chevrolet Tahoe and went to the Show Me's Bar & Grill in St. Charles, Missouri. Her roommate saw Kennedy at the bar around 2:00 am. Kennedy never returned to her mother's house. On March 4, 2022, Kennedy's cell phone was turned off around noon.
“She told her she was on her way back over there, but she never did show up,” her aunt, Marco Dean, told Fox 2 Now. “Jacques called her back maybe a half an hour to an hour later. The phone just rang.”
The family reported Kennedy missing. On March 10, 2022, the Chevrolet Tahoe belonging to her mother was found abandoned in St. Louis, Missouri.
“The truck was found two blocks from her house, which is strange to me. It wasn’t there, and then all of a sudden, a neighbor said she watched a man park it and get out,” Marco Dean told Fox 2 Now.
The St. Louis Police Department fingerprinted the truck and returned the vehicle back to Kennedy's mother. Her family has been searching the community and working to bring attention to the disappearance of Kennedy.
“We’ve been running around the neighborhood looking for Kennedy, putting up flyers. We’ve also been putting it on Facebook, Twitter, to see if anybody can just come up with anything. If they’ve seen her anywhere, something because we haven’t heard nothing,” Marco told Fox 2 Now. “There’s like five other Black females missing. That’s weird. That’s not common. I’m thinking it’s sex trafficking the women.”
Kennedy Walton has not been located.
Kennedy Walton is 5'10"-5'11" and weighs 260-270 pounds.
