Kara disappeared from Belton, MO on May 4, 2007.  She was last seen leaving Belton High School.  Kara does not have a car, so she would have either been on foot or someone was there to pick her up.

Kara is 17 years old and would have just finished her junior year in high school.  She is 5' 5", with brown hair and hazel eyes.  As you can tell from the pictures, she is known to change her hair color.  She no longer has braces as seen in some of the pictures.

The morning started out just like any other morning.  Kara decided to walk to school just a few blocks away instead of having her mom drive her.  Later that morning, she called her mom to bring her a book for one of her classes that she had forgotten at home.  Kara also asked her mom to wash her work clothes since she had to work that afternoon after school.  Mom took the book up to school and left it in the office for Kara to pick up later.  At some point after that Kara got the book from the office.

What happened next remains a mystery.

Kara did not come home from school that day and did not show up for work that afternoon.  Her mom and stepdad called her repeatedly and called around looking for her before reporting her missing that evening.

It has been confirmed that the last phone call on her cell phone was about 10:30 that morning.  Since then, the police have determined that either the cell phone has been shut off or the battery has run down.  In addition to that, there has been no activity on her bank account and nothing is missing from her house. All of her clothes, belongings, and IPOD are still in her room.

The police and family have talked to her friends and no one has seen or had contact with Kara since she disappeared.

Three persons reported seeing Kara at a gas station/Burger King in Louisburg, KS along with a young male.  Unfortunately the video surveillance equipment was not in working order and this sighting could not be confirmed. It should be noted that a girl who has been mistaken to be Kara worked at a nearby business at the time of the reported sighting.

May 17th to present
The police department has followed up on leads as they have come in, but none have led them to find Kara.
