Kayla has a scar on her right shin and small chicken pox scars on her right cheek and nose. She has abdominal scars from surgery. Her navel is pierced and her ears are double pierced.
Kayla was last seen on August 11, 2009 in Antigo, Wisconsin. That evening, she was with her 24-year-old friend Kevin Kiercheski, who drove her around while they smoked marijuana. Sometime between 9:00 and 11:00 pm, he dropped her off at her boyfriend's home in Wausau, Wisconsin. He said the house appeared to be dark, and he never saw Kayla go inside. She has never been seen or heard from again. Kayla wasn't reported missing for 6 days. Her parents are separated, and each thought she was at the other's home.
Authorities initially thought Kayla was a runaway, and they stated that her friends seemed evasive. They began to reconsider after weeks without any contact. Her boyfriend, who was 19, denied seeing her that day. The house Kayla went to had actually been condemned and the occupants had moved out while it was being renovated. It is not known if Kayla knew about this.
In October 2009, Kiercheski was arrested and charged with 2nd degree reckless endangerment related to the substance use on the night Kayla disappeared. He hasn't been charged or named a suspect in her disappearance, but he is no longer cooperating with the investigation.
