    Police Concerned About Missing Girl Originally Considered A Runaway

    Jan. 18, 2006

    Livermore police are trying to find a missing 15-year-old girl, and they're asking the public for help.

    Police say Kayla Reed was last seen by her mother at their Livermore home on December 3 last year.

    They say originally she was reported as a runaway, but she has made no attempt to contact friends or family, so police say she is now considered a missing person.

    If you have any information, you're urged to call the Livermore police department.

    Missing girl's father says he learned of case on radio

    Trent Reed of Stockton admits to having distant relationship with daughter

    Updated: 01/18/2006

    LIVERMORE - The father of missing Livermore teen Kayla Reed said he had not been notified of his daughter's disappearance and only learned of the case when his mother heard it mentioned on the radio.

    Trent Reed of Stockton admits to having a distant relationship with 15-year-old Kayla, who disappeared from her home sometime after 12:30 a.m. on Saturday, Dec. 3, and was reported missing two days later. ``I've seen her eight or 10 times in her entire life,'' he said on Wednesday. ``The last time I saw her was a year and a half ago.'' Reed expressed disappointment in Kayla's mother and police for not getting in touch with him.

    <SNIP>

    Kayla had an account with myspace.com, an online networking site, officials said. A Web page that appears to be hers shows it was last accessed on Dec. 2, the day before she vanished.

    The title of the page is ``take me away.''Sweeney said he didn't believe the page had generated any worthwhile leads. Sgt. Jim Conley said that in missing person cases, police generally look for some sort of trail - whether it be credit card purchases or phone calls - to follow.

    One of the things we do with missing teens is try and track e-mails,'' he said. Many of them have cell phones.''

    Kayla, however, did not have a cell phone and has made no attempt to e-mail or call family or friends, officials said.

    This girl wasn't reported for 2 days after she disappeared??? I wonder why.
    Did LE check her emails to see if she had been online with one of those perverts? I hope they checked that out.

    I hope that she is found soon and that she is alright. Her dad sure doesn't impress me much. Obviousy he hasn't been a part of her life. Wonder if he pays child support. Also wonder what her relationship is like with her mom.

    I won't be surprised to learn that she left with someone. She left after midnight.

    Kayla Reed was found deceased on January 10th. Her body has just been identified

    She was found in a canal, and had been in it for weeks.

    This scares the HECK out of me... what happened to DNA testing?



    Authorities identified Kayla by comparing a picture of her smiling to the teeth of the found body, Krull said. A torso X-ray was also used to establish her identity.

    Authorities have not yet determined how Kayla died, Krull said.

    I wonder if he was paying child support, or if there was any thing in process about child support.
    I wonder why LE didn't didn't contact the father. Were they discretely watching him, or did they just not bother, since it was only a runaway teen?
    Another question would be, why wasn't she reported missing for two days. That is pretty suspicious in itself.
    And did anyone else notice that suddenly LE switched from a runaway, to a missing person on the 18th and the body is found on the 21st? Sounds like someone is talking to LE. Someone who knows what happened, either directly or indirectly.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    Death Of Livermore Teen May Be Linked To Website

    (CBS 13) LIVERMORE “She talks to older guys on Myspace,” said Kena Roberts, Kayla’s friend.

    ~snip~

    Kayla’s friends say that Kayla spent a lot of time on the computer. Police say that they are investigating the link between her death and a personal webpage she created at myspace.com where she had posted pictures of herself.

    I certainly don't want to start a war or anything but these myspace episodes are becoming too frequent and too overwhelming with the consequences. Parents please limit your children...this could save their lives.

    I was wondering. does not one have to be a signed up member to participate on the " my space " website, I would think that you would have to be a member to make post and have access to the site content. If that is the case, it is a good chance that the person that did this is also a member of the myspace website.

    There is a good article on MSNBC about the dangers of teenagers putting too much information on their myspace blogs, with some good tips for parents:

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/11064451/

    I don't know if it would have changed anything, but it seems that somebody dropped the ball on Kayla's disappearance. If the mother did not report it until the 5th, that was one delay. Then, since she was classified as a runaway, it appears that LE was not overly concerned at first. Her missing posters were not sent out until Jan. 10th. Why did it take so long to classify her as missing? This is the same day her body was found, the 10th. Then on Jan. 18th, 8 days later, the LE starts asking for help. It took until the 21st to identify her. The timing for all this seems strange.

    The NVFC has a blog about these problems in getting her information out:

    My favorite topic: my space.
    I am really worried about that site and what it is doing to young adults.

    I am hoping to get them to at least have some awareness on their site in free advertising about missing persons cases. I will see their execs at a conference in two weeks, as well as other internet execs. Hopefully, we can get a network of free public service announcements on the web.

    Prayers for Kayla's family. I hope they can get some answers. And I hope they pay better attention to the rest of their family from this point forward and take a more active role in each other's lives.
    Rest in Peace to my best buddy and baby, Buster ~ He crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Jan. 3, 2011. I miss you, Buster and love you with all my being.

    LIVERMORE - Several months after the body of missing Livermore teen Kayla Reed was found in a Tracy canal, her mother left the Tri-Valley and police do not know for sure where she is.

    Livermore Police Department investigators have spoken to the slain girl's father only a few times since the girl's death more than a year ago, and believe he is not very interested in their search for her killer.

    The only contact police have with Kayla's family is with the mother's siblings.

    Nevertheless, the investigation continues. There have been no breaks lately, but police remain hopeful.

    "We've had a pretty good idea about what happened in this case and we've been moving forward and heading in the direction of making arrests," Lt. Scott Trudeau said Wednesday.

    This makes me so sad. I do not understand how a parent wouldn't even care about justice for their child. It just isn't good, isn't good at all.

    I am thankful that Kayla is in a better place and I hope that her murderer(s) are brought to justice very soon.
