It was exactly a year ago when Kayla Eitel vanished. Eitel went missing Jan. 4, 2016 from 75 Pershing Ave., in Highland Bend, which is located in Sciotoville. A call to Scioto County Sheriff Marty V. Donini Wednesday went unreturned. However, Detective Jodi Conkel told the Daily Times the case is “still under investigation and we are working on leads.”
Kay Nolan, a missing person advocate, told the Times there is no evidence that “Kayla left there.” Nolan said there has been no contact with family members since she went missing.
At the time, Eitel was first reported missing, Donini said his office received a call from a Pershing Avenue address wanting to make a missing person report. Donini said the woman who placed the call reported that her daughter, Eitel, had not been seen for over a week. Donini said she stated that her daughter was last seen with a friend at 75 Pershing Ave. on Jan. 4, 2016.
At the time, Eitel was described as 4-feet-11 inches tall, weighing 110 pounds, with long blonde hair and blue eyes. Kayla was said to have several tattoos including stars on her thumb.
Nolan said Kayla has a 7-year-old daughter and that she would not just leave her. Nolan said her Mother, Kelly Conley, said Kayla would always stay in contact with her as well.
Donini said anyone with any information concerning Kayla Eitel is being requested to contact Conkel at the Scioto County Sheriff’s Office at 740-351-1091. He said all calls will remain anonymous.
