Nursing student Kelly Allen was visiting one of her female friends in Berkeley, Missouri on March 13, 2007. The 20-year-old had much to look forward to as she spent a few days at her friend’s apartment. On the day she disappeared, Kelly reportedly went to a job interview that turned out to be successful as she’d scheduled a second interview by the end. She also had her $2,000 tax refund check in her purse—a nice chunk of change that has gone untouched.
According to reports, Kelly Allen first went to her friend’s house on March 7. On the 13th, Kelly’s friend left for work in the morning and all seemed well with the nursing home caregiver. The friend claims she spoke with Kelly during the day and they planned on meeting back up at home later on. However, when the friend arrived at her apartment, Kelly was missing. What aided in the mystery surrounding the circumstances is that Kelly’s personal items, including that $2,000 check, were all left behind. Everything seemed to be in order aside from Kelly Allen not being there.
Since 2007, Kelly’s family has continued their tireless search for the young student. TV One reports that Kelly’s cousin Cody believed he once saw Kelly on a train. He took a photo of the unknown woman but authorities still can’t determine if the picture is of Kelly. Like many families, Kelly’s loved ones hold out hope that she will return home alive.
At the time of her disappearance, Kelly Allen was described as being 5 feet 4 inches tall and approximately 160 pounds. She had brown hair (in micro-braids) and hazel eyes. Kelly had multiple tattoos: a rose on her left shoulder, two brown eyes on her left shoulder, and a half-moon behind her left ear. Both of her ears are pierced. She didn’t drink alcohol or smoke. Kelly was last seen wearing a blue blazer, Apple Bottom blue jeans, and silver sparkly shoes.
Anyone with information regarding this case is urged to contact the Berkeley Police Department at 314-524-3311 or their local authorities.
