We’d like to think that if someone goes missing that there would be more information provided to the media regarding their case, especially in our social media-driven society. However, when Kenyotha Hoofkin mysteriously disappeared just last year, there weren’t many, if any, news reports about her case.

It isn’t much known about what led up to Kenyotha Hoofkin somehow vanishing without a trace, but here’s what I could gather. Kenyontha was last seen on May 30, 2019, in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, somewhere on the 2900 block of Joyce Drive. It’s unclear if that is where her home was located, if she was visiting a friend or relative, or if she was seen on the street. After that time, no one has had contact with the 39-year-old.

The only non-missing person-related article I could find about Kenyotha Hoofkin was from Crime Stoppers in 2008. In the summer of that year, Kenyotha was wanted for passing bad checks at various stores in Lousiana.

At the time of her disappearance, Kenyotha Hoofkin stood 5 feet 4 inches tall and 160 to 180 pounds. She had brown hair, brown eyes, and a tattoo of a cat on the side of her neck. Both of her ears are pierced, she goes by the nickname “Tunie,” and her middle name is “Mayossa.” The clothing Kenyotha was last seen wearing is unknown.

Anyone with information is urged to contact the Baton Rouge Police Department at (225) 239-7832 or their local authorities.

Please share this story about Kenyotha Hoofkin to reignite the investigation into her case. She is our sister and her life matters.
