St. Francois County Sheriff Dan Bullock said on March 2 they received a report on Makayla Curtis, 26, asking the department to check on her.
“She was not entered in as a missing person’s report,” said Bullock. “She is 26 years old and officers were requested to check the well-being on her.”
Bullock said the report is for someone to make contact with her to check on her well-being and make sure she is alright.
He added that since then the family came in and officers amended the report and she is now listed as a missing person.
“Originally they told the officer that she always running off and coming up missing,” Bullock said. “That is why it wasn’t a real big deal. They said it wasn’t unusual for her to disappear for two or three days. But now it’s been longer than that.”
A family member of Curtis posted on Facebook that she is mentally incompetent and unable to make decisions and that she has an appointed legal guardian. They also suggested that anyone who has assisted in her disappearance is subject to being charged with kidnapping.
Anyone with any information on Curtis’ whereabouts is asked to contact the sheriff’s department or local police to report her location.
