Missing Murray Woman's Family and Friends Ask Public for Help Finding Her

Tim Slover

30-year-old social worker Kayelyn Louder has been missing since September 27th. She left her home at the Willows Condominiums in Murray around 7:00pm. and left behind her purse, keys, phone, and dog. Amy

Fugal is Louder’s cousin.

“We’re asking everyone, where you live, to please hang flyers where you live,” says Fugal. “It doesn’t matter if you’re close to her condominium or if you live in a different city. Just please hang flyers wherever you can, to get her face out there even more.”

Those flyers are available on the “Help Find Missing – Kayelyn Louder” Facebook page. Murray Police Lieutenant Kenny Bass told KUER that Louder made three 9-1-1 calls before her disappearance. Her final call was to report an in-progress break-in at her condo. Police arrived on the scene and found no evidence of the crime. Bass says police believe Louder may have been suffering from delusions when she went missing. Tim Asay is Louder’s friend. He says such behavior would be highly unusual for her.

“You know, I can’t explain the phone calls,” says Asay. “I mean, she made them. And whether what was going through her head—I was not there—none of us were. But, as far as this behavior, it’s very not typical of her, and it’s very alarming to us that this did happen.”

A public search for Louder began Thursday afternoon. There is a “Go Fund Me” account online under the name “Bring Kayelyn Louder Home” where donations to the search effort can be made.
