Flora police searching for missing 25-year-old woman after vehicle is found abandoned
UPDATE (Oct. 17, 2018)– Kyra Boehning was found dead in Clinton County.
FLORA, Ind. – Authorities are searching for a missing 25-year-old woman from Flora.
Police said Thursday that Kyra L. Boehning was last seen at about 11 p.m. on Tuesday. She had allegedly taken her boyfriend’s blue 2006 Dodge Caravan minivan from their residence in Flora.
Wednesday morning, sheriff’s deputies reportedly found the vehicle abandoned on a railroad bed at 500 East and 0 North South in Clinton County. Police say Boehning’s identification and other personal items were found, locked inside the minivan but she was not found in the immediate area.
“The uncertainty. The not knowing, not knowing where she is? How she is? What’s happened to her? We don’t even care about the why’s anymore,” said Les Thurston, Kyra’s father.
Officers from Carroll and Clinton counties have been working with Indiana State Police to search the area for Boehning the past two days, but haven’t turned up anything.
Boehning is described as being 5 feet 5 inches tall, about 130 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. Police say she was last seen wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt with “Fat Kid Inc.” printed in black lettering on the back. She was also reportedly wearing denim capris and flat bottom sandals.
Police say Boehning has tattoos on the left side of her neck and the name “Mark” tattooed on the right side of her neck. She also has the name “Greene” tattooed across her stomach.
Police do not believe Boehning has any immediate medical issues, but she is believed to be in possession of a 9mm handgun.
Boehning’s father, Les Thurston, tells FOX59 that his daughter was diagnosed with bipolar disorder about 10 years ago.
“It causes sporadic mood adjustments,” Thurston said. “She can be up one minute, and down the next, sspecially if she doesn’t have her meds, but she’s a very, very intelligent girl.”
Thurston says Boehning doesn’t know anybody in the Frankfort area.
“She has never had any connection to this. She doesn’t have any friends from here. We don’t understand how she could have been in such a remote, desolated place.”
Anyone with information regarding Boehning’s whereabouts is asked to contact Flora police at 574-967-4457 or the Indiana State Police at 800-382-7537.
