A 16-year-old Versailles girl is still missing after the vehicle she’s believed to be in was spotted Tuesday night in Columbia. Versailles City Marshal Chad Hartman says authorities are still looking for Kiaira Lazae Burris. 20-year-old Antonio Jerel Primer, Junior is no longer considered a possible suspect.
“Kiaira was seen at approximately 7 p.m. at a residence in Columbia, Missouri. The residents at the Columbia address had no information as to where she was going or who she was with.”
Last night Burris’s mother received a phone call from an unknown number. Burris was crying and described as “distraught.” An unknown male voice was heard saying, “I hid the body,” several times before the call disconnected.
Hartman says Kiaira’s mother also received a text early this morning.
“She received a text from an internet app advising her that it was Kiaira and she was fine and at home,” said Hartman. “Officers were dispatched to Kiaira’s home address, where officers on the scene spoke with family members and they had not seen Kiaira.”
Burris is described as a black female, age 16, height 5’7″, 175 lbs, brown hair, brown eyes, with a tattoo of a rose outline on her left arm, last seen wearing a brown and tan sleeveless sundress, black sandals with pearls, and carrying a black backpack containing clothes.
Authorities are also looking for a dark gray or dark green Chevrolet Malibu with tinted windows and front end damage.
Anyone with information on Burris, Primer, or their vehicle is asked to contact the nearest law enforcement agency or the Versailles Police Department at (573) 378-5481.
