Kyla Porter went missing at the age of 19 on February 15th, 2008. She was last heard from that evening, when she called her sister from a party in Holiday, Florida. Kyla told her sister that she would be home within the hour, but unfortunately she never returned home and has never been seen or heard from again.
Kyla had recently moved back to Florida from Georgia shortly before her disappearance. Her fiance was jailed on drug charges back in Georgia, so Kyla decided to return to Florida to be with her family. Kyla’s family members said that Kyla would often leave for days at a time in the past, however she never stayed out-of-touch for too long. This time, Kyla left behind her identification, purse, and winter clothing. Due to this, her family members do not believe she is missing on her own accord.
Kyla’s family members are not the only people who suspect foul play. In fact, after her disappearance, a rumor circulated that Kyla attended a party in Moon Lake on the night she vanished. Many believe that a person at the party might have harmed Kyla, however it has never been confirmed that Kyla was actually there. Despite this, investigators suspect that foul play is responsible for Kyla’s disappearance as well.
Kyla remains missing today. If you have any information that could lead to her whereabouts, please contact the Pasco County Sheriff’s Office at 800-854-2862.
