The Disappearance of Asia Wilbon

Asia Wilbon (16) vanished from the West Hill area of Kent, Washington on February 12th, 2020. The teen girl had just recently moved to her father's home in Washington from North Carolina. On the evening of her disappearance, Asia left her father's home to go for a walk. She never returned and has never been seen or heard from again. 

Asia's family members and friends began to try and locate her after they noticed she was gone. By the following afternoon, all calls to Asia's phone went straight to voicemail - indicating that it was either turned off or had a dead battery. Asia's father reported her missing on the evening of February 13th. 

After Asia was reported missing, investigators were able to determine that her last phone ping occurred in Federal Way at 1:35 PM on February 13th. Family and friends then began distributing fliers and appealing to the locals in Kent for anyone with information about her whereabouts. Four days later, on February 15th, 2020, it was reported that Asia was seen at the Federal Way Transit Center around 9:30 AM. Her loved ones focused their search on that area, but they were unable to find any sign of Asia. Since then, it appears that the search has hit a standstill.

On February 25th, 2020, the Kent police emailed a local reporter with some information - including that Asia was likely wearing black clothes and that she "may be upset because of her mother's death." Asia had moved to Washington after her mother passed away. Not only did she have to grieve the loss of her mother, but she also had to move across the country - leaving the life she had known for years behind. 

There are very few details about available about the investigation into Asia's disappearance. Years have passed, and she still remains missing. If you have any information that could help locate Asia, please call 253-856-5808 to submit a tip.
