The Disappearance of Alex LaRussa


Alex LaRussa vanished at the age of 25 on December 8th, 2017. Alex went missing just a few months after moving from Great Bend to Salina, Kansas. In July 2017, he injured his leg and ultimately ended up having it amputated. After this injury, he decided to move to Salina to be closer to his family. Alex began using a wheelchair but was also still able to drive and was seen out-and-about on the day he disappeared.

Before vanishing, Alex visited his mother and went to a local Wal-Mart. The last known sighting of him occurred on 9:30 PM on December 8th in the area of Iron and Ohio. He never returned home and has never been seen or heard from again.

On January 14th, 2018, Alex’s car was found abandoned on a farm in New Cambria, Kansas. Many of his personal items were found inside the vehicle, including his wheelchair, clothing, and cell phone. New Cambria is approximately seven miles away from Salina. It’s unclear why Alex’s car ended up in that area, or if he even drove it there himself.

Police have not revealed much about the investigation into Alex’s disappearance, but they have said that they believe someone out there knows exactly what happened to him. He remains missing today. If you have any information that could lead to his whereabouts, please contact the Salina Police Department at 785-826-7210.
