Centerville Police: Foul Play Suspected in Woman's Disappearance | News
Centerville's police chief says a missing woman's disappearance is likely foul play.
Chief Sidney Andrews says 38-year-old Kimberly McKenzie was on the phone with her sister Wednesday night when they heard a man tell her, twice, "Get in the back."
Kimberly's sister, Luciana McKenzie, says, "I could hear something in the background. Some guys voice saying "get in the back seat" and she immediately was like hey what's going on? You can have the car. Then her phone dropped."
Centerville police say Macon police recovered McKenzie's vehicle at Key Street and Eisenhower Parkway at around 11 p.m. Wednesday.
According to Chief Andrews the car was abandoned. He says Centerville police detectives plan to meet with Macon detectives.
He says, "We do not have any leads as to why Ms. McKenzie has disappeared or as to where she is at right now. We are just investigating the possibilities of what may have happened."
A news release says 38-year-old Kimberly McKenzie's family reported her missing after she failed to show up at work at the Houston Medical Center Thursday morning.
"She did not report, which is unusual for her," said Centerville Chief Sidney Andrews.
McKenzie was last seen Wednesday in the Centerville-Warner Robins area and around 7 p.m., talked to a friend on the phone about getting her taxes done.
Due to the location of that call, investigators say she may have been in Macon, Andrews said.
Her family begs for her safe return.
Kimberly's mother, Betsy McKenzie, says, "Momma's looking. Momma will never stop looking. Your whole family loves you, and just come home."
She adds, "To the person or persons or who ever just let us have Kim back."
They say she is 5 feet, 119 pounds. She was wearing black cargo pants, a gray Polo hoodie and red-white-and-blue tennis shoes.
Police ask that anyone who's seen her since Tuesday should call Detective Sgt. Chuck Hadden at 478-953-4222.
