KANSAS CITY, Mo. (TCD) — Officials positively identified remains found last week as a missing woman who has not been seen since May of last year.
According to WDAF-TV, on April 1, Kansas City Police officers discovered skeletal human remains near 95th Street and Blue River Road, and they were positively identified as missing 22-year-old Abbi Schaeffer.
A screen shot from home video footage showed Schaeffer leaving a residence May 23, 2022, wearing a tan crop top, black leggings, and black Nike sandals. Kansas City Police said they were “concerned for Abb’s safety and well-being.”
A bulletin on the National Center for Missing and Unidentified Persons Systems (NamUs) says Schaeffer went to an address in south Kansas City and was seen entering but never leaving. She reportedly got into a dark-colored BMW with an unknown male and hasn’t been seen since.
WDAF reports Kansas City Police will conduct a death investigation with the medical examiner’s office. Cause and manner of death were not released.
