Update on Missing Person Kendra Leigh Nystrom NEWS FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE May 04, 2018 CONTACT Detective Jeff Piper 316-425-3356 (Maize, Kansas) - On May 4, 2017, 30-year-old Kendra Leigh Nystrom disappeared after leaving her parent’s home. Over the past year, the Maize Police Department has reached out to the community seeking information about Kendra's whereabouts. With assistance from the Wichita Police Department, Sedgwick County Sheriff’s Office and other agencies and groups, we have followed up on many alleged sightings and searched abandoned buildings, homes, fields and creeks to no avail. We have received information from multiple sources through various means far and wide. Kendra's disappearance was featured as a Crime of the Week by Wichita/Sedgwick County Crime Stoppers in November of 2017. A year has now past and Kendra is still missing and her disappearance remains unsolved. After months of searching, we now believe it is highly probable that Kendra's disappearance was not voluntary and, with regret, believe she is likely deceased. These types of cases are extremely frustrating to law enforcement, but even more painful to the family left behind without any answers. We know that someone knows what happened to Kendra. We need to hear from you. Kendra's family needs to know. We have not kept it a secret regarding Kendra suffering from addiction. There are hundreds of thousands of people across our nation and in our own communities who battle the demons of this illness every day. Some may feel these people created their own problems through their addiction and therefore have little regard for what happens to them. However, many of these folks fall victim to crimes and horrible deaths. These individuals are someone's son, daughter, brother, sister, mother or father. Regardless of a persons' life style, no human being deserves to be harmed by another person. We have seen a lot of recent news stories about stolen pets and tortured and killed dogs that solicit an enormous outrage and anger from the community. Yet, when it's a human life, especially that of an adult who also happens to be an addict, their disappearance or life seems to go unnoticed to many and even more troubling, others may even remain silent and ultimately protect those who bring harm to these individuals. Kendra was last seen around 10:30 AM on the morning of May 4, 2017. She left her parents’ home in the 12000 block of West 29th Street North with only her dog "Frankie", a gray and black Chihuahua mix. She left the house on foot leaving her personal belongings, identification, car and cell phone behind. On May 10, 2017, an area resident recorded what appeared to be some type of altercation between two individuals at the intersection of 37th Street North and 135th Street West, which is approximately a mile and a half from the Nystrom's home. The video showed a female getting out of and running away from a car stopped at the intersection and another individual chasing after her. Both subjects ultimately returned to the car which left traveling south on 135th Street West. Kendra would now be 31-years-old. She is a white female with reddish brown hair. She is approximately 5'4" tall and weighs between 100 and 120 lbs. She also has the initials "R.J." tattooed on her left ring finger. We have many unanswered questions regarding Kendra's disappearance. However, the Maize Police Department is committed to keeping the story of Kendra's disappearance alive until we have the answers to provide to her family. Therefore, we are appealing to the humility and strength of those who have firsthand information and knowledge about Kendra's disappearance to come forward and help bring closure to her family. We need to hear from you. Please call the Maize Police Department at 316-425-3356. You may also provide the information anonymously to Crime Stoppers by calling 316-267-2111 or 1-800-222-TIPS. ###

Due to a lack of interest and registrants the CSI Camp has been CANCELLED. We apologize for any inconvenience or disappointment.

The Maize Police Department extends our heartfelt sympathy to the Wichita Police Department and Officer Woodson’s family for this tragic loss. May Officer Woodson and his son Rest In Peace and we pray for strength and comfort for the family as they grieve.

This morning (Tuesday, April 10) at approximately 10:15 AM, two deceased, approximately 5-month-old, blonde pit bull puppies, one male, the other female, were found in the west ditch of the 4400 hundred block of N. 119th Street West (just south of 45th St. North and 119th St. West).

Is Your Child Vaping? What are they Vaping? A report from the U.S. Surgeon General shows an alarming increase in the use of e-cigarettes by high schoolers. There was a 900 percent increase in e-cigarette use by high school students from 2011 to 2016, according to the 2016 report. While tobacco use among high schoolers went from 4.7 million in 2015 to 3.8 million in 2016, the significant increase in e-cigarette and hookah use has offset the overall progress, according to the 2016 National Youth and Tobacco Survey. The survey also found 1.7 million high school students and 500,000 middle school students had used e-cigarettes in the 30 days prior to the survey’s distribution. A new trend that is starting to surface is marijuana wax, a product that looks and feels like lip balm, but a single application is the equivalent of smoking 15 to 20 joints of pot. The marijuana wax goes by several names including Honeycomb, Wax and Butter. It's made from oils found in pot plants and has a higher concentration of THC than most marijuana products. Users can either eat or smoke it using a bong or electronic cigarette and the drug can also be molded into tiny, round balls. It can also be applied to the lips or gums. Below are a couple of recent articles from Campus Safety magazine and ProjectKnow addressing these growing trends. We encourage parents to read them and to be aware if your child is vaping, what it is they are vaping. https://www.campussafetymagazine.com/safety/vaping-high-school-epidemic/?utm_source=newsletter&utm_medium=email&utm_campaign=content&eid=358973090&bid=2062232 https://www.projectknow.com/what-you-need-to-know-about-marijuana-wax/
