The Maize Police Department has received several calls and messages related to news reports out of Texas about a partially dressed female wearing what appear to be broken restraints on both wrists ringing doorbells late at night in the Sunrise Ranch area of Montgomery, Texas. Many believe this female could be Kendra Nystrom who has been missing from Maize since May 4, 2017. In July, we announced that evidence containing Kendra's DNA had been recovered from the Cowskin Creek near where Kendra was last seen. This evidence suggests that Kendra likely drowned and is deceased. However due to the limited amount of evidence that was found, a formal declaration of death cannot be made at this time. A group of volunteers from the Kansas Chapter of Texas Equusearch has been actively involved in the search for and recovery of Kendra over the past few months. They are focusing on recovery of more DNA evidence and skeletal remains. Thank you to everyone who is still actively keeping an eye out for Kendra. We truly appreciate the attention Kendra's case has been given through news outlets and social media and the many tips we continue to receive from around the country. Several people closest to Kendra have viewed the video and the female in the video is not Kendra. We hope authorities in Texas will soon be able to identify the female in the video and provide answers to the public. We encourage anyone who believes they recognize the female to contact the Montgomery County, Texas Sheriff's Office at 936-760-5800.
