Kansas City police ask trail camera owners to review footage in search for Jessica Runions

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Kansas City police continue to search for missing woman Jessica Runions, and released a special request to trail camera owners on Wednesday. Detectives are asking anyone with trail cameras to review footage captured between September 8 and 9, especially in the South Kansas City area.

Specifically, police want to know if a dark SUV or anything out of the ordinary appears on tape on those dates. Runions was last seen the night of Thursday, September 8 when she left a party at about 9:30 with a friend of her boyfriend's, Kylr Yust.

Police found Runions' 2012 Chevrolet Equinox burned out in a remote area near Blue River Road and Bannister a day after her mom reported her missing on Friday, September 9. Investigators searched the area surrounding where the SUV was found without success.

Police wanted Yust for questioning related to the discovery, and he was arrested on family property in Edwards, Mo., about two hours southeast of Kansas City, on September 11. He was subsequently charged with knowingly burning a vehicle, and he remains in custody in the Jackson County Detention Center awaiting a hearing on October 31. He didn't answer reporters' questions about Runions' whereabouts when he was transferred to the jail.

Family and friends have passed out fliers and held fundraisers as they continue to hold out hope that Runions is found.

If you have any information you are asked to call the Kansas City Missing Persons Unit or the TIPS Hotline at (816) 474 TIPS.
