BELTON, Mo. — Belton police and the Missouri State Highway Patrol have issued an endangered person advisory as they search for a missing 26-year-old woman.
Jessica Parsons was last seen June 17 when she left her Belton home on foot and supposedly went for a walk to Memorial Park in Belton. She last communicated with her family via text around 5:15 p.m. that day.
On Wednesday, Belton Police Lt. Travis George said investigators determined that Parsons took an Uber from her home around 12:45 p.m. Sunday to a Walmart in Raymore. She then later took that same Uber to the area of Main and Walnut streets in Belton. Officers are now searching that area.
George said officers have spoken to the Uber driver, who confirmed the information. Police have also released photos of the Uber vehicle and Parsons exiting the Walmart from surveillance footage. See the photos below.
Cell phone pings showed activity up to 10 p.m. that day, but nothing after that, police said.
