Details of disappearance and psychic work by Brian Ladd (login to view entire case as of May 2020)


Kelly was last seen at her house in the 3600 block of Court Street in Sioux City, Iowa on May 18, 2005. When her husband woke up that morning, she was missing. He believed she left sometime between 7:00 and 8:00 a.m. He was initially unconcerned, but started to worry after she missed lunch. He reported her as a missing person at 3:00 p.m. Kelly left behind her purse and all her other belongings, and she hadn't mentioned plans to travel anywhere. She has never been heard from again. Her gold 2000 Honda Accord with the Iowa license plate number 953EDK is also missing; a photo of the car is posted below this case summary.
Kelly disappeared just two weeks before her 58th wedding anniversary. Her husband died in 2009 at the age of 89; in his obituary, it was noted that his wife predeceased him. They had two children. Another family now lives in their former home on Court Street, and their young son claimed he'd seen a "Ghost Grandma" living in the crawl space under in the home. None of the adults have ever seen the supposed ghost.
Kelly was born in Sioux City as the youngest of ten children. She has been declared legally dead, but her case opened 2018 by Psychic Brian Ladd.
