Kent resident Alyssa A. McLemore was last heard from at about 6:30 p.m. April 9.

A 21-year-old Kent woman has been missing since April 9, according to the Kent Police.

Alyssa A. McLemore, was last heard from about 6:30 p.m. April 9 when her grandmother told her that McLemore’s mother was very ill, according to a Kent Police media release.

As of Friday, police were still searching for McLemore.

McLemore’s mother died on April 12. McLemore has not answered her cell phone since last week.

Police investigators discovered that at about 9:15 p.m. April 10, someone called 911 from McLemore’s cell phone. A female voice was heard asking for help before the call ended.

The phone did not have a Global Positioning System sensor, so the general location of where the call originated is unknown. The phone number listed on 911 records indicated McLemore as the owner of the phone. The phone was out of service on Monday and no longer takes phone messages.

The grandmother of McLemore told police that said she did not know where her granddaughter was and that she did not answer her phone when she called.

McLemore is about 5-feet-1 and 130 pounds.

Police are concerned about the welfare of McLemore because of the 911 call and that she never called to check on her mother.

Anyone who has seen or talked to McLemore since April 9 should call the Kent Police at 253-856-5800 or call 911.
