The KBI is asking for assistance from the media and the public in an effort to locate a missing child.
Lana-Leigh Bailey, an 18 month old female toddler, 2 feet tall, 30 lbs., with light brown hair, blue eyes, was last seen on May 1st in Olathe, Kansas on her way to rural Franklin county with her mother, Kaylie Bailey, in black 2007 Toyota 4 door Corolla bearing Kansas Tag 618DAA, with a tag on front saying ‘Shawna’s toy’ and duct tape on passenger side mirror.
Franklin county authorities Wednesday made a positive identification that one of three bodies found at 3197 Georgia Road, rural Ottawa Kansas residence was Kaylie Bailey.
A suspect is in custody and Kaylie’s vehicle has been recovered in Emporia, Kansas but the child is still missing.
Emporia is about 50 miles from an Ottawa farm where Bailey was believed to be headed on the day last week when she and her daughter disappeared. The bodies of a woman and two men were found at the farm this week.
Franklin County Sheriff Jeffrey Richards says that the two men lived at the farm. They were 30-year-old Andrew A. Stout and 31-year-old Steven E. White. He says the other victim was 21-year-old Kaylie Bailey, an Olathe woman who was last seen with her 18-month-old daughter at the farm May 1. Friends have said Bailey and Stout were dating.
Authorities haven’t said how the victims died. Richards says investigators are still trying to find Bailey’s daughter, Lana.
