UPDATE 7/6/16 – Some new information has come out regarding the case of missing Lynn Messer. According to KMOX news, 6 months before Lynn went missing she told her family that she had attempted to shoot and kill herself, but ended up shooting cats instead. Abram Messer, 34, Lynn’s son says that Kerry Messer, Lynn’s husband did not tell the police about it when she went missing. Also, Lynn apparently left a note apologizing, but short of saying she was going off to commit suicide.
“I’m sorry to put you through this… I love you from the bottom of my heart,” the note read in part.
Original story: Lynn Messer, 52, of Bloomsdale, Missouri, was last seen on July 8, 2014 in Ste. Genevieve County.
Kerry Messer, Lynn’s husband is a lobbyist for the Missouri Family Network, and has a Facebook page with photos of Lynn whom he calls “Ma.”
Kerry said that on July 8, it was raining and Lynn was already out of bed around 4 a.m. Kerry though he heard a washing machine or sewing machine in the distance, but he did not get out of bed. During that time, Lynn walked away leaving her wallet and cellphone and passport behind. When Kerry got up, he searched around the home and thought she may have gone to their son’s home, but she had not. He then took his truck and searched until he decided he should call the police. Lynn hasn’t been seen since.
Lynn and Kerry lived in a remote area and Lynn would have had to walk about a mile or cross a dry creek bed and go up a mountain side in order to make it to a highway.
Lynn married Kerry when she was 16 and she breed and trained dogs, and gardened and made several visits to Ecuador.
Kerry wrote an open letter in response to his wife’s disappearance:
“We wish to make it clear to our extended capitol family that we offer an open invitation to ask whatever questions are on your mind. It is okay with us for those of you that are a part of this amazing community to say whatever is on your heart. On one hand we would prefer to have an open conversation rather than leaving you feeling inhibited about expressing your thoughts. Do not be concerned about offending in any way. In the long run it would be better for us to talk openly rather than to pretend things are ‘normal.”
