August 7, 2018 – On Wednesday, I spoke with KGET reporter, Olivia LaVoice. She brought to my attention her story on the possible connection between missing Baylee Despot and missing Micah Holsonbake that went missing only a month before Baylee went missing. What is interesting is not only that they both went missing from the same town and only a month apart, but Baylee and Micah knew each other. Court documents show other possible similarities and you can Click here to read and watch Olivia’s story and to learn what she found out while researching this story, and how Baylee and Micah are thought to be connected with their disappearance.
Then even more unusual is what has been happening with Baylee’s mother Jane, recently. As she tirelessly walked posting flyers across different neighborhoods, someone in the Rosedale neighborhood, “was taking down her flyers, replacing them with new flyers, and greasing the poles to prevent her from putting them back up,” reports Olivia La Voice. Click here to read and watch Olivias report on this and find out what was written on the new flyers that an unknown person posted.
Who could possible be harassing Jane and why would they be doing that.

Baylee Despot has a mole on the right side of her nose and a scar on her left knee.
Jane, Baylee’s mother posted on Facebook, “Day 100, I started Day 100 just like I did 1st day my daughter, Baylee Cheyanne went missing. Get up early and go post fliers. There is a certain area in Rosedale where Baylee’s fliers get taken down, and the suspected person that I believe who takes them, down went as far to grease the poles! But I didnt let that stop me! THEN the suspected pole greasers drove by me, slowed down, looked right at me laughing, as I am posting fliers. No MATTER WHAT, I WILL NEVER STOP LOOKING FOR YOU BAYLEE AND POSTING FLIERS, WE WILL FIND WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU And Bring Baylee Home.”

Since you’re here
I have a small favor to ask. More people are reading Missing Persons of America than ever and asking for their family member to be shared. I do it because I believe that every single missing person matters, and they all need equal attention. It can’t be done any quicker, and with less boundaries than social media. Last year, I was bombarded daily with more and more cases to share. I found myself falling behind as I work 10 hours a day to feature missing people. Also, the network has grown so large that we are in need of an internet host that can serve the growth, so the website does not go down. Many don’t realize that Missing Persons of America independent, investigative posting takes a lot of time and hard work to produce. Frankly, I need funds. If everyone who reads this website, who likes it, can help, our future would be much more secure. For as little as $1, you can support Missing Persons of America and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
