Original Post – Misty Hernandez is missing from Owensboro, Kentucky. She was last heard from on February 12, 2019. Misty’s boyfriend, Aaron Russell told the police that he last saw Misty on February 28.
Since Misty’s disappearance, Russell has been arrested for a recent warrant for theft in Daviess County. Russell had state and federal warrants for multiple charges. At this writing he is still in jail.
Melinda, Misty’s sister posted that she is “very disappointed in the lack of concern from police and detectives over my sister Misty Hernandez’ disappearance.” She believes that Aaron knows where Misty is but is not saying.
April, Misty’s other sister told me, that Aaron answered the phone for the number they had for Misty, and he told them he just dropped her off. “When we asked why he had her phone he hung up on us and the phone has been off since,” said April.
April also said there are conflicting stories that Aaron told.
“Aaron told me the last time he seen or talked to my sister was on February 18th, but told the police the last time he seen or talked to her was February 28th.”
As time went by and after Aaron’s arrest and his changing stories, Melinda and April believe Aaron may not have been telling them the truth and may know something about Misty’s disappearance.
Sadly, no media has picked up Misty’s story and the Owensboro Police Dept. has not reached out to the public through the media. So, the more sharing you can do of the story, may increase the chances a tip will come from somewhere.
