Missouri mom disappears day after Christmas; wrecked vehicle found in ditch

The family of a young Missouri mother missing for more than three weeks is asking the public to help locate her, KFVS-TV reports.

Madisson Lambert, 24, of East Prairie, Missouri, was last seen on Dec. 26 at around 10:30 p.m.

Police later found her wrecked vehicle in a drainage ditch outside of the small town, according to the Standard-Democrat.

“She’s a mother. She’s a daughter. She’s a granddaughter. She’s an aunt. She’s a cousin,” Marsha Keene-Frye, Lambert’s aunt, told KFVS-TV. “Madisson is a beautiful young woman with a life ahead of her.”

The Mississippi County Sheriff’s Department has reportedly interviewed dozens of people and conducted 14 searches in multiple counties, so far to no avail.

Keene-Frye told KFVS-TV she believes someone knows what happened to Lambert and wants them to come forward.

“One or more people know where Madisson is and know what happened to Madisson,” she told the television station.

Mississippi County Sheriff Britton Ferrell has said that anyone with information about the case should contact authorities, even if the information might be minor.

“Nothing is too small in these cases, so regardless of how inconsequential somebody may think it is, let us know,” Ferrell told KFVS-TV.

Thus far in the case, investigators have processed Lambert’s vehicle for evidence but did not find anything in it or around it that suggests foul play, according to the Standard-Democrat.

Lambert is described as an adult female with blonde hair and blue eyes. She is approximately 5-foot, 1-inches tall and weighs about 106 pounds.

Keene-Frye told KFVS-TV that she wants her niece to know that her family will not give up searching for her.

“We love you. We miss you,” Keene-Frye told the television station. “If you’re still out there, you keep fighting and you don’t quit. We will find you one way or another.”

To report information about the case, call the Mississippi County Sheriff’s Department at 573-683-2111.

East Prairie is about 160 miles south of St. Louis near the Mississippi River and state border with Kentucky.
