Disabled Army Veteran From St. Clair Found Safe

July 11, 2018 - 8:35 am

ST. CLAIR (WWJ) - A disabled Army veteran from St. Clair who went missing early in the week has been found safe.  

Kyle Kaminski says he last saw his wife Cayla at their home Monday afternoon before she left for a doctor's appointment. She never came home and he hadn't heard from her since. 

On Wednesday night police issued a notice that she had been contacted and "is safe and well."

Authorities said they were grateful for the attention given the matter by the media and the public.

"It was probably around 7, 7:30 when I realized, like, she's not coming home, her phone was off, so that's when I called the police," Kaminski told WWJ's Ron Dewey. "Something just felt like something wasn't right, and then I find out that her doctor's appointment had been canceled."

Police were able to track her cellphone, but have otherwise found no signs of Cayla. 

"When the police came, they got cellphone ping from somewhere out near Davison, Michigan, toward Flint, and that was it. That was the last known location for her," said Kaminski. "We don't know anybody out that way or even in Flint, even that side of the state, I mean, you keep going and we don't know anybody."

Kaminski said his wife suffers from PTSD and depression, and had major surgery for a car crash that happened two years ago. But disappearing without a trace isn't like her, he said. 

"She wouldn't do this. Her babies, I mean, we have two sons. They are her world," he said. "So, I just don't know what's going on."

Cayla was last seen driving a blacked-out 2018 Dodge Ram pickup with tinted windows and license plate DFT 5024.
