Kent Police Detectives are working with limited information. “We are understandably concerned for Purdy and so is her family. Purdy has no money and no means of transportation, making her that much more vulnerable,” noted Kent Detective Melanie Robinson.

Kent Police ask that anyone seeing or anyone who may know the whereabouts of Jana Purdy contact 9-1-1 immediately.
