HAMILTON, Ohio (WXIX) - It has been one year since 23-year-old Kara Hyde disappeared from her Hamilton home on Dec. 5, 2021.

“I hope she sees how many people love her and miss her,” Lisa Hyde, Kara’s mother, said at a vigil for her Monday. “I hope wherever she is, she feels that and knows that she’s missed very much, and we all want her home.”

Added Kara’s brother, James Saylor, “There’s an emptiness that can’t be filled.”

No one knew where Kara Hyde was headed when she left her Grand Boulevard home one year ago.

David, who has known Kara her entire life, says she became associated with people who were into heroin and fentanyl.

“Kara’s been a very sweet little girl, and she got hooked up with the wrong people,” he said.

In September, Lisa reported some progress after finding some of her daughter’s things in Crawford Woods.

“We did find a bag with her clothes in there. It’s a bag that I haven’t seen in over a year, and she never left here with any bags. She was planning on coming back. All she had with her was a purse,” Lisa said.

Police say they have no new information to release but they still hope someone comes forward.
