  • Details of Disappearance
    Kyles was last seen September 8 at her daughter's residence on Southworth Terrace in Kalamazoo. Investigators have been trying to locate Kyles since Sept. 17, when relatives reported that she was missing.

    Investigators found her abandoned Toyota Camry on a busy city street.
    The window had been broken out on September 19 in the 1900 block of Portage Street.

    Renee's clothes and a suitcase were found in the trunk.
    Police have said Kyles was reportedly last seen getting into a black Pontiac Vibe on Portage Street in Kalamazoo and that her disappearance is highly suspicious.
    She had left behind children, grandchildren, and a mother in her 80s. Kyles' family told investigators they usually hear from her by phone at least once a day. Kyles' food-stamp card, the one way police may be able to track her whereabouts, has gone unused. Kyles moved to Kalamazoo from Chicago in 1999 to be closer to her daughter and her granddaughter.
