  • Details of Disappearance
    Kevin Lawya was last seen after he left work on June 28,2012 at 5:00 PM. It was unlike Kevin Lawya to be late to work, so when he didn't show up June 29 to his job as the controller for Point Brittany Condominiums, a fellow Point Brittany employee called Lawya, but got no answer.

    Later, that same employee drove to Lawya's house at 2551 15th Ave. N. His truck, a 2009 Toyota Tacoma, was gone. No one was home. Lawya's dog, an older Labrador type, was inside, starved and thirsty.

    Neighbors said the last time they saw Lawya was late in the evening June 28. The normally easy-going man appeared agitated when they saw his truck speed toward the house about 10:15 p.m. Neighbors told police they heard activity in the home later that same evening. The next morning, Lawya and his truck were gone. Lawya had lived at the single-family house in St. Petersburg's Kenwood neighborhood for more than 20 years.

    Police are now investigating his disappearance as a missing person case, one in which they suspect foul play. Officers found no signs of forced entry to his home.

    Police found Lawya's truck parked at the north side of Union Street S, a dead end at a fence bordering Interstate 275, on July 4. Investigators found signs of foul play inside the truck.
