20-year-old Kaylene Oehling was last seen in Etna, Pennsylvania on January 10, 2020. She disappeared after leaving a friend’s house to meet her ex-boyfriend.
Kaylene Marie Oehling was born on August 6, 1999 to parents Tiffany Young and Jason Oehling.
At the time of her disappearance, Oehling lived with her father and stepmother in New Wilmington, Pennsylvania, and with her mother in the Pittsburgh suburb of Etna.
On the evening of January 9, 2020, Oehling was at a friend’s home in Millvale, Pennsylvania, when she left to meet her ex-boyfriend, Michael D. Manno. She was reportedly meeting with him to retrieve some belongings and was expected to return.
On January 10, 2020, Oehling sent a text message to her mother at 1:36 am. She confirmed that she would be at her house at 9:30 am to help babysit her younger siblings.
Oehling never returned to her friend’s home after picking up her belongings, and didn’t show up to her mother’s home the next morning. She has never been heard from again.
Oehling’s mother grew concerned when she didn’t show up to babysit and subsequently filed a missing persons report with the Allegheny County Police Department.
Before her disappearance, Oehling wrote a post on her Facebook account saying that her ex-boyfriend, Michael Manno, had committed another robbery.
Within an hour, Oehling’s social media account was deactivated and calls to her phone were going straight to voicemail. The post was written around the same time she contacted her mother.
Since her disappearance, Oehling’s social media and Electronic Benefit Transfer card have shown no activity. She also goes by the name of Kaylene Young on social media.
At the time of her disappearance, Oehling may have been in her first trimester of pregnancy, but there have been no claims on her insurance that indicate she has given birth.
