    Alexis Scott was at a party in her hometown of Peoria, Illinois on the night of Friday September 22, 2017 when she vanished. Partygoers confirmed to police that Alexis was at the party, but nobody knows exactly when she left or if she left with anyone. The 20-year-old was reported missing five days later by her mom, April Allen. April told Dateline her worries grew when she realized her daughter hadn’t posted anything on social media, which she usually did daily. There have been no named suspects or persons of interest in the case. The family, along with community members, run the Alexis Camry Scott Facebook page to gather tips and organize meetings. If you have any information regarding Alexis Scott’s disappearance, please call the Peoria Police Department at 309-673-4521 or Crime Stoppers anonymously at 309-673-9000.

    Friends, family still digging for answers in woman’s disappearance

    Dusti Moultrie and Shoni Johnson refuse to give up.

    Their efforts have led to more information about the movements of Alexis Camry Scott before her Sept. 23, 2017, disappearance — and both women have worked tirelessly in the effort to keep Scott’s name in the media.

    Not many people were very interested in Scott or her whereabouts — especially after it became public knowledge that she had worked as a self-described “escort,” attending parties as “eye candy” for men.

    April said her daughter traveled to Las Vegas in August 2017 and ended up beaten and abandoned in Sacramento, California, sometime later. April paid for her bus trip back to Galesburg — but Alexis said little about what happened to her in Sacramento.

    Dusti and Shoni didn’t care one bit where Alexis might have been — or what she might have done — before she went missing.

    Dusti started a massive online campaign to put Alexis’ name in front of eyeballs. Shoni started distributing flyers and snooping social media.

    Five months later, the search for Alexis Scott continues

    After five months, the question is, where is Alexis Scott?

    It’s a question that many on social media have asked along with her mother, April Allen Scott, and her 2-year-old son. And it’s a question that members of the Peoria Police Department would like to answer.

    It’s a story that possibly involves multi-state sex trafficking, a lifestyle unknown to family until recently. They are frustrated with the investigation.

    No one has seen or heard from the 20-year-old since she left a party at 125 Richmond St., on Sept. 23, 2017, at about 5:45 a.m. That means no social media posts. No calls home. No pictures. Nothing.

    “I would like to say that this could be anybody’s child,” said Dusti Moultrie, a former Peorian who now lives in Texas and who is one of many leading the online fight to keep Scott’s disappearance in the news. “At 20, how many of us adults made the best decisions? That doesn’t change the love that people still have for their children and Alexis has a 2-year-old son that her mother is now solely responsible for.

    “He deserves to have his mother,” she said.

    Lt. Mike Boland and Capt. Mike Mushinsky of the Peoria Police Department both say they are doing what they can to find Scott, but that her lifestyle, which included connections with sex trafficking and drugs, made things more difficult.

    Scott was at the party briefly, having arrived there at about 5 a.m. She left a short time later, and that’s where the trail seemingly stops. Moultrie, who has created a Facebook page dedicated to Scott’s case, says witnesses have told her and police that she left in a blue Chevrolet Impala.

    However, recently filed court records at the Peoria County Courthouse state police aren’t sure how she left. The affidavit, which was attached to seven similar search warrants, acknowledged the Impala, but said a review of surveillance footage from a nearby business wasn’t conclusive. It also said a witness who told police about the car admitted later she was on drugs and could have mistaken the type of car.

    Boland and Mushinsky both say they have been to the house at least three times to search it, once with a cadaver dog. The people who live there have been cooperative, they have said. And they have tried to interview as many people who were at the party as they could, but no one seems to know exactly how Scott left the party. Moultrie and April Scott disagree, saying the police waited too long — 26 days — to obtain a search warrant for the house, something they both say shows police didn’t take the case seriously at first.

    The detectives say they have searched the Richmond house as well as another house. They have gotten search warrants to go through about a half-dozen cellphones to see if there is evidence. They have talked to everyone at the party and anyone who had information. They went to a field near Canton after learning a person had taken a bloody mattress, some carpet and padding there to burn. An Illinois State Police forensic team went and found a burn pile with box springs and other material. Those were collected, and test results on that material are pending.

    “For DNA type of results, this is no longer than it would normally take,” Mushinsky said. “I feel for the family. Like I said, I’m frustrated as well, and we are doing everything possible that we can do to find Alexis. I understand that if folks around her think we can move faster, I understand.”

    There was also a barber chair that was left in two locations in Fulton County, but by the time they learned about it in November, the chair, which had been broken apart, was gone, according the search warrant affidavit.

    Mother of Alexis Scott takes measures into her own hands to continue the search for her daughter

    A Peoria mother says shes not giving up, this comes months after her daughter disappeared. Today she held a fundraiser with the hope of hiring someone to help get more answers.

    It's been five long months and still 20-year-old Alexis Scott is missing without a trace.

    But her mother April Allen-Scott says the search efforts aren't anywhere near over.

    “I’ll play your game but I'm gonna play to win,” said Scott. “I don't know what everyone else has done but I'm not everybody else you chose the wrong mom.”

    The mother says the police department isn't doing enough to help in the search for her daughter.

    “I expected much more from the police department,” said Scott.

    So she decided it was time for her to take action, and the action started with a fundraiser on Sunday.

    She said she hopes the fundraiser will afford her the opportunity to hire a private investigator.

    Peoria police again search house where Alexis Scott was last seen

    Two police agencies raided a Central Peoria home on Monday that is the last known place a missing 20-year-old Peoria woman was seen five months ago.

    Officers with a federal anti-drug task force and the Peoria Police Department served two search warrants on the house, at 125 W. Richmond Ave., about 10:30 a.m.

    The federal agents were there searching for drugs while Peoria police were at the scene looking for “biological” evidence as it related to Alexis Scott, who vanished the morning of Sept. 23 after being at a party at the house, said Peoria police Lt. Mike Boland.

    Search for Alexis Scott, missing since September, moves to Rice Lake

    Volunteers will again scour parts of Rice Lake State Fish and Wildlife Area in Fulton County on Saturday morning, hoping to find any trace of a 20-year-old Peoria woman who has been missing for seven months.

    The search for Alexis Scott will begin at about 11 a.m. Those who are interested can find more information at The Alexis Camry Scott Campaign page on Facebook.

    “We have no evidence to suggest that this is a murder or that she’s a victim of trafficking. We can’t tell one way or the other,” said the detective, who is urging people to help with the search.

    Missing Alexis Scott honored on 21st Birthday

    Nearly eight months after she went missing, Alexis Scott’s mother brought together friends and volunteers to celebrate her 21st birthday Sunday.

    “I believe she’s alive. I believe she will be found,” April Allen-Scott said.

    The group, joined by Boland and detective Matt Rogers, released balloons, signed with birthday messages, from the car wash across the street from where Scott was last seen.

    Thalia Ross, a close friend of Scott since they were in primary school, also joined the search and celebration, singing “Happy Birthday” alongside Scott’s family.

    “It’s a special day. I just wish she could be here, too,” she said.

    Young mother still missing; Her family is bringing awareness to her case

    A young mother from Peoria is still missing, 9 months after she was last seen.

    Alexis Scott has been missing since last September, but her mother isn't ready to give up.

    "It's more than most of us can bear in the family," said April Scott, Alexis' Mother.

    Alexis Scott's family and friends marched from the Peoria Police Department to the Federal Courthouse Monday. They want to remind the community of Alexis' case.

    "I will continue to bring awareness to the fact that my daughter is missing," said April Scott. "I don't know what other mothers do, but I'm not other mothers. So I don't care. What I do care about is where is my child, and what happened to her, and why hasn't she been home in 9 months."

    Alexis was last seen at a party on September 23. Her mother said Alexis' 2-year-old son talks about her constantly, wondering where she is. April said she keeps reassuring him.

    "Mommy's gone," said April Scott. "She'll be back soon. I've been saying it for 9 months now."

    The community has banded together several times to search for Alexis, but there's been no sign of her. People from all across Central Illinois have joined in the search.

    "We're trying to help the mother and the family get some closure to this," said Bill Jones, a Peoria resident who joined in on the march.

    April is now trying to get the FBI involved because she said she doesn't think the Peoria Police Department is doing enough, and she doesn't want it to become a cold case.

    "I am going to keep looking until I find her," said April Scott. "Until I understand what happened, and where she is."

    Loewy: Out of questions in Alexis Scott disappearance, though many remain

    When I sit down to write a column about the disappearance of Alexis Camry Scott, I don’t want to speak with her mother.

    It’s not that April Allen isn’t a great interview.

    Quite the contrary. April is a thoughtful, candid and an immensely open person. She isn’t afraid to talk about Alexis, who in just a few days will have been missing for 11 months.

    I simply can’t ask April any more questions.

    I can’t hear a mother search for the words to describe trying to go on with a “normal” life when her daughter has simply vanished. I can’t ask her to entertain the notion Alexis is dead.

    Worst of all, I can’t ask April what she’s going to do if she never finds out anything — if the months stretch out into years and years turn into decades.

    That happens in some missing person cases. It happens more often than we like to think.

    The sad fact is I can’t ask a mother to ponder never knowing, never getting any answer. I can’t ask another human being to consider a kind of slow-motion death sentence, left to wonder until there is a darkness with no hope of light.

    “I think Mollie the college student from Iowa being missing is a big story. It really is, and it’s really important to get that story out and force people to think about it,” Dusti said.

    “But I think Alexis’ story is just as important. They are practically the same age. And they have vanished. That said, I can’t help but wonder if who people think Alexis was has led to the conclusion that her disappearance isn’t as important as Mollie’s.”

    The disparity in media attention raises questions about ethnicity, perceived lifestyles, and value judgments placed on each woman’s “worth.”

    “I hate that. I hate to think people will think of Alexis as disposable, because she did some work in the sex trade. I hate to think that people consider her not as valuable.”

    Donations toward the search for Mollie have topped $300,000. A ******** account for Alexis has raised $2,500.

    As a year gone without a trace draws closer, I can look to the “missing” poster hanging on my own wall. In it Alexis is smiling for the selfies all people of her generation snap without a second thought. I think about a woman who is a mother to Tevin, a daughter to April, part of the fabric of people’s lives.

    The job of a community — all of us, from the meek to the mighty — is to speak for the dead, bring justice for those wronged, and to find the missing.

    If Alexis Camry Scott was disposable, who among us is not?

    Alexis Scott case remains open, Peoria police say they 'understand' public's frustration

    The Peoria Police Department is defending its work on the Alexis Scott case.

    Scott was last seen at a party on Sept. 23, 2017. Since then, community members have questioned the PPD's dedication to the investigation.

    Tuesday at a Peoria city council meeting, citizens voiced their concerns. Wednesday, the police said they are "doing all we can," providing an update on what they have done.

    Interim Peoria Police Chief Loren Marion gave a detailed timeline of the PPD's involvement with the case, dating back to the morning Scott went missing. A lot of information was redacted since initially reporting on it.

    "If it was my family, I'd be frustrated as well," Marion said.

    Marion said it is still an open investigation, calling it "sensitive" and "emotional."

    He said there is no evidence that would indicate Scott is deceased. It was also noted that there are currently no direct leads.

    "We have requested assistance from several outside sources," Marion said. The PPD has worked with the FBI, as well as other departments in Central Illinois.

    Marion also said that Scott's mother, April Allen-Scott, has Lt. Michael Boland's direct contact and they communicate often.

    Boland said he has been "discouraged" by a lack of credible tips.

    A Crime Stoppers reward has been raised to $2,500.

    One year later, no sign of Alexis Scott

    It’s been one year.

    Alexis Camry Scott was last seen 12 months ago, in the early morning hours, at a party held at 123 W. Richmond St. in Peoria.

    The single mother of a 2-year-old named Tevin hasn’t been heard from for 365 days. No calls. No texts. No Facebook posts. No Snapchat pictures. No Messenger notes.

    During the year, Scott’s son celebrated a birthday. She turned 21. The milestones passed with no word from the missing woman.

    On Sept. 23, 2017, Scott stepped into some kind of void.

    Marion said it is still an open investigation, calling it “sensitive” and “emotional.”

    He said there is no evidence indicating Scott is deceased. It was also noted that there are currently no direct leads.

    Moultrie and Allen-Scott also pointed out there is no evidence Scott is alive. There have been no credible witness sightings of the 21-year-old.

    Search for Alexis Scott lands on ‘Steve Wilkos Show’

    The mother of a Peoria woman who has been missing for almost 18 months appeared on the nationally syndicated “Steve Wilkos Show” on Wednesday in hopes of getting more answers.

    The episode will not air until May, but April Scott and Dusti Moultrie, a former Peoria resident who now lives in Texas and runs a Facebook group dedicated to keeping Alexis’ name out there, hope the show will lead to answers on where Alexis Scott is. It was hard, said April Scott, her mother, to rehash the story again and even harder as the show invited a “person of interest” to be on stage with them.

    “It was hard and very stressful, as I have spent almost two years attempting to find out where she is and who’s responsible,” said April Scott from John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York just before she flew home. “Rehashing it all is heart wrenching. The person involved in today’s test is evil and has an uncaring form, has no idea what it is to hurt someone else’s child or put them in danger.”

    Neither woman could reveal much about what happened on the show. They did say the person of interest took a lie detector test, which was paid for by the show. Results will be revealed in May. The show airs locally on the CW weekdays at 8 a.m., according to the show’s website.

    Alexis Scott’s disappearance to be featured on national TV show

    On Friday, several people will gather at a Downtown Peoria lounge to watch the nationally syndicated “Steve Wilkos Show” hoping to get answers about a Peoria woman who has been missing for more than 18 months.

    The episode featuring April Scott, the mother of Alexis Scott, and Dusti Moultrie, the woman who runs a Facebook group dedicated to keeping Alexis’ name out there, will air at 8 a.m. Friday on the CW television network. The N9NE Culture Lounge, 633 Main St., has offered to open for a viewing party. There is a $5 fee, which the lounge says will go toward efforts to find the missing woman.

    Family, friends continue search for Alexis Scott throughout Central Illinois

    Alexis Scott went missing in September of 2017 and to this day, her whereabouts are still unknown.

    Not only do Alexis Scott's friends and family want her to come home safe, but in the case she is no longer alive, they want justice for her and her son.

    Search party members say they need the public's help in finding more information on where she might be.

    Alexis' mother put together a search party Wednesday to look for her, but for privacy reasons, she requested to not give the location of the search.

    "We're not gonna stop until you get brought home, and until you have justice we're not gonna stop," said O'Reilly.

    Peoria Police investigating new information in Alexis Scott missing-person case

    Alexis Scott disappeared Sept. 23, 2017.

    She was last seen at a party in Peoria. Last August, the Peoria Police Department said the search was still active, believing she was alive.

    Now, police say they’ve received new information in the case and are investigating it.

    They could not tell us what that information is and they could not tell us if the new information is related to new rumors about the case circulating social media.


    Report of new information in the Alexis Scott case

    After two years of little to go on, a Facebook group dedicated to keeping the search for Alexis Scott going has said it has new information on the case.

    That information was turned over to the Peoria Police Department, which confirmed it received the tips but declined to comment on the nature of the information or its veracity.

    Dusti Moultrie, the woman who runs the Facebook group, declined to comment on the nature of the information as well.
