    Missing South Elgin girl featured on 'In Pursuit With John Walsh'


    An 11-year-old girl from South Elgin who's been missing since 2017 will be featured Wednesday on the TV program "In Pursuit With John Walsh."

    Authorities say Kayla Unbehaun was abducted by her mother, Heather Unbehaun, who is wanted on a felony warrant for kidnapping. Relatives said the two were going on a Fourth of July camping trip and never returned.

    South Elgin Police Sgt. Mike Doty said mother and daughter are believed to be in the Southeastern United States. "There are unsubstantiated reports they could be in Athens, Georgia," he said.

    Kayla's father, Ryan Iserka, was granted full custody of Kayla in early 2017. Her mother had weekly visitation.

    "In Pursuit With John Walsh" airs at 9 p.m. Wednesday on Investigation Discovery.

    At the time of her abduction, Kayla was 4 feet 4 inches tall and weighed about 60 pounds. She has sandy brown hair and blue eyes. Heather Unbehaun is 5 feet 3 inches tall, weighs 135 pounds and has blonde hair and blue eyes.

    Anyone with information about Kayla and Heather Unbehaun can contact the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678) or South Elgin police at (847) 741-2151 or (630) 232-4739.

    The Vanished Podcast: EPISODE 162: KAYLA UNBEHAUN

    On July 4, 2017, while Americans all over the United States were celebrating Independence Day with barbecues, fireworks, and quality family time, 9-year-old Kayla Unbehaun was spending time visiting her mother in Wheaton, Illinois. The following day, her father, Ryan Iskerka, left work and went to pick up his daughter, Kayla. However, when he arrived at Kayla’s mother’s residence, Kayla and her mother, Heather, were nowhere to be found. Heather’s father and uncle told Ryan that Heather had taken Kayla camping in Wisconsin but Ryan knew that something wasn’t right and immediately called police. In the 18 months that have passed since that day, Kayla and Heather have not been seen or heard from. Heather Unbehaun currently has an active warrant for felony kidnapping.

    At the very start of that podcast episode is a recording of Kayla father talking about her disappearance but he also talks about how shocked he was to hear how Kayla behaved while with her mother. She was described as a "weak" child whereas when she was with her father, she was very strong and outgoing. This "mother" is ruining her child and she needs to be back with her Dad.

    Yes, very cute. I can't get this poor girl out of my mind.. she looks a little like my niece... so maybe that's why.

    She needs to be back with her father.

    Father Of Missing Kayla Unbehaun Says Timmothy Pitzen Hoax “Took Some Of My Hope Away”

    By Mai MartinezApril 5, 2019 at 7:18 pm

    CHICAGO (CBS) — The Timmothy Pitzen hoax hit one suburban Chicago father whose daughter is also missing particularly hard.

    News that Timmothy might have been found gave Ryan Iskerka a renewed hope that after nearly two years his daughter, Kayla Unbehaun, might be found, too. But the revelation that it was an impostor leaves him again wondering if and when he’ll ever see his daughter again.
