Police issued the endangered person advisory early Wednesday for Kiaira Lazae Burris, who left a McDonald’s restaurant in Versailles about 3 p.m. Tuesday. She called her mother at 9:30 p.m. crying and sounding distraught. A male voice then came on the line and repeatedly said, “I hid the body” before disconnecting the call.
The call came from an unknown number.

She last was seen wearing a brown and tan sleeveless sundress and black sandals with pearls. She was carrying a black backpack containing clothes.
