BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) – Its been seven weeks since Kierra Stubbs was last seen. The 23-year-old mother of two went missing on April 24, 2014.
Her grandmother describes her as a loving person who is very close to her family.
“When she isn’t working she is with her family,” said Ora Stubbs.
The family says dealing with her disappearance is an agony that’s tough to describe. Her one-year-old son and four-year-old daughter ask for her everyday.
Stubbs was last seen getting into a burgundy Chrysler 200 with tinted windows outside a Boost Mobile store on 3rd Avenue West. The car belongs to a man police called a “person of interest” at the time of her disappearance.
According to Kierra’s Aunt, Linda Taylor, the man was a frequent customer with his children at the Burger King were she worked. Kierra and the man became friends. One day, he offered to help Stubbs repairs the brakes on her car.
Her brother drove her to meet him on the morning of April 24th, outside the store where she often paid her cellphone bill. Stubbs got out of the car and walked over to his.
The man was questioned by police. Lt. Sean Edwards with the Birmingham Police Department says surveillance was also put on him for a while, but they have no new leads.
Edwards says, they are hopefully, but the longer a person is missing the more difficult the case becomes.
Meanwhile, the family continues to try an comfort her two small children while working on ways to raise money to create a reward for information on her whereabouts.
