Details of Disappearance

Ferris was out on May 1, 2017 with her sister and two men they knew. At one point, Ferris's sister wanted to come home, and was dropped off there. Ferris stayed with the men and they were supposed to drop her off at a friend's home, but she never arrived there.

She made a call at 2:06 a.m. on May 2, and then texted the same number at 5:14 a.m. Her last activity on Facebook was at 3:00 a.m. She was last seen leaving a house in the Marlborough neighborhood of Kansas City, Missouri in the early hours of May 2. She has never been heard from again.

The house where Ferris was last seen is in a dangerous neighborhood noted for drug activity, and Ferris's loved ones believe people connected to that house harmed her. It's uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning or be out of touch with her family; she usually calls or texts her mother multiple times a day. She was also close to her siblings. Her case remains unsolved.
