    Details of Disappearance

    Kamyle disappeared from San Lorenzo, Puerto Rico at 9:00 a.m. on July 8, 2006. She left home, taking only her cellular phone, never returned. Authorities believe she may have been a victim of suspected serial killer Amilcar Matias Torres, who is currently serving a twenty-year sentence in prison for soliciting sex from several teenage girls he met on the internet. A photo of Matias Torres is posted below this case summary. Investigators determined Kamyle was in communication with him and they spoke on the phone less than an hour before she was last seen. He's also a suspect in the disappearances of Yeritza Aponte-Soto and Cristina Ruiz-Rodriguez.

    Matias Torres has never faced charges in Kamyle's case, or in any other homicides or unsolved disappearances. Her disappearance remains unsolved. Some agencies classify Kamyle as a runaway.
