Kayla Berg is a person whom has been missing from the same area I am from, for seven years. She has been missing from Antigo, Wisconsin since August 11th, 2009.
I am writing about this to help with the case in anyway that I can to help get her found and recently there has been a viral video on YouTube that may be a lead in this case.
Here is a picture of the guy in the video. It looks like the YouTube video was taken down but you can still find it here.
The Night Kayla Went Missing one of her brother’s friends picked Kayla up at her father’s house around 8:30 p.m. They then arrived at the Antigo McDonald’s half an hour later. Kayla ran inside, talked briefly with her friend, and then left. She had told her friend she planned to ride around in the car for a while.
The male said he dropped her off at her boyfriend’s house in Wausau, 35 miles from Antigo. It turns out he actually dropped her off at an abandoned building.
The brother’s friend said he last saw Kayla when she got out of his vehicle and walked toward a house that was said to be her boyfriends.
Reports say she was wearing wearing jeans, a red spaghetti strap tank top, and had a dark blue hoodie, tan low heel sandals and a silver ringed necklace.
Recent Viral Video Brought a Lead!
The video titled “Hi Walter! I got a new gf!” was posted on YouTube, October 11, 2009. This was two months after Kayla Berg was last seen. Authorities are investigating what could be a new lead in this cold case.
In the 58-second video, a man describes an encounter with his new girlfriend, then shows a woman who appears to be chained up in a locked room, crying and making muffled screams. In the video, the girl looks and sounds like Kayla Berg. In the video, the girl is also wearing the same outfit that was described after Kayla Berg went missing.
Kayla’s mom, Hope Sprenger told WAOW-TV in Wausau, Wisconsin that, “[It] sounded like her, looked like her, it gave me chills.. It made me sick to my stomach.” This video also made me sick to my stomach, I went to her memorial service… I didn’t sleep well last night because of this. I hope justice is found.
There have been reports made that the guy in the video is in the same county/town where she was kidnapped. The Wausau local news and police have been to the house BUT he is not there.
My Thoughts On the Motive of the Video
Maybe the Guy recorded the video the day he kidnapped her and uploaded it at a later date… We have to rule that out because the calendar in the video says October.
Maybe he had her held hostage for two months and decided to record a video about it. The sickening thing is he posted this video in 2009, it is horrible that it took this long to find this video.
In Addition, is the Walter he is referring to Walter Ellis? Ellis was a Milwaukee area killer and was apprehended 4 days before Kayla Berg went missing.
