Information on the case from local sources, may or may not be correct : Kislo was last seen in Edwardsville, Pennsylvania on April 16, 1996. She left her residence at Gateway Manor with a prayer book and her apartment key, and has never been heard from again. It's uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning or without taking her purse, which was left on the floor of her apartment. $200 in cash, and her identification, was also left behind.
Authorities later searched the Susquehanna River for Kislo's body after dogs detected her scent under the Black Diamond railroad bridge and at another location fifty feet downstream from the bridge. Her daughter stated Kislo didn't usually go there and would usually walk in the opposite direction, to St. Hedwig's Church. She didn't drive and instead walked everywhere she went.
The search turned up nothing and Kislo's body has never been found, but she is presumed deceased.

A missing person is a person who has disappeared and whose status as alive or dead cannot be confirmed as their location and condition are not known. A person may go missing through a voluntary disappearance, or else due to an accident, crime, death in a location where they cannot be found (such as at sea), or many other reasons. In most parts of the world, a missing person will usually be found quickly. While criminal abductions are some of the most widely reported missing person cases, these account for only 2–5% of missing children in Europe.
By contrast, some missing person cases remain unresolved for many years. Laws related to these cases are often complex since, in many jurisdictions, relatives and third parties may not deal with a person's assets until their death is considered proven by law and a formal death certificate issued. The situation, uncertainties, and lack of closure or a funeral resulting when a person goes missing may be extremely painful with long-lasting effects on family and friends.
Several organizations seek to connect, share best practices, and disseminate information and imAge at the time of disappearance: s of missing children to improve the effectiveness of missing children investigations, including the International Commission on Missing Persons, the International Centre for Missing & Exploited Children (ICMEC), as well as national organizations, including the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children in the US, Missing People in the UK, Child Focus in Belgium, and The Smile of the Child in Greece.
