CUMBERLAND — Police issued a statewide Silver Alert on Wednesday for a missing 21-year-old Cumberland woman.

Kristyna Johns left a group home on Beckley Road off Buck Creek Road on the county’s west side Monday evening and hasn’t been seen since, police say. They believe she might be in danger because she has intellectual disabilities that make her easier to influence, they added.

The group home she was living at is owned by Developmental Services Alternatives Inc. Police say Johns left the home about 8:30 p.m. Monday.

She was last seen by a guardian at the group home.

Johns spent time with a male friend Monday but isn’t believed to be with him now, said Alexis Craig, assistant to the Cumberland Police Department chief.

Johns texted her mother Tuesday but is not with her, she added.

She is white with purple hair and brown eyes. She is 5-foot-4 and weighs about 150 pounds. At the time of her disappearance, she was wearing a blue shirt and denim skirt.

A Silver Alert is issued to aid in locating missing adults with dementia, Alzheimer’s disease or other developmental and intellectual disabilities. 

Anyone with information about Johns’ whereabouts is asked to call Cumberland Police Department at 317-894-3525.
