On the evening of May 9, 2009, just nine days after her 18th birthday, Kelsey Collins left her home in Everett, Washington, to visit a friend in Seattle, approximately 30 miles away. Kelsey was a radiant and intelligent young woman. But Kelsey was still young and naive and never returned home. The nearly fourteen years of looking for her have spanned from teenage innocence and rebellion to the dark, nefarious and ugly underworld of human and sex trafficking. What happened to Kelsey is a story you’ve seen play out in media headlines, but no two stories or victims are the same. Her disappearance is the final act in one of the most heinous crimes a person can commit. Still, her victimization at the hands of dangerous people is only part of her story. Though Kelsey’s case has garnered some media attention, no one has shared an in-depth and comprehensive look at her life until now.

If you have any information about the disappearance of Kelsey Collins, please call the Everett Police Department at 425-257-8400 or the Seattle Police Department at 206-625-5011.
