Fulton police say kidnapping victim and missing woman same person

Missing woman

FULTON, Mo.– The Fulton Police Department is now saying investigators believe the kidnapping victim from earlier this week and the missing person case both involve Tori Taylor.

Yesterday, police put out a missing person advisory for Taylor. They said she was last seen on April 20 in Montgomery County.

Police say the 25-year-old borrowed a car from a friend who lives in Fulton on April 21 and promised to return it but has not.

On Monday, the department announced it was investigating the possible kidnapping of a woman.

The department released images of a vehicle that was last seen on security video near E. 8th and State Street. The vehicle is described as gray or a dark-colored Dodge Charger with three men inside.

Police say the victim is a thin build female, approximately 5’3″, short brown hair, last seen wearing a black short-sleeve shirt and white shorts.

They were asking anyone with security cameras, doorbell video, or who may have seen the vehicles are asked to call police.

The Fulton Police Department says it has investigated dozens of leads and are continuing to get tips as they actively investigate.

If you have any information about Taylor’s whereabouts call Fulton Police at 573-592-3100 or Crimestoppers Tip Line at 573-592-2474.

President Harry Truman said: “It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.” That spirit is alive and well at Fox 2. Our teamwork is on display each and every day.

Our news slogan is: “Coverage You Can Count On.” We quite frankly are too busy to worry about who gets the credit. Our main concern is serving the viewer.

We go where the stories take us. Whether it be Washington, D.C when a Belleville man opened fire during a congressional baseball game practice or to Puerto Rico where local Ameren crews restored power after more than 5 months in the dark.

Coverage You Can Count On means “Waking up your Day” with our top-rated morning show. From 4:00 am-10:00 am we are leading the way with breaking news. But our early morning crew also knows how to have some fun! Our strong commitment to the communities we serve is highlighted with our Friday neighborhood shows.

Our investigative unit consists of three reporters. Elliott Davis focuses on government waste, Chris Hayes is our investigative reporter, and Mike Colombo is our consumer reporter. They work in unison with the news department by sharing resources and ideas.

We continue to cover breaking news aggressively and relied on our seasoned journalists to make a difference with the stories we covered. The shooting of Arnold Police Officer Ryan O’Connor is just one example of that. Jasmine Huda was the only reporter who had exclusive access to the O’Connor family during his amazing rehabilitation in Colorado.

Last, but certainly not least, FOX 2 and KPLR 11 are committed to covering local politics. We host debates among candidates and have the most extensive presidential election coverage. Our commitment to politics isn’t just during an election year. We produce two political shows that air every weekend.
