MILWAUKEE -- Tuesday, May 3, 2016 will mark 14 years since Alexis Patterson disappeared from a Milwaukee neighborhood.

The then-seven-year-old Alexis was last seen in front of her school, Hi-Mount Boulevard Community School. She has not been heard from or seen since.

The photo below to the left is of Alexis prior to her disappearance. The photo on the right is an age-progressed composite created by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children. It was created to show what Alexis may look like at 17 years old.

Anyone with information is urged to call 1-800-THE-LOST (1-800-843-5678) or Milwaukee Police Department 414-935-7401 with any information concerning the disappearance or current whereabouts of Alexis. Calls may be made anonymously.

    Just because it been 14years since my cousin been at least have some faith that she’s coming home!

    • Jenn

      Someone should identify you because you seem to know something and they need to find out what happened to this little girl

      • Ed

        Chrisco is right Jenn, what he didn’t mention is that she was killed by one of her own parents. My guess would be the father, considering he almost beat one of his other children to death back in 2013. While MPD has been unable to find the body or get a confession, the parents’ stories were riddled with inconsistencies.
