Mother of a Missing Kenyan University Student in Florissant, Missouri Hopes Someone Knows of Her Daughter's Whereabouts

The mother of a Kenyan university student in Florissant, Missouri who has been missing since March 30th hopes someone can provide the family with information on their daughter’s whereabouts.

Gift Kamau, 20 years old and a third-year student at Saint Louis University in St Louis, was last seen last Thursday headed from home to school.

Camera footage shows her walking across the Chain of Tocks Bridge toward Missouri between 11:30am and 1:30pm on Thursday, but police are not sure if she crossed over because there are no cameras on the other end of the bridge. Her gold 2007 Toyota Corolla was found around 10pm Thursday neat the bridge.

Gift’s mother Christine Mairu says Gift was very well behaved but that school was probably stressing her out. “She was someone who was looked at as a very good girl, very well behaved girl, and even in our Kenyan community she was envied by a lot of people because she was very nice,” Christine tells Fox 2 News in St Louis. She is appealing to anyone who may have seen her on that day or could have information on her whereabouts to contact the family or police.

Gift is described as 20 years old (DOB: 09/05/1996), 5 foot 3 inches tall, with short, and curly hair, brown eyes, and a slim build.

Anyone with information on her whereabouts is being requested to  call 911, the Madison Police Department at 618-876-4300 or the St. Louis County Police Department at 314-889-2341.
