The young Kayla Berg lived in Antigo, Wisconsin with her mother, Hope, and older brother, Jimmy. Since she was a small child, Kayla had trained in gymnastics. While she was in high school, Kayla discovered a passion for dance and aspired to become a choreographer. However, Kayla would not even be able to graduate. Almost 14 years after she disappeared, there is still no word on where she is, two weeks before she was supposed to celebrate her sweet sixteenth birthday.

Party House is one of the most popular venues in the city

In 2009, Kayla’s grades declined significantly after her parents separated and her father, James, was diagnosed with cancer. She was a particularly good student, but she began to struggle with her grades. Due to her father’s declining health, Kayla began spending less time studying and more time partying with her friends as a way of coping with the situation.

In addition, Kayla and her friends often went to a party house in the neighboring town of Wausau, 34 miles away, with their friends. Kayla’s secret boyfriend, 19-year-old Miguel Marrero, owned the house where she attended many underage drinking parties there, unbeknownst to her parents, with her brother Jimmy and Jimmy’s best friend, Kevin J. Kielcheski, 24 years old.

Since Kayla was just a minor, when her parents found out about Miguel and their 4-year age difference, they told her that she should break up with him right away. Some say that Kayla did as her parents requested, but others say the opposite.

Disappearance of Kayla — Twice

During the night of August 10, 2009, Kayla told her mom that she was going to spend the night at her friend Natasha’s home, while Natasha told her parents she was going to spend the night at Kayla’s home. In reality, in reality, the girls went to a party house together.

She was unable to contact her mom the next morning since she didn’t return home on time. Her mother could not reach her because she did not have a cellphone. Instead, Hope called several of Kayla’s friends and they told her about Miguel’s party house in Wausau. Before this, Hope had no idea about it at all.

As Hope was about to report Kayla missing, Kayla walked in the door, claiming she had lost track of time. Upset, Hope sat Kayla down and told her that she would not be allowed to attend parties for people under the age of 18 — including Wausau. Kayla promised that she wouldn’t return to the party house, but she disappeared again that same night and she wouldn’t return that time either.

It was supposed that Kayla would spend that night at her dad’s house that night, but she left at 9 pm, claiming that she was going to hang out with Kevin for a couple of hours.

When James woke up the next morning and realized his daughter still wasn’t home, he called Kevin. He said that Kayla had requested that he drop her off at a friend’s house in Wausau which he did at 10:30 pm. When James asked for the address, Kevin said he had no idea because he had followed Kayla’s directions. Despite his claim of never having been there, Kevin claimed he had never been to the house before.

The first thing that James thought about when he called Hope was that Kayla had gone home to her mother’s house, but that was not the case. But even so, he decided not to report her missing immediately in case she simply lost track of time. However, after six days of inquiring with Kayla’s friends and searching on their own, they finally reported her missing after finding no trace of her anywhere.

9:30 p.m. was the last confirmed time Kayla was seen. She was visiting her friend Beth at McDonald’s, which was where she last sighted her. As Kayla and Beth chatted while Kevin waited in his truck, Kayla told Beth that they were planning to smoke weed and drive around for the night. She told Beth that she would call Beth later that night when she got back into Kevin’s truck. The call never came.

Can you tell which of the two suspects is lying out of the two?

Kevin J. Kielcheski, Ph.D.

As a result of the questioning, Kevin repeated the same story — that he did not know which house Kayla had been dropped off at in Wausau when he dropped her off. As he described the house and his route to get there, he said that all the lights were turned off and there seemed to be no one at home. Despite that, he continued driving away without waiting for Kayla to enter the house.

The investigators put all of the pieces together and determined that the house Kevin was talking about was the house that was rented out to Kayla’s [ex? ]-boyfriend, Miguel Marrero, as a party house. Nevertheless, there were several problems with Kevin’s story.

It is worth noting that the house had already been condemned by the city weeks earlier, and Miguel had already moved to another house 1 mile away from it. It was known to Kayla and her friends that her move was imminent, and they had a party at Miguel’s new house the night before she disappeared — Miguel’s sister told the police that Kevin dropped Kayla and her friend Natasha off there. Other mutual friends told me that Kevin knew exactly where the party house was and that he would typically drive Kayla and her brother Jimmy there.

What made Kayla ask Kevin to drop her off at Miguel’s old house when she knew that he had moved? Furthermore, Kayla was afraid of the dark and probably would not have wanted to be stuck in an abandoned, creepy house by herself without a cell phone if she knew Miguel had moved. Some wonder if Kayla even made it to Wausau.

Unless his mother was covering for him, Kevin dropped Kayla off at 10:30 pm. He said that the drive back to his house would take approximately an hour, and his mother said he was inside their home at midnight. Therefore, this timeline makes sense. However, when confronted with inconsistencies in his story, Kevin refused to speak with the police any further and quickly hired a lawyer to assist him.

As a result of the search of Kevin’s Jeep, some unknown items of interest were sent for DNA testing. The results of these tests have not yet been released to the public.

In October 2009, Kevin was charged with Reckless Endangerment of a Minor after admitting he smoked weed with Kayla the night before she was last seen, although the charges were dropped in 2011 due to a lack of evidence in the case.

According to reports, investigators in December 2009 deployed 10 cadaver dogs in a line up of 10 vehicles without informing the handler of any background information, and the dogs reportedly detected decomposition inside Kevin’s Jeep which was parked in a parking lot.

As a result, all of the evidence is circumstantial and Kevin was never charged in relation to Kayla’s disappearance. He went on to give birth to a child who, today, would be just a few years shy of Kayla’s age at the time of her disappearance.

Known as Miguel Marrero, he is a

Despite the fact that Miguel told investigators he had not seen or spoken to Kayla in over a week (since the party at his new house), phone records proved otherwise. There was, however, a second cellphone Miguel had, and it pinged off a tower 40 miles north of Wausau on the night Kayla disappeared, receiving two unanswered calls from that tower between the hours of 1 am and 2:30 am.

In spite of the fact that Miguel refused to tell the police who the calls came from, there is a possibility that Kayla borrowed a phone in order to call him, but it is also possible that Miguel was involved in other things that he didn’t want the authorities to know about, and that the call had nothing to do with Kayla’s disappearance at all.

He hired a lawyer when questioned about the calls, and he stopped cooperating with the police investigation after he hired a lawyer. However, the police searched the condemned party house as well as his vehicle, but they did not find anything of interest.

It has been 14 years since the search began, but the search continues

On June 15, 2011, James Berg passed away without ever finding out what happened to his only daughter. On his deathbed, James Berg had asked Hope to do everything in her power to bring their daughter home. Nearly 14 years later, Hope still tries to make good on her promise to bring their daughter home.

It is believed Kayla was last seen wearing a red tank top, a blue hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans, tan sandals, and a silver necklace. Today, Kayla would turn 29 years old.

It is an ongoing nightmare, it never ends and I can never wake up from it. I will never stop trying. I will never quit. She will always be on my mind and in my heart.” — Hope Sprenger, Kayla’s mother.

You are asked to call Antigo PD at 715–627–6411 if you have any information that could lead to Kayla Berg’s location. The FBI is offering a $20,000 reward for any information that can lead to her location.
