Friends Rally for Family of Missouri Paraglider Who Disappeared
A Missouri paraglider was last seen flying near the Missouri River on October 26, 2022. He has not been seen since. Friends of his family held a vigil this week as the search continues to learn what happened to him.
Fox 2 St. Louis shared video from the vigil in Washington, Missouri for the family of Kenny Loudermilk. Kenny loved flying and he was seen power paragliding near the Missouri River in the early evening of October 26, 2022.
The Go Fund Me page set up for Kenny's family mentions that he is the single parent of a 15-year-old daughter named Kylie who lost her mom when she was only 3 years old. She spoke at the vigil for her dad and participated in the laying of flowers in the river as search crews continue to search for him.
The benefit page also mentions that Kenny was a member of Pipefitters Union 562. It's believed there will be many funds needed once Kenny is found to help pay for the rescue efforts and for the support of his daughter Kylie moving forward.
Searchers are committed to continuing until Kenny is found. As of this writing, it remains a mystery what happened to a man who loved life and enjoyed flying. The family and friends appreciate prayers also as they try to find a man still loved by many.
