LA Woman Disappears During Spiritual Conference

Authorities are searching for a Los Angeles woman who mysteriously disappeared while attending a conference in Ohio last month.

Lindy “Indy” Kidd, 39, was last seen April 23 while attending the “Expelling the Darkness Training” conference in St. Louisville, Ohio, according to a statement from the Licking County Sheriff’s Office.

Her close friend Paulo Reyes told Dateline that he had been regularly communicating with Kidd up until the day she disappeared.

During their last contact, he booked a Lyft for her from the Doubletree Hotel where she was staying in Newark to the conference site, which was described by the news outlet as a spiritual and ritual abuse training.

He believes she successfully made it to the conference because her debit card was used to purchase an entry ticket, but it’s the last time she used the account.

She also never picked up prescription medication she takes daily for seizures in the month since she disappeared.

“Lindy has multiple medical conditions and especially needs daily seizure medication,” the sheriff’s office said.

Reyes told Dateline the 39-year-old’s health concerns were what drew her to the conference. She discovered the training after connecting with a support group to help her with her medical struggles.

She was really looking forward to an event being held by the YouTube channel “Through the Black,” which describes its mission as focusing on "spiritual warfare."

Reyes is now worried about what happened to his close friend, who he first met years earlier in Eugene, California.

At the time, Reyes was operating a café and offered Kidd a space in the venue to display her artwork. The two became close and eventually moved together to Los Angeles, Dateline reports.

“We’re just really worried about her,” he said. “We want to make sure she’s OK.”

Reyes initially reported Kidd missing in Los Angeles, but later reached out to the Licking County Sheriff’s Office in Ohio, who is now handling the case.

Det. Ryan Collins told Oxygen.com the case was “still under investigation” but declined to release any further details.

The sheriff’s office has said her family is also “concerned for her welfare.”

Anyone with information about Kidd’s disappearance is urged to contact Collins at 740-670-5560.
