Inkster teen who vanished 7 years ago is still missing

‘She was ready to come home’

Ciara Stacho (NCMEC)

INKSTER, Mich. – It has been seven years since anyone has seen or heard from Ciara Stacho.

She was 16 years old and living in Inkster when she vanished on Aug. 7, 2015. She would be 23 years old now.

Her mother, Dawn Stacho, spoke to Local 4 in 2018. She said Ciara Stacho was a very happy and outgoing teenager.

“She was a sweet girl. She liked to hang out with her friends, and she liked to go to school dances and football games, normal stuff like that,” Dawn Stacho said in 2018.

Dawn Stacho told Local 4 that Ciara Stacho had run away from home, but she had exchanged text messages with her daughter just three days before she disappeared and she was ready to return.

“I told her it was time to come home, you know, and so she could be a productive member of society,” Stacho said. “She was getting older. She was 16, and she said, ‘Yeah.’ She knew, and she was ready to come home, and then nobody. That was the last time anybody saw or heard from her.”
