On September 25, 2020 Keith Kloostra was charged with two counts of criminal sexual conduct in the second degree of a 10-year-old girl. Scheduled to appear for a virtual hearing (because of COVID) on October 12 at his attorney's office, Kloostra didn't show up, and is now wanted for failure to appear for a probable cause hearing.
According to WXMI his abandoned maroon-colored Dodge Caravan was found near Zeigler Park in Newaygo County a few days later, however Kloostra was not, despite extensive searches over hundreds of acres.
The Kent County Sheriff's office posted a statement claiming that Kloostra had claimed he wanted to harm himself, and are now asking the public's help in locating him.
Authorities believe Kloostra could still be alive, and according to authorities in Grand Rapids, Kloostra is not only wanted, but there's also an active investigation into his missing persons status.
Kloostra stands 6 feet 1 inches tall, weighs 170 pounds, and has blue eyes and brown hair.
If you know where he's hiding, please contact the Kent County Sheriff's Office at 616-632-6125.
Thoughts? I am placing this case in the Fugitives on TV section because In Pursuit with John Walsh is covering the manhunt/missing persons investigation on their ID channel page. So we know based on their article's posting date, he was still at large at least as of November 5th, 2020.
Just for an additional resource, Kent County online court records show no court events in this case since October 19th, 2020:
