McKenna may be in the company of her mother Jennifer Settle.
An arrest warrant was issued for Jennifer Lea Settle by the state of South Carolina after she was charged with custodial interference. On June 28, 2019, Settle was also charged with unlawful flight to avoid prosecution, and a federal warrant was issued by the United States District Court, District of South Carolina.

Thoughts? Just a technical note that I am placing McKenna's case in the missing section as opposed to fugitive section since in general I try to reserve the fugitive section for parental abduction cases that include additional alleged violent felonies such as murder. That is not to say parental abduction cases with no additional charges besides kidnapping and/or custodial interference aren't important but it's just a technical decision as to not clutter one section or the other. Me and many on our forum have been very vocal that parental abduction cases are not taken seriously enough. Just because the child is with their parent does not mean they're safe and the parent also has no right to deny the other parent custody if the courts haven't.
