It has been almost six months since Bakersfield resident Baylee Despot left her mother’s home in northwest Bakersfield and disappeared.
Baylee’s family reported her to the Kern County Sheriff’s Office as a missing person in April 2018. Despite months of investigation, detectives have been unable to find Baylee. Nobody has been named as a suspect in this case, nor has anyone been arrested or criminally charged.
Baylee did not make it home for her twenty-first birthday, and her mother, aunt, and many family members are heartbroken by the continued lack of new information in the case. While the Kern County Sheriff’s Office is still looking into her disappearance, family and friends of Baylee have collected reward money in the hope that someone will come forward with information to tell us what happened to Baylee.
Secret Witness of Kern County is now offering a reward of up to $6,000 for the successful resolution of the case of Baylee Despot.
Baylee is described as a: Caucasian female, 21 years old, 5’07”, 110 pounds, with green eyes and brown shoulder-length hair.
If you have any information about Baylee Despot’s disappearance, please notify Secret Witness at (661) 322-4040. All information to Secret Witness is confidential. Secret Witness is also accepting donations to the reward fund for information in this case.
