Based out of Cincinnati, Ohio, Keisha was a fun and loving 23-year-old woman who loved her family, friends, and living life. Keisha attended three years of nursing school and consistently maintained employment. Like most young adults, Keisha was in the discovery stage of her life and was working on creating her path.
On July 1st, Keisha went missing. She caught a ride to a hair appointment but never made it.
On Keisha's Facebook page, her last activity was a live video of a cookout where she appeared to be enjoying herself. After that date, there had been no comments, posts, or any activity of the sort on her page.
On July the 1at Keisha contacted her mother to provide her with a new cell phone number. She seemed very excited and was having a good day.
When her mother tried to contact Keisha later that day, her phone went straight to voicemail. Keisha's mother also reached out to friends and family, who also confirmed that they had not heard from Keisha.
For over a month and a half, Keiana Rogers (Keisha's Mother) launched a tireless campaign to locate her daughter.
"Today is day 25 since I have last seen or heard(sic) from my daughter! This is pure torture and pain...."
A source claimed that Keisha might have traveled to Florida but was unfounded. Keisha had a mental illness, as well as insulin-dependent. As a single mother, Keiana and her daughter had a close relationship and Keiana couldn't believe that Keisha would leave abruptly and without notice.
Furthermore, Keisha's mother had gone to the police several times, but because she was an adult, they had no sense of urgency to locate Keisha.
"..Just wanna say it's now been well over a month that my daughter's been missing. CPD does not feel that my daughter's case is important because she's just another missing adult but as you can see the news and media has been flooded with the missing college student from Iowa who is 20 years old."
For over a month and a half, Keiana had asked for help from the police department to find her missing daughter, all for her concerns to be written off. CPD did not provide adequate support because they believed that Keisha just left of her own accord; however, Keisha had no history of being a runaway. CPD did not seem motivated to search for Keisha due to the rumors that stated Keisha had left to go to Florida and her previous run-ins with the law.
Desperate for help, Keisha's mother spoke to local news outlets to help get the word out about her missing daughter. She utilized family, friends, and social media to help search for her daughter.

With no leads, and no contact from her daughter all anyone could do was wait for any tips on where Keisha could be.
After months of searching, Keiana discovered her daughter Keisha had passed away. This news is incredibly devastating to the family, especially to Keisha's grandfather who has terminal cancer. He knew his granddaughter wouldn't leave without at least saying goodbye and that she loved him.
As stated before, Keisha did have a history of mental illness. Because Keisha felt that she had a handle on her mental illness she did stop taking her medication which contributed to many of the issues she encountered. No mother should lose their daughter in this way. Had Keiana received helped from police when she initially requested it, perhaps things would have been a little different.
At this time, the family asks that everyone stop spreading unfounded rumors. Naturally, the family is in extreme shock over Keisha's untimely death and ask for privacy and respect to grieve.
Please help the Rogers family to cover funeral expenses for Nickeisha. Anything you can do to help would be much appreciated it.
