BATON ROUGE-The search for a Duson teen who may have been involved in the sex trade has shifted to Baton Rouge, according to a private investigator.
Keiosha Felix, 15, disappeared at the end of April. She lived in a group home near Duson because her mom was in jail. Four people were arrested in connection with her disappearance, including her own family members.
The 15-year-old was already a mother herself, and on weekends she would visit her one-year-old at her aunt’s house. Police said that aunt, Patricia Andrus, allegedly allowed her boyfriend, 43-year-old Leon Wilkerson, to rape Felix.
Andrus is charged with improper supervision and accessory to rape. Wilkerson was arrested in Zachary and charged with rape and kidnapping. Earlier this month Wilkerson’s brother, Ronald Wilkerson, was arrested in Baton Rouge and charged with kidnapping as well. Keiosha’s cousin, Portia Felix, is also charged with obstruction.
A private investigator hired by Felix’s family said none of them will tell police where Keiosha is. The investigators suspects she is in Baton Rouge, and was sold into child sex trafficking.
Her family says they continue to hold out hope for her to come home.
