Savannah Baker Bw MPNSometime during the evening of May 10, 2013, Savannah Baker, 15, left her grandmother’s home in St. John Missouri, a small town southeast of St. Louis Lambert Airport.

The reward on Facebook group “Please Help Find Savannah Baker” has grown to $10,000.

In a petition to request the FBI’s involvement in her case, her father Billy Baker wrote that the “St. John’s detective has done a great job but has limited help and resources and believes that my daughter may have crossed state lines with a known convicted sexual predator – and may be with him or his family.” The petition is here.

She was believed to be in the Savannah, Georgia area. That has changed.

Private Investigator Robin Martinelli, who is providing free services for this case in collaboration with CFSI, spoke with MPN.  She advised, “Savannah Baker was last seen at 6700 Roswell Road in Sandy Springs on the stoop of an apartment building on May 31. There was a homeless person who approached her and told her she wanted to go home. They may be travelling together.”

Investigator Martinelli spoke with Detective Curch of the Chatham County Sheriff’s department and was told that “everything points to Atlanta.” She added that “Orr is clearly a person of interest,” in the disappearance of Baker.
