Delbert Kinsey Missing – Is He Found?

Delbert Kinsey is a member of Operating Engineers Local 513 and has been there for 25 years. It is reported that he has been missing since February 19, 2022. He works for Mississippi Sand/US Silica in Lonedell, Missouri.

Delbert Kinsey is 56 years old as of now.

On Feb. 23, Marylou Kinsey (his wife) posted a plea on Facebook, pleading for help in finding her husband. She stated “He just celebrated his 56th birthday and was looking forward to early retirement since we had already filed to start the process. He was looking forward to fishing, hunting, and kayaking whenever we wanted.”

She had also got a call from his office that he had not reported to work. She later discovered his pickup near the Big River Bridge, near Highways B and C in Morse Mill, and reported it to the Jefferson County Sheriff’s Department.

Deputies, along with the High Ridge and Cedar Hill fire departments and the Missouri Highway Patrol’s Water Division, scoured the area where the truck was recovered using search dogs and a drone, according to Grant Bissell, the Department’s public safety information officer.

They found no trace of Kinsey or any clues as to what might have happened to him.
