ST. LOUIS, Mo. ( -- St. Louis Metropolitan Police need help locating a man who went missing at the end of August on the same day his ex-girlfriend’s car was stolen.

Police say Kelvin Swingler, 29, was last seen on August 25 between 12:30 a.m. and 1:30 a.m. near the intersection of Margaretta and Cora.

Investigators said Kelvin left his job at a restaurant in Clayton around 10 p.m. and got a ride from his ex-girlfriend to his mom’s house in the 4600 block of Ashland. Swingler and his ex-girlfriend left for the Riverfront a little later and hung out for about an hour.

Swingler’s ex-girlfriend then dropped him off near Margaretta and Cora, where he had been living since the beginning of June.

Swingler’s new girlfriend said he never came back to the home they were staying at in the 4500 block of Margaretta. Swingler’s girlfriend said he always came home between 12 a.m. and 1 a.m.

She said when he did not arrive home by the next morning she went to his mother’s house to see if he was there.

According to police, Swingler’s cell phone has been turned off since August 26. His employer says he has not picked up his paycheck and has missed several shifts. The employer said that it is unlike Swingler to miss payday.

The same day Swingler went missing his ex-girlfriend’s 2002 green Chevrolet Impala with Missouri disabled license plate BW45Z/2012 was reported stolen from the 11000 block of Ebert in north St. Louis County. 

Reports also show there were incidents of violence between Kelvin and the ex-girlfriend.

Anyone who may have information on Swingler’s whereabouts is asked to call Crimestoppers at 1-866-371-TIPS.
