Birmingham, Ala. – Birmingham Councilwoman Sheila Tyson will join “The Friends of Real Estate” in providing Thanksgiving Assistance to the family of missing Fairfield woman Kierra Stubbs. Stubbs was last seen on April 24th after driving to a Boost Mobile store on 3rd Avenue to meet a man whom she called a friend — who offered to help her repair the brakes on her car. She got into the man’s car and hasn’t been seen since. Her mother Lakinsa Stubbs is now taking care of her two children.

“The missing case of Kierra is such a sad case, and it has really touched the hearts of those in the Fairfield community,” Councilor Tyson said. “As a mother I can only imagine what Ms. Stubbs’ is going through. It is my hope that this assistance will be able to provide her family with some type of relief during the holidays.

Councilor Tyson will present Ms. Tubbs with a Thanksgiving basket at 2:30 p.m. TODAY at the Stubbs home, located at 2636 20th Place Ensley, AL 352080.

Additionally, Councilor Tyson is working to renew efforts to gain the public’s assistance in finding Stubbs. Councilor Tyson has offered a $1,000 reward for any information that leads to resolving this case.

“I truly believe that someone out there knows where Kierra is,” Councilor Tyson said. “We are pleading with the public to call police if they know anything about her disappearance. It is our hope that we will be able to bring Kierra home to her small children for the holidays.”

If you have any information about his case, please call police at 205-328-9311 or leave an anonymous tip with CrimeStoppers at 205-254-7777.
