When Kallie Lutz texted with Jamie Lutz Allen on May 28 she never could have imagined that it would be the last communication that she had with her mother.
The Harahan Police Department say Allen, 41, was last seen in the 5700 block of River Road on May 28 at 9:30 p.m. Allen was involved in a one-car crash at the location, and some of her belongings were later found on the corner Williams Blvd by River Town in Kenner on May 29 at 2 a.m.
“It’s hard … just not knowing if she’s alive or not knowing where she is,” Lutz said. “How has no one found her in three months?”
Lutz said her family was contacted by the Harahan Police Department recently concerning the case. Allen’s phone has been sent to a crime lab so that data information could be obtained, Lutz said. The Harahan Police Department did not return calls regarding the case.
“I just really want her to come home safe,” Lutz said. “She is very sweet. She’d literally do anything for anyone. She has a really good heart.”
Miranda Ockman said she has known Allen since middle school, when the two attended JB Martin together. Ockman said Allen was a long-time St. Charles Parish resident who had moved to Harahan in April 2022 after not being able to find new housing in St. Charles Parish following Hurricane Ida.
“An eyewitness saw her walking,” Ockman said of Allen after the crash on May 28. “She loved her kids … she always worked. She sometimes worked multiple jobs when she had to … her life revolved around her kids. Everyone is just so devastated and distraught. She just disappeared. All we can do is wonder what happened to her.”
Ockman said Lutz’s belongings found in Kenner included her “untouched” purse containing money and her cell phone.
“She would never leave and not contact her kids,” Ockman said.
Anyone with information regarding Allen’s missing person case should contact Sergeant Drew Deacon at 504-737-9763.
