LAPLACE – On Wednesday, Feb. 19, St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to the 500 block of Homewood Place in Reserve for the report of a missing married couple.

Family members of Kenneth Joseph, 34, and Lakeitha Joseph, 29, reported they had not heard from the couple since Tuesday at 6:30 p.m.

Kenneth’s sister told investigators that Kenneth often borrowed her vehicle and would return it before morning the next day. She said that he borrowed her vehicle Tuesday at approximately 6:30 p.m. and had not returned the vehicle. She felt that it was odd that he did not return the vehicle as he usually does.

Kenneth’s mother became concerned after she unsuccessfully attempted to contact her son several times throughout

the day Wednesday.

She contacted Lakeitha’s father, and his attempts to contact his daughter were also futile.

The concerned parents went to the couple’s residence to find the house unlocked and no one there.

Kenneth Joseph is 5-feet-8-inches tall and weighs 210 pounds. Lakeitha Joseph is 5-foot-4-inches tall and weighs 135 pounds. The vehicle Kenneth borrowed is a silver 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan with Louisiana license plate TVN 993.

Anyone with information regarding the whereabouts of Kenneth and Lakeitha Joseph is asked to call the St. John the Baptist Parish Sheriff’s Office tip line at 985-359- 8477 or Crimestoppers at 504-822-1111.
