Euless police appealed for help to find a missing mentally challenged woman, Keon Mayweather. She was left her Euless home on May 31.

Keon Mayweather, 22, usually spends her days outside her family’s apartment, talking to friends and neighbors.

But the mentally challenged Euless woman left May 31 and hasn’t been seen or heard from since.

Mayweather, who family members said has the mind of a child, voluntarily left the apartment in the 1400 block of Sotogrande Boulevard. Police and family are appealing for help finding the young woman, who doesn’t have a car or a cell phone.

“Someone said that they had seen her near our apartment complex where kids wait for the school bus about two weeks ago,” her older sister, Lakeshia Reynolds of Euless, said. “But that has been it. We don’t know where she could be.”

Keon Mayweather lives with Reynolds.

In February, she wandered away and was found by police. Because she couldn’t communicate with them, Mayweather was taken to John Peter Smith Hospital in Fort Worth for observation. Family members were later contacted and picked her up.

“I’ve called JPS, but they don’t have anyone that fits her description,” Reynolds said.

Another sister, Shakeitha Mayweather of Little Rock, Ark., said Wednesday that her baby sister would have left with someone if they were friendly to her.

“Any grown person would realize in five minutes that her mind is that of a child,” Shakeitha Mayweather said. “She would probably start giggling for no reason.”

Reynolds said that Keon Mayweather stays at the apartment during the day and is unable to work, adding that most of Mayweather’s friends do not drive vehicles.

“We don’t have any other family in Fort Worth or Dallas,” Reynolds said.

A missing person report was filed with police on June 13.
