Boone Prosecutor Asks For Help Locating Missing Woman

Boone County Prosecutor Dan Knight is asking the public for help looking the body of Mengqi Ji Elledge who was last seen at her home on Eastwood Drive in Columbia on October 8.

Knight alleges the missing woman’s husband, Joseph Elledge, is the primary suspect in her disappearance. Columbia Police suspect foul play, and evidence has led investigators to believe Mengqi Ji is no longer alive.

Joseph Elledge is currently facing a charge of child abuse after admitting to leaving bruises on his infant daughter. The abuse was discovered during the course of the investigation into his wife’s disappearance.
