Northeast Iowa Woman Reported Missing, Last Seen Wednesday

Authorities are asking for the public’s help in locating a northeast Iowa woman missing since Wednesday, and who was involved in a traffic crash almost a week earlier.                                                                   

The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office says 19-year-old Bailee Pavlovec of Fayette was reported missing Thursday and she was last seen on Wednesday in Hawkeye. A Facebook post reads that Pavlovec left her phone behind and is believed to be with 20-year-old Tyler Vogt from Waterloo. Law enforcement is not sure if she willingly left or unwillingly, and there is potential she could be in danger.

Anyone with any information on her whereabouts is asked to contact Fayette County Sheriff’s Office at 563-422-6067.

The sheriff’s office says Pavlovec was involved in a single-vehicle rollover crash about three miles west of Fayette at about 5:30 a.m. on Thursday, December 8th. Her Nissan Murano was totaled and Pavlovec suffered serious injuries and she was transported to a hospital by private vehicle.                                                                                                   

Court records show that Vogt later that same day, Fayette Police were called to Pavlovec’s residence at about 10 p.m to investigate a domestic disturbance. Vogt is accused of standing over her while she was in a fetal position, yelling and screaming at her. Authorities say Pavlovec also provided threatening text messages sent to her by Vogt.

He was arrested and charged with domestic abuse assault, third or subsequent offense, a Class D felony. A protective order for Vogt to have no contact with Pavlovec was issued on December 9th.
