SALT LAKE CITY — An adult cousin of Jennifer Graves, the outspoken sister of Josh Powell, has gone missing and her family is seeking the public's help to find her.

Kathy Lynn Tarrant Martin, 22, was last seen in the area of 600 South and State Street at Volunteers of America.

She was wearing orange sweat pants and a white T-shirt. Martin was not wearing a coat, but may have acquired one. She is mentally disabled and has cerebral palsy and walks with a pronounced limp, according to Graves, whose brother Josh killed himself and his two sons in a house fire in February in Washington.

Martin left her home in Syracuse Monday and got on a bus to go to school, but never arrived, according to Syracuse Police Lt. Tracy Jensen. Her family reported her missing Monday around 6 p.m.

An Amber Alert cannot be issued for Martin unless there is cause to believe she may be in danger, Jensen said.

Martin may be in the company of an associate, Skyler Perkins, about age 20, who attends the same special needs school as Martin, according to Graves, Josh Powell's sister.

"They left together," Graves said. "But Kathy doesn't have a clue about danger. She is innocent and very trusting."
