  • Hillary Birtley, head chef at Local Harvest Cafe in Tower Grove South, is missing.

Hillary Birtley, the head chef at the original Tower Grove South location of Local Harvest Cafe & Catering (3137 Morgan Ford Road; 314-772-8815) is missing. She was last seen at Mangia Italiano (3145 South Grand Boulevard; 314-664-8585) at about 2:30 a.m. Sunday morning.

When Gut Check called Local Harvest this morning, we spoke with former executive chef Clara Moore. She told us that, as she understands it, "No one saw [Birtley] leave [Mangia], and they don't know who she was hanging out with."

Birtley was driving a silver Chevrolet Cobalt with Missouri license plates SE3 L7W.

Birtley's colleagues and friends have filed a missing person report with the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department. Anyone with information about Birtley's whereabouts should contact the police.
