KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -

A woman who says she was a former girlfriend of Kylr Yust said he reached out to her the day after Jessica Runions disappeared. 

She requested to not be identified but did speak on the phone to KCTV5's Amy Anderson. 

She said the two met not long after Kara Kopetsky went missing. The two dated and have been friends ever since. 

She said Yust called her last Friday, one day after Runions went missing. 

"He was like well, 'I just want to go driving around because my birthday is coming up on Wednesday and I'm not gonna see you for a little bit,'" she said. 

In light of recent events, the conversation haunts her. 

"It terrifies the hell out of me - it genuinely shook me to my core," she said. "I could not sleep the whole weekend after hearing about that." 

Yust has not been charged with anything aside from knowingly burning Runions' vehicle. 

He was returned to Jackson County after his arrest in Benton County last Sunday.
