    Details of Disappearance

    Kimberly canceled plans to attend her high school's Junior Prom on the night of May 11, 1986 after an argument with her boyfriend. She went out with a female friend instead and they met two 25-year-old male acquaintances. Kimberly stopped by her house on Jewell Street at 11:00 p.m. and told her sister she would return home in an hour. She was later seen entering a late-model white Pontiac Trans Am with one of the men.

    Kimberly did not bring her purse, makeup or any of her personal belongings with her when she departed her home. The man she was with later stated he dropped Kimberly off at approximately 3:45 a.m. the following morning. The friend told authorities that Kimberly was still upset about the fight with her boyfriend and requested to be let out of the car on Jewell Street half a mile from home. She allegedly claimed she wanted to be alone and walk the remaining distance to her house. She has never been seen again. Foul play is suspected in her case.

    The man Kimberly was last seen with is considered a person of interest in Kimberly's disappearance, but has never been charged in connection with it. Her father doesn't believe his story about Kimberly asking to get out of the car and walk home by herself; he stated she wouldn't have done that because it was a cold night and she was afraid of the dark. Kimberly's father says he has maintained contact with the individual over the years since Kimberly's disappearance in hopes of finding out what happened to his daughter.

    Suspected child serial killer Lewis S. Lent Jr. was investigated for possible involvement in Kimberly's disappearance. A photograph of him is posted below this case summary. He was convicted of murdering a Massachusetts child and Sara Wood, whose body has not been found, and was investigated in the disappearances of James Lusher, Tammie McCormick, Monique Santiago and several other cases. Lent has never been charged in any case besides Sara's, however. Police believe it is unlikely that Lent was involved in Kimberly's case, but the possibility is not being ruled out.

    Kimberly enjoyed writing poetry and suntanning in 1986. She has two sisters. Her mother died in 1988, but her father still lives at same home they occupied in 1986. Some agencies state that Kimberly vanished from Livermore Falls, Maine. That city's police force is investigating her disappearance. Kimberly was declared legally dead in 1993. Her case remains unsolved.
