    IL - Heather Mullins Zimmerman, 19, Gifford, 26 May 1997



    Heather Dawn Mullins Zimmerman


    Vital Statistics

    Date Of Birth: October 17, 1977
    Age at Time of Disappearance: 19 years old
    Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 5'6"; 115 lbs.
    Distinguishing Characteristics: White female. Blonde hair; green eyes. Right-handed.
    Marks, Scars: Tattoo of three red roses with a black stem on left outer ankle.
    Clothing: A Sears' navy / chambray shirt (size 9 - medium); stonewashed bell bottom jeans, and black St. Michael shoes (size 9 - 9 1/2).




    Circumstances of Disappearance

    Zimmerman was last seen in Gifford, Illinois on May 26, 1997.
    She went to a party in Rantoul Memorial Day Weekend. It was at a mobile home park of Route 136 just outside of town. That's the last time she was seen.
    Heather left all of her personal belongings at home. Her purse had been stolen shortly before her disappearance. She was not carrying any credit cards, cash or identification as a result. Heather was employed as a clerk at Casey's store in 1997. She never retrieved her paycheck from the business.
    Heather's husband was enlisted with the US Marines in Japan. He had come home on leave for a short time. But, since they were separated at the time, Heather resided with her parents in Gifford, Illinois.
    Extensive searches of the area produced no clues as to Heather's whereabouts. It is uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning. She did not have access to a vehicle at the time of her disappearance.

    the two cases have similarities.

    Similarities

    Both were seen in Rantoul, Illinois

    Tips came in for both cases
    that their bodies could be found in a borrow pit.

    According to the charleyproject links above, LE has a POI but will not release any information. I would hope that they are looking into his past to see if he had contact with any other girls that went missing.

    This is the first time I've heard of Heather. She's such a beautiful girl. Thirteen years is too long for her family to go without answers. Hopefully, someday they will get them.

    About time this one got a bump.

    To help things along I also suggest the following link; http://m.topix.com/forum/city/rantou...NORQKF97O73O11

    Whilst I am sceptical about the motives of some posting 'information' online, this link does contain the names of those though to be involved by locals. At least this gives a starting point for further examination.

    Local news is reporting that LE is digging in a field outside of Penfield, IL. They aren't saying who or what they're looking for, but Matt Mullins (Heather's brother) says that they may be looking for his sister (or maybe just evidence from her case?):
