    January 10 2004

    The family of a Denton County woman missing since Dec. 28 will add $10,000 to the $1,000 Crime Stoppers reward for information about her disappearance, relatives said Saturday.

    Katherine Lynn "Kathy" Stobaugh, 43, was last seen at the home of her estranged husband, Charles Stobaugh. Ms. Stobaugh is described as white, 5 feet 7 inches tall, weighing about 180 pounds, with sandy hair and green eyes. She wears glasses and was wearing a gold necklace and earrings.

    Denton County sheriff's investigators and the Texas Rangers consider Mr. Stobaugh, who is separated from Ms. Stobaugh, a person of interest in the case.

    Anyone with information about her disappearance can call Crime Stoppers anonymously at 1-800-388-8477.

    Reward for Stobaugh up to $61,000

    What happened to Kathy Stobaugh?

    That's the question bothering her family, friends, Denton County sheriff deputies, the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Texas Rangers.

    Louis Hames, her uncle and spokesman for the family said, "I see this on TV and it's somebody else. But it's the last thing you think about when you go to be and the first thought when you get up -- you don't get any sleep."

    Katherine Stobaugh, a 43-year-old, 180 pound, 5-foot-7-inch woman with sandy brown hair, was added to a list missing persons on the Texas Department of Public Safety Web site Friday.

    According to the Texas Missing Persons Clearinghouse (www.txdps.state.tx.us/mpch) Katherine Lynn Stobaugh was last seen on Dec. 28 wearing a white shirt, gray flannel pants and a black hooded jacket. She also was wearing glasses and a gold necklace and earrings. The web site lists her case type as "Endangered -- Foul Play Possible."

    Keela Stobaugh, her sister-in-law, corrected that date to Dec. 29. She said, "We just don't know what happened. We honestly don't know."

    It was reported that the missing woman was last seen at her estranged husband's Sanger home. Charles Edward Stobaugh told investigators he spoke to her and then watched her drive away. The next morning he awoke and found her car in his driveway, said Tom Reedy, a Denton County sheriff's spokesman.


    Crime Stoppers is offering a $1,000 reward to anyone with information leading to an arrest in the case. Call Denton County Crime Stoppers at (800) 388-8477 or (940) 349-1555.

    Search for woman includes husband's farm

    SANGER - Law enforcement agents from the FBI, the Denton County Sheriff's Department and the Texas Rangers were searching the property of a missing woman's estranged husband, officials said.

    The Texas Rangers obtained a search warrant Thursday afternoon from Denton County and started to explore the 105-acre farm about 10 a.m. Friday.

    Katherine Lynn Stobaugh, 43, disappeared Dec. 28. Her daughter reported her missing four days later.

    Stobaugh's car was found in the driveway of Charles Edward Stobaugh's northwest Denton property. He told law enforcement agents that he spoke to his wife on the evening of Dec. 28 and then watched her drive away. The next morning he found her car in his driveway.

    Katherine Stobaugh filed for divorce in May. In June, Charles Stobaugh was served with a temporary restraining order.

    "There's no evidence that says she ever left this property," said Tom Reedy, Denton County Sheriff's Department spokesman. "If she's not here we need to know, and if she is here we need to find her."

She told police that her brother said Stobaugh had gone to their father's house and that she had seen her mother's car there.

    Year-Old Case Still Stumps Investigators

    December 28, 2005

    SANGER, Texas -- Katherine Stobaugh went missing from Sanger on Dec. 29, 2004. Investigators found her vehicle parked outside her estranged husband's home just days later, but have yet to locate Stobaugh or her remains.

    Stobaugh, a Denton County school teacher, was missing for five days before her disappearance was reported to police, according to authorities.

    After finding her vehicle, sheriff's deputies focused their search on her husband's home and property. Investigators said they consider the man, Charles Stobaugh, to be a potential suspect in the case.

    "We haven't found Katherine Stobaugh," Tom Reedy, of the Denton County Sheriff's Office, said. "We suspect foul play, and the person we want to talk to -- which is Charles Stobaugh, her husband -- won't talk to us."

    She files for divorce.....gets a restraining order.....goes to his house...I wonder what for....her car is found in his driveway but she has disappeared.

    I wonder if LE took dogs out on that property? He won't cooperate???????

    I wonder why it took so long for her to be listed as missing? Did her son live with her or the husband? If he lived with his mom the boy would have realized right away that she was missing. Can't figure out why the family waited so long to go to LE.

    We drove through Sanger and Denton on Christmas Eve - I noticed two huge billboards that I don't think were there before. I think they're fairly new.

    Interesting, this case seems to be heating up after a year. It sure sounds like the exhusband might know something.

    I'd bet my teeth her husband knows what happened to her. Who else would have motive? He sees her drive away, next morning her car is back in his driveway.... Maybe her family didn't call to report her missing right was because they thought she and hubby were working out their differences?

    Searching for answers

    This month, relatives of Kathy Stobaugh scoured the grounds of a local cemetery and a dry creek bed nearby, searching for a clue to whether the missing kindergarten teacher is alive or dead.
    The search was in vain, like more than 20 others the family has conducted since the Sanger woman vanished Dec. 29, 2004.
    "We checked that area for whatever we could find, but there was nothing out there that could help us out," said her brother Chris Munday of Mansfield.
    No one has been charged with a crime in connection with Stobaugh's disappearance. Charles Stobaugh, her estranged husband, is the only suspect, according to the Denton County Sheriff's Department.
    He was given the opportunity to take a lie-detector test in January 2005 but declined, telling police that he doesn't know what happened to his wife, investigators said. Charles Stobaugh, whose phone is unlisted, could not be reached for comment.
    Friends and family are determined to keep the investigation going until Kathy Stobaugh, a mother of two, is found.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    I realise that LE is looking for her in Texas, and that is the most likely place that they will find her.

    I have been searching for a Match to a Jane Doe, that was found in February 2005 (estimated to have died in November 2004) that the reconstruction bears a strong resemblence to Katherine



    The stats don't match though as Katherine was 43 and Jane Doe is estimated to be 25-35. The big question is why would Katherine be in New Jersey?

    Thought I'd mention it.

    The pics show a very strong resemblence imo but I went over all the details and even though quite a bit of things are off but not that much that it couldn't be her. The height and weight as well as age but these have been off before, there is no mention of the watch for instance but lists gold jewelry. Fingerprints are available though and there's no mention of clothes which would have ended up in the water anyway but there aren't any details on shoes or socks in the clothing description for the missing woman. The estimate on the timeline fits if you take into account that there's a month in between because surely they cannot give a more accurate time of death that too can be off a little. As for demographics I don't think that's a reason to rule her out because she may have left the state to get away from her husband for instance or many other possibilities.

    There was one black cowboy boot found on Jane Doe (which made me think of Texas). The only thing I can envision is if she was enticed to go to New York for New Years? (its in the area) and something happened while she was there?

    Don't know

    Has anyone called this tip in? (That she seems to match a Jane Doe in NJ?) The resemblance is very striking.
