    AL - Kimberly Arrington, 16, Montgomery, 30 Oct 1998

    You know, police don't usually search for missing black teens. They always assume the teen ranaway. Kimberly Arrington seems to be the only black teen who the police searched for. Now they did say it's "a possible runaway". But she was featured on the FBI site (which I'm grateful for).

    THE DETAILS

    Kimberly Arrington was last seen on October 30, 1998 in the parking lot of a pharmacy in Montgomery, Alabama. She reportedly went to the pharmacy to purchase a food item and never returned home.

    You are so right! They should look for everyone no matter what color! if they did run away then they get found, But if they didn't then they have no hope! It just makes me mad!

    Waiting for a 'good girl' to come home

    By Philip Rosenbaum, Nancy Grace producer
    January 11, 2010 7:38 a.m. EST

    New York (CNN) -- Kimberly Arrington was 16 when she disappeared more than a decade ago, and her father still waits for her to come home. So does a little girl she never met who carries her name.

    Walter Arrington remembers "a good girl" who enjoyed listening to music, dancing and learning computers at school, where she was well-behaved.

    "I've been going through this for the last 12 years, and I feel like this might be my last chance of ever seeing my daughter or somebody recovering her," he said, hoping a story would compel someone to come forward.

    Someone may have asked his daughter for directions, Walter Arrington believes, and forced her into a car as she walked to a CVS pharmacy near her home Montgomery, Alabama, on the day before Halloween, October 30, 1998.

    "Most people liked her, and she was very friendly towards everybody,'' he said. "I felt like maybe that's part of the reason why they got her.''

    Some details from above article:

    - Last seen Oct 30, 1998, ca 5pm
    - No witnesses
    - "Her disappearance remains a mystery with few clues and no strong leads, according to investigators in Montgomery."
    - "Known sex offenders in the area were questioned, and police looked into rumors and speculation. Still, a suspect was never found."
    - Originally considered a runaway, though this is not the final word in this case, and there is no proof that she did indeed run away. "But it didn't take long for us to realize that probably was not the case.''
    - She would now be 27 years old.
    - Her mother died in 2005, never knowing the fate of her daughter.

    Anyone with more information about Arrington's disappearance is asked to call the Montgomery Police Department at 1-334-241-2790 or the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children at 1-800-THE-LOST.

    Kimberly Arrington: Nancy Grace America's Missing



    The mother of Kimberly Arrington died before solving the mystery of her daughter’s disappearance. But, the 16 year old girl’s father promised his wife he would never give up looking for their daughter.

    Kimberly, as her father describes as “a good girl”, was last seen leaving her family’s home around 5pm on October 30, 1998. It was just a few blocks to the CVS pharmacy from home, but police say they don’t even know if Kimberly made it there on day of her disappearance. There was no surveillance video from the store and a credible witness has yet to come forward despite dozens of interviews.

    Pretty girl. Nice smile. It's a shame that in the richest country on Earth, if one goes missing, social class often determines whether or not they will be found.

    On the afternoon of Oct. 30, 1998, Kimberly Arrington left her home and walked the short distance to the CVS Pharmacy on Forest Avenue in Montgomery to pick up some candy and soda.

    The 16-year-old never made it to the store. She disappeared without a trace.

    Nearly 17 years later, her family is still searching for answers.

    Kimberly's father has continued searching for his daughter and recently attended a missing persons seminar in Alabama.

    http://www.fox5vegas.com/story/31182...-persons-cases

    Law enforcement officers from around Alabama were in Montgomery on Tuesday hoping to gather what they can to help solve missing person cases through the second annual Missing Persons Seminar.

    "It's a life changing event. It made my life a living hell," said Walter Arrington, Jr.

    Oct. 30, 1998 is a day Arrington will never forget. That afternoon his daughter Kimberly, 16 at the time, went walking from the house to a store and somewhere in between she vanished.

    For the past 18 years though he hasn't given up, continuing to search, hoping one day he will bring her home.

    "I've been looking for some closure on her hoping that she's still alive," says Arrington.
