    Details of Disappearance
    Porco was last seen leaving her family's residence in the Woodlake Villas condominium complex on Hilton Head Island, South Carolina on November 29, 1986. She had an argument with her mother during the evening hours about her curfew and left at 10:30 p.m. Porco called a friend afterwards and asked her to meet by the complex's pool. Her friend arrived shortly thereafter, but only found Porco's red sweater by the pool area. She has never been heard from again.

    Porco's savings account has not been utilized since her 1986 disappearance. She did not have any extra cash or belongings with her at the time she vanished, and she left behind between $100 and $200 in a savings account. Foul play is suspected in her case.

    Christopher J. Below is a possible suspect in Porco's case and in several other murders and disappearances of young women, including Mary Kushto, Heather Teague and Shaylene Farrell. A photograph of him is posted below this case summary. He pleaded guilty to attempted involuntary manslaughter in connection with the shooting of Kathern Fetzer, whose body was never found, and is currently serving time in an Ohio prison. All of Below's suspected victims are dark-haired young women. One of Porco's missing person fliers was found inside his home in Lodi, Ohio in 1992. Below's sister stated he carried missing person posters for several women in a box, but investigators have been unable to find the box. Investigators know Below, a native of Kentucky, was living in South Carolina during the late 1980s and early 1990s. They are trying to determine his whereabouts at the time of Porco's disappearance. It should be emphasized that he has not been charged in connection with any case besides Fetzer's and only conjecture links him to Porco's case.

    Porco's mother believes that her daughter's remains are buried in the North Forest Beach area, but no evidence has been discovered to prove any theory. Porco's case remains unsolved.

    Shortly after Porco left the apartment, her father allegedly drove around for a few hours looking for the teen.

    His whereabouts during that time were never established, according to the advisory.

    "A reward of up to $2,500 is being offered by the Beaufort County Sheriff's Office for information about a Hilton Head Island teen missing since 1986.

    Kristina Porco, 16, was reported as a runaway by her mother following a domestic dispute at their Woodlake Villas apartment on Nov. 29, 1986, according to an advisory issued by the sheriff's office Sunday morning.

    A friend who reported receiving a telephone call from Porco after the argument asked the teen to meet her at the apartment complex's pool area.

    However, when the friend arrived at the pool area she was unable to locate Porco, but did find the missing teen's red sweater draped over a lawn chair nearby.

    Porco left on foot with no money or extra clothing, the advisory stated.

    In addition, her savings account, which contained a few hundred dollars, was never accessed after the date of her disappearance.

    Shortly after Porco left the apartment, her father allegedly drove around for a few hours looking for the teen.

    His whereabouts during that time were never established, according to the advisory.

    Anyone with information about this case can contact Capt. Bob Bromage at 843-255-3402 or at the email: robertb@bcgov.net.

    Here's a link to some older articles:

    http://z10.invisionfree.com/usedtobe...showtopic=8700

    Based on clues and speculation, Kristina's mother believes that her remains may be in the North Forest Beach area.
    I'm not sure if Kristina's mother has expanded publicly on why she believes her daughter's remains may be in this area.

    Shortly after Porco left the apartment, her father allegedly drove around for a few hours looking for the teen.

    His whereabouts during that time were never established, according to the advisory.
    I was curious if this is the first time this information has been made public. None of the previous reports that I could find mention this and most of them say that the parents didn't realize Kristina was missing until 24 hours later.

    Human remains found in Hilton Head woods

    "The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office is investigating reports of skeletal human remains found on Hilton Head Island Saturday in a wooded area on Spanish Wells Rd., according to the sheriff’s office.

    The remains were found by the landowner late Christmas Eve afternoon, said Sherriff’s Office spokesman Capt. Bob Bromage. Deputies arrived at the scene and confirmed the remains were human. The identity of the deceased as well as the cause and manner of death are still not known due to the condition of the remains, Bromage said. The age of the remains is also not yet determined..."

    Could this be her?
