    Canada - Kimberley McAndrews, 19, Halifax, NS, 12 Aug 1989

    Family of local woman missing for 28 years still searching for answers


    19-year-old Kimberley McAndrews disappeared on August 12, 1989 after leaving the Canadian Tire store on Quinpool road at the end of her shift at 4:20 p.m.

    Her family said she seemed to vanish. Her bank accounts were left untouched and all her possessions were left behind.

    Kimberley’s sister, Megan Adams, said police were unable to find any trace of Kimberley despite it being a fairly public area.
    “On a sunny sunny day in August,” she said. “4:20 [in the afternoon] there was always lots of people around that area, the back entrance to Canadian Tire, the parking lot area is still very similar there.”

    Adams said her sisters and boyfriend were planning to see some buskers that day but they could not find Kimberley when they went to pick her up.

    Happened to come across this interesting article from 2010 which referenced Kimberly and some other missing girls in NS. Lengthy article.

    Canada’s Sex Traffickers: C2C’s Investigative Report

    It has been more than twenty years since Kimberly Ann McAndrew vanished after leaving her cashier job at a Canadian Tire in Halifax.

    It was August 12, 1989 and in the months that followed, a small handful of local authorities would come to believe that the 19-year-old daughter of a retired RCMP officer had been kidnapped by pimps from the small community of North Preston. The rural cluster of dead-end roads about a half-hour northeast of Halifax was, as it seemingly continues to be, a largely ignored breeding ground for gangsters that cooked up a specialty in running girls.

    Nearly 1,800 kilometres away, in what was becoming the epicenter of pimp crackdowns, Toronto Police Juvenile Task Force head Dave Perry was skeptical of the theory brewing among his East Coast counterparts. Girls aren’t just abducted into this game, Perry thought. He had seen how it worked in Toronto: Seduction, coercion, the boyfriend-girlfriend relationship that convinces vulnerable teens that they are fighting for corner space and selling their bodies for the good of the relationship.

    Perry’s team had identified what they called The Triangle: Girls and young women were moved between Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal at the hands of their pimps who took every penny earned on the corner. In the early 1990s, Nova Scotia became part of that equation.

    “In Toronto, we were hearing a lot about these Halifax pimps and how violent they are and how they’re taking girls, moving them all across Canada, down to the United States,” Perry recalls.
    Halifax RCMP Insp. Brad Sullivan was a constable when he and his partner took the 1989 disappearance of Kimberly Ann McAndrew and pushed the Nova Scotia pimping problem into the spotlight.

    “We really saw or had information that really led us to believe that it was something that needed to be looked at,” Sullivan says.

    Perry was sitting at home one September afternoon, hours ahead of a planned press conference with King’s mother, when he received a phone call that would solidify much of what he had heard about Nova Scotia pimps. A teenaged girl had just walked into the police station, terrified, saying she had been abducted in Montreal by pimps from North Preston and that she and others were being forced to prostitute in Toronto.

    The teen's story led Perry’s team to two side-by-side rooms in a downtown hotel where they found a handful of Nova Scotia girls. “They were telling us about these pimps from North Preston,” he says. “We were told they were armed with a handgun and they had a stun gun they used on the girls.”
