Kimberly Rachelle Norwood (12) - Hallsville TX, 1989
Missing Since: May 20, 1989 from Hallsville, Texas
Classification: Non-Family Abduction
Date Of Birth: October 12, 1976
Age: 12 years old
Height and Weight: 5'4 - 5'5, 95 - 110 pounds
Distinguishing Characteristics: Caucasian female. Brown hair, brown eyes. Norwood has a two-inch scar on her abdomen from kidney surgery. Her ears are pierced. She is right-handed. Her nicknames are Kim and Kimbo.
Clothing/Jewelry Description: A white t-shirt with a teddy bear design or Milk Duds images and red and black cows imprinted on it, dark blue or black button-fly jeans, white socks, black Keds tennis shoes, a black hair bow, a Swatch watch, and some rings, including a gold ring with an aquamarine stone.
Details of Disappearance
Norwood was last seen at approximately 5:15 p.m. in her hometown of Hallsville, Texas. She was walking with three friends in the Caney Creek Estates subdivision at the time. The four children went their separate ways less than one mile from Norwood's family's house. She never arrived home and has never been heard from again.
Less than an hour before her disappearance, Norwood had an argument with her mother over the telephone because her mother refused to let her spend the night at a friend's home. Norwood is not believed to have run away from home, however; her parents think she was abducted. They theorize that the kidnapper(s) lived nearby, because the subdivision where she vanished is rural and densely wooded and a person unfamiliar with the area could become lost easily.
The home where Norwood resided at the time of her disappearance has since been torn down, but her parents live in another house close by. She was within two weeks of graduating Hallsville Middle School at the time she went missing, and was due to enter Hallsville Junior High School in the fall. She was a good student who had tested into accelerated learning classes. Norwood's hobbies in 1989 included horseback riding and spending time with her friends and her sister. Her case remains unsolved.
