    TX - Kimberly Norwood, 12, Hallsville, 20 May 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.

    Renewed Hope

    http://arklatexhomepage.com/content/fulltext/?cid=72901

    1 Sept 09

    On May 20, 1989, Kimberly Norwood disappeared from a back road in Harrison County, Texas. The 12-year-old was walking home from a friend's house, but never arrived.

    Twenty years have past since Kimberly vanished. Her story is much like that of Jaycee Dugard, who was kidnapped when she was just 11-years-old. But after 18 years, there's a happy ending for Jaycee. She was reunited with her family Saturday.

    Jaycee's story is bringing renewed hope to Kimberly Norwood's mother, Janice.

    "Oh I'm, I'm so happy for that mother. That's just got to be the best thing that could ever happen," said Janice Norwood, as she held back tears.

    She hopes Jaycee's discovery will spark interest in her daughter's case.

    we actually lived only a few miles from Hallsville, before my hubby retired and we moved back north. Any how.........I remember hearing about this case when we lived there ( 1998-2006) and researching ect...........at that time the speculation was that she had been placed in one of the many deep wells in the area........don't even remember where or how I heard that but it had to have been some where on the net.

    Ah, creepyyyy. Still, the ring makes me think that she's princess blue. I've been looking at it since I found out about this girl.

    Kimberley Norwood, 12 - Missing Since: 20 May 1989 from Hallsville TX

    Kimberly Norwood - Ruled Out By DNA

    http://www.projectjason.org/forums/i...08.0;topicseen

    Both her's and Princess Blue's face are kinda square. The height is off a bit but I read somewhere that she had a ring with a blue stone in it. It could maybe be her dad or uncle's? I know when I was little I took my dad's class ring to play dress up.

    EDIT: http://www.lrcf.net/missing/Kimberly...lyNorwood.html
    Thats where I got the ring. Princess Blue's is silver, is it possible that it was just like a finish that wore off?

    I am waiting to hear back from TXDPS on whether Kimberly Norwood has been submitted before as a possible match to being Princess Blue or if she has already been ruled out as being Princess Blue. I will post when I find out.

    Don't know what this is worth but I live in Hallsville and work with a bunch of people who lived in Hallsville their whole lives and they say there have always been rumors from day one about the family being involved. Apparently there were several incidences at the house prior to the disappearance. Not sure about the details so I don't know how reliable the info is.

    Texas girl, 12, disappeared in 1989

    Of all the experiences they shared in their 12 years together, Janice Norwood still recalls a special moment when her daughter Kimberly confided in her while they were going into town one day.

    [snip]

    The investigation is open and all leads are actively investigated. But no ''legitimate suspects'' have emerged in the 21-year-old case, says Tom McCool, the sheriff of Harrison County, Texas.

    "There's never been any evidence that would support an indictment or arrest,'' McCool says, adding that none of the original persons of interest in the case have been excluded. He declined to provide more details.

    Thank you for the update I4G.

    I wanted to snip this from the article because I think it's a very important statement by her Mother.

    Kimberly would be 34 on October 12. Norwood ardently insists that Kimberly ''will be'' 34, repeating that she believes her daughter is alive.
    Most of us as outsiders looking in would assume that Kimberly is no longer with us.

    But the tenacity in which a great many parents of missing children still believe their children are alive even (as this Mother who's daughter has been missing for almost 21 years) for years and decades leaves me humbled and a bit grateful I have not had to share this experience.

    Prayers for Kimberly's family.

    I would say your information is very unreliable. This family was never suspected of having anything to do with their daughter's disappearance. Her parents have searched for her tirelessly including appearing on Oprah Winfrey, and search for her to this day.

    Texas girl, 12, disappeared in 1989



    http://edition.cnn.com/2010/CRIME/09...ood/index.html

    Kimberly never made it to her junior high school. She disappeared on May 20, 1989, a Saturday. She had spent the night at a friend's house in her hometown of Hallsville, Texas.

    She came home around lunchtime, had a bite to eat and cleaned her aquarium, Norwood says. Afterward, she went out again to play with friends.

    Close to 5 p.m., Kimberly called her mother from a friend's house, asking if the girl could sleep over at the Norwood home.

    Norwood said no, because she ''really didn't care for that little girl.'' Kimberly pleaded, ''But we won't bother nobody,'' Norwood says.

    Mother and daughter hung up the phone, both in a bit of a huff. That was the last time they spoke.

    About an hour later, Kimberly was reportedly walking with three friends when they went their separate ways less than a mile from Norwood's house. It was the last time anyone saw her.
