    September 14 1990 after arguing with him and, saying she was going to her mother's home.
    Perry's mother has legal custody of her, she became upset because he had told her to leave her mother's home and live with him.

    It keeps changing!
    Wow. SE Portland (Especially Laurelhurst) was a much different place 23 years ago... I thought it was fairly dangerous, I guess it's still not the nicest part of town.

    So wait, she was seen in Albany, then a few days later in Wilsonville? But her mother lived a few miles north of Albany? I'm confused.

    Actually, the Laurelhurst area is a very affluent part of the city. A little farther north where her belongings were found was a different story back then, however. (Now it is also a very sought after place to live.) I'm very curious about the friend who said he killed her. Bizarre.

    Cold case: Detectives searching for answers in 1990 disappearance of 10-year-old girl


    Where is Kacey Perry? That's the question that weighs on the minds of Portland detectives more than a quarter century after the 10-year-old little girl first disappeared from her father's home.

    After all this time, detectives say they are still fighting to find her.

    The case of Kacey Perry captivated a region, shattered a family and haunts investigators to this day.

    "I've spoken to detectives that worked on this case and this is definitely a case they've carried with them emotionally since," said Portland Police Detective Meredith Hopper.
    Detectives have their theories about what happened that night, but short of finding the evidence to prove it, they remain theories.

    They've questioned people in connection with Kacey's disappearance, but no one was ever officially named a suspect.

    "Detectives did a great job on the case, but unfortunately they were never able to find the answer to where she went," said Hopper.

    At this point Hopper believes Kacey is not alive.

    "I'd like to say yes, but it's been many years and I would be surprised," Hopper added.

    Yet still, her pursuit for answers continues.

    This young girl was living in a makeshift camp, and the age would match, if Kacey had survived that long!
    Also think there is a facial similarity?

    Just doesn't make sense to me, the father wants her to move in with him than let's her runaway to her mothers home after the fight? She's 10! Wish there was more details about how/when she left following the fight, did she sneak out when the dad wasn't looking? Run out the door in front of the dad? Read some interesting suspicions on ancestry from her brother...
