    This is a recently added case to NamUs, I wonder if the NCMEC could do an age progression for her?

    Any more details? Why was she with her uncle? Was the male older than her? Any sightings?

    Rhetorical questions: I wonder why there is such limited information online and why Kattie was only recently added to NamUs. I could find nothing other than the recent information that she is missing. It's as if she didn't exist before she left. Who are her parents? Did they just assume she ran away with a boyfriend? In those days LE wasn't too helpful with presumed runaways. Why isn't there a photo of her in her teens? Is anyone in her family (younger siblings shown in photo) now looking for her? If so, I wish they would start a FB page. It's really sad.

    I agree, this is sad. They're all sad...but this one just feel particularly sad. So the last person to have allegedly seen her was her uncle? Just to add to the rhetorical questions. What about the Dairy Queen, did people there know her? Did she have a driver's license, car? Or did she tend to walk everywhere? What was her typical route either way? How were things at school? Had she "runaway" before?

    She was a 16 year old girl, she was talking to her friends--what did they know? If she really was meeting up with a boy, one of those friends knew, I can guarantee it, and if she hadn't said anything to them then the meeting up with a guy who lives by Dairy Queen story doesn't hold up.

    My first question: Was her uncle cleared as a suspect?

    How could they possibly clear her uncle as a suspect? The only information they have about her disappearance, including the date and time she went missing, came from him.

    True. I think what I meant to say was, I'd have a closer look at the uncle and his story.
