Kimberly McAndrew

File Number: 104200065

Halifax, Nova Scotia: On August 12, 1989, 19-year-old Kimberly McAndrew punched the clock at 4:21 p.m., walked out the back door of the Canadian Tire store on Quinpool Road in Halifax and vanished, never to be seen or heard from again.

The events of August 12th, 1989

[The Reader's Digest] 2002:

A happy, well-adjusted Dalhousie University undergrad, Kimberly was working for the summer as a cashier at the store. Her sister, her sister's boyfriend and Kimberly's boyfriend were to pick her up when she finished work at five.

But it was a quiet day at the store, and Kimberly's supervisor told her that she could punch out early. It wouldn't have been unusual for Kimberly to walk home on such a beautiful afternoon. The store was about a 15-minute walk from the apartment where she lived with her two sisters.

When they left to pick her up, Kimberly's sister and friends drove the same route to the store that she would have taken had she walked home. There was no sign of her.

Intelligent, outgoing, well liked at work, Kimberly was her usual upbeat self the day she went missing. Her father, Cyril, a retired RCMP officer, says that she longed to get the silver braces removed from her teeth. She would never have missed the appointment with her dentist that was to have taken place three days after she disappeared.

Possible Sightings (shortly after her shift ended)

[Halifax Regional Police]:

She was last seen at the Gardenia Flower Shop in Penhorn Mall in Dartmouth. She was identified by an employee at the flower shop as having bought a balloon and a rose. At the time of her disappearance, she was wearing pleated, ankle-length navy cotton slacks with slash pockets in front and one pocket in the back, a white, short-sleeved "Esprit" t-shirt with red and green squares, a navy cotton oversize cardigan, and jade green flat-heeled slip-on loafers.

The police have conducted hundreds of interviews, several polygraph tests, and have even followed tips from psychics who contacted the department.

Anyone with information on Kimberly's disappearance is asked to contact police at 902-490-5016. Anonymous tips can be sent to Crime Stoppers by calling toll-free 1-800-222-TIPS (8477).

The Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes Program is offering a cash reward of up to $150,000 for information in Kimberly's disappearance. They can be contacted at 1-888-710-9090.

Michael Leonard Hamm was shot dead while walking along Windsor Street near Duncan on August 28, 1985.
