Kimberly Nicole Arrington was just 16 years old when she disappeared from Montgomery, Alabama. She was last seen on October 31, 1998, when she left to go to a nearby store. Kimberly has a scar on her abdomen and her ears are pierced. Her nicknames are Kim and Kiwi.

Despite years without news, her family has not given up. Her dad still waits for her to come home. Her sister has named her child after her. Kim Arrington’s mother, who was ill, unfortunately died in 2005 without knowing what happened to her daughter. Dad remembers “a good girl” who enjoyed listening to music, enjoyed dancing, and learning about computers at school. She didn’t cause any troubles.

On the afternoon of Oct. 30, 1998, Kimberly left her home. She went to the CVS Pharmacy on Forest Avenue in Montgomery to pick up some candy and soda. This store was close to her house. She never made it to the store. There is no trace of her. Someone people think she stopped to give a person directions. Maybe she was forced into a car. However, nobody saw anything. No witnesses, nothing. I always wondered about CCTV camera’s from nearby stores, ATM machine, gas stations, etc.

According to NamUs, Kim was wearing an emerald ring with two diamonds. I wish we had a picture of that ring.
