Today marks the 30th anniversary of the disappearance of Kimberly McAndrew and the Special Investigation Section of the Integrated Criminal Investigation Division continues to investigate the case.
On August 12, 1989 at 4:20 p.m. 19-year-old Kimberly Ann McAndrew left the Canadian Tire store at 6203 Quinpool Road in Halifax where she was employed as a cashier. There were unconfirmed reports that Kimberly 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, Kimberly was wearing pleated navy slacks, a white short-sleeved “Esprit” t-shirt with red and green squares, a navy oversized cardigan, and jade green flat-heeled loafers.
Investigators believe that there are people who have information about what happened to Kimberly. We hope the passage of time will encourage them to do the right thing and share what they know with police. It’s never too late to come forward and the smallest piece of information may be just what’s needed to progress the investigation into Kimberly’s disappearance.
