The family of a local woman missing since 1989 is still looking for answers.

19-year-old Kimberley McAndrews disappeared on August 12, 1989 after leaving the Canadian Tire store on Quinpool road at the end of her shift at 4:20 p.m.

Her family said she seemed to vanish. Her bank accounts were left untouched and all her possessions were left behind.

Kimberley’s sister, Megan Adams, said police were unable to find any trace of Kimberley despite it being a fairly public area.

“On a sunny sunny day in August,” she said. “4:20 [in the afternoon] there was always lots of people around that area, the back entrance to Canadian Tire, the parking lot area is still very similar there.”

Adams said her sisters and boyfriend were planning to see some buskers that day but they could not find Kimberley when they went to pick her up.

Her family said the trickle of tips to police have seemed to dry up and her family is appealing to anyone with information to come forward.

“These anniversaries of tragedies are more about the people that don’t think about them the other 364 days of the year, and that’s definitely not the case for our family. She’s always in our hearts and in our mind,” said Adams.

The case is also a part of the province’s Justice Rewards for Major Unsolved Crimes program, which provides a $150,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for Kim’s disappearance. Anyone with information is asked to contact police, or submit a tip anonymously through Crime Stoppers.
