Gosh darn it

I was working just now on adding/updating APs for cases. I know the NCMEC had released a new AP for Kathryn Quackenbush, which had previously had none at all, even though she’s been missing for 35 years. I had bookmarked the poster and I went back to it… and the AP is gone.

Muttergrumble. Why on earth would they go to all the trouble to make one and then remove it? Maybe it’s a mistake. I don’t know who to email about it but I might call the hotline.

I looked elsewhere online — on Kathryn’s NamUs profile, and in a Google Image search — but that AP is well and truly gone. I wish I had grabbed it right away.

Sometimes the NCMEC adds info to posters, only to remove the info about five minutes later. They added an extra photo of Stephen Beard to his poster and I snatched it up straightaway because I had a feeling it would be gone soon, and it was, within a day or two.

At least I just noticed something that IS still on Kathryn’s poster that I don’t currently have: her nickname is Kitty. I’ll put that up anyhow.

I wish I knew more about her case. Newspapers.com has several hits for both “Kathryn Quackenbush” and “Kitty Quackenbush” but they’re all for someone who clearly isn’t my missing teenager.

    Did you ever call them? Her age progression hasn’t been put back up.

    I did. But, it is up to my wife and she is still reluctant.

    The black and white picture is definitely Kitty and the progressive picture is identical to her mother, my sister.

    I was Kitty’s juvenile counselor at DJS & she seemed to be doing well at her mom’s home. I still think of her & wish there could be closure to this case.
