MP of the week: Angelia Hilbert

This week’s featured missing person is Angelia Spaulding Hilbert, a 22-year-old woman who disappeared after leaving work in Louisville, Kentucky on June 3, 1989. She was supposed to follow her parents (her in her car, them in theirs) to Owensboro, where they were moving, but never arrived there. I’m not sure at what point she became separated from her parents, but she was last seen in the area of Dry Ridge Road at about midnight.

For some reason she wasn’t reported missing until June 16; I don’t know if the police refused to accept a report before then, or what. On June 26, her car was found abandoned in a nightclub parking lot.

Some distinguishing info about Hilbert: she has a surgical scar on her back where she had metal rod inserted in her spine to correct scoliosis. Probably that rod has a unique serial number; medical devices of that kind usually do. She was pregnant at the time of her disappearance but I’m not sure how far along.

If still alive, Angelia would be in her mid-fifties today.

(Sorry forgot to put this up yesterday.)

    There more than 100 miles between Louisville and Owensboro, talking about her leaving her work before their trip, I guess that was in the evening, won’t be surprise they got separated on their way, this was a time there were no cellphone or GPS, I wonder whether she knew the way or at least had a map with her ? after lost sight of her parent’s car, she must have to find a place to park her car in order to reading map or asking for direction, then anything could happen to her

    Hi Meaghan. I could have sworn you posted something about the missing 5-year old girl, Ulmer Moon Utah Wells, from TN. I just read that her aunt, Rose Marie Bly, went missing in 2009. She is on The Charley Project.

    Silvia Petterm’s new book “Cold Case Chronicles” is a very interesting read about old missing cases.

    Judge Crater, Dorothy Arnold, Bessie and Glen Hyde, Connie Smith, Everett Ruess, etc.
