KSP Still Searching for Answers in the Kidnapping of Heather Teague

Date of News Release: 08/23/2012

Heather D. Teague Playing Card

(Henderson, KY) -- August 26th marks the 17th anniversary of the kidnapping of Heather D. Teague. According to KSP, Teague was last seen on August 26, 1995 at Newburgh Beach in Henderson County.

Victim: Heather D. Teague

White female, 23 years of age at the time of the kidnapping.

Location: Newburgh Beach, Henderson (Henderson County), Kentucky.

Last Seen: 17 years ago.

A witness observed the victim being kidnapped at gunpoint from Newburgh Beach in Henderson County.

Multiple KSP detectives have worked diligently on this case and have exhausted many leads; however, KSP is still committed to providing answers for the Teague family. As social media has become more mainstream for many people, KSP detectives continually monitor networking sites such as Topix, Face Book, Twitter and other similar chat sites due to recent allegations made on the Teague case. People are using these forums to post information about this case with some claiming to have first-hand knowledge of the offense. Unfortunately, upon investigation these claims proved to be false. Those who make false statements about any open or cold cases on social sites need to be aware that charges may be sought for falsely reporting an incident.

We respectfully request if anyone has any information regarding this case and/or the kidnapping of Heather Teague, please contact KSP Post 16 at 270.826.3312 or 270.685.3927.
