The whereabouts of a 30-year-old Riverside woman remain a mystery — nearly three weeks after family members last spoke to her — prompting police to turn today to the public for help solving the case.
Kimberly Lynn Dow was last seen on Sept. 9, and Riverside police now question the circumstances of her disappearance.
According to Sgt. Dan Russell, Dow’s mother summoned investigators Sunday to her house in the 4300 block of Hillside Street to report her daughter missing, saying she had not spoken to her since Sept. 9.
There was heightened concern about the victim’s welfare because she has a medical condition that requires regular medication, and Dow’s mother was not sure whether her daughter had taken any with her, Russell said.
“Detectives from the Robbery-Homicide Unit are involved in the investigation, and through the investigation believe the victim’s disappearance is suspicious in nature,” the sergeant said, but did not elaborate.
Dow is white, 5-foot-6, 150 pounds with shoulder-length brown hair and brown eyes.
Anyone with information about the case was urged to call Detectives Jim Simons or Jim Brandt at (951) 353-7138 or (951) 353-7137.
