On the afternoon of August 26, 1995, 23-year-old Heather Teague disappeared from Newburgh Beach in Henderson County, Kentucky. She was sunbathing on the beach next to the Ohio River when a witness saw a white man approach her. He allegedly grabbed her by the hair and dragged her into the woods.
The police arrived shortly after and began to search the beach. They found a piece of Heather’s bathing suit but didn’t locate Heather. She has not been seen or heard from since.
Heather’s mother Sarah has not given up on seeking justice for her daughter. In 2007 she had Heather legally declared dead so she could obtain the FBI’s records of the case. In 2016 Sarah filed a lawsuit after Kentucky State Police denied her open records request relating to the original 911 call reporting her daughter's abduction.
If you have any information on this case please contact Heather’s mother Sarah Teague 270-836-7643.
