Nancy Lynn Kirkpatrick, age 16, went missing from Columbia Falls, Montana on April 21, 1976.
There is very little information available about her case; in fact, nothing even states where in Columbia Falls she was last seen, or by whom. Looks like this is another one to add to my list of record requests.
What is known, is that she was a good student, and into the ‘hippie’ thing – and that she had a boyfriend, whom she may have recently broken up with around the time of her disappearance.
Her family does not believe she left on her own.
I wish we knew a bit more about what happened. Did she leave for school one morning and just never come back? Did she tend to hitchhike? Did her boyfriend cooperate with authorities? Did the authorities even search for her, or did they tell her family not to worry, she’d show up in a couple days, as has been the case so many times?
Come home soon, Nancy.
