Thankfully, a few media outlets have covered the disappearance of missing 20 year old Heather “Kitty” Riggio. Heather, a petite blonde, was last seen wearing a pink top, jeans and high heels. On the afternoon of May 6, 2007 she left her family’s house in North Miami Beach and got into a white SUV, police say. She has never been seen since.
The Miami Herald wrote a good article about it on today’s paper. They have published a series of about 8 or 9 articles about Heather’s disappearance. You can find those articles in the Miami Herald archives. The writer, David Ovalle, included information about the Kid Finders Network.
He writes: “The billboard is being provided to North Miami Beach police by the Kid Finders Network, a West Palm Beach-based volunteer organization run by Sherri and Dennis Milstead. Kid Finders, which relies on donations, provides mobile billboards aimed at finding missing young people. The price of Riggio’s mobile billboard — the printing of the banner and trailer upkeep — is about $3,000, footed so far by the Milsteads. ”We work off donations and we’re still trying to get sponsors,” Sherri Milstead said.“We’re hanging by a shoestring.”
Here’s another article and video about Heather on CBS4. (The link is no longer active) And another on WSVN including video. You can find more information about Heather Riggio’s case by doing a Google search. There’s over 26,000 pages of search results.
