Kimberly Janis Boyd

On April 3, 1987 Sarah Boyd and her friend, Linda McCord, attended a Gospel concert in Walterboro, SC along with Sarah’s 2 year old, Kimberly Janis Boyd.  Afterwards, heading home to Orangeburg, SC, driving through Dorchester County, they were seen by witnesses driving slowly with another car behind them.  The witnesses were unable to describe the occupants of the car following them along Route 15.

Two days later their car was found by Sarah Boyd’s husband abandoned near an intersection in rural Dorchester County, but the two friends and Kimberly were gone.   They have not been seen nor heard from since.

Kimberly was just a toddler, and Sarah Boyd and Linda McCord were both 32 years old in 1987 when they vanished.  According to reports at the time foul play wasn’t suspected and therefore the car was not processed as a crime scene.

In 2009, a member of the online missing persons site, Help Find The Missing, felt there may be a connection with a child’s unidentified remains found in Georgia in 1988.  This child, found in Ware County, Georgia wrapped in a blanket, but encased in concrete inside a suitcase, bore a resemblance to Kimberly.  A tip was sent in to investigators who replied that they were seriously looking into a possible match considering the circumstances and locations of those surrounding the disappearance of Kimberly.

According to several sources online, there is no picture or vital information available for either Sarah Boyd or Linda McCord, and this writer was unable to uncover any information about the two women other than their ages at the time they vanished.
