The Columbia Police are working on the oldest missing person case they have at the department in hopes of finding new leads. The case of missing Dail Dinwiddie that went missing in 1992 from Columbia, South Carolina. Dail, who was 23-years-old went to a U2 concert at Williams-Brice Stadium with a group of friends using several different cars. After the concert Dail was last seen leaving a bar called Jungle Jim’s located at 724 Harden Street, around 2 a.m. on Sept. 24. She had told a doorman that she got stranded as all of her friends had left. She started walking in the direction of Harden and Greene Streets. She was never seen again.
When the police talked with her friends they found there was a mix up as they all thought the other was taking Dail home, and that is why she was left behind.
Dinwiddie was 5 feet tall and weighed 98 pounds. She had brown hair and brown eyes and was last seen wearing a forest green pullover shirt, blue jeans, and tennis shoes, according to a Columbia police statement. A $20,000 reward is still being offered in the case.
Anyone with information about Dail’s disappearance should contact Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott at (803) 576-3021. One may also contact Columbia Police Department investigator Mark Vinson at (803) 315-3750.
