Missing Person Kansas Kathryn Adam

Kathryn Adam was 35-years-old when she was last seen on April 29, 1993, in Salina, Kansas.  She left the Kwik Shop on 1727 West Crawford Street at 4:30 a.m. to do her delivery job.  A surveillance camera at a Kwik Shop convenience store shows Kathryn wearing a blue Kansas City Royals jacket as she is leaving the store.  Kathryn would pick up and deliver hosiery, in particular the brand L’eggs that was popular at the time.

Kathryn never came home that night and her disappearance was reported by her teen daughter, who she lived with.  She was divorced from her husband.

Kathryn’s van was found on April 30 around 5:45 p.m. outside the Russell’s Restaurant on 649 Westport Blvd.  Inside the van was blood.  There was also blood found at a storage unit in West Salina on Centennial Road where Kathryn would have picked up her stock for the day.  Police believe Kathryn was attacked while she was loading up the van.  There were bullet fragments, but most had been cleaned up.  Police also stated the van was driven about 60 miles and there was mud splattered all over it.

Kathryn has never been found.
