This mystery has stumped investigators for 32 years. It was the evening of April 3, 1987, when 31-year-old Linda McCord, 32-year-old Sarah Boyd, and Sarah’s two-year-old daughter Kimberly Boyd were traveling together on their way home from a gospel concert in Waltersboro, South Carolina. They were making their way to Dorchester County, South Carolina heading toward Orangeburg County when they vanished.
Their vehicle, a blue Lincoln, was seen by a witness traveling between 30 to 45 miles per hour. There was another vehicle traveling behind them, but no one could identify the car or the person behind the wheel for detectives. Two days later, the blue Lincoln was found abandoned near the intersection of Highway 15 and 176 in Dorchester County by Linda’s husband. Investigators examined the vehicle and saw that a freeze plug had blown out and the engine had overheated.
Sarah’s husband, Phillip Boyd, told police that he returned home at midnight to find that his wife and daughter had not yet made it home. He said that he wasn’t necessarily worried about it and thought that they were either en route or possibly stopped to stay with relatives. However, when he discovered that they hadn’t made it back by 6:00 a.m., he became worried and called authorities.
The women, nor the toddler, have been seen or heard from since.
There was allegedly movement with Sarah’s credit card as it was reportedly used three years after her disappearance at a local mall. Unfortunately, the signature on the receipt couldn’t be deciphered, but authorities did determine that the writing didn’t belong to Sarah. The person behind the mysterious purchase has never been identified. Police believe that the two women and the child are endangered missing persons.
Here are the profiles for Linda, Sarah, and Kimberly. The information provided may seem minimal, but that’s because there haven’t been many details made public:
At the time of her disappearance, Linda McCord was described as having black hair and brown eyes. She also wore eyeglasses.
At the time of her disappearance, Sarah Boyd was described as being 5 foot 4 inches – 5 foot 6 inches tall and approximately 105 pounds. She had black hair and brown eyes. Sarah also wore eyeglasses and reportedly also went by the first name Genette.
At the time of her disappearance, Kimberly Boyd was 3 feet 4 inches tall and weighed 25 pounds. She had black hair and brown eyes. She would be 34-years-old today.
Anyone with any information regarding the disappearances of Linda McCord, Sarah Boyd, or Kimberly Boyd is urged to contact the Dorchester County Sheriff’s Office 843-873-5111. They are our sisters and their lives matter.
