A quick trip turned into a mystery for the family of Kimberly Tatum. There are very few details available about Kimberly’s case, a repeated obstacle here at OBG, but I’ve included the information that could be gathered about the disappearance of the 20-year-old St. Louis, Missouri resident.
According to reports, Kimberly Tatum was an employee at a local Sam’s Club. It was just around the holiday season on December 22, 1999, when Kimberly was reportedly all set to make her way to work in order to pick up her paycheck. What happened next is unknown, because Kimberly never arrived at Sam’s Club and her check went unclaimed.
Kimberly was said to have been living with a man when she went missing and reports state that she was known to even use his last name. However, her family wasn’t under the belief that the couple was married. Who that man is or was has not been named publicly, nor is there information about Kimberly’s route to work, if she planned on stopping or meeting anyone else, if she drove a certain vehicle or took public transportation, or if the man she lived with was ever named as a person of interest.
At the time of her disappearance, Kimberly Tatum was 5 feet 8 inches tall and weighed 160 pounds. She had black/dark brown hair and brown eyes. Kimberly has at least one tattoo of a black panther on her left shoulder with the word “Kim” above it. She was also known to use the last name “Lewis.” Kimberly would be 42-years-old at the time of this publication. Her dental records and fingerprints are reportedly not available, however, the Doe Network reports that Kimberly’s DNA is on file.
Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the St. Louis Metro Police Department at (314) 444-0100, (314) 444-5350, or their local authorities. Her agency case number is 99-167433.
Please share this story about Kimberly Tatum to help reignite the investigation into this case. She is our sister and her life matters.

Beatrice Green, 38: Last Seen At Tennessee Home In 1994
When she didn’t show up at her sister’s home, her loved ones grew concerned.
Her life may have been unconventional, but the routine seemed to have worked for Beatrice Green. The 38-year-old has been described as a drifter, often falling out of contact with her family for weeks at a time. However, Beatrice would always eventually contact someone to let them know that she was safe, and each month, she was known to visit her sister’s home. Beatrice’s welfare checks were sent there monthly, so she would make sure to stop by and pick up her mail. (more…)
