Cary police are taking a fresh look at the case of a Chicago woman who went missing in the area more than a decade ago.

Wendy M. Kimura was reported missing May 20, 1999, after she took a train from Chicago to Fox River Grove to visit a friend in the 200 block of Route 14.

The Cary Police Department will be canvassing the area and wants to talk to anyone who knew Kimura at the time.

Kimura, who was 28 when she disappeared, is 4 feet 11 inches tall, weighs 100 pounds, and suffers from schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

She is of Asian descent and has black hair and brown eyes.

When she went missing, Kimura was wearing a St. Edward’s school jacket with red trim and the word “April” stitched on the front in red.

Anyone with information is urged to contact Cary Investigations Sergeant Jim Fillmore at 847-639-2341.
