Circumstances of Disappearance
Eggleston was last seen in Portland, OR, on August 2, 1993. In the morning of August 2, she left for her first solo day selling long-distance services for Allnet Communication Services Inc. in Lake Oswego.
Her morning was spent attending a meeting at Allnet, making sales calls at businesses on Northeast Whitaker Way, near the airport, and stopping at a bank, a gas station and the Burger King near Lloyd Center.

In the afternoon she made calls in the then-Port of Portland building at 700 N.E. Multnomah Street, where five people described her as looking “worried and preoccupied.”
At 14.15, a man to whom she had just made a sale saw her get off the building’s elevator in the company of a dark-complexioned, dark-haired man wearing a blue blazer.

Shortly before 17.00, a man who worked at a nearby building, noticed a silver-gray Volkswagen Golf, like Katie’s, parked in the port building’s parking lot. Katie’s supervisor said she was scheduled to meet with him at 17.00 in Lake Oswego. She never showed up.

Katie’s car (a silver Volkswagen golf was found by a security guard about 24.30, Tuesday in the parking lot of an industrial complex at 12807 N.E. Airport Way. The site is nine miles — via Interstate 84 and Northeast 122nd Avenue — from the port building in which she was last seen. The car was unlocked, its windows were rolled down, and Katie’s keys were in the ignition. Her purse and its contents were in the front seat; her workout clothes were in the back seat. Katie’s Allnet binder was missing. There was no sign of a struggle.

Katie had no history of mental illness, no history of running away. She was a sorority member and had sought office at Oregon State University. She had a brand new degree and a new job. She had two parents, three sisters and four nieces and nephews to whom she was very attached.
