Vital Statistics


Circumstances of Disappearance
Zimmerman was last seen in Gifford, Illinois on May 26, 1997.
She went to a party in Rantoul Memorial Day Weekend. It was at a mobile home park of Route 136 just outside of town. That's the last time she was seen.
Heather left all of her personal belongings at home. Her purse had been stolen shortly before her disappearance. She was not carrying any credit cards, cash or identification as a result. Heather was employed as a clerk at Casey's store in 1997. She never retrieved her paycheck from the business.
Heather's husband was enlisted with the US Marines in Japan. He had come home on leave for a short time. But, since they were separated at the time, Heather resided with her parents in Gifford, Illinois.
Extensive searches of the area produced no clues as to Heather's whereabouts. It is uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning. She did not have access to a vehicle at the time of her disappearance.
