Kathleen Helen Randall
Missing since October 24, 1983 from Delray Beach, Palm Beach County, Florida.
Classification: Endangered Missing
Circumstances of Disappearance
Kathleen's mother last heard from her daughter on October 24, 1983. Kathleen had drug and alcohol problems at the time and was hitchhiking around the United States. She called her mother, who lived in Delray Beach, Florida, and said she was traveling with a truck driver from Delco Trucking. Kathleen promised her mother she would be in Florida soon to visit her. Her mother never heard from her again.
Kathleen's mother received a letter from a man in Forrest Park, Georgia in early 1995 -- nearly 13 years after her daughter's disappearance. The man stated that he met Kathleen in late October 1983. According to the source, Kathleen was traveling with a driver from Anco Trucking at that time. She told the man that she had traveled with the driver from Flushing, New York and they were en route to Florida. Kathleen and the truck driver had an argument concerning her alcohol intake and she parted ways with him in Georgia.
The source became friends with Kathleen and helped her by allowing her to room with him in Georgia. He stated that he returned to his home three weeks after meeting Kathleen in early November 1983 and discovered that she had left the premises. His neighbor told him that Kathleen wanted to head for Florida, presumably to visit her mother as promised. The neighbor dropped Kathleen off at Interstate 285. She planned on hitchhiking to Florida on Interstate 75. The neighbor said that Kathleen brought several pairs of jeans and t-shirts with her.
The source was attempting to return a scrapbook that Kathleen left behind in Georgia, which is why he contacted her mother.
Investigators have ascertained that Kathleen's Social Security number has not been used since October 1983. She lived in Texas and New York City in the early 1980's.
