Circumstances of Disappearance

On August 26, 1995 Heather Teague was sunbathing on Newburgh Beach in Spottsville, Ky. The Newburgh beach area - rural Henderson County is on the Ohio River across from Newburgh, Indiana. An eye witness from across the river watched through a telescope as a man wearing a wig and a mosquito net dragged Teague into the woods.

Heather's stalker may have been caught on tape just minutes before. A local farmer was videotaping crop vandalism in the area that day, and recorded Heather's car and, just down the road, a red Ford Bronco.

As a result of locating that type of vehicle through registration checks, police developed a primary suspect in the case, who drove a red Bronco and had a criminal history. When police went to question him, the suspect reportedly killed himself.

Friday marks 27 years since Heather Teague was last seen.

On this day in 1995, a witness says he saw Heather on Newburgh Beach in Henderson County.

Since then, Heather’s mom, Sarah Teague, says she has not let a day go by without doing something to find her daughter.

Sarah says she has found peace and happiness in God and her family, but she still hurts from her daughter’s disappearance.

Kentucky State Police say that Heather’s case is still open and they are still investigating.

Officials say if you have any information that could lead to finding Heather, you are asked to call KSP.

Mom of missing Tri-State woman starts petition for DNA testing​

A Tri-State mother whose daughter disappeared more than 27 years ago is pushing for DNA testing of items found at the scene.

Heather Teague was kidnapped while sunbathing on Newburgh Beach in Henderson County in 1995. Her mother, Sarah Teague, says her bathing suit bottoms and towel were found at the scene but were never tested for DNA.

A suspect in the case, Marvin Dill, killed himself as investigators went to his home to question him. Teague has created an online petition hoping the Governor will order the testing to be done.

Kentucky State Police say they are in the process of moving forward with the testing.

HENDERSON, Ky. (WFIE) - There’s a development in the case of a missing Tri-State woman.

A different agency is now getting involved in the investigation into Heather Teague’s disappearance.

She went missing from Newburgh Beach in Henderson County nearly 29 years ago.

Her mother, Sarah, has never stopped fighting for answers.

Officials say now, the Special Prosecutions Division of the Kentucky Attorney General’s Office will go over Kentucky State Police’s investigation and will handle any possible prosecution in the case.

Sarah tells us she now feels like all the messages she’s sent in have been read, and Heather’s case now has some help.

“This was a surprise, and it was such a wonderful surprise that it happened like this. I’ve never given up. I know that there’s a day set aside where we’re going to get Heather back. That’s all I want,” said Sarah.
