    Active search in Kimberly Moreau cold case underway

    Maine State Police confirmed Thursday morning that there is an active search going on in the cold case of Kimberly Moreau.

    "We are just sitting here today hoping and praying that they discover something find a piece of bone that says it's her and that's all," Dick Moreau, Kimberly's father said.

    Dozens of police descended on the rural property around a mobile home on Route 108 belonging to Brian Enman, a man who police said was one of the last people seen with the then 17-year-old.

    Police renew search for Kimberly Moreau, missing since 1986

    After 30 years of waiting for his daughter to come home, a Jay father could soon have closure.

    State police are searching a property in Canton hoping to close the decades-old cold case of 17-year-old Kimberly Moreau, who vanished in 1986. She was last seen on Jewell Street in Jay.

    Investigators are now using dogs and new technology on a property nearly 12 miles away. This five-acre property right off of Route 108 now belongs to the man she was last seen with.


    Police renew search in Kimberly Moreau’s 1986 disappearance

    Richard Moreau stood by the road Thursday as police searched property owned by someone who was reportedly one of the last to see his 17-year-old daughter, Kimberly, before she disappeared nearly three decades ago.

    Maine State Police haven’t named Enman as a suspect in the 29-year-old case or said what led them to the scene on Thursday, but they said their search of the property is connected to the cold-case disappearance of Kimberly Moreau. Richard Moreau said Enman is “the No. 1 suspect” in his daughter’s disappearance “and always has been,” and that he has been putting up missing person posters in the area for years.

    Day four of new search in the Kimberly Moreau cold case

    State police and Oxford County officials continued their search in the 29-year-old cold case of Kimberly Moreau for the fourth day in a row.

    Investigators were joined by the Maine State Police Evidence Response Team at the scene of Brian Enman's property early Sunday morning. Enman was one of the last people to see Moreau alive. Geologists are expected to bring in ground-penetrating radar as the day continues.

    What is the deal with Enman? Has he stayed out of trouble this past 29 years I wonder?

    Police suspend search for evidence in Kim Moreau case in Canton

    Maine law enforcement officials have temporarily suspended their search for the remains of a Jay teenager who went missing almost 30 years ago.


    Search Suspended for Clues in 1986 Disappearance of Girl

    The father of a teenage girl who went missing nearly 30 years ago in Maine says he remains confident that police are going to solve the mystery.

    State police said they will meet this week to determine the next step after four days of searches around Canton property owned by Brian Enman, one of the last people to see 17-year-old Kimberly Moreau alive. Sgt. Mark Holmquist said cadaver dogs gave several indications of remains and investigators plan to return "in the near future.''


    Search suspended after fourth day produces no results in Kimberly Moreau case

    Holmquist said the search will likely resume at some later date, but it would not involve Enman’s land off Route 108. Holmquist said state police want to take a closer look at adjacent properties owned by two Canton landowners, who have given them permission to conduct a ground search.

    State cold case unit ensures people are not 'forgotten'

    There are more than 120 unsolved cases of missing and murdered people in Maine, according to the state’s cold case unit.

    “They’re not forgotten,” victims’ advocate Renee Ordway said.

    For them it is about keeping their hope alive, like the father of Kimberly Moreau who has been missing for more than thirty years.

    Her father Richard Moreau still searches for her and puts up signs all these years later.

    “He searches on his own and he's incredibly committed to bringing his daughter home,” Ordway said.

    Police search Livermore property in 1986 missing person case

    Maine State Police searched private property on Strickland Ferry Road on Monday looking for evidence that may lead to finding Kimberly Moreau of Jay.

    Nothing was found, but Maine Department of Public Safety spokesman Stephen McCausland said, “We will be continuing our efforts to find Kim and bring her home.”

    Richard “Dick” Moreau, Kimberly’s father, said information was received through people who work with him to find missing persons.

    The information has been verified and seems to be valid, he said.

    The search was called off Monday because special equipment is needed.

    The dirt road, located off River Road, leads down to the Androscoggin River.

    The property owner gave permission for the search to be conducted, Richard Moreau said.

    “We know the information is verified and it seems to be valuable. We can’t let this opportunity slip by,” he said.

    Richard Moreau has kept up the search for his daughter and has said that he just wants to bring his daughter home and get closure.

    Podcast features local missing person story

    Franklin County residents are well accustomed to seeing her picture- the grayscale face, pretty and young and haloed by a typical 80's hairdo- staring from telephone poles and community bulletin boards. Every so often the weather-worn picture is replaced by a new one, duct-taped to its post.

    Kimberly Moreau has been missing since 1986 and her father, Richard, has never stopped replacing the poster with his young daughter's face on it.

    "He is never going to give up. It's all he thinks about," Bernadette Pelletier-Couture said.

    Pelletier-Couture is the author of a tri-weekly true crime podcast called Murderific. The Lisbon resident researches and writes all of her shows before sharing the draft with a guest to add their own research

    Pelletier-Couture's Kimberly Moreau story just reached more than 20,000 downloads. The locally-famous story has caught the interest of listeners, intrigued by the details of the poster they've always seen.

    Kimberly Moreau is one of the oldest cold cases in the state. The investigation is still active after 32 years, although Kimberly was officially declared dead in 1993 according to Pelletier-Couture's podcast. She was last seen on Main Street in Jay on the night of May 10, 1986.

    "The [Maine State] police say it's still a very active investigation. Which is all because of her father's determination," Pelletier-Couture said.

    The case still gets numerous tips even after all these years.

    33 years since her disappearance, father of Kimberly Moreau clings to new tip

    The family of a woman from Jay who has been missing for 33 years is working on a new tip to find her.

    Kimberly Moreau would have turned 50 years old this year. She went missing after getting into a car with acquaintances on May 9, 1986.

    State Police have searched many areas in Jay, Canton, and Livermore Falls, but searches have yielded no results.

    Her father, Richard Moreau, has dedicated his life to finding her.

    "After 33 years, you'd think by now someone would have come up and said something," said Moreau. "How they can live with it? It's beyond me. I don't know."

    He believes a new tip is bringing him the closest he has ever been to bringing Kim home.

    "It came from a person who is dying," said Moreau. "I think it could end the very next time we go down [to search]."

    Neither Moreau nor State Police would speak about the tip in detail, but State Police said they receive four to five tips on this case in an average six-month span.

    "In comparison to other unsolved homicides or missing persons cases, that's quite a lot," said Lt. Mark Holmquist with the Maine State Police Major Crimes Unit. "I think any parent would be optimistic when they get a piece of information and we understand that he is anxious for this to be resolved and find his daughter. We just have to take the information and weigh it against what we already know and see if it makes sense."

    Moreau is desperate for the tip that truly leads them to Kim, so he can bury his daughter. Police declared Kim dead in 1993, and call the circumstances of her death "suspicious."

    "How they can live it, it's beyond me," said Moreau. "If it was me, it would be driving me absolutely insane."

    Moreau said the people who know where Kim is refuse to speak up. He said he does not care about a criminal case. He just wants to bring her home.

    "What will it bring me? Will it ever take away one tear? Will it ever take away one minute sleep I lost? Will it ever take any of the hurt away from us? No. It won't," Moreau said of prosecution. "If you stress on vengeance, the only thing you're going to get is more misery. I've had enough misery in my life. I don't need any more."

    Moreau is pleading anyone with any information to contact him or Maine State Police, Major Crimes Unit-South, One Game Farm Rd, Gray, ME. 04039 1-800-228-0857 (In State); (207)624-7076 (Out of State); (207)657-5748 (Fax)

    State police in Maine say they’ve used radar equipment to search for a missing person who was last seen 33 years ago.

    The ground-penetrating radar equipment was used Tuesday on Route 4 as part of a search for evidence to help find Kimberly Moreau. Moreau was 17 years old when she was last seen on the night of May 10, 1986, in Jay.

    A spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety says the radar equipment can spot abnormalities in the ground. The Sun Journal reports data collected in the effort will be analyzed and police will determine whether to go back.

    Moreau’s father, Richard Moreau, said the site that was searched is rumored to be where his daughter was buried. He says he remains committed to finding his daughter.

    Moreau was 17 when she was last seen at about 11 p.m. on May 10, 1986, leaving her family’s residence on Jewell Street in Jay.

    She told an older sister and her sister’s husband she was going for a ride and would be back in an hour. She left her purse and car behind, but did not say if she would be with others.

    Stephen H. McCausland, spokesperson for the Maine Department of Public Safety, confirmed police were at the site Tuesday, using specialized equipment that has been used before in the search for Moreau and others.

    The equipment can spot abnormalities in the ground, he said. The data collected will be analyzed and, depending on the results, police will determine whether to go back.

    State police searched a property last year on Strickland Ferry Road in Livermore.

    The search is the result of many tips received over the years, which police have investigated. They will continue to do what they can to locate Moreau, McCausland said.

    Moreau’s father, Richard Moreau of Jay, said the site searched Tuesday has been rumored for years as the place where his daughter was buried.

    “We’ve got about five different tips going,” he said. “All I can tell you is the search is still ongoing because we have more work to do. We didn’t completely clear the site. One of these times we are going to be at the right place at the right time and we are going to find her. That’s all we can do.”

    Hundreds of searches have been done, he said, and he will not give up.

    Police said they have conducted several searches and followed up on leads involving properties in many areas, including Jay, Canton and Livermore Falls.

    Search under Livermore driveway fails to find remains of Kim Moreau

    State police did not find the remains of Kimberly Moreau under a concrete driveway beside Route 4 on Monday.

    “We didn’t find Kim,” said Stephen H. McCausland, spokesman for Maine Department of Public Safety.

    “There was an abnormality found in testing last week,” McCausland said. “We are uncertain what it was, but it was probably an animal.”

    With the aid of the Maine Department of Transportation, state police used jackhammers to break up the concrete driveway.

    According to officials at the site, the concrete was set about the time Moreau went missing.

    Moreau’s father, Richard Moreau of Jay, said it had been rumored for years she was buried there.

    At about 11 p.m. on May 10, 1986, Moreau told an older sister and her sister’s husband she was going for a ride and would be back in an hour. She left her purse and car behind, but did not say if she would be with others.

    The family has kept missing persons signs posted throughout Jay and Livermore for more than three decades, Richard Moreau said Monday.

    “We will keep looking,” McCausland said.
