RIVERSIDE (CBSLA.com) — Lori Dow can’t keep her hands steady when she holds one of the flyers for her missing daughter, Kimberly.
“It’s hard. Horrible. Everybody I go to… it’s just so hard to hand that flyer out,” said Lori Dow.
Jeff Nguyen, reporting for CBS2 and KCAL9, spoke to Dow’s concerned parents.
He also reported that the search for Dow has intensified. Dow is a white female, 5 feet 6 inches tall and 150 pounds. She has brown hair and brown eyes.
Dow’s boyfriend, 35-year-old Tom Fulk, told police he last saw her on September 9.
Wednesday evening, Nguyen went to the condo where the couple lived. He said Fulk’s father answered the door.
Nguyen asked, ‘Did you live with him while he was here?’
“Yes, yes,” Fulk answered. “Until I made him leave.”
“You made him leave, Nyguen asked? “What about his girlfriend?
Fulk replies, “I don’t know, man.”
A warrant has been issued for Tom Fulk’s arrest. He is accused of violating probation on two unrelated cases.
Police also say he’s now a person of interest in Dow’s disappearance.
Sgt. David Amador of the Riverside Police Department says, “He’s resisted and avoided all of our attempts to contact him.”
Dow’s parents say he’s avoided them as well. Dow’s father fears the worst — because no one heard from her on September 25 —her 30th birthday.
Said Mike Dow, “She’s never missed coming home for her birthday or at least calling us. And she didn’t call or anything.”
Dow suffers from Lupus and her family worries she is somewhere without her medication.
And while they wait — their home and cars are filled with the flyers — flyers begging for help.
Says her mom, “I just get up in the middle of the night and I get in my car and I just drive around and sit in the parking lot. Thinking ‘Oh, she might walk up.’ But it hasn’t happened.”
