Details of Disappearance
Bethany disappeared from Chickasha, Oklahoma on January 1, 1997, the day before her fourth birthday. She was abducted by her non-custodial mother, Teresa L. Kennedy. A felony warrant for child stealing was issued for her on May 8, 1997.
Kennedy and Bethany were seen in Oak Harbor, Washington after the child's abduction; Kennedy has relatives there. They may be traveling in a blue 1984 Chevrolet Cavalier with the Oklahoma license plate numbered SNG029.
Bethany's parents had gotten divorced in 1996 after ten years of marriage, and initially they shared custody of Bethany and her older sister, Catherine. Teresa abducted only Bethany, leaving Catherine with the girls' father. Their father was granted full custody of both girls after the abduction and tracked Bethany and Kennedy to Washington, but they disappeared again before he could recover his daughter. Bethany now has half-siblings whose existence she doesn't know about, who would like to meet her someday.
A photo and an age-progressed image of Kennedy are posted with this case summary. Her date of birth is September 19, 1968, making her 28 years old at the time of Bethany's abduction. She's described as Native American, 5'2 and 165 pounds, with brown hair and brown eyes. She may use the alias Teresa Louise Tiner. She may wear contact lenses or eyeglasses.
Bethany and her mother may be traveling with Teresa's lesbian partner, Rachel Geneva Lewis. Photographs of Lewis are unavailable. She was 23 years old at the time of Bethany's abduction. She is 5'2 tall and 210 pounds, with brown hair, brown eyes and a tattoo on her right leg.
Bethany and Kennedy may be in California, Colorado or Canada. Bethany's whereabouts are unknown and her case remains unsolved.
