Investigators seek information on 33rd anniversary of Burlington woman's disappearance

RACINE COUNTY, Wis. (CBS 58) -- Racine County investigators are looking for information regarding a cold case involving a Burlington woman who went missing 33 years ago.

Dec. 6 marks 33 years since Kerry Aileen O'Brien Krueger went missing. Her husband, Tracey Krueger, along with Kerry's parents, reported her missing on Dec. 7, 1989. 

According to the Racine County Sheriff's Office, Tracey Krueger told police that Kerry received a call from work on the evening of Dec. 5, asking her to attend a trade show the next morning for a coworker who was unable to attend. Krueger said Kerry agreed to go to the show, which was out of state.

He told law enforcement Kerry left their home around 4 a.m. Dec. 6 for a flight out of Chicago O'Hare International Airport. 

Kerry's supervisor later reported that no trade shows were scheduled, and no employees were scheduled to attend any shows at that time.

Officials say Kerry, who was 31 years old at the time of her disappearance, has not been seen or heard from since.

She left behind a 3-year-old daughter, who Kerry's family says she would not have left behind on her own accord.

Law enforcement is looking to speak with anyone who knew Kerry when she lived in Burlington, Wisconsin in the '80s. 

Anyone with information regarding her disappearance is asked to contact Investigator Tommy Sharrett at 262-886-8493, or to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers of Racine County at 262-636-9330 or 1-888-636-9330.
