The trail to Mikelle Biggs kidnapper goes coldMay 16th, 2009 - 6:45 pm ICT by GD
Mikelle Biggs, who hails from Mesa, was only 11 years old when she went missing on 2nd January, 1999. At the time of her disappearance she was at the junction of Toltec St and El Moro Ave, that falls in the central part of Mesa.
As per the 1999 reports of her disappearance, Mikelle had gone outdoors to buy herself an ice-cream. She had left the house with her elder sister Kimber, who on forgetting her jacket, again went inside the house asking her sister to wait outside for her. And in the 90 seconds that followed, the time that Mikelle was alone, she vanished.
All these years, detectives Domenick Kaufmen and Jerry Gissel had been working on the case assiduously, keeping alive the hope of finding her, but unfortunately on 15th May everything thing came to standstill. It is believed that the trail for the person who kidnapped Mikelle a decade ago has just gone cold. And its being said that the case will remain so until further developments takes place in the forensic technology or till some person voluntarily comes froward with some information that may lead to the person who kidnapped Mikelle.
Reflecting on the present situation, Gissel said “Hopefully, the individual who did this will realize the nightmare that they’re putting this family through,”. He further added “I know this person has got to be aching to get this information out. I know, like I’m sure he knows, that he needs to clear up this before he leaves this life because it’s not going to be very good for him afterwards.”
