LIVERMORE — Maine State Police searched a private property Monday on Strickland Ferry Road looking for evidence that could help locate Kimberly Moreau of Jay, who has been missing for 32 years.

Nothing was found, according to Stephen McCausland, spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety.

Moreau was last seen at about 11 p.m. on May 10, 1986, at her parents’ house on Jewell Street in Jay. She was 17.

Kim Moreau left that night after telling an older sister and her husband she was going for a ride and would be back in an hour.

Moreau left her purse and car behind, but did not say if she would be with others that night.

She never returned.

Since then, police have conducted numerous searches and followed up on leads involving properties in several areas, including Jay, Canton and Livermore Falls.
“We will be continuing our efforts to find Kim and bring her home,” McCausland said.
There is no date scheduled for police to return to the site.
Richard Moreau, Kim’s father, said information was received through others who work to find missing people.
The information has been verified and seemed valid, he said.
The search was called off Monday because special equipment is needed.
The dirt road off River Road leads down to the Androscoggin River.
The private property owner gave permission for the search to be conducted,  Moreau said.
“We know the information is verified and it seems to be valuable,” he said. “We can’t let this opportunity slip by.”
Richard Moreau has searched for his daughter since she went missing. He has said all along he wants to bring his daughter home and get closure.

The search is ongoing for Kimberly Moreau of Jay, who was 17 years old when she was last seen the evening of May 10, 1986. (Submitted photo)
