LIVERMORE — State police did not find the remains of Kimberly Moreau under a concrete driveway beside Route 4 on Monday.

“We didn’t find Kim,” said Stephen H. McCausland, spokesman for Maine Department of Public Safety.

The 17-year-old girl from Jay was last seen leaving her family’s house May 10, 1986.

A search of the site last week with ground-penetrating radar detected an abnormality at the former Charlie’s Pride Fruit Stand.

“There was an abnormality found in testing last week,” McCausland said. “We are uncertain what it was, but it was probably an animal.”


With the aid of the Maine Department of Transportation, state police used jackhammers to break up the concrete driveway.

According to officials at the site, the concrete was set about the time Moreau went missing.

Moreau’s father, Richard Moreau of Jay, said it had been rumored for years she was buried there.

At about 11 p.m. on May 10, 1986, Moreau told an older sister and her sister’s husband she was going for a ride and would be back in an hour. She left her purse and car behind, but did not say if she would be with others.

The family has kept missing persons signs posted throughout Jay and Livermore for more than three decades, Richard Moreau said Monday.

“We will keep looking,” McCausland said.
