KSP creates web page to assist with the investigation

By Stevie Lowery

The Kentucky State Police now have a web site where people can submit information or tips about the Kara Tingle Rigdon missing person case.

Kara, 28, was last seen on Saturday, July 17, 2010, on Beechfork Loop Road in Gravel Switch. She was driving a family member's car that was found two days later on the Bluegrass Parkway.

According to KSP Detective Jamie Richard, Kara's web page went live on Monday, Sept. 12. The link is as follows: http://kentuckystatepolice.org/posts/Post15_Most_Wanted/Post15_mp_Kara_D...

When submitting information, the web site asks for the person's name, phone number, email address, etc, but that information is optional, not mandatory, Richard said.

The search for Kara continues, and will continue until it's resolved Richard said.

"There's a lot of stuff coming together with the other agencies that are working on it," he said.

The FBI and Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are also working on the case, Richard said.

There is also a reward being offered for information leading to Kara's whereabouts. Family and friends of Kara's parents, Dale and Sheila Tingle, established the reward fund, which currently stands at $11,000.

You can make a donation to the reward fund, which is at Peoples Bank in Lebanon. Make your check payable to the Kara Tingle Rigdon Reward Fund, P.O. Box 5, Lebanon, Kentucky 40033. You may also drop your donation off at any Peoples Bank location.
