Wear purple for Kara

-A A +A

 Tuesday, July 17, will mark eight years since anyone has seen Kara Tingle.

The Lebanon woman was last seen July 17, 2010, on Beechfork Loop Road in Gravel Switch. Kara was 27 years old at the time, and she had been driving a family member's car that was found two days later on the Bluegrass Parkway.

Kara's family is asking people to wear purple — Kara’s favorite color — on July 17 to mark the anniversary and to show their support. Her mother, Sheila Tingle, also asks for people to pray for some closure for the family.

Kara has two children, a son Austin Tingle, 15, and a daughter, Nora Rigdon, 9.

Kara’s disappearance is still an open case. Anyone with information that could help with this case is encouraged to call the Kentucky State Police Post 15 at 270-384-4796 or toll free at 1-800-222-5555. Tips can be made anonymously.
