On November 29, 1986, 16-years-old Kristina Porco (16-years-old) was reported as runaway by her mother following a domestic dispute at their Woodlake Villas, Hilton Head Island apartment. Her mother advised that, after an argument, she left the apartment and did not return.
A female friend reported getting a telephone call from Porco after the argument asking her to meet her at the pool area of the apartment complex. When the friend arrived, she was unable to locate Porco, but did find her red sweater draped over a lawn chair in the pool area.
There were numerous witnesses to strained relationships in the Porco home. Investigators learned that, shortly after Porco stormed out of the family’s apartment, her father drove around looking for her for a few hours. His actual whereabouts during that time frame were never established.
Porco left on foot with no money or extra clothing. After her disappearance, her savings account containing a few hundred dollars, was never accessed.
She remains missing.
Kristina Porco’s DNA profile is stored in the National Missing Persons DNA database.
