Kaye Stewart - Case 13

Feature Crime:  Kaye Stewart - Missing

Kaye Stewart drove into Rimutaka Forest Park at 10.30 on 13 June 2005. At midday Kaye failed to meet her daughter Tania as previously arranged. Kaye's family have not seen her since that day. Officer in Charge Detective Sergeant Mike Sears is piecing together Kaye's movements in an effort to solve this mystery.

Kaye was reportedly last seen by a Department of Conservation officer where she asked for directions to get back to her parked car. According to reports, this was well after the time she was set to meet Tania. On the way to look for her mother, Tania passed a quad bike driver who should have seen Kaye on her walk back to her car. Police want to talk to this person, and are keen to receive any information regarding this sighting.   
The disappearance of 62 year old Kaye triggered an endless round of searching by authorities and family. Foul play was under consideration from day 2 of the search. There has been NO trace of Kaye since her last sighting with the DoC officer at 1pm on the 13 June 2005.

Long after the police search and rescue teams ceased searching the Rimutaka Hills for Kaye, her family continued to search, desperate to lay their wife and mother.

At the time of her disappearance Kaye was wearing:

  • Dark Tracksuit pants with triple stripe
  • Blue parker with red collar and cuffs
  • Gold Watch
  • Emerald Ring

A $50,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest of anyone involved in this crime.
