September 20, 2015, marked the one year anniversary of the disappearance of 37- year-old Edgefield County resident Tamera (Tammy) Sue Kingery. Kngery supposedly left that day in 2014 to go for a walk; she never returned. At the time of her disappearance, a note was found, believed to have been written by Kingery, stating she was taking a walk. She was reported missing hours later by her husband when she failed to return to her Mealing Road home. Possible evidence was collected, several coordinated searches were conducted, but still, no sign of Kingery.
Law enforcement was told at time of her disappearance, that taking a walk was out of character for Kingery, They were also advised that Kingery had suffered from depression, and, as recently as a week before her disappearance, had tried to commit suicide.
Speaking recently with The Advertiser, a spokesperson with the Edgefield County Sheriff’s Office stated that while the disappearance is still an open investigation, there has been “no new information” in this case. The spokesperson went on to further state that the ECSO has “exhausted all our leads.”
With no new leads and time ever passing, this case is becoming colder. However, the ECSO is hopeful that new tips may emerge that will breathe new life into this investigation. To that end, the ECSO is again asking the public for any information they may have on the disappearance of Kingery.
Kingery is described as a white female with blonde hair and hazel eyes. She is approximately 5’3” and weighed about 125 pounds at the time of her disappearance. Additionally, Kingery reportedly has scars on both her wrists and on her chest.
Anyone with possible information on the whereabouts of Kingery is asked to call the ECSO at 637-5337. Callers may remain anonymous.
