Tacoma-Pierce County Crime Stoppers is now offering a reward for information on the whereabouts of a South Hill developmentally-disabled teen who’s been missing since last week.

Investigators have been searching for Kimberly “Kimmie” Daily since Tuesday afternoon. Volunteers, search dogs and aircraft have concentrated on a three-mile radius around her home on 106th Avenue Court East near the South Hill Mall. They’ve knocked on doors and handed out fliers to businesses along the Meridian corridor.

Detectives have checked in with sex offenders registered to live in area and are working with the FBI.

They’ve found no sign of Daily and received no substantive tips as to her whereabouts.  And while they have found evidence of foul play, the department is ramping up the criminal investigation.

The department has been consulting with the FBI since Wednesday afternoon, Pierce County sheriff’s Sgt. Mike Blair said Monday.

“We are assuming there is something different about this,” he said.

Crime Stoppers is now offering up to $1,000 for any information on Daily’s whereabouts. Tipsters may remain anonymous.

Reach Crime Stoppers at 253-591-5959.
