Circumstances of Disappearance

Kemberly Lorin Ramer, known as Kem, was last seen leaving her boyfriend's residence around 11:45 p.m., to return to her father's house, where she lived, about five minutes away.

Her father wasn't worried when he saw Kem wasn't home the next morning, thinking she may have spent the night at her mother's house. He noticed Kem's bed was a bit more rumpled than usual, but there were no conclusive signs of a struggle and no signs of forced entry into the house.

Two days later, on August 17th, her parents reported her missing. Her family insists Kem wouldn't have run away, saying that despite her parents' divorce, she was happy and was looking forward to attending college in Mobile.

Investigators believe she disappeared sometime between midnight and 5:00 a.m., leaving behind her car, keys, clothes, money, and her contact lenses, which she couldn't see without.

Nine months after Ramer's disappearance, investigators searched a rural Walton County lake, acting on tips that her body was there. The search lasted three days and turned up no clues relating to the case. Again in 2001, a nonprofit group from Texas searched Baptism Hole, but turned up no clues. In 2006, investigators searched a sinkhole near Ponce de Leon, Florida, after receiving an anonymous tip, but that search also turned up no evidence.

Ramer was about to start her senior year at Opp High School when she suddenly vanished. She was a straight A student.
