Details of Disappearance

Kutnak was last seen in Cameron, Texas on August 16, 1992. Witnesses saw her on foot on FM Road 486 that evening. She was acting for directions and appeared to be disoriented.

An extensive search of the local area turned up no indication of her whereabouts. Authorities can find no evidence of foul play in her disappearance, but her case remains unsolved.
