Details of Disappearance

Kincaid was last seen in the afternoon of October 3, 2002, at the Safeway store on northeast Stephens Street in the Metz Hill area of Oakland, Oregon. She has never been heard from again. Her dog, a neutered male Pomeranian named Pippen, disappeared with her and has never been found. Kincaid left behind her pet bird and cat, however.

It was initially believed that Kincaid left of her own accord because of a recent divorce, but foul play is now suspected in her case. Investigators think finding Pippen may be key to solving Kincaid's disappearance, as whoever took her possibly took the dog as well, and may have sold it or given it away. Pippen would be seven or eight years old as of 2007.

At the time of her disappearance, Kincaid was living in a small cabin on Sparks Road in Oakland. She was close to her family and it is uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning. Her case remains unsolved.
