Times Square searched for NJ woman in strange disappearance case
FRANKLIN BOROUGH — Friends of a Sussex County woman who's been missing for a week handed out flyers and searched Times Square on Thursday night.
Kim was last seen at a Starbucks on Route 23 in this borough last Thursday around 10 a.m. waiting for a ride from her parents.
Her cell phone was later found in a vacant building three miles away at the Sussex Bank corporate offices on Munsonhurst Road, and her laptop was found in front of a nearby laundromat, police said.
Police also have surveillance footage showing her in a laundromat and walking near a pharmacy holding her head.
Friends believe the 26-year-old may be headed for New York City, one of her favorite places.
Polly Crabb, a friend of Tammy Kim's since they were in kindergarten who now lives in Florida, is organizing the search.
"She worked with people in theater. The address (on the Find Tam Tam Facebook page) belongs to a close friend of hers. He lives across from a copy shop and decided that's a good place to start."
Crabb said that they had spoken a week before her disappearance. She hoped to save enough money to move to Asbury Park.
Her mother, Christine Kim, told the New Jersey Herald that her daughter had been taking medication for some "health issues."
"The medicine covered the symptoms, but wasn't a cure," she said. "The last couple of days (before she went missing) she was not feeling well."
Tammy Kim is described by police as an Asian female, approximately 5 feet, 5 inches tall, 160 pounds, with brown eyes and black hair. She was last seen wearing a brown T-shirt with a floral pattern, gray capri-style pants, brown sandals, and a Felix the Cat purse.
Franklin asked anyone with information about Tammy Kim to contact them at 973-827-7700.
