Circumstances

Katya Marie Lyne was living with her father in Federal Way, Washington in 1997. She had a disagreement with him on March 21, 1997 over school. She was attending Auburn High School and he wanted her to transfer to Federal Way High School, and she didn’t want to.

Katya left their residence at approximately 9:00 P.M. Her father realized she was missing the next morning. And reported her disappearance to the police the day after that.

Katya’s father committed suicide four days after his daughter’s disappearance. He did this on March 25. Katya has never been seen again. Authorities theorize that she may have returned home sometime after March 21 and discovered her father deceased. Then she fled due to the tragic scene.

Katya has never been heard from again. She lived with her father at the time of her disappearance. Her mother lived elsewhere in town. She and her father were apparently very close. And there is no indication that she was abused by either of her parents. There is also no evidence that she was involved with gangs.

Katya was born in El Salvador. She worked as a professional model prior to her 1997 disappearance. Katya had changed schools often and had many problems with her parents. There have been unconfirmed sightings of her in the Puyallup, Seattle and Midway areas of Washington since her disappearance. Her case remains unsolved.

Appeal

Katya Marie Lyne has been missing for 22 years. IT’s well documented that she left of her own accord at the time. But it has been over two decades and Katya remains missing. Her case has never been upgraded to endangered missing. Does the police theory that Katya returned home, found her father deceased, and fled the scene add up? Her father ended his life days after she vanished. IT’s unknown what motivated him to do that. Where is Katya today? Do you have any information concerning the whereabouts of Katya Marie Lyne? Do you have any information concerning the person (s) who may be involved in her disappearance?

If you have any information, please contact the Federal Way Police Department (Washington State) 1-253-661-4600 or 1-253-835-6700. You may contact the Washington State Patrol Missing Persons Unit: 1-800-543-5678. You may contact
