Kimura, who was 28 at the time, had taken a train to Fox River Grove to spend the night with a friend who lived on the 200 block of Northwest Highway in Cary.

Police said Friday they are continuing their investigation into Kimura's disappearance because they have received new information in the case.

On Saturday, Cary police and other law enforcement agencies will be conducting a "thorough" search of the areas surrounding her last known location, according to a news release.

Authorities haven't said exactly where they will be searching due to the sensitivity of the case; the search is expected to take several hours.

Police said they are seeking new information and any leads that may help them the case.

"We know there are individuals that have information, and we are asking their assistance," the news release said. "With the passage of time, it is our hope that these people come forward."

Kimura is described by authorities as an Asian female with black hair and brown eyes, 4 feet, 11 inches tall and 100 pounds. She was last seen wearing a St. Edward's school jacket with red trim and the word "April" stitched on the front in red lettering. She had been diagnosed with schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

Anyone with information should call Cary police at (847) 639-2341.
