Help Find
Karen Louise Wilson

It has been a long time since Karen Louise Wilson has been missing.  Hopes and prayers abound that she is found but for that to happen the police need your help. Perhaps you saw something or know something. Perhaps you were afraid to say something before or didn’t think the information you had was important. Well now is the time to speak up. Send in an anonymous email or call to the Albany Police if you feel more comfortable but please do something.

So Karen has been missing since March 27, 1985.  She was only 22 at the time.  At the time of her disappearance this 5’3 SUNY Albany student was wearing faded blue Levi jeans and a light blue short sleeved pullover Izod golf shirt and a three quarter length cream colored women’s raincoat and white sneakers. It is possible she may have been wearing her eyeglasses.

On the night of her disappearance, she had gone to the Colonie Center to buy a shirt and then around 7:20pm she was last seen in the 1600 block of Central Avenue in Colonie, New York. Police believe Karen may have been abducted as she walked south on Fuller Avenue by the Six-mile Waterworks (the entrance ramp to I90W and the Northway) towards SUNY Albany.  Although that area was heavily travelled that night, witnesses have indicated that the man in this picture may have seen something or know something as he was in the area around the same time.  Does he look familiar to you? If so, call the police to give his information. If he does come forward or if you have information on him that you can give police, he may be the missing piece that can link a now deceased suspect in the case with Karen.
