As the cold case investigation into a girl who vanished in 1979 heats back up, renewed light is being shed on the disappearance of 12-year-old Kimberly King all those years ago.

It happened on the night of Sept. 15 after Kim told her grandparents she was staying at a friend's home outside Detroit.

Instead, her friend would later recall that Kim ditched the sleepover to hang out in the town of Warren's teen cruising spot.

Authorities excavating woods in southeastern Michigan, about 30 miles from downtown Detroit, for the remains of a 12 - year - old girl last seen in 1979 , also could be looking for the bodies of up to half a dozen others who have been reported missing over the years.

The move wasn't a surprise for those who knew Kim. As her friends and sisters told C&G Newspapers, Kim was headstrong for her age.

While she'd only barely started junior high school, Kim "was like a 16-year-old now. Times were completely different," her friend Annie said.

One of Kim's sisters would be the last to ever hear from her late that summer night when she called from a pay phone and said she'd head back to her friend Annie's house.
