Cold-case investigators with the Puyallup Police Department are asking the public to send in photos and videos taken at the Puyallup Fair on Sept. 17, 1992, the day 14-year-old Misty Copsey disappeared.
Copsey, who is presumed dead, was last seen by a bus driver around 9:20 p.m. that night after spending the day at the fair with a friend. In 1993, searchers found a pair of pants, underwear and a sock thought to belong to the Spanaway teen in an area where two girls’ bodies had been found earlier.
On the night Copsey vanished, Huey Lewis & The News was the headlining musical act at the Puyallup Fair, Puyallup Police Capt. Scott Engle wrote in a news release.
Detectives with the department’s criminal investigations division are looking for photos and videos of fairgoers who were not known to the person capturing the images, Engle said.
It is hoped that the 21-year-old photos could provide detectives with new information about Copsey’s “activities and contacts” in the hours before she disappeared.
Photos and videos can be emailed to Detective Don Bourbon at email@example.com or mailed to Detective Bourbon’s attention at the Puyallup Police Department, 311 W. Pioneer Ave., Puyallup, WA 98371.
