Karen S. Adams was last seen at a popular gambling location
in Hancock County, West Virginia. On the evening of March 11,
2007, Adams drove her red/maroon, four-door, 2005 Suzuki Forenza
sedan with Pennsylvania license plate ETD5587 just across the
Pennsylvania state line to the Mountaineer Casino Racetrack and
Resort to play bingo. She was seen there and was known to have
left the bingo area around 11 p.m. that evening, possibly headed
to the gaming side of the resort to play the slot machines. She
was observed on surveillance video at approximately 3 a.m. on
the morning of March 12, 2007, leaving the gambling complex and
she has not been seen nor heard from since that time. Her car
has also not been located.
Adams worked at a local elementary school as a teacher's aide and at a local department store as a cashier clerk. She was not married, but did own a dog to which she was quite attached. Adams enjoyed playing local bingo. She lived in Independence Township, Pennsylvania, which is close to the West Virginia border.
