DEVELOPING: Girl Walked With Friends, Then Vanished

(CNN) -- Of all the experiences they shared in their 12 years together, Janice Norwood still recalls a special moment when her daughter Kimberly confided in her while they were going into town one day.

"She was having a little problem with some math and she said, 'I just can't get fractions,''' Norwood recalled. Kimberly, a good student, would enter junior high school during the next school year.

Kimberly never made it to her junior high school. She disappeared on May 20, 1989, a Saturday. She had spent the night at a friend's house in her hometown of Hallsville, Texas.

She came home around lunchtime, had a bite to eat and cleaned her aquarium, Norwood says. Afterward, she went out again to play with friends.

Close to 5 p.m., Kimberly called her mother from a friend's house, asking if the girl could sleep over at the Norwood home.

Norwood said no, because she ''really didn't care for that little girl.'' Kimberly pleaded, ''But we won't bother nobody,'' Norwood says.

Mother and daughter hung up the phone, both in a bit of a huff. That was the last time they spoke.
