Date of Birth: May 7, 1987

Characteristics: Caucasian female, Blond hair, blue eyes, Nikki had a rash around her mouth at the time.
Details: On December 27, 1991, four-year-old Nikki Campbell went to play with her brother and a friend in the front yard. At 4:30pm, she left on her tricycle to go to a friend's house around the corner, but she never arrived. Later that evening, her tricycle was found in a field a few blocks from her home. No other trace of her has ever been found.
Authorities believe that Nikki's abduction was related to several other unsolved disappearances in the local area, including Michaela Garecht, Amber Swartz, and Ilene Misheloff, and the murder of Angela Bugay.
Suspects: Tim Binder has been named a suspect in this case, but he maintains his innocence. Interestingly, he sent several bizarre letters to young girls in the Fairfield area shortly before she vanished. Bloodhounds later traced her scent to one of his vehicles and Angela Bugay's grave. He visited it up to ninety times in one year. His house was searched in December 1992, but no evidence was found. Prior to Nikki's disappearance, he sent an allegedly incriminating postcard of four fingers, which matched her age.
In June 2001, authorities searched the crawl space of a residence that was just a block from where Nikki vanished. An informant claimed that she had been lured there and murdered, but no evidence was ever found.
Extra Notes: The case first aired on the June 13, 2002 episode.
Results: Unsolved. Binder remains a suspect in this case. However, in 2009, after the reappearance of Jaycee Dugard, the FPD also received a search warrant to find evidence to link them to Nikki. However, nothing was found. Curtis Anderson, the alleged killer of Amber Swartz, was also investigated in Nikki's disappearance. However, no evidence was found to link him to this case either.
If Nikki is still alive, she would be now thirty-three-years-old.
