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 bike to go to a friend's house around the corner, but she never arrived. Her bike was found in a field that evening.
In June of 2001, authorities searched the crawl space of a residence that was just a block from where she vanished. An informant claimed that she had been lured there and murdered, but no evidence was ever found. Authorities believe that her 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 Nikki's case, but he maintains his innocence. Interestingly, Bindner sent several bizarre letters to young girls in the Fairfield area shortly before Nikki vanished. Bloodhounds later traced her scent to one of Bindner's vehicles and the grave of Angela Bugay. He visited Angela's grave-site up to ninety times in one year.
Extra Notes: The case first aired on the June 13, 2002 episode.
Results: Unsolved. Tim Binder is thought to be a suspect because of his incriminating postcard of four fingers shortly before Nikki's disappearance. However, in 2009, after the reappearance of Jaycee Dugard, the FPD also received a search warrant to find evidence to link them to Nikki, but it turned up nothing. Curtis Anderson, the alleged killer of Amber Swartz, was also investigated in Nikki's disappearance. However, no evidence was found to link him to her case.
