Dive crews search for missing Bak nurse

PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL (WFLX) - A Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office Dive team and K-9 units spent more than an hour Wednesday morning searching a Palm Beach Garden Estates pond for signs of a school nurse, who has not been seen since Sunday evening.

Kimberly Lindsey, 49, is an employee of the Health Care District of Palm Beach County. The district said she has served as a school nurse at Bak Middle School of the Arts for the past two years.

Neither a helicopter search nor bloodhounds have turned up a trace of Lindsey. Search crews left the pond and property around noon Wednesday.

A representative from the sheriff's office said the search of the pond was not prompted from a tip but just a standard investigative practice.

On Monday, the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office was asked to do a welfare check at her home in the 8000 block of 154th Court North in Palm Beach Country Estates.

Deputies did not find Lindsey, but her vehicle and personal items were found in the home, said Teri Barbera, spokeswoman for Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office.

At her home Tuesday, a man, who said he was her brother, did not want to talk. He was seen moving a Toyota Camry out of the driveway. "Puts you really on edge. It really does," said Jo Munoz, a neighbor who has resided in Palm Beach Country Estates for 25 years. "Your mind just wanders until you have the answers," she said of the missing person case. "You don't know if it's a personal thing. You don't know if it's an outside thing. Is it targeted?," she asked. "It could be anything."

Lindsey has three daughters. One has created a Facebook page to help find her mother.

A reward of $1,000 is being offered for information in the disappearance of Kimberly.

She is described as 5 feet 10 inches, 140 pounds with blonde hair and green eyes. According to the Facebook page designed to help find her, Lindsey was last seen wearing jeans and a green t-shirt which said explore, dream, discover.
