13 days and counting: Family frantic as ‘homemaker’ mom who never leaves home disappears without a trace

A Texas woman who apparently didn’t like to leave home has been missing for close to two weeks and her family is desperate to find her.

NBC reports that 57-year-old Kimberly Flint is a church-going homemaker who loves gardening and spending time at her residence in Laneville, around 160 miles from Houston. In fact, she loves her home so much, according to her son, Corbett Flint, that she rarely leaves. She has often asked her husband, James Flint, to pick up dinner on his way back home from work she wouldn’t have to leave the house.

A little after 3 p.m. on September 26, Kimberly called James, and typical of her, asked him to bring dinner home. Corbett told NBC’s “Dateline” that his father asked him to pick his mother up and then meet him for dinner instead. Kimberly decided against it and said she’d rather eat at home.

“She said no, but that was nothing out of the ordinary,” Corbett said.

At around 4:30 p.m. on the same day, authorities contacted James and informed him they found Kimberly’s 2016 green Jeep Grand Cherokee crashed off of Highway 84, into a guardrail. Kimberly wasn’t inside the vehicle and hasn’t been heard from since.

“She didn’t like to drive; she said she didn’t feel comfortable,” Corbett explained. “My mom didn’t really like to go anywhere.”

The family thoroughly checked out the home and found nothing that stood out. Search dogs and horses searched the surrounding areas without any luck, and Kimberly hadn’t checked in to any hospitals.

“She knew that my dad was coming home within 45 minutes with her food, and she knew I was coming in after working for two months,” Corbett said. “Why would she just jump up, leaving everything?”

According to KLTV, Rusk County Sheriff Jeff Price indicated on October 4 that no foul play at this time is suspected, and that Kimberly may have lost control of her vehicle and gotten out of it when it crashed. However, with little leads to go on, Price said that other options, including foul play, are being kept in mind.

“You always keep that in mind when you’re looking at this, but at the moment we’re dealing with a missing person and we’re trying to see if we can locate where she may have gone.”

Kimberly is a white female who stands 5-feet tall and weighs around 150 pounds. She has grey hair and typically wears glasses.
