Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Details of Disappearance
On July 29, Kortne vanished from her 810 W. Main Street apartment in Palmyra sometime between 3:45 a.m. and 7:30 a.m. She was last seen officially when a Palmyra police officer responded to her apartment for a disturbance at 3:12 a.m. The officer returned for another call, involving a neighbor, at 4:12 a.m., but nobody answered the door that time.
Earlier in the evening Stouffer hosted a get-together at her apartment. Police were called there and said they discovered underage drinking. Stouffer's boyfriend was taken into custody for a probation violation. Later, Stouffer went partying with friends in downtown Harrisburg, going to the now-closed Hardware Bar.
A man who spent that night at Stouffer's apartment told her father that he did not see or hear anything. When he awoke about 7:30 a.m. that day and did not see Kortne, he left, he told police.
When Kortne did not show up for work the next day, her mother went to her apartment. She found the door unlocked, her wallet and cellphone inside and her car parked outside. But Kortne was not there.
Her family and closest friends describe Stouffer as a fun-loving, free-spirited young adult with a passion for life who spends most of her free time outdoors, traveling or with her family. She spoke daily with her mother. Based on her close relationship with her family, both her family and police believe it is unlikely Stouffer would simply have just walked away from her life.
In early 2012, Kortne moved into her apartment at 810 West Main Street in Palmyra with her boyfriend. Kortne was a graduate of Northern Lebanon High School and worked three jobs, as a hairstylist, a dog groomer and in the office at her father's company, Stouffer Equipment Co., Grantville.
Foul play is suspected.
