Details of Disappearance
Dinwiddie attended concert of the band U2 in Columbia, South Carolina with friends on September 23, 1992. The concert ended at approximately 11:15 p.m.; Dinwiddie and her group then stopped at Jungle Jim's, a nightclub in the Five Points' area of Columbia.

Dinwiddie was last seen at approximately 1:30 a.m. on September 24 by an employee at the club. Her friends lost track of her at the club and assumed she had a ride home; they left at approximately 1:00 a.m.

Dinwiddie apparently spoke to the bouncer for 15 minutes before walking out the door between 1:15 and 1:30 a.m. She was last seen walking north on Harden Street. She left her purse behind and has never been seen again.

Dinwiddie was missed at 6:15 a.m. when her father saw that the lights and radio were on in her room and her bed had not been slept in. He called all of her friends and none of them knew her whereabouts, so he reported her missing at 8:30 a.m.

The Columbia police treated Dinwiddie's disappearance as a kidnapping, since everyone who knew her said it would be very uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning. She is described as a cautious person who did not like to be out alone.

Rivera, a Navy pilot with an exemplary military record, was convicted of the police officer's murder in 2004 and sentenced to death, plus seven life terms for related crimes. Authorities are uncertain if Rivera is connected to either Dinwiddie or Merchant's cases and no charges have been filed against him in connection with their cases. Interviews with him on the subject have not been fruitful.

Dinwiddie's case remains open and unsolved. She is an graduate of Heathwood Hall Episcopal School and has an art history degree from Randolph-Macon Women's College (now coeducational and called Randolph College). She was planning on enrolling at the University of South Carolina for graduate school at the time of her disappearance. Her case remains unsolved.
