Minneapolis police put out a plea to the public Wednesday for help in a 23-year-old cold case.

Police said that 17-year-old Victoria Jane Owczynsky disappeared on Aug. 26, 1990 and has never been seen since. Foul play is suspected.

She was last seen at her house in 1800 block of University Avenue NE after planning to meet a friend at a park. But she never showed up.

“We are always reviewing cold cases as our goal is to bring closure to every victim and their family,” Sgt. Gerhard Wehr of the Homicide Unit said in a statement. “With the continuing advances in forensic technology, any new information that we receive could help solve cold cases.”

Anyone with any information about this case is asked to call Sgt. Wehr at 612-673-3406.
