I know a bit about here.

Names she has had:

Kim Rene Elizabeth Verity, Kim Rene Elizabeth Billieu. (Shes had 1 other last name, don't know what it is.)

She was Born on Jan 9th, 1967 I believe (At least that's what I have)

Born in California.

Looking for any info about her other than names and possibly birth year (if mine is correct). So looking for Schooling info, current or past locations, if shes Alive or Dead. Etc.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Kevin,

I think that your question may, unfortunately, be brushing up against WikiTree's rules on the private information of living individuals: https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Help:Privacy_Policy#Information_on_Living_Family_Members

It's rough, but unfortunately that pretty much rules out using the forum to try to find missing persons who could be alive. All that I can recommend, as far as WikiTree goes, is to add a note to your biography saying that you're looking for your mother, and to let her know that if she wants to get in touch you, you're keen to hear from her. 

Perhaps WikiTree needs to carve out an exception in its policy to address missing persons (say, with a filed police report) as being different, but it seems that the privacy policy as it stands excludes this.

Nonetheless, I wish you luck in finding your mom.

Kevin, Even though our hands got tied tighter than before with the new privacy rules, making it more difficult to use WikiTree to find living people, there is still something here that may be able to help you.  Try contacting the WikiTree Adoption Angels - if you add the tag:  adoption_angels to your question, it will bring it to their attention.
Would that work even if I'm not adopted. My mother left in the early 2000's. But if its against privacy rules I understand. Its just she did not talk about her family almost at all. I'm just trying to find out more info on my mothers side of the family. I have already learned its leaning towards Canada and Ireland. I just need more info.
Sorry, Kevin, but I don't have the answer ... I think it's worth getting in touch with the adoption angels and ask them, since it is a case of a child trying to find a parent.  Good luck with your search!
