NEW ALBANY, IN (WAVE) - Many questions are left unanswered after a Clark County woman disappeared in New Albany.

35-year-old Stephanie Kirk was at a friend's house on Spring Street in New Albany on March 25. She left and went walking toward the Uptown Bar.

It is speculated she was going to the bar to meet a man in his mid to late 50's named Jeff Gohan. She was supposed to meet him around 1 p.m. that Sunday and go with him to Shelbyville to pick up a motorcycle and go for a ride.

Deputies have not been able to track her down. Kirk's father and teenage daughter have not seen her since. They said she needs medicine for her extremely high blood pressure. They also said Kirk is big on holidays and she missed Easter.

Her father Tony Kirk said, "I want her to come home. She's got a daughter. We both miss her. We both worry about her, can't sleep. Her daughter can't sleep, worries about her and she just needs to come home.  We just need to get her back home where she's safe."

Deputies said they have searched motorcycle shops and have not been able to track leads. They also cannot find Gohan.

"He is not a suspect," said Major Donnie Bowyer, "We've been given info that he may have been the last person to see her, and maybe has some information for us"

Kirk is described as being 5'5'' and weighing 150 pounds with blonde hair and blue eyes.

Anyone who might be able to help is asked to call the Clark County Sheriff's Office tip line at (812) 280-2776.
