A federal judge has dismissed a Madisonville woman's lawsuit regarding her daughter's 17-year-old unsolved kidnapping case.

U.S. District Judge Thomas B. Russell ruled that Sarah Teague  brought her case to court too late to be prosecuted and that her allegations lack merit.

A Madisonville woman whose daughter was kidnapped more than 17 years ago is suing the Kentucky State Police, Henderson Police Department, FBI and others involved in the unsolved case.

Sarah Teague 's suit alleges malfeasance in the case of her missing daughter Heather Teague  who disappeared in August 1995 from a Henderson County beach. In Teague's hand-written complaint she accuses law enforcement of not doing enough to solve her daughter's kidnapping.
