Missing deaf people

Donna Jean Snowdon has been missing since 1987 from Rivercrest Community, Lufkin, Angelina County, Texas. She was born in 1966 and that would makes her about 41 years old now. Does anybody know her? If you do, please tell us about her and anything on the day she went missing as well.

Nope, don't know here, but if there a missing poster of her that would help her her be found. Someone go missing are hard to be found most of the time.

Either she doesn't want to be found or she is dead. She got two small children and no mother in her right mind would leave them.

Robert Ross Baird

Robert Ross Baird walked out of his home in Pocopson Township, Chester County, PA in 1998. He was born in 1951 and he would have been 56 years old now. I have a bad feeling about him because he is diabetic and insulin-dependent.

Thank you. I found them at Welcome to the Doe Network and the volutneers there do search that site for a match between Does and Missing Persons. Some of them do find a match and solve the cases. I was so impressed with that and I thought why not post those Deaf persons and see what happens. I am hoping that there are some members that do know at least one of them personally and maybe tell us about him/her. That might be some clues there that can lead to solving the case(s). I won't know how it turn out unless I post them here.

I was looking at Donna Snowden's missing person report. Does anybody know where the Rivercrest Community is ? It is in Lufkin, TX which is north of Houston. Is Rivercrest Community a condo community or something? I am puzzled at so little information on Donna. It doesn't give the date of her disappearance like many other missing reports.
I am hoping that somebody in AD would know her although she disappeared back in 1987. I hope that person can fill me in on more details. Thanks.

Good idea, Twelphe. If it's within my power, I'll try to get 'er done.

Update: Apparently it's so easy, even I could do the job.

Heh, no. I am trying to get some information on any of those 4 deaf people. The DoeNetwork.org has a long listing of those missing and also another long listing of those found dead but not identified. People who look at both lists might find a good match and they will report to the police department. If the match is found, the DoeNetwork will note it and tell us. I thought I would try my luck in finding a match with any of the four I posted in here.

It would be good if all four are found and brought home for burial. That would be a good closure.

Great! I look forward to his answer. He can always ask other deaf people in their 40's (same age as Donna if she lives) if they remember her.

Donna Jean Snowden

Hello. My name is Lauran and I am the founder of Porchlight for the Missing and Unidentified. Sadly Donna Jean Snowden has been identifed. She was actually found deceased in Texas in 1993. Tragically she was not identified until just recently, by a DNA match in the Codis database. Our group Porchlight works on these old cases by submitting possible matches with unidentified souls to law enforcement. You can read about sweet Donna's case here
Porchlight International for the Missing & Unidentified -> TXF930121 / Donna Jean Snowden

If we can ever assist anyone here, please do not hesitate to contact me at monkalup@aol.com.

Peace

Thank you for letting us know. I passed the information along to the DoeNetwork.org. It is sad to know the demise of such a pretty girl.

I have bookmarked your Porchlight International. One more website for me to browse and learn. When I came across the DoeNetwork.org, I thought it is a wonderful way to volunteer.

Donna Jean Snowden's body was found east of Houston. Does anybody in Tx that knew her, know why she would be going to Houston? Deaf club? a new boyfriend? a close friend?

Ironic that her page lists her as "deaf and mute" but she is shown pictured holding a telephone. I wonder if that would confuse some people who saw her pictures.

My name is Mary Allen. I am not deaf but my mother was Donna Jean Snowden .
I didn't know her she left me when I was 5 years old I am now 23. She really went missing in 1990 the cops found her dead in 1993, She was murdered. They still don't know who did it and will proabaly never find out.She
chose drugs over me and my sister that's why she left us, we didn't find out until 2008 that they found her, so all this time I just assumed she didn't want us and was still out there somewhere. After I found out she was dead I am still mad at her because she had left us in the first place, she also had between 1990 and 1993 to get off drugs and be a mom and come back but she didn't. I really don't want to put her as a bad person, people tell me before she got on drugs she was a really good person and a good mom. But I'll never know and never get to ask her WHY. I am now a proud mom of two great boys and would never leave them. I am sorry I went on and on I haven't talked about it since I found out and it was just all coming out. I am still confused on how to feel but I forgive her for what she did. I just wish I had a chance to tell her.

I am so sorry for your loss. According to the Porchlight website that is linked to earlier in this thread, she had been deceased for a few years by the time she was found in 1993. So most likely she was killed shortly after she disappeared. She didn't have a chance to come back to you and be a mom...she was gone too soon.

I'm so sorry.

Missing: Porschette Charslyn Evans

The Charley Project: Porschette Charslyn Evans

She was last seen at Gallaudet in 2004. She apparently has a medical condition in addition to being deaf, her physical description talks about scars from a breathing machine.

DC must have deaf homeless...maybe someone knows her...

anyone knows Emendo 'Charles' Bowers from Memphis, California?

I'm thinking about declare him as missing person. I've called every local funeral home, hospitals, morgue centers, and local prisons - no one knows him by the name.

I just hope he's either okay or died peacefully. had a heart problem for too long time now.
