Debora Moody has been missing for over five years. She was last seen at her mobile home on Smiley Street off of Highway 196 in Ludowici on the evening of December 4, 2007.

Debora was an employee at C & S Construction and was working on the morning she went missing. Later that day at approximately 3:45PM she went to visit a friend at Fort Stewart in Hinesville, GA and after that she went to pick-up another friend in Liberty County and the two went back to Debora’s home.

According to the friend, Debora was acting normal and nothing seemed amiss. She stayed at her home for roughly 2 hours before heading home. Shortly after, Debora seemingly vanished.

Less than a week later, on December 10, 2007, after failing to get in touch with her, a relative contacted Long County Sheriff’s Office and filed a missing persons report.

When police searched her home they found her purse in her house, her car sitting in the driveway and her dog on a leash in the front yard. There was no indication of foul play. Surprisingly, she didn’t take her purse and her dog in the front yard indicated she was planning to come back soon.

Family members including Debora’s parents and (grown) son lived in Florida not too far from the Georgia Border. They spent alot of time in Georgia assisting in the investigation and searching. They claim she was in the process of a divorce and described her as an independent woman who enjoyed the country life. They say it is very uncharacteristic of her to leave without warning and believe something happened to her.

Due to the lack of evidence her case is being listed as a missing person rather than a crime.

Some reports spell her first name as “Deborah” however, Georgia Bureau of Investigation spells her name as “Debora”. According to the GBOI website, she could be going by her middle name, Gail.

Her case is listed on America’s Most Wanted with the latest airing on February 23, 2008. Her episode is posted on AMW but is currently unavailable.

She will be turning 48 in several weeks.

Age progressed photo of what Jason might look like at age 27. He will be turning 32 this year.

Jason Jolkowski was less than two weeks away from his 20th birthday when he vanished on June 13, 2001 while en route to Benson High School in Omaha, NE, to meet a coworker who had made arrangements to pick him up and bring him to work. Jason’s vehicle was having car trouble and was currently in the shop so he told the manager that he would walk, but they ended up calling him back to tell him that they could pick him up and bring him. Jason has a difficult time giving directions, and meeting at his former high school which was only eight blocks away seem logical to him. He took a quick shower, got dressed, and was last seen by his little brother, Michael Jolkowski, bringing in the trash cans. A neighbor also saw Jason taking the cans into the garage as well. He then made his way to Benson High School.

He never made it and hasn’t been seen or heard from since.

Witnesses claimed to have seen him walking on foot in the area of 48th and Bedford Street in Benson. Sometime between his house and the eight blocks to Benson High School something happened, and it happened quickly without anyone taking notice.

Jason was a young adult male and unlike a child, he would have somehow made a scene if someone was attacking him. This gives the impression that he was lured under false pretenses, possibly with someone he trusted. He was described as a very trusting individual who seen the good in people. Maybe someone offered him a ride and he accepted? No one knows for sure what exactly occurred that day.

Omaha police investigated and determined that Jason hasn’t used his mobile phone, nor has he accessed his bank account or cashed his recent checks since he went missing.

Family and loved ones have tried desperately seeking answers as to what happened to their beloved child, who wasn’t a trouble maker but instead, a quiet, reserved young man who had alot going for himself. He was smart, shy and a bit trusting which could render him vulnerable. He had no known enemies and was spending his young adult years working and attending community college. It is highly uncharacteristic of him to simply walk off and his family senses something happened to him. It’s been over twelve years and loved ones refuse to stop looking for closure.

Jason’s case received a large amount of attention and has been featured on America’s Most Wanted.

Between November 5, 2006 and November 24, 2006, Pennsylvania philanthropist Joe Mammana offered rewards of $100,000 for information leading to a recovery or a conviction in Jason’s case as well as 19 other cases.

A family website Missing Jason, was set-up to bring awareness to Jason’s case. But this wasn’t enough for the Jolkowski’s and they were determined to stop another family from having to endure what they’ve endured, and on October 6, 2003, two years after Jason went missing, his parents Jim and Kelly Jolkowski, founded Project Jason, a nonprofit organization that assists families of missing persons, and works to prevent more abductions from taking place. The website has been highly successful and has educated and helped thousands victims and families.

Mr. & Mrs. Jolkowski presented LB111, Jason’s Law, to the State Judiciary Committee; it was passed on National Missing Children’s Day, May 25, 2005. Jason’s Law established a missing person’s clearinghouse in the state of Nebraska.

Mr & Mrs. Jolkowski has a statement which has been used on many of Jason’s missing posters;

“Someone, somewhere knows where our son is and could help us find him. It’s been too long to live without knowing. We want answers. We want him back home with us, or at least to know what happened”

The Jolkowski’s have been a huge asset to families of missing people. They have saved many others from going through the same pain they’ve gone threw. But still, they continue to have that missing piece. IF everyone could come together and find the answers that they’ve been searching for, they could finally rest, move forward and have the peace and closure they’ve been desperately searching for.

Murder Victim Dubbed “Princess Jane Doe” Found In Blairstown Cemetary in the Summer of 1982

princess-doe-unidentified

The identity of a young female discovered in Warren County, New Jersey on July 15, 1982 remains unknown over three decades later.

The unidentified female was given the name “Princess Jane Doe” after she was discovered in a wooded area in Blairstown Cemetary, Route 94, NJ. She had been beaten to death and medical examiners conclude her estimated time of death could have been up to several weeks prior to discovery. They also determined she wasn’t pregnant nor did she ever give birth. She had no drugs in her system at the time of her homicide.

The community was horrified that something like this could happen so close to home and saddened when nobody came forward to claim the body so they came together and raised the funds to give Princess Doe a proper burial and gravestone.

So many years have gone by and many believe Princess Doe wasn’t from the area due to the fact that nobody knows who she is. It’s possible she may even be from another Country which would explain why, despite thousands of people threw out the United States seeing her case, her identity remains a mystery. However, a witness did come forward saying she knew Princess Doe and that she lived in Long Island, NY and was estranged from her family.

Lt. Stephen Speirs of the Warren Co. Prosecutor’s Office has investigated Princess Doe’s case close for many years and had hoped to solve the mystery by July, 2007, which would have been the 25th anniversary of the discovery. But it’s now passing the 30th anniversary with just as many unanswered questions as there was 30 years ago.

Physical description: A young Caucasian female between 14-20 years of age with a thin frame. Eye color is unknown. When she was found she was wearing red nail polish on her right hand but no polish on her left, almost as if she started painting her nails but didn’t get to finish. Her left ear has two piercings, her right ear has an unknown amount of piercings.

Case Details:

Date Body Found: 07/15/82
Estimated Date of Death: 07/11/82
Estimated Age: 14 – 20 years (victim would be in her 40’s if she was still living today)

Hair: shoulder length brown hair

Weight: 90 – 100 pounds
Height: between 5’2” / 5’4”

Teeth: Lower anterior teeth are crowded (two of her front teeth were slightly darker than the rest of her teeth and her teeth also indicate she came from a middle-class background)

Clothing: A red V-neck pullover shirt with yellow piping on the front portion of the shoulder and blue and black piping around the neck, sleeves and waist. Victim was also wearing a red/white/blue print wrap-around skirt with a wide border print of peacocks on the lower portion.

Jewelry: A gold-colored chain with small white beads spaced evenly within the chain. Attached to the chain was a 14K gold cross with an ornate design.

The Kidnapping & Murder of Adam John Walsh

adam_walsh

Photo of Adam Walsh which was taken the same year of his abduction and murder

Adam Walsh was a 6-year-old boy from Hollywood, FL. On the afternoon of July 27, 1981 Adam joined his mother, Reve Walsh, on a trip to Hollywood Mall, which is right across the street from Hollywood Police Department.  The main reason for the trip was so Reve could stop by Sears Department Store to purchase a few items, including lamps.

Adam was your typical, friendly boy so when he saw a couple of children playing video games in the arcade section of the store he asked his mother if he could stay behind and watch. Figuring she would be less than 75 ft away in the lamp section, she said yes and left her son who was happy and amused with the video games, behind.

That was the last time she would see her son alive.

“I said, ‘I’m going right over here to the lamp department,’ and he said, ‘Okay, Mommy, I know where that is,'” Reve told Nightline in a 2011 interview.

Police records in Adam’s case released in 1996 show that a 17-year-old ‘security guard’ asked four boys to leave the department store. Adam is believed to have been one of them. It is unknown why they were asked to leave.

Reve noticed fairly quickly (about 5-10 minutes) that the lamp she wanted wasn’t in stock and headed back to the arcade. Adam was nowhere in sight. She wasn’t initially concerned, figuring Adam ran off with some kids she went out to search for him, asking local shoppers if they’ve seen him. After searching for over an hour, Reve began to panick and called police.

By the end of that week this case was National news, thousands of fliers with the smiling, brown-haired boy were published and posted all over cities and towns and eventually made their way out-of-state. But by then, it was too late.

 Two weeks (16 days) after Adam went missing his severed head was found in a drainage canal more than 120 miles away from home. The rest of his body has never been located.

From the beginning, the Walshes were disappointed with the Hollywood Police Department.

First, the Walshes say the cops didn’t take the missing persons case seriously enough. Then they say the police botched the murder investigation.

“It was one nighmare after another,” John Walsh said.

The prime suspect was Ottis Toole, an admitted serial killer who was in prison for many other crimes.

“You keep killing and killing and it gets easier and easier and it don’t really bother you,” Toole once told Texas law enforcement.

Toole made 24 documented confessions to killing Adam Walsh, including a 1984 videotaped interview with Texas Rangers. During the interview, he said, “I kind of feel bad about that Adam Walsh kid.”

“That is,” he said, “the youngest child I ever killed.”

Toole even had the gulls to write to the Walsh family, demanding $5,000 in exchange for telling them where the rest of their child’s remains were.

“I read that letter and went into the bathroom and threw up,” John Walsh would later tell Nightline in an interview. “I said, ‘This son of a bitch. We have to figure out a way for him to tell us what happened.”

In the decades that followed, Adam’s case remained open. Toole continued to recant his confessions about being the killer several times and for years he was never charged. Many people believed he was admitting guilt simply for the fame and to be remembered. They believed this because he never proved his guilt and wouldn’t tell police where the rest of Adam’s body was.

For years the case went unsolved and the Walsh family felt like they were the ones doing all the investigating. It became frustrating but they were not going to let their child’s name go down in vain.

At the time there were no missing faces on milk cartons, no Amber Alert system in place to alert the public if a child goes missing, no National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, nothing. To a family who’s missing a child each minute feels like eternity and the Walsh’s were determined to change this.

They didn’t want other families to go through the tragedy they went threw and for the families who have gone threw unsolved tragedies. They were determined to catch as many predators and criminals as they possibly could.

Prior to his son’s murder, John Walsh was a partner in a hotel management company in Hollywood, Florida. After his son’s kidnapping and murder, he became a strong human and victims rights advocate, criminal investigator and the creator and host of America’s Most Wanted which has helped save thousands of missing people and solve crimes. Walsh is also a part owner of Museum of Crime & Punishment in Washington D.C.

John Walsh (pictured) has been a strong human and victims right advocate for many years and continues to speak out and help other families of crimes

Reve Walsh rarely speaks out about her child’s murder. In 2011, she sat down with Nightline ABC to discuss a new book “Bringing Adam Home,” which tells the story of her son’s case and the tragedy they went threw.

“When all this was going on, I just thought to myself, I can’t wait till it’s 20 years or 25 years,” Reve said. “I don’t care about getting old, I just want this experience of my life to be that far away from me because I thought it would be different. It’s really not.” Reve told Nightline.

The Walsh family had dedicated their lives to helping other families find their missing relatives, children, etc. Over the years they’ve helped find thousands of missing people and criminals. They were not going to let their son’s horrific murder go in vain. But still, the frustrations grew each year Adam’s case continued to go unsolved.

“I cannot go to my grave not doing everything I can possibly do,” she said. “We are going to get a cold case detective, we are going to start from the beginning, and have this man work this case. I don’t care if you go to work just to pay the bill of this private investigator.’ And John said, ‘I know the guy.'”

That guy was Joe Mathews, a retired police detective who had briefly been involved in the Walsh case early on and was critical of how it was handled.

After combing through the case file, Mathews made a major discovery: a roll of film from the crime scene of Ottis Toole’s car — it was film that the original detectives never bothered to have developed. Pictures show bloody footprints on the driver’s side of Toole’s car. On the rear floorboard of the car — where Toole admitted to tossing Adam’s severed head — pictures show the bloody outline of a face.

“I have a blood transfer from Adam’s face onto the carpet — you can actually see his image. It’s as clear as the shroud of Turin, Veronica’s veil. It’s clear,” Mathews said.

He showed the picture to the Walshes.

“To me, it was the one thing that a mother knows, is that this is their child, that this picture is their child,” Reve Walsh said. “This is the piece of evidence that ties everything together for me and I can go to my grave knowing that not only that I did everything I could but that I found my answers in that photo.”

In December 2008, based on the evidence presented by Mathews — who is also one of the co-authors of “Bringing Adam Home,” — the new Hollywood Police Department Chief Chad Wagner officially closed the case, definitively naming Ottis Toole, who had since died in prison, as the man who killed Adam. Wagner apologized to the Walshes for mistakes that he said were made early in the investigation.

It’s been over 32 years since the kidnapping and murder of Adam John Walsh and his family never gave up on him and didn’t let his case go down in vain. America’s Most Wanted is still helping law enforcement solve thousands of crimes and they plan to continue for as long as they possibly can.

Boy Vanishes In 2001 After Leaving His Benton Harbor Home To Walked His Dogs

Steven_Kraft

STEVEN EARL KRAFT, JR.
February 15, 2001
Benton Township, Michigan

Steven Kraft, Jr., also known as “Steve or Stevie” by friends and family, was an 11-year-old who attended Hull Elementary School in Benton Township, MI. He vanished days after he completed a 5-day suspension for defended himself in a fight with another student. He was described as a good student and this suspension was his first due to a “bully”.

On the evening of February 15, 2001 Steve left his Benton Township home to walk his two dogs. When he didn’t return home for dinner his parents decided to wait a little bit longer before going out to search for him. It didn’t take too long before one of the two dogs came home by himself. He appeared excited and jumpy and led the parents to a nearby pond but when dive-teams searched the pond they didn’t find anything of significance. The other dog was found shortly after at a Blue Creek which is a local creek not to far from the pond.

This case is very similar to the disappearance of Erica Baker, a 9-year-old girl who vanished shortly after leaving her aunt’s Kettering, OH home to walk her dog. The dog eventually came home and seemed distressed. The cases are less than two years apart, both received a good amount of National attention and both remain unsolved.

Many reports came in about possible places to search including a pond behind Harbor Haven Ministries in May 2001 and another search in an area of woods near the Southwestern Michigan Regional Airport in November 2002. but no evidence was located and Steven Kraft’s whereabouts remain unknown.

According to reports, Steve lived on a dead-end street in Benton Harbor (Township) with little traffic, and was familiar with the area. He has relatives living near his home and was well-known to the neighbors. His parents have since moved to Hagar Township, Michigan. He has family in Milwaukee, Wisconsin and Lexington, Kentucky.

Date of Birth: January 11, 1989 Hair: Sandy Brown
Place of Birth: Milwaukee, Wisconsin Eyes: Green
Height: 5’2″ (at the time of his disappearance)
Weight: 100 pounds (at the time of his disappearance) Sex: Male
Race: Caucasian Nicknames: Steve and Stevie

Steven was last seen wearing a blue-green Charlotte Hornets basketball team jacket, a tan and white t-shirt, tan pants, and black boots.

Baby Kidnapped Over A Decade Ago Still Missing

This segment of unsolved mysteries was aired on August 28, 2001, several months after the kidnapping. Jacqueline’s case was also aired on America’s Most Wanted (web exclusive.)

[image]

Photo of Jacqueline Castaneda taken shortly before she was kidnapped

Birth name: Jacqueline Castaneda-Vasquez
Location of incident: 
Avondale, Phoenix, Arizona
Date of birth: 
January 14, 2001
Date of abduction: 
May 6, 2001
Other: 
She is described as a Caucasian/Hispanic female with brown hair and brown eyes and a heart-shaped birthmark on her upper arm. On the day the baby was kidnapped, she was wearing a white outfit and was strapped into a green and white car seat. She would be 12-years-old (and turning thirteen in a couple of months.)

Short description of abduction: Jacqueline Vasquez was just a baby when she was last seen at a swap meet located on 12300 West Buckeye Road located in Avondale, AZ.  At the time of her disappearance, Jacqueline was wearing a white outfit and was strapped into a white and green car-seat carrier. She has a heart-shaped birthmark on her upper right arm.
According to police, the baby’s father dropped off Vasquez and her family at the event Sunday morning. An older family member ran a booth at the meet. Despite leads from the local community, Jacqueline has not been seen since she disappeared. Police have no suspect’s, but they would like to speak to the woman in this sketch

Full story: In May of 2001, Olivia Castaneda arrived at a swap meet outside Phoenix, Arizona, with two of her three  children, Niely Castaneda who was just a toddler, and Jacqueline Castaneda who was 4-months-old going on 5-months, and the children’s grandmother (a.k.a Olivia’s mother)

“My husband dropped me off there with my two babies, my two year-old Niely, and Jacqueline, my four month-old baby. I took Jacqueline out of the car with her car seat, and Niely, I took her walking.”

Before meeting her mother inside, Olivia needed to use the rest room. She finally found a portable bathroom. Finding it too cramped and dirty, she made a decision that would lead to tragedy:

“Jacqueline couldn’t fit inside, so I just took my two year-old, Niely, inside the rest room ’cause she could have walked away if I left her outside. I was in the rest room, like, for a minute, when I came out, Jacqueline wasn’t there anymore.”

Hoping that her mother had taken the baby, Olivia rushed into the swap meet:

“I felt more upset and more nervous when I saw my mom was by herself. She didn’t have the baby. And that’s when I felt I was going to die. I mean, I just–I didn’t know what to do.”

After 20 minutes of searching booth to booth, the police were called. According to Sgt. Mark Lucas of the Avondale Police Department, they immediately sealed off the swap meet:

“There was an officer stationed at all the exits and along the fence line. And as cars were leaving, we would check the vehicles as they left. As people were leaving the side exits through the gates, we would go ahead and check them, make sure they weren’t carrying an infant or had a car-carrier.”

Witnesses reported a suspicious woman lurking around the rest-room shortly before the kidnapping and a vehicle speeding away moments after the incident. The vehicle is described as a  red, full-size, (possibly Ford) Pick up truck. According to the website “25missingpersons,” authorities have not yet connected the vehicle to the abduction.

To see a small composite sketch photo of the unknown suspect please click: Charley Project.

Witnesses description of the woman matched and a sketch of the woman was made, but she has yet to be identified.

But despite police standing by exits, the baby was never rescued and her family remains heartbroken.

Many people have had their own theories and assumptions, one being, that the kidnapper was a female who couldn’t have children of her own and desperately wanted a child and jumped at the first opportunity to steal another mother’s baby to raise as her own. Police list her possible locations as “National” however, she could be ANYWHERE and authorities are hoping that somebody is alert and recognizes the child who will be turning thirteen on January 14, 2013. The most identifying characteristic is the heart-shaped birthmark on her arm.

National Center for Missing & Exploited Children came out with an age-progressed photo of what Jacqueline might of looked like at age 6, today, she would be 12-years-old.
