    NamUs says under the status of her DNA that a sample is available, but, not yet submitted. I am not sure that is the most up to date information though.

    RE: Lets Chat about Tamara Dawn Porrin

    GOD Bless you! I am Tammy's sister and will gladly share all info I can and help in any way!

    I have submitted my DNA and I believe the police went to my parents and brothers to see if they would submit theirs as well.

    She disappeared in Nov. 1986 under suspicious circumstances. To the best of my knowledge she was not reported missing until 1994 when I went to the police.

    Little was done with her case until Officer Lockwood came across it this year. He has been actively and aggressively working it ever since!

    Please let me know how I can help; not just with Tammy's case but others too.
    Thank you for starting this thread.

    Have the police kept you up to date on her case? Do you know if her DNA sample has been entered into CODIS yet? I know it may be difficult to answer our questions but I appreciate you helping us.

    No they won't tell me anything other than they are working on it. I submitted my DNA several weeks ago. Please feel free to ask any questions needed and I will answer to the best of my ability. The police aren't releasing much. There has yet to be a press release or anything in her case. She has been missing since 1986! I am getting frustrated!!

    Did they originally believe she was a runaway and that was why it was not reported in 1986?

    Is there any info we can sleuth other than just her statistics?

    I used to pass through DuBois a lot when my son was in college.

    I was just looking through Pennsylvania's missing on the doe network and came across Tamara.

    Just thought I'd add her doe network and charley project links.

    I hope she is found soon.

    There may be no greater possible match than Tamara “Tammy” Porrin.

    Porrin went missing from central Pennsylvania in 1986, and the photos of her on a national missing-persons database bear a remarkable similarity to Jane Doe. Both have the same short, curly hair, circular tip of the nose, and round, soft jaws and chin.

    Porrin’s brother, Ernest Porrin Jr., agreed the renderings of Jane Doe look very much like his long-lost sister.

    “I can see a huge likeness of what Tammy would have looked like,” Ernest wrote in an email. “But I personally believe she was killed back in 1986.”

    Still, Ernest and his sister told The Daily Beast they are more than willing to submit DNA to eliminate Tammy from the pool of possible matches for Jane Doe.
