    FL - Diane (31) & Tammy (14 - deceased) Hollins, Daytona Beach, 11 June 1979


    Tammy Hollins

    Endangered Missing from Daytona Beach, Florida since June 11, 1979

    Age: 14 -- Height: 5'2" -- Weight: 105 lbs -- Hair Color: Black -- Eye Color: Brown


    Tammy and her mother, Diane Hollins, were last seen in Daytona Beach, Florida on June 11, 1979. A neighbor saw them walking down the street away from their home at 6:00 am. Diane never showed up for work that day, and Tammy never arrived at school. They have never been heard from again. Few details are available in their case.

    Drivers aid cold case with photos of missing pair on cars

    On a June morning in 1979, Diane Hollins and her daughter Tammy walked toward the railroad tracks near their rented Daytona Beach home and simply vanished.

    No one ever found the bodies of the 31-year-old mother and the 14-year-old daughter, Daytona Beach Deputy Police Chief Steve Beres said, and there were absolutely no clues or evidence left behind that could steer investigators in any kind of direction.
    Tammy has a no discussion page on WS:

    They have been missing 32 years. I had never heard of their story until now. Tammy has the sweetest smile! Come home soon.

    I may be no detective, but I can see that Diane was running from something. An abusive man? Harassment at work? An addiction?

    I'm going to search the archives probably tomorrow, if I don't forget. I hope that if she was running from an abusive man he didn't catch up with her and that's why she's missing.

    Not sure if Diane has also been found? I can't find any MSM.

    But rest in peace, Tammy.

    This is just speculation: I noticed that NamUs UP # 4702 was taken down within the last few days. Doe Network case file 977UFGA is the same UID and is still available. It's been suggested that she might be Tammy Hollins, for example,

    But I have no real information that connects the two other than that coincidence.

    Thanks tarabull. So NamUs UP # 4702 / DN 977UFGA was Tammy Hollins, in fact, and law enforcement has had a hunch about that for over two decades now. It's sad to think it may be again as long before her mother Diane is found.

    Stark takeaway reminders from that news article. Anthropometric and forensic estimates need to be done by someone with forensic anthropology training, not just a regular pathologist-medical examiner or the medically untrained coroner some jurisdictions have; and the estimates need to be continually revised and updated as the science improves.

    The area in Georgia where Tammy's remains were found were thoroughly searched without a sign of Diane in sight. That case remains open.

    The family must obtain a burial transit permit to transport Tammy’s remains across state lines lawfully, said David Wilson, funeral director at Thompson Funeral Home in Daytona Beach. Wilson had been working with the family last year in an effort to help them obtain Tammy’s bones. Clark and Robinson are also working with Daytona Beach police’s victim advocate office.

    “We were told that it would cost us anywhere between $600 and $1,000 to bring the remains back to Florida and we can’t afford that,” Clark, who lives in Ormond Beach, said Friday. “All we want is to be able to bring Tammy back home.”

    Clark and her siblings say they’re glad Tammy was found, but are still heartbroken that her mother — their younger sister Diane Hollins — is still missing.
