    Details of Disappearance

    Donna was a resident of Crocker, Missouri, a suburb of St. Louis, in 1992. She was visiting her uncle in Belleville, Illinois at the time of her disappearance.

    Donna was last seen walking along east Monroe Street near south Illinois Street in Belleville at approximately 1:30 a.m. on February 18, 1992. She had departed her brother's residence and was planning to meet her boyfriend, Jeffrie Mezo, at a nearby fast food restaurant at the time. Donna wanted a short visit with him before her brother drove her back to Missouri. She never arrived at her destination and has not been heard from again. She left behind her personal belongings.

    After Donna's disappearance, several people claimed to have seen her in the Fenton, Missouri area, but these sightings were not confirmed. Jeffrie, who was the father of her unborn child and not a blood relative of Donna's, was questioned by police about her disappearance and took a lie-detector test. He was found shot to death in South Side Park near his Belleville home, four months after Donna's disappearance. A note was found which indicated suicide, but the gun that killed Jeffrie was found in a nearby lake. It is unclear if his death is related to Donna's case.

    Donna left all her personal belongings behind when she vanished. Her case remains unsolved.

    I did a search on her name on Zabasearch and there was a Donna J Mezo, aged 36 listed in Crocker, MO with a Edward Mezo, aged 42 listed as an relative. Interesting.

    If you read the comments, you'll find there are few people who think she's alive. Wouldn't that be great?

    Donna, 16, was last seen near a fast-food restaurant in Belleville. Her boyfriend was questioned by police and took a lie-detector test but was himself found dead a few months later. A suicide note was found with the body, but the gun he’d been shot with was in a nearby lake. Call Belleville police, 618-234-1212, with information.

    Could Donna be the unidentified girl found in Wyoming on April 13 1992? Hard to say by the dental as the pictures of Donna do not show her teeth.
