    Kathryn Elizabeth Collins lived in Lolita, Calhoun County, TX, with her 3-year-old son. On April 1, 1981, she left her son at home with a babysitter while she travelled to a doctor's appointment in Port Lavaca, about 16 miles south of Lolita. On the way, her brown Chevrolet Capri had a flat tire so she pulled off the road just after she exited the TX Hwy 35 Causeway in Port Lavaca. Witnesses reported seeing Collins standing near her car as an unidentified man appeared to be assisting with the flat tire. A tan or light colored van was parked nearby. That was the last time Collins was seen. The Capri with the flat tire were later found abandoned in front of the "former Shell Fish Restaurant just off the causeway". Foul play is suspected.

    In August, 1991, confessed killer Donald Leroy Evans was questioned about the disappearances of Kathryn Collins and Wanda Priddy.

    Initially, a man who knew both Collins and Priddy was questioned, but not charged. He died in 1991. In 2001, both women were considered as possible matches to a Jane Doe found in Lyon County, Iowa.

    On March 1, 1983 this UID was involved in a motor vehicle accident in Harris County TX.

    She has the letter "c" tattoo, is 5'7" and has black hair and brown eyes. Nose and chin remind me of Kathryn. Caution post mortem pictures Note this UID is not on NamUs!
