    This thread is in the Missing Information and Support Forum. That is what Debbie came looking for. She did not start a thread in the discussion forum asking everyone to speculate on her mother or the case.

    Hi Debbie, if someone in my family was missing, I would never give up hope and I can imagine how much it still hurts when you think about what happend that day in 1986.

    I hope that very soon you get a lead on your Mom.

    Debbie, I'm sorry about your Mom! I noticed on the one poster of her, that it says on the bottom it was updated June 2005. You said the pics don't really look like her? the poster said she had blonde hair. Maybe they will change the pics if you sent them some.

    Question Na Na Missing/please Help

    Hi my name is tasha.I am debbie lynn (hall) smeaton's daughter.I am also helping her on the search for my na na.I truly hope that there may be someone out there that will be able to help or maybe lead us in the right direction.My mom was really sick due to having 37 surgeries and finding her mother has always been a priority for her even when she had brain surgery.It has been a huge priority for all of us.My uncle(my na na's brother) does not have the much longer to live and his dying wish was to see my na na just one more time.It is breaking my heart knowing the pain that my mom is going through not knowing where her mother is.So please anyone that could possibly help or lead us maybe into some new directions,it would be ''greatly'' appreciated.Thank you and in case you have no clue as to who I am talking about,my mom's title on here is ''Endangered/Missing person,my mom''.So Please if anyone out there thinks that they could help even the tiniest bit,please do so.It would be greatly appreciated.
    Sincerally,tasha

    Hi Debbie,

    Angels Missing is not my site. You would have to ask the owner of that site questions about it. My forum is a borrowed space, so we have to be courteous about using it. Posting family photos would be going beyond the mission statement as we only publish photos of the missing person, or known abductors if the info is released by law enforcement. Most missing persons sites are going to operate in the same manner. Perhaps what you might want to do in this case is to create your own website. There are many free ones available on the Internet these days.

    18 Wheel Angels is for ambiguous missing persons cases. Come Home is utilized only if there is a strong reason to believe the missing person may be homeless. Because of the large number of missing persons, we cannot run one person on both programs.

    This conversation should be continued via email. Feel free to email me at kelly.jolkowski@projectjason.org

    I'm so sorry that you both have had to go through so much. It has to be so hard not knowing where your Mom/Na Na is or if she is okay. Do you know if the police have any of her DNA (maybe from you Debbie?) Have they given you any information as to what they have done to locate your Mom? (Either back in 1986 or currently?) Is there anything else you might remember about your Mom that might help ID her that isn't on the Missing poster? (Maybe old injuries, broken bones, jewelry, tattoos?)


    Sending good thoughts your way and praying for your Mom!

    Hi Debbie,

    Best of luck in the search for your mother! You said that the case was handed over to the new police department - was that just the missing persons case or the rape case also? I'm not certain but I think when she went to the hospital they would have called the police about the rape and she might have been interviewed in hospital, are there any records of the police report that was taken about that? Was there a rape investigation started? The original report should still be at the station it was filed at?

    Best wishes from Australia and praying you find her.

    Hello Irishlass,
    Yes it is very hard on not just my mother and myself but also the rest of the family.Not knowing is the part that really hurts.I am going to say that I am pretty sure that they do not have any of my na na's dna..Well The wayne county sheriff that is working on this case is doing everything that he can possibly think of to try and find some clue as to where she may be or if there has been any activity on her social security number.But so far as it stands right now..there has been no activity on her social security number..They are saying that a different name comes up when they run it..So that is really puzzling..I hope and pray every day that she is safe and sound..and also for her safe return home to all of her family that love and miss her so much.She is/was the sweetest woman you ever could meet..I was my na na's pride and joy and I know that she would have never left me or any of us for that matter.All we can do is try everything possible that is out there and let the sheriff do his job and hope and pray for the best..thank you
    Sincerally,Tasha

    thank you, im pretty sure both even though rouge police never did a rape case that im aware of the new officer's are looking into all that and to why alot was not done on her case,the original case we tried to get and they told us that the jacket the case was in was still in the file but the report was not in there and the officer at rouge even said that is really strange. im sure she was interviewed at the hospital and there getting them records also so i will keep everybody informed as i find anything out. again thanks to all you wonderful people,sincerely debbie lynn.

    Just an idea... was she picked up by ambulance and taken to the hospital or did she arrive there by some other means? If it was by ambulance, check with the places that provide emergency care... fire departments (they tend to give first responder care), ambulances services, and maybe even go to the hospital and speak with someone... in any case, if it was by ambulance, there should be a run report completed by the ambulance service, sometimes that report can shed valuable incite into a situation... location person was picked up, time... etc...

    I'm sorry to hear about your mother missing...and for so many years. It must be difficult for you. *HUG* I looked at her picture and the sketch of how she might look now. Good luck and God bless!


    I'm not crazy, my reality is just different than yours.
