TX - Jayne Elizabeth Winship Davis, 24, Houston, 30 April 1993
I couldn't find Jayne on Charley Project or NamUs. The lead investigator is determined to get this case solved.
Texas DPS Missing Person Bulletin
Jayne Elizabeth Winship Davis
Missing since April 30, 1993 from Houston, Harris County, Texas.
Classification: Endangered Missing
Date Of Birth: July 26, 1968
Age at Time of Disappearance: 24 years old
Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 5'6": 130 lbs.
Distinguishing Characteristics: White female. Hazel eyes; brown hair.
Marks, Scars: She has a scar on the bridge of her nose, between her eyes and birthmarks on her hip and on the calf of her leg, unknown left or right.
Circumstances of Disappearance
Davis was last seen in Houston, TX on April 30, 1993.
She intended to travel from Houston to Brenham to visit in-laws, but she would return to her Houston home a few days later. It is unknown if she ever left the Houston area.
Davis left behind a 2-year-old son when she disappeared. Foul play is possible.
SHERIFF HANAK DETERMINED TO SOLVE COLD CASE
In the years following her disappearance, Jayneís son was raised by his grandmother, Amy Davis. Jayneís parents felt that they did not have the financial ability to fight for his custody in court. He is now 24 years old. In 2009, he was asked to give a DNA sample to help identify his motherís remains, if they were ever located. At that time he told the investigator that his mother abandoned him and when asked if he wanted a photograph of her, he said no.
Sheriff Hanak says he has long speculated that Jayne was murdered and her body buried on Amy Davisís property on Doe Run Creek Lane near Old Washington. But without solid evidence, he never requested a search warrant. In 1997, he did ask Amy Davis for permission to search the property, and she agreed. But before Hanak could put together a search team, the property was transferred to the control of Steven and John Allen Davis.

Another photo of Jayne:
It's a shame that her son never got to know her.Any man's death diminishes me,
Because I am involved in mankind,
Therefore, send not to know, for whom the bell tolls;
It tolls for thee.

No New Leads in Jayne Davis Disappearance Case
This month, Jayne Davis would have turned 48. But instead of celebrating, her parents, John and Judy Winship, will make a call to Washington County Sheriff Otto Hanak. They call every year to see if any new leads have developed in the disappearance of their daughter. Hanak says that in the past year no new leads have developed. Jayne Davis disappeared April 30th of 1993 after telling her mother she would be traveling from her apartment in Houston to Brenham to pick up her 2 year old son from his grandmother. She has not been seen or heard from since.Sheriff Hanak says he has long speculated that Jayne was murdered and her body buried on Amy Davisís property on Doe Run Creek Lane near Old Washington. But without solid evidence, he never requested a search warrant. In 1997, he did ask Amy Davis for permission to search the property, and she agreed. But before Hanak could put together a search team, the property was transferred to the control of Steven and John Allen Davis.
The Davis family has always maintained that Jayne ran off with a boyfriend, leaving them to raise her son, and that they had nothing to do with her disappearance. No evidence of Jayneís life has surfaced since April 30th, 1993.
