Dorien's name surfaced in the files of an unsolved murder case. According to APD records, Dorien was the person who found the body of Gloria Ann Covington in 1997 in Hilltop Park, more than a year before he disappeared. Police have posted a photograph of Covington on a billboard along Amarillo Boulevard in hopes of finding clues to her death.
Tips flooded the Amarillo Police Department shortly after Dorien became missing in 1998. Two years later, the calls are sporadic and always lead detectives back to the same place.
In the early evening hours of October 27, 1998 , officers were sent on a missing child at the intersection of NW 9th and Lipscomb. Upon arrival, it was determined that 9 year old Dorien Deon Thomas had been missing for over 24 hours. Dorien was last seen on October 26th, near his home on an aqua blue bicycle. He was wearing a red shirt and blue jeans. An extensive search was conducted all over Amarillo , but Dorien has never been found. Foul play is suspected in this case, and no new leads have come forward. Dorien is currently listed on the Missing and Exploited Children’s website, and has been featured on the television show “ America ’s Most Wanted”.
