    Details of Disappearance
    Harris was last seen in Chesterfield County, Virginia on April 5, 1991. She dropped her son off at her her mother's residence in the 2100 block of Turner Road and departed at approximately 11:00 a.m. She appeared to be in a hurry at the time. Harris planned to run errands at Cloverleaf Mall, which was less than one mile from her mother's home, and said she would return at 3:00 p.m. She has never been heard from again.
    Harris's silver 1984 Honda Prelude with Virginia license plates numbered TJL368 was discovered abandoned behind the shopping center at approximately 1:00 p.m. The vehicle was parked on an access road in the 7500 block of Cloverleaf Drive, near some power lines. The car was locked and the emergency flashers had been activated, but it was in good working order and there were no signs of Harris or any struggle near the scene. Her pocketbook was missing from the vehicle and has never been found.
    There were several reported sightings of Harris in the area in the months after her disappearance, but these have not been confirmed. She has never been heard from again. Her family members believe foul play was involved in her case. She was employed by Virginia Power in 1991, and was divorced. She resided in the 10100 block of Remora Drive. Harris's family stated she was a dependable employee and a dedicated mother, did not smoke or drink or use drugs, and rarely dated in 1991. Her hobbies include shopping and aerobic exercise. Authorities stated they had a prime suspect in Harris's disappearance, a male acquaintance with whom she had had a secret relationship. They have not publicly named the individual or charged him with any wrongdoing in her case.

    I was Ms. Harris' neighbor at the time, and although I was only a child, I still remember it as though it were not long ago. I even remember her as a person. This case can still be solved.

    Could this be a possibility

    I am thinking they would have checked into this, but I am going to call about it anyway. Or if someone has any knowledge if this has been looked into, let me know.

    I can see some similarities between them. I can't figure why Donna would up and leave on her own and stage a disappearance, unless there are details of her life not being released.

    With it looking like she was taken against her will, it is possible she could have been kept for months with this possible match.

    I think it is worth looking into.

    EXPERT: Human bones found at Cloverleaf Mall will re-open cold cases

    Posted on: 10:50 pm, April 10, 2012, by Alix Bryan, updated on: 11:36pm, April 10, 2012


    Experts say police will soon start taking a look at cold cases to see it they have a match.

    Retired police Capt. Steve Neal says ones they will check into include the case of a missing mom from Chesterfield. She was last seen in the area back in 1991.

    Donna Gail Harris’ car was found with flashers on along an access road to the back parking lot of what used to be Sears.

    Kat's link was updated to report that the remains found were those of an old gravesite, and are estimated to be about 100 years old.

    Thoughts on this doe as a possible match?

    Roughly the same height. The only thing I find problematic is the described colour of the UID's hair (light brown and Donna's looks darker).

    Donna was divorced so I expect her x(s) was checked out. Was this man she supposedly had the secret affair with married? If so, then he and his wife are up for a look.
    This my opinion and to the best of my knowledge, that is, if I'm not joking.
