    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.
