    Does anyone think this could be Kimberly Sue Doss?

    Kimberly Sue Doss:16 yrs old- 1982

    Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
    Missing Since: September 27, 1982 from Davenport, Iowa
    Classification: Endangered Missing
    Date Of Birth: February 12, 1966
    Age: 16 years old
    Height and Weight: 5'2, 125 pounds

    Distinguishing Characteristics: Brown hair, brown eyes. Doss may be using the alias Kimberly Kathleen Gardner or simply the last name Gardner. She may also use the alternate birthdate of September 17, 1963. Doss has a gap between her upper front teeth.

    Details of Disappearance
    Doss was living in Houston, Texas at the time of her disappearance. She was reported missing on September 1, 1982. On September 27, she was seen at a Greyhound bus station in Davenport, Iowa. It is unclear where she was going; some believe she planned to return to Houston to visit her father. Her family never heard from her again.



    Unidentified White Female

    This unidentified female was found in Orange County, TX, about 110 miles east of Houston. The age, height and hair color are around the same. The hair style in the composite drawing looks the same, and it does look like there might be a gap in the teeth, though it's hard to tell from the drawing. The unidentified female was found 11/1/84 and had been dead at least a year when found.

    They do look alike, but the unidentified remains mentions she may have had braces for her teeth at one time. It would be easy for LE to compare dental info between the two.

    I don't think that they look alike. Kimberely was such a pretty girl. I wonder how she disappeared and where from...home...school...etc?

    This case is now 25 years old. Note discrepancy in dates. Title claims that she was missing since 27 Spetember, yet case summary indicates since 1 September 1982.

    Aged progression is an artists rendition of what the missing person would look like now/older.

    The second poster posted a different missing person by the same name, but they are not the same people. In both cases though, there were age progression pics done. That's typical of missing person cases. Especially for missing children.

    Do you know someone that looks like her? You could always contact the investigative number on the missing persons page and go from there.

    I'm freaking out i think lol...
    they both look really familiar to me lol...
    i promise NOT everyone looks familiar to me...that's why i can't let this go...
    On this link, http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/d/doss_kimberly.html , there are alot of different dates and stories about her missing and where she was spotted and stuff.
    It won't let me copy and paste from there though.

    Hmmm....since you asked....i think you MAYBE you need more sleep??? :)
    No...just saying....i don't see that at all in her.....
    there are two places that are really sticking out in my mind....
    i'm pretty sure the girl that i think looks soooooo much like this missing girl....
    i'm pretty sure she works at a grocery store around here...i can almost picture her....
    OR
    i think maybe at a doctor's office i go to....
    i'm sitting here picturing her at both places....
    it's somewhere that i've seen her LOTS of times....
    i'm just trying to figure out which place.....

    I thought the Kimberly from the Doe Network might fit one of the unidentified. The gap in the front teeth and the picture looked like someone I had seen being compared in another thread. I scoured the threads for a little while yesterday and couldn't find it. I kept getting distracted by other cases. There has got to be an easier way to compare the different sites and the missing to the unidentified. Does any one offer suggestions on that? Also off topic, why can't we label threads in a consistent manner....like use a name, dob, and date missing/date found, etc. That would make looking through threads for the one in question or comparing a little easier I think.

    I have so many questions about this case:

    1. Why did she choose to see her dad at this time-was it a cover up for meeting someone else?
    2. If she was traveling to Texas, how and why did she end up in CA as a prostitute? Did she meet the wrong person along the way and get forced into human trafficking?
    3. Where she vanished between Iowa and TX, of course, and if she vanished w/in TX, was it along the Highway to Hell/Killing Field???
    4. Did she have a history of running away?
    5. Did her friends know anything?

    I am really intersted in that lead about her working as a prostitute in CA. I think that is genuine, but girls who work under guys like that get moved around a lot...if she's been working under those circumstances since the 80s, I think she may have been harmed by now (through her work or drugs), or have a new life and indentity, not wanting to be found because of what she went thru. The biggest part of this is finding out where she vanished.
    If she was traveling by Greyhound bus, wouldn't there be a trace of her travels?
