bump up post
Thanks for bumping this AB, I've looked and looked for news articles with more info about Jackie and have found nothing. So sad.
I found this website and thought it might prove interesting as it ties in to a case about a Jackie Hay.
Quote from the article:
hmmmm pretty interesting. kind of confusing...thanks for the info!
It was from a website that claims to expose injustice in the justice system and it offers up several stories to support its claims. The search engine I was using ignored all that and just brought me to the pages that included the name in my search terms. I did not post the homepage of the website since it seemed unrelated to the search term which was the name of the missing child.
The only article I ever found that so much as mentioned Jackie was about an unrelated case where they used an Amber Alert, and the local sheriff said he wished there had been an Amber Alert at the time Jackie disappeared, cause they might have found her.
hello this case has been done before, but my husband mentioned something to me a while ago that he is related to Jackie Dene Hay http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/h/hay_jackie.html
she went missing in shawnee county in kansas in 1981
does anyone have any infomation?
There's a different photo here:
thank-you anthrobones, i will ask for more information
At the risk of telling you something you may already know:
There is a cold case thread for this case at
and in researching the case I found
could you please tell me what was the family gathering they were getting ready for in this case? > i remember reading somewhere that the whole family were camping somewhere and were getting ready to go on a trip and when they turned around Jackie was gone (?) am i correct on this, afterall i read this last year on the charley project.
No, you didn't. At least, not about Jackie's case. I run the Charley Project and I have no idea where the family was going or what they were doing, other than that it was an outing of some kind. You may be getting her case mixed up with Nyleen Marshall's.
A Topeka, Kansas man is reminded of his own missing daughter after hearing the news of two missing boys reunited with their families.
The father of Jackie Hay speaks out more than twenty-five years after her disappearance.
"She wasn't old enough to be bad. She was a sweet kid," remembers Olen Hay.
He still recalls the day his five-year-old daughter, Jackie Dene Hay, went missing.
"I was getting ready to leave and couldn't find her," says Hay.
The only information police had to go on was given to them by a Gas Service man who saw Jackie following a man. But Hay says police took nearly four hours to begin their search.
"By the time that it took for the police to investigate, he could have been almost to St. Louis."
Hay says he wishes the Amber Alert system would have been in place back in 1981.
This month will mark 29 years that Jackie has been missing. Come home soon.

A new update on Jackie...
High time this thread was bumped...
The link no longer works. I wonder what ever came of their wanting to talk with the tipster again?
Found a couple of links (with no follow up on whether they ever called back):
I discovered this case many years ago as an adult and it has always been in the back of my mind. Mainly because I feel that this could have easily been me. I am the same age as Jackie Hay would have been (I was born in 1976 as well). I lived in Lenexa, KS when I was 5 and looked A LOT like Jackie (small, blonde hair, blue eyes). I vividly remember a time when I was walking down the street alone in my neighborhood, when I was 5 years old, and having a large brown car with 2 men in it drive past me while watching me, circle back around and pull up next to me. I was terrified and ran toward the houses and ran straight home. They drove off. To this day I still think about this, and wonder what could have happened if I had not been scared and run home. Then when I read about Jackie, it just made the hair on the back of my neck stand up. It hit really close to home. I have often wondered if maybe it was connected.
