    Hi, Ashley! I am terribly sorry about your mother's disappearance.

    The thread on the Jane Doe was closed because she was ruled out as being your mother, but we can start a new thread here to generate new leads if possible.

    Ashley, have you ever provided a DNA sample in the event that your mom is somewhere and she cannot speak for herself? If we get it entered into CODIS, possible matches like the Jane Doe in IL might pop up.

    I remember that the guy Cruz used to beat her and rape her. One night her and Cruz came into my room when i stayed the night with them ( cuz i mainly lived with my grandma) and said do you want a little brother or sister and I said yes. They left the room and shortly after I heard my mom screaming. I ran out of my room and peaked around the corner and just then her friends were running in and pulling Cruz off of her and she grabbed me and we ran down the strip (in las vegas) and i remember that the Pirate show was going on at Treasure Island and she made me crawl through the people to hide.

    And yes, there is a new detective on the case right now. I am now living in Utah and he had me go to the local police department and submit my DNA.

    Cruz Diaz showing up on Clark County website, for lawsuit auto neglagence filed 6/2009. Maybe they have records at Clark Co of next of kin if he was arrested for this or any other offense.

    All the information on the link about Camille Dadanes is wrong. It names Gary Dotson as being an accused murderer, which is incorrect. Dotson was falsely imprisoned in 1977 for kidnapping and rape. He was one of the first people ever exonerated through DNA testing in the late 1980's. Dotson and Camille were married for a brief time, from 1985 to around 1988. They had a daughter before getting divorced.

    It is unfair to label Gary Dotson a accused murderer, as he had some minor problems with the law once he was released from prison (mainly DWI's), and inability to seek full time employment before DNA proved he was innocent of his crime. The accused murderer was someone Camille met years later, shortly before she went missing. There is no connection between Dotson, who stayed behind in Illinois, and Camille's disappearance in Las Vegas, like the Charley project seems to insinuate.

    I have contacted the webmaster of the Charley project, and hopefully they will make changes, as the information about the case is not factual.

    Is there another thread for this case? Is everything still ongoing? Is the LE contact still the same?
