    Circumstances of Disappearance
    Jackson was last seen leaving the "Mariner's Harbor Motel" on Staten Island, New York on August 14, 1983. Her mother sent her to purchase chicken on Forest Avenue. She never returned.

    Three days after her disappearance investigators questioned Andre Rand. But they were unable to bring charges due to lack of witnesses and evidence. At the time of Tiahease's disappearance, Rand was known to have a campsite in Baron Hirsch Cemetery, Graniteville, which is less than half a mile from the Conca D'Oro. Tiahease's mother also told investigators a man fitting Rand's description often hung out in a van in a parking lot near the motel.

    Etan Patz is Not Alone: 15 Missing Child Cases in NYC Remain Unsolved

    [snip]

    Tiahease Jackson, 10, vanished on Aug. 14, 1983, after she left her home on Staten Island to buy chicken wings for a neighbor. According to reports, police believe she may have fallen prey to Andre Rand, a convicted kidnapper and sexual offender who hunted for victims on the streets of Staten Island in the 1970s and '80s. But no one has ever proved it.

    Does anyone know what can be done when Doe Network says DNA available and NamUs says "Sample not available"? Does that mean it was collected by LE but isn't entered in the national database?

    Has anyone encountered this before?

    Any chance Rand didn't do it? maybe it was just tunnel vision. Where there any other suspects at the time? I know he killed some kids and became a myth a perfect example of the boogie man based on his mental behaviour but he never confessed and her body was never found. Rand is still alive, he's a good suspect but I hope police turned all possible stones. And if this lunatic did it why was her body so hard to find.I've seen that documentary about him BTW Cropsey.

    If Rand did kill her, he must have been pretty lucky in finding a spot to hide the body. I doubt he had access to many places outside of the city, it seems like he stayed in the same general area most of the time.

    The one thing about this case that has always bothered me is the fact that Tiahease vanished in the middle of August...wearing a ski jacket.
