For years, Betty Goines slept on her living room couch. The mother of missing 12-year-old Tiffany Michele Goines held out hope that one day her little girl would walk through the door. It was December 5, 1987, when Tiffany left the apartment she shared with her family to play outside with her friends. The pre-teen was assumed to be enjoying a day in her Frederick, Maryland neighborhood, but on that Winter day, she disappeared.
Like many kids, Tiffany was expected to return home by the time dinner was ready. However, she never showed up. Her family and friends took to the streets to find her, but after driving around town for hours, they came up empty. It was time to contact the authorities.
Investigators would later learn that someone had seen Tiffany the day she went missing. According to reports, Tiffany was spotted near her apartment complex getting into a light blue Chevy Impala. Some reports state the vehicle was a red convertible. The person behind the wheel has never been identified, nor has the car been located. The apartment complex that Tiffany and her family lived in back in 1987 was demolished in 2005.
At the time of her disappearance, Tiffany Michelle Goines was described as being 5 feet tall and 78 pounds. She had black/dark brown hair and brown eyes. Her hair was reportedly in a “short length braided” style. The Governor Thomas Johnson Middle School student was last seen wearing a white sweatshirt, blue pants with a white belt, brown gloves, and white shoes without shoelaces. Tiffany also wore large-framed prescription glasses. One of her eyes reportedly turned slightly inward. She would be 45-years-old at the time of this publication.
Anyone with information regarding this case is urged to contact the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children at 800-THE-LOST (843-5678) or their local authorities.
Please share this story about Tiffany Michele Goines in order to reignite the investigation into her case. She is our sister and her life matters.
Milwaukee Jane Doe: Body Found Floating In River In 1982
Her death was classified as an “accidental drowning,” but she has gone unidentified.
It is always unbelievable when a young person found deceased goes unidentified, especially for decades. In the Spring of 1982 on March 16, it is reported that an off-duty firefighter made his way to the Milwaukee River to check on his boat. It was there that he came across the remains of a young woman—later named Milwaukee Jane Doe—floating between two metal barrels on the pier. Medical examiners did their best to pull identifiers with the hopes of finding out who she may be, but in the decades that have followed, authorities don’t seem any closer to learning Jane Doe’s name.
