Working late night and graveyard shifts can be daunting. I know that from firsthand experience as my job requires me to finish work at 2:00 a.m. at the latest, but unlike Lisa Dianne Jameson, I get to work from home. It was November 4, 1991, in Chandler, Arizona when Lisa finished her overnight shift at an electronics business. According to reports, Lisa was able to get a ride from one of her coworkers who dropped her off around McQueen Road and Chandler Boulevard around 7:15 a.m. It’s unclear where she exited the vehicle as reports don’t specify if she was at a house, apartment, or corner.
In December, Lisa’s vehicle, a 1989 Pontiac LeMans, was located in the nearby city of Phoenix. It was reportedly found abandoned in the parking lot of an adult bookstore, but there was nothing inside to suggest that a violent struggle or altercation of any kind occurred inside. Nothing that authorities were able to lift from the vehicle aided in finding out how or why Lisa Dianne Jameson vanished, either.
Some have suggested that Lisa possibly took a trip or started a new life, but that wasn’t in her character. All of her clothing and personal items were left at her home with her husband, and those close to her couldn’t believe that she would leave behind her two-year-old son. Lisa’s credit cards and bank accounts remained untouched, and her family—a large group that included five of Lisa’s siblings—didn’t understand where she could be.
However, reports state that just 24 hours before the 23-year-old went missing, she shared with her mother that she suspected she was pregnant. Lisa allegedly had mixed feelings about the news, considering she also told her mom that her husband didn’t want any other children. As time progressed, it’s reported that Lisa’s family suspected that her husband was somehow involved in her disappearance. Police, however, never charged him and it’s unclear if he was named as a suspect in the case. Two years after his wife disappeared, Lisa’s husband abandoned their son, who was later adopted by Lisa’s parents, and moved to Bolivia.
Because Lisa resided in the city of Gilbert, Arizona, the police department there has been in charge of her case.
At the time of her disappearance, Lisa Dianne Jameson stood 5 feet 6 inches tall and 122 pounds. She had black/dark brown hair and dark brown eyes. She was last seen wearing a pink shirt, blue jeans, white shoes, a silver rope necklace, and a silver herringbone necklace. She had four piercings in each ear and may go by the last name “Collins.” Lisa would be 51-years-old at the time of this publication.
Anyone with information about this case is urged to contact the Gilbert Police Department at (480) 635-7360 or their local authorities.
