It is always surprising to come across missing person cases involving children that have little to no information. It would seem that there were be an overwhelming amount of news reports about a kid who disappeared only to be never seen again, but that isn’t the case for Valina Magee. It was around 9:00 a.m. on June 28, 1989, when the 13–year-old was on her way to school, walking in Chicago’s South Side when she disappeared.
There have been conflicting reports regarding the spelling of Valina Magee’s last name, as some sources use the surnames “McGee” or “McGhee.” Also, some agencies have listed the day the teen went missing as June 29. Unfortunately, often children around Valina’s age are often treated as runaways by authorities or their cases aren’t investigated thoroughly. Decades later, Valina remains missing, little has been reported, and there are many unanswered questions as to how much information the Chicago Police Department was able collect to back in 1989. It’s unknown if there were ever any suspects in her case.
At the time of her disappearance, Valina Magee stood 5 feet 3 inches tall and 120 pounds. She had black/dark brown curly hair and brown eyes. It’s reported that Valina was last seen wearing black checkered shorts and a white turtleneck sweater. The Doe Network reports that her dental records and fingerprints aren’t available, but there is a record of her DNA for comparison. She would be 44-years-old at the time of this publication.
Anyone with information is urged to contact the Chicago Police Department at 312-745-6052 or their local authorities. Her agency case number is M11A7058.
Please share this story about Valina Magee to help 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.
