Debra Jean Houston, 29: Missing From Texas Since 1989
*Update* March 30, 2022: The sister of Debra Jean Houston shared with me on Facebook that this week, the family was contacted to confirm that her remains have been located. Specifics about the case were not shared with me, but I sincerely offer my condolences to her loved ones.
Sadly, once again, there is very little known about another case. This story comes from Houston, Texas, and is about a missing 29-year-old woman named Debra Jean Houston. Her personal affairs, work-life, family, and social relationships are unknown, as there doesn’t seem to be any news reports about her case.
All that has been shared is that Debra vanished from Houston on December 25, Christmas Day, back in 1989. She was said to have been last seen at Hughes Lounge that day, but whether she was an employee or a patron is unknown. I hope to connect with someone from her family to gain insight into Debra’s background and to share more about her in the future. We can only hope.
Additionally, it is unclear if authorities are treating Debra’s case as an endangered missing person, if they believe foul play was involved, or if there are any other contributing factors that may have aided in her going missing.
At the time of her disappearance, Debra Jean Houston stood 5 feet 7 inches to 5 feet 9 inches tall and weigh 140 to 145 pounds. She had black/dark brown hair (styled shoulder length and wavy) with brown eyes. Debra has a deformity on her left finger, but reports don’t specify which one. She also has several scars: on her face, her arms, her upper lip, one near her left eye, and a scar of a gunshot wound on her abdomen. She was last seen wearing a black sweater with white lettering, blue jeans, and red Roper shoes. It has been reported that she used several aliases including: “Deborah,” “Linda Davis,” “Mary Jean Johnson,” “Princess Johnson,” “Tammy Jean Johnson,” “Brenda Davis,” “Brenda Johnson”, “Debra Jean Harris,” “Debbie Ann Rogers.” Debra would be 61-years-old at the time of this publication.
