    The few details claims she took a Greyhound bus from Texss to visit her father in Davenport. Yet, we have no information or proof, she even reached Davenport, or Iowa period. Then we hear that she might have been missing since 1980 and not 1982.

    Where is Sgt. Joe Friday, who asks for the facts and speculation. Can we get some more facts of when she left wherever in Texas.

    I wonder, if this was a spur of the moment visit or a planned trip. If it was a planned trip, did she have a suitcase. How long was she going to be in Iowa. We don’t where she started, if she made it out of Texas, crossed any state borders or decide to runaway.

  2. Brenda says:

    Why are there two different missing dates, two years apart? What is the real story here? And from what I understand, Kimberly was in Texas and took a Greyhound bus to Davenport Iowa to visit her father, but never arrived at her father’s house. So who verified that she actually made it to Davenport?

  3. Angela says:

    Please take notice of the following Facebook post. They look so similar.

      There is a resemblance however Kimberly Doss was alive and last seen approximately two years (per info above) after the poor girl was found in Texas that you linked.

      Nice thought though (being sincere).

    • Patrick Kerrigan says:

      The Jane Doe, was found in 1980. Kimberly disappeared in September 1982. Thanks for your research. The problem I have is the lack of details on many of these cases. What do we know about her family situation.

    • Sadie Belle says:

      There are discrepancies with the date she actually disappeared. She is reported to have been missing as early as March 24, 1980, by family members. The 1980’s were a different time and missing children cases were handled far differently than they are today. Her mother lived in Texas at the time and her father in Davenport. I don’t think the Walker County Doe can be ruled out so easily. There is a possibility and without a DNA comparison to the family members to say one way or the other, it’s important she be considered

    Schellt, I know someone who looks very similar to the girl in the picture. She has a lot of the same facial features, and she is now living very close to Davenport. I’m not 100% sure it’s her, but it looks very similar.

  6. John Laird says:

    Has Kimberley Sue Doss’s DNA ever been compared to Princes Doe, Found dead in Blairstown, N.J. August, 1982. I have been inquiring for years now with no answers. Is it possible there are some mix ups with DNA samples from wrong parentage?

  7. Schelly says:

      Do you know of walker country Jane die? Cold she be your sister?

    • Jody Ewing says:

      Schelly, though Kim’s case has been removed from the Iowa Department of Public Safety’s (IDPS) Missing Person Information Clearinghouse (MPIC), Kim is still listed on as having gone missing at age 16, with the date of last contact on Sept. 1, 1982.
      NamUs gets this information directly from the investigating agency. When a case is removed from Iowa’s MPIC, they do not notify us as to why the individual has been removed. Yet Kim’s case remains on both NamUs and the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.

      I cannot explain why she was removed from the State database yet kept on two national databases. Also, the lead detectives are rotated over time, and Det. Jordan Sander of the Davenport PD is currently handling her case file. His contact information is listed as (563) 328-6749.
