The missing – Diana Lynn Harris

DHarris The daughter of Diana Lynn Harris has turned detective to solve the long-running mystery of her mother’s fate after she disappeared in Monroe County, Florida 25 years ago. She was ten years old at the time and had been in Michigin with her brother visiting their father.

Christine Hill believes her mother stumbled across some illegal activity, possibly involving drugs, at a house. Her exhaustive investigation showed that she was most probably murdered, though her body has never been found. Despite naming the central characters involved, there have so far been no arrests. Christine has not given up.

She says:

“I had my mother for only ten years, but I thank God for every one of them.  I have beautiful memories of my life with her. She worked hard, cooked wonderful food, and was never too busy to play with my brother and me.  She was a very affectionate mother and, no matter how tired she was or how weighed down by worries, she gave us unstinting love and attention.

My mom was my world.  For 25 years I’ve been trying to find out what happened to her, and I will not stop until I get an answer that makes sense.”

In memory of those who are still missing.


  1. Dear Christine,

    I wish you luck for your crusade, and Gerald Oxby’s family too. I can’t image anything more cruel than never knowing the true answers, especially if they are innocent victims of an horrific crime. I’m sure your mother would be so proud of you, and I Know I would be doing the same as you if I was in your position. I am so glad you found my post and my heart goes out to you. I send you my warmest wishes.

  2. Hello Ellee,

    Thank you so much for posting about my missing Mom. I am very determined to find the answers that surround her disappearance and to find her killer/killers. I am also looking for answers in Tom Stump’s case. Tom disappeared in 1995 in the Florida Keys. Even with the cases being 14 years apart I believe they are connected and involve the same people. I’d also like to tell you about another missing person and he is from the United Kingdom, his name is Gerald Douglas Oxby. This man also disappeared in the Florida Keys at around the same exact time as my Mom did. Gerald’s case is one of great interest to me as well. His son has a site for him here,

    Thank you again for your kindness. Please feel free to email me at

    Christine Hill
