Tionda, I adopted Spring Doe with the hopes that if you and Diamond are somewhere unidentified, waiting to be found, another family will do the same for you!  My “adopted daughter” is now listed with NamUs!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Sending you and Diamond love and prayers!

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Great Aunt Shelia

Many thanks to the Medical Examiner’s Office and Chicago Police for adding my “adopted daughter” Spring Doe’s case into NamUs. This was one of my primary goals when I “adopted” her in September of 2012. That goal has been accomplished with the help and cooperation of the Chicago Police, Medical Examiner’s Office, NCMEC and NamUs. I would especially like to thank Illinois NamUs Regional Administrator Anthropologist Dr. Emily Craig for personally assisting the staff at the Medical Examiner’s office with getting Spring Doe listed. Just having a listing in NamUs may be all that is needed to bring her home. If not, I’m going to be continuing the search for Spring’s identity, as if she were my own flesh and blood. That’s what I hope someone will do for every unidentified now resting in morgues across the country.

Spring is the FIRST Chicago Doe listed in NamUs and our new Medical Examiner Dr. Stephen Cina assures us that she is just the first of many Chicago cases that will be added to the NamUs system in the near future.

As I write this, behind the scenes, Spring’s information is being compared to cases of missing girls from across the country. More progress will be posted as it occurs. Spring’s DNA will be added to the system shortly, which will boost her NamUs Profile rating.

Meanwhile, here is a link to Spring’s current “three-star” NamUs profile: https://identifyus.org/en/cases/10693

Blessings to you all as the search continues!
