Thanking God that my Adopted Daughter Spring Doe finally got massive media coverage in the Chicago area last week thanks to a community alert sent out by the Chicago Police. Hoping the right person has seen this and the tip that can bring her home comes in.
Never give up hope. Spring, we will find your family!

Love you, Diamond and Tionda, wherever you are! We will never stop looking for you. In four days, another vigil be held for you in Chicago. While remembering you, I hope everyone will also share and think about my “adopted daughter” Spring Doe. The only thing worse than having a missing family member is for your family member to be found and remain unidentified. Someone somewhere is wondering what happened to Spring Doe, just like my family wonders where Diamond and Tionda are. Recently, a living Doe was identified because the post about her being found in California went viral on social media.
How many cases would be solved if the public helped EVERY missing person or unidentified person case go VIRAL on the anniversary?
Blessings to all who are still searching for answers!
I want to start out this post by expressing my grattitude to Sue Olsen, mother of missing Brad Olsen. Sue heard my Adopt A Doe plea and proceeded to adopt the Bolingbrook John Doe found behind a truck stop in 1998. AND she is in the process of adopting another Doe which I will write more about on another day.
1998 Bolingbrook John Doe was originally thought to be Caucasian. Through the pro-active efforts of the Will County Coroner and Will County’s Cold Case Squad, he was discovered to be African American.
His case needs new publicity so that his family may be found and his name returned to him. Here is his information on NamUs:
Not all families report their loved ones as missing and may not know to check cases at namus.gov.
This Doe was found with a Chicago Pager, so we need Publicity both in Chicago and the surrounding suburbs.
Help us get his facial approximation and the approximation of my “Adopted” daughter Spring Doe out in the media where the right person can see them and identify them.
If Diamond and Tionda or Brad are out there unidentified, we hope someone else will do as much for them.
God bless you and thanks for your help!
Shelia, Great Aunt of Diamond and Tionda Bradley
My adopted daughter “Spring Doe” (Medical Examiner’s case 435 April 2005) now has her DNA entered into NamUs. Many thanks to the Medical Examiner’s office for getting this vital data entered! Praying for a match. Behind the scenes, other progress is happening that can’t be discussed here.
Thank you so much to the Medical Examiner’s office and the Chicago Police Department for caring about this Doe. Spring’s NamUs rating is now up from 3 Stars to 4 Stars out of 5:
