What Happened to D'wan Sims?

ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Hi and welcome back to did you lock thedoor, the PODCAST, I'm your host Payton Reece and I have the most special guestwith me today. Someone I've wanted on my podcast for a while. I know I'veintroduced a couple of my guests now as my best friend, but truly my bestfriend, my mom hello. Are you excited okay? So first I just want to take asecond to plug a movie. We just finished watching the IMVISIBAL man.I've seen it three times now. I love it so so much my nonhorror movie momseemed to enjoy it too. Did you like it momy did I liked it a lot, especiallyappreciate that you told me when, to close my eyes really liked it greatsuspense such a getting well and done yes. So if you haven't seen theinvisible man that was one of the first movies that was in theaters to getreleased to video on demands now that we're all stuck at home, so I justwanted to recommend that so highly really quickly. I have been obsessedwith that movie. Since it came out. I was lucky enough to see it in theaters,but please watch it at home. If you can. Yes, it would be a great one. Intheater is the quietness of a movi theater that lookd really intense, atot,intensify yeah thrill of it anyway. I don't want to put this off any longerwe'll get into the case. Today. We're going to be discussing thedisappearance of a little boy named Duan Sims Duan Christian Sims was born October,twenty ninth of one thousand ninehunded and ninety to his mom duana Harris andhis Dad Zachery sims and the two weren't together. I couldn't find ifthey had been married and had gotten a divorce or they hadn't been marriedwhen they had one, but Duana did have primary custody of him. She had aboyfriend at the time that was not zakary. Zakarey was still involved inDuan's life, just less so than Duana was Antone, like I said, lived with hismom Duana and her boyfriend at the time in Levonia, Michigan Don was describedas a lively young boy that loved watching TV, his favorite show beingthe mighty morphin power rangers. We're going to jump ahead a little bit herein December, O one thousand nine hundred and ninety four twan would beabout three feet tall and weigh about fifty pounds and I'll post a picture ofhim in my instagram. He had the cutest little smile. I love looking atfictions. He Daes he looks like he wou, just hislaugh and smile would be so infectious. He looks like the happiest sweetestlittle boy so on the afternoon of December Eleveth, one thousand ninehundred and ninety four Zuana and one would leave for some Christmas shoppingat their local wonderland mall at around onre thirty in the afternoon andDjanna estimates their arrival at between ondred and forty and two PM. The two would first head into a targetthat was located on an offset of the mall and look at Vahs tapes and wannasaid that little Dan really really wanted to buy one, but she told himthat they couldn't today, as they had other presents to buy, and the line wastoo long. The two then would walk through a corridor between the targetand the main area in the mall, and she said this was that around uand thirtyDuan was walking behind his mom, but he was talking to her the whole time, soshe knew that he was still there when all of a sudden, she asked him aquestion that was met with silence. You know that worries me right there. Hewas held again for at the time...

...it just amazes me, the number of times you see children walking behindthe parent in today's wornd anything the children should always be in thefront. Always, Oh, my goodness, I know with him soyoung. You would think that she was holding his hand or something butabsolutely I guess she thought hearing him talk.She knew he was there, so she probably didn't think she had anything to worryabout butlike. I said she asked him a question and didn't get an answer, soshe turned around and suddenly her little boy was nowhere to be found. Thetwo were at the time right in front of the KB toy store, so want to figurethat he had just ran in to look at some toys. She walked up and down the aislestry to find him and after searching for about half an hour, she would call hermom Beverley, who was one biological grandmother to let her know that shecouldn't find him Dwana, then flag down a cleaning lady to alert her to thefact that she couldn't find her son. The cleaning lady then called myllsecurity for her and at the same time, beverly who, as the grandma, got intoher car and headed to the Wonderland Mall Sane Sawd, that she called someoneother than the police as her first call a little bit. But I mean she did alertsomeone who would alert mall security, so I'm sure she's trying not to freakout of this time. You Zackery Sims, who again was Duan'sfather, was also relerted as to what was happening, and he immediately cameto the mall as well. Malsecurity would get right on it andsend personnel out to search both them mall and the parking lot, and they alsoalerted the Lavonia police department to let them know that a little boy hadgone missing. The police would dispatch and officerand five sergeants to help in the search and each officer would be givena different section of the mall parking lots to explore. Thankfully, the mall security cameraswere on and fully functional at the time. I know it can get so frustratingin cases sometimes where the security cameras just woren't working, but inthis case they were so testingan. WAITTHIS is exactly twoweeks before Christmas target is PA two weeks before Christmas and every MallIsm, even with the cameras on HMM. I know U no anyway, so mall security would getDawana and, as far as I can tell, it was Danna amallsecurity officer and a police officer. Viewed the security footagetogether to see if they could find her and ane on it and see where he mighthave gone. An an interview with true crime garage that I listen to and someof my research for this episode. A mall security officer was there that day andhe helped search Fordan or sorry. The True Crime Garage guys interviewed aMall Security Officer that was there that day and helped in the search, andhe stated that he interacted with Duana and she was fully acting like a motherthat was genuinely worried about her son, stating that she seemed to beproviding detailed descriptions about what they had done, where he might havegone, and she was very, very distressed that day de one was described aswearing. A blue hooded, three quarter length winter jacket over a yellow,blue and green windbreaker, dark blue, sweat, pants and low top feless neggers duanna would quickly point out a motherand son that seemed to fit the description of her Andan. The motherand son entered the store target at hondred and forty four PM, whichmatched Wana story. However, one of the molt security officers would quicklynotice that the woman on the tape was wearing a brown jacket and a baseballcap. He then looked over at Tuanna and was suddenly hit with the realizationthat she was wearing a black jacket and had no baseball cap in site no way. Oh,my gosh no way.

Oh, my Gosh whene investigators pointedout that the jacket the woman was wearying was not the same color asDanas. She fell silent. Oh my gosh, do you know whoris this guy? Well, I mean right there. Oh my gosh,and I'm wondering she hasn't called the boyfriend. Yet no, she hasn't. Weactually don't hare much about the boyfriend. He's not really mentioned inany articles or anything really, as I would think if she was involved withsomeone else. That would be one of her first calls to Sanley before the fatherm you know, but that she would want him there helpingto or to know what was going on, so she might have called him, but again,that's not mentioned in any articles or podcasts or youtube videos or anythingnoreally share about him. But after a few minutes she reaffirmed that thewoman on the videotape was her. The officers once again pointed out thediscrepancies to which Duana once again fell silent for a few minutes beforestating oh well. I guess that's not me what the group then watched the securityfootage, starting from an hour before Duana claimd, that she and her son hadarrived at them all and at no time did officers see a boy matching duansdescription on the video tape. They saw plenty of mothers and sons that could have been about the same age, butno one in the clothes that one was described as wearing and no one thatmatched yeah. I mean there was just no one, no woman in a black jacket and alittle boy in a blue overcoat at all. Oh, my goodness, okay M, and so you don't see them on the videochape at all. You. You see her, but we'll get into that a little later, butyou see her without Dwan in different clothes without well in the clothesthat she's wearing but, like I said she pointed to a woman in a brown jacketthat was with a little boy that she, I guess assumed she could trick thepolice into thinking with her. But, oh, my goodness, I know interesting duana would agree to headto the police station where she would provide a statement and then head home,and in that statement she would essentially say the same thing. Theyarrived between hundred and forty and two PM, and she lost him right in frontof the toystor. A few days later, duana would return tothe police station to take a polygraph which she would fail ohno and a coupledays after that she would take a second one and upon realizing that she failedagain. Reportedly she ripped the paper out of the polygraph machine and leftthe station. Well polygraph yeah, while the failed polygraph definitelydoes not mean guilty. I would say that reaction of ripping out the papers is not looking great for her yeah andall Knowe, especially in the eyes of thepolice M, but sill she's, not asd, for an Attorne or anything. No, not that Icould find okay. WANO would make statements to the pressin the following days, implying that one being a black child had an impacton the investigation. Stating quote this little black kid is lost in an allwhite city. Lavonia just wants the thing to go away. I googled the demographics for Levoniaand I wasn't able to find the ones for one thousand nine hundred and ninetyfour, but I did look at data for the city today and today it is eighty fourpercent white and four percent africanamerican. So I would imaginethat it was even less ethnically diverse at the time ht, so she's,probably not incorrect in the statement that it isin all white city. I also found, though, both through newspaper articles andagain in the interview that the Mall...

Security Officer did with true crimegarage that the police did seem to take this case seriously. From the verybeginning, the security officer stated that he witnessed first hand how hardpolice officers were working the case and in on thousand nine hundred andninety five newspaper article, then police Sergeant Ken Marlow, revealedthat he kept a photo of Dan on his desk. He was quoted as saying I look at thiskids picture every day. I'm not going to forget him, and I don't want anybodyelse to forget him, that child did nothing wrong in thiswhole world. Sadly, Sergeant Marlow has since passedaway. Investigators would receive over eight hundred tips within twelve daysfollowing Don's disappearance, one tip even led the investigators to Floridato search for the boy. None of these tips led investigators, two to onethough, or even to any clues. That would lead them in the direction ofwhat had happened when talking to witnesses. Severalpeople who had been at the mall that day would report seeing Duana, althoughall of them said that they saw her alone, not in the company of a child atany time, which would be a good reason for her to say he was walking behindher true so that they would never be seen together true, but hopefully hewouldn't have been walking that far behind her that it didn't like theywere together. That's a recipe for trouble, but no, I definitely see whatyou're saying my hearts just breaking already thinking of any mom who an anychild he get separated it two witnesses would actually report that they sawDwanta arrive at the mall at three thirty pm alone, implying that Duan wasnever even at the Wonderland Mall. That day, this doesn't quite fit into theknown timeline as uana alerted mall employees a little after three PM, sothree thirty would have been a bit late. However, we do know that when histestimony is not always accurate, so they might have seen her arrivingcloser to three pm or they could have seen a woman that wasn't even her. TheLavonia Police Department has stated, though, that they do not believe thatDan ever entered the Wonderland Mall on December, Eleventh One thousand ninehundred and ninety four. First of all, when reviewing the video footage, theydon't see him at all. You see Duana, but you never seed one and in anewspaper article from two thousand and nine, a Levona detective sergeant bythe name of Shelley Holloway stated were confident that he never made it toWunderland mall and in reference to video footage of Duana. He said you seeher walking around not reacting or concerned that her son is missing and yet there's not enough evidence ofany kind for them to arrest her. That just doesn't make sense. In one thousand, nine hundred andninety five Duana gave an interview saying that she was absolutelydevastated over her son's disappearance. She said that Sheh'd been receivingtherapy to help her cope and in the same article I quoted earlier fromSergeant Marlow Beverly Harris who was Duana's mother is quoted as sying. Shedoesn't smile anymore. She functions, but there's no spirit in her. In onethousand, nine hundred and ninety nine investigators received a tip that a bagof bones had been found in deerborn heights Michigan. However, DNA testingwould prove that the bones did not belong to little one in late. TwoThousand and three remains of a yet an identified child were tested againstUANS DNA. However, they would yet again prove not to be related to this case. Acouple of years later, Dana would move out of the area quickly marry someonenew and have children with this man quickly. Mary, I mean that's, that'swhat I said. I don't W. I don't know how quickly, but she changed her last name, eitherJackson or wiggans. I've seen it reported both ways. I see Jackson moreso I'm leaning towards that one, but I have seen both reportedly and I don'tknow how married someone else again, true shoot you I have seen it reported.I don't know how they would know this, so I don't know how accurate it is.Take it with a grain of salt, but I...

...have seen it or forded that her newchildren know little to nothing of Duan and Wana almost never speaks on thisaspect of her life anymore. She has said, however, that she keeps a photoof Duan in her car and that she looks at it every day. How would you handlethat? Do you think? Let's say: She's not guilty, you knowand she is in this new family. How often do you talk about the one? You love so much that youcan't that you gree for, but you can't everGrie for because you don't know what happened. You know you at some point someone you know, Osomebody going O say: You've got to stop talking about him orher. It's like. No, I don't. I want toremember Com Oer, I she's guilty. That's a different story that I can'tsee you as a parent. I'm sure you can shed more light on that. But I know inlistening to the true crime garage interview. The security officer statedthat he has kids now and he can't even imagine moving away from the place. He definitely can't imagine notdiscussing his child. Atbout went missing not trying to actively find hischild no matter of the costs. Yeah, maybe you're, right Yououl, think I want to stay here. So he know you know if he is still heresomehow he can find me M. I know I've heard, for example, in theBrandon Swanson case he was college age student who went missing his parentsstill to this day, leave the porch light on every night so that he knowshe's welcome home. Should he come back even I'm going back to thining abouther in her marriage if, if she goes by two different names,potentially, if you're thinking your son, you don'tknow what happened to your son. Why would you even allow your name tochange and ass? You will never find you then ever interesting. That sounds like someonewho doesn't want other people to find her mm yeah. She, in my opinion, didn't handle that inthe best way- and I know neither of US know what it would be like to be in thesituation. Thankfully, but the security officer said that he's located duuanassocial media and obviously we have no proof of this, but he comes off aspretty trustworthy to me and he says that there's literally no trace of Dwanon her social media anywhere, no mention at all a lot of stuff about hernew kids that nothing about one in late. Two Thousand and nineteen, which wouldbe twenty five years after Dwan Sims, disappeared a man that I believe isnamed Mike Cash. I only found that in one article there are plenty of articles on thisman, but only one of them mentions his name, so I'm pretty sure it's Mike cashcame forward stating that he believes he might be the missing one. Please confirmed that they met with himand they took a Dana Swab. They did say that it could take up to three monthsbefore they had the results and police Captain Ronald Tig tag tigits Taig. So ever you want to say that stated we're just waiting for theresults we had. So many people put a ton of time into this work hard on it.You have a major case like this o you want to get it solved. It would meaneverything to me. It would mean everything to our organization, andit's just one of those big things. You'd like to have closure in IT'STRAGIC TIG. Also, interestingly, remarked thatWana does still keep in touch with the police department when they reach outto her and that she seems to be very cooperative now. Does it say why that...

...cash thought that he would be one? Ifound in one article that it said he didn't know who his birthparents were,but that's all that it said so not really, but I'm sure I mean that'senough of nextnation. DWANNA actually did come forward tospeak on this man that thinks he might be her son. She kind of expressed herdoubts that he was in fact one. She said I have no clue whatsoever. Youwould like to be hopeful and that's all she wrote. That's all she said well,iy've not been able to find any articles confirming whether or not theDA results have come back and trust me I looked. I would assume that since the detectivestated it would take about three months that they've gotten the results backand it's probably not one. I would assume they would have released that itwas him by now. So I guess we'll get into some theories. I mean there.Aren't that many in this case- and I think it's pretty obvious- that they'reall going to revolve oun one person, yes absolutely or a boyfriend t never brought into it. I know it'svery sketchy to me that we never hear anything about the boyfriends, becausethat's you would always look at aelement of familiar. You know relatives and people around him so interesting, since it has been all thatconfirmes that tone never entered them all that day, like I just said, theonly theories in this case do revolve round Duana. I do want to point outreally quick, though, that, as far as we know, investigators have no evidencethat Dana brought any physical harm to her son and that everyone is innocentuntil proven guilty. So I'm simply stating theories, I'm not accusingDwana of any foul play, regardless of what I may personally think. May I dust ask: Did they ever searchher car? You know or search the home for blood or anything like that before theyjust passed her by and did not pursue anything. I'm just flaergasted yeah,there's, actually not a lot of information out there on what the investigation has been exactly.They did report just that they did extensive searches, so I would assumethat they did. I would hope that they did. You would think that they seem like a very comfitent policeforce. You would think they wouldn't just not search the home or search anypieces of property that Dano might have owns, but I can't confirm that for sure,but hopefully they did so. The first theory is that dwant ta either sold orgave her son to another family to raise. This is what locals in Levonia seem tothink happend. It's the local rumor going around. It's also rumored thather boyfriend at the time did not want children. So what locals are saying is that theythink she gave him away to appease this mystery boyfriend that we don't knowanything about Uppese to just allowing the father to raise them. Yeah. I didn't see any animositybetween Duana and Zackery who's, the father. When I looked at this, I didsee that when Zakhary arrived at the mall that day, he did seem particularlyangry at Doana, very much blaming her for what had happened, but that couldjust be a father angry that his son was missing, not owcould. You not keep your eyes M. Yeah. Second Theory is that an accident mighthave occurred that resulted in wons death, so maybe, instead of alertingpolice or medical personnel want to chose to get rid of the body and stagedisappearance. Duana was a young Africanamerican mother in a largelywhite city as weve established. So if an accident had occurred, maybe shefelt that she wouldn't have been believed yeah. I can understand thatsure, and depending on what...

...experience she's already had with thepolice, true taeing sense, not excaseable makes sense, and the final theory that I have you'rewelcome to put forth more. If you have any, is that this is the one I most hope is not true.Duana or someone in her life might have intentionally ended the life ofLittledswan. If this is what happened, it is theorized. Obviously, that wantto somehow disposed of a body in a place that is yet to be found. Thepolice did very very extensively search, Lavonia and the surrounding areas thatwas documented. So I would think that if he was there they would have found him,but we never know. I mean with the case that I did last week, Ganon Stouk, hewent missing in Colorado and his body was found all the way in Florida andthe stepmom had very little time to get the body there. So it's very mpossiblethat he could have been placed hundreds of miles away and o Ligd wats that casethe Gaman stylen January, beginning of this year. Okay, there's a tingdifference, though ind even you know technology, of course, but the numberof cameras that are on the road and nd in our life today versus one thousandnine hundred and ninety four ior in the s period. You know because we're beingtracped a whole lot more into thase world than we wer back. Then it wasjust beginning at that time, so it could be harder to see if she, as onyou know the major highway leading to some place else, and we know that shewas never detained, so she am sure I could have had time to drive to somefar away place. She had this mystery boyfriend that probably could have doneit or sorry any number of family members and friends. Again, I'm notdefinitively saying that. That's what happens, but it is very possible,unfortunately, did it reference either by the father for anything thaty foundor the grandmother how long it had been since they had seen but child. You know, no, it didn't itdidn't two weeks before. No, that is very interesting. It didnot say that anywhere. So just curious wow, it might be the optimist in me,but I tend to lean toward the theory that Duan was put into the care ofanother family or Guardian. I mean he was young enough at the time that hadsomeone else taken him in he likely would now have no memory of hisprevious life or previous family and, like I just said, the Levonia policeperformed extensive searches of the area. We mentioned that bones andbodies were founds. None of them belonging to Duan, thankfully so maybe someday he'll order, anancestry, Dnakit Thore, something yeah o that work. Youknow, how do you just all of a sudden, have a four year old boy. I know you did IMow on the day before and you don't have an adoption F, any adoption paverworkand you know how would that work? I just Idon't see how that could really process through correctly. I know in from the legal aspect that would bereally difficult today, but in one thousand nine hundred and ninety fourwould it have been hard had, they say, picked him up and then moves to acompletely different city where no one knew them. Couldn't they just they could until he got sick, you knowor something you had to take him to the hospital. What if she gave like hisfirst certificate and medical records and stuff like that culd do. That said, then the firstcertificate when reflect to the ter...

...plans and it's not them so know, that's not sure and what kind of person we dothat you know Youre taking a chance every day of yourlife D in fear of being found out and Oh wow cid you imagine that stress! No!No, I cannot do you have any other theories, any other thoughts you wantto add the boyfriend. I know that's so supicious teoii totally agree. It's sosuspicious to me that there is nothing about him. I know that she did not callhim and I just that's huge to me and then she calledher mom that bothers me before she called anybody else. She would call thepolice first. I mean you would find somebody first and then you know I knowI would calm my mom to or I would call you know, but you get help first. I know it's. It is interesting to me because I I mean I agree- that don never went tothe mall that day and that she wone hundred percent stage the disappearance,but it is interesting that she called her mom before alerting mall personnel,because if it had been the opposite, that would make a little bit more sensebut you're. So right, I didn't even think about that, but that is that'salmost like a. What do I do. I call like I have to get my mom on the picksame page as hm, so let me get her a call. She get on her way here, I'll feel much better. No,my mom is here bcaus she'll back me, my mom beliames anything. I say I have no doubt that the police dideverything they thought they possibly could. But I do question. Why, then, did you not? I mean there's, it seemslike there would be ample Reasonto, detain her into searchfurther and everyway into her life and see whatwas going on. I know it's interesting to me that that detective sergeant,Ronald Tig Tig, whatever you want to say, made her sound, so cooperative, becausewe know she lied about his disappearance. We know she lied it's onvideo, that she lied and especially Puting herself out and not passing toLin detector test and pointing herself out when it wasn't even her and he wantto generate from the you know the district attorney orsomething saying: There's not enough evidence. Oh I'm sureidence and we will,you know, get a Subpena but yeah, I'm sure, because, as far as weknow, I know that the police always know more than they release, butthey've been pretty open about the fact that they really don't have muchevidence in this case. So I'm sure it's just a matter of they know she lied,but they know nothing else. So what that you can't arrest someone on that, I wish syeu could okaybut. I think, ifwe're going to come in a crime you go to ANA songain and that's the perfectplace. I know it's so sad because these policeofficers really do seem to have tried their hardest and to this day, they'venever once closed the case or acted like it's gone cold at all. As far aswe know, they're still actively working this every single day. So just the factthat there is nothing, that's insane to me because Duana was twenty five at thetime of Duan's disappearance. She wasn't some mastermind criminal andagain we don't know the boyfriend. Maybe he was, but it's just insane tome that there is no evidence. Something happened to this little boy and she hasto know more and there's just nothing, absolutely faancy the him on the cameraanywhere.

They need to be pressuring her or theyshould oppression. Her a lot more yeah. If it was just eye witness testimonythat said no, she was alone. That would be like okay, that could not be superreliable, but he was not on any of video recordings. They had securityfootage in pretty much the entire mall. Definitely we know in the areas thatshe said to have been with Dwan and he is not seen on the video footage onetime. I cannot emphasize that enough. He is not at any point seen on thatsecurity footage. So that's just I know it's such a frustrating case becausewe've said this already, but you know she lied. You know she lied. Yeah.There seems Sten Oun in that it's like that's just a headshaker m. The thoughtthat keeps you up at night youyou could not have been there. What what that's so sad, I know and again please go on my instagram.It's at lock the door pod, I'm going to post a picture of him. He was such acute sweet, loving, looking little boy, oh my gosh, his smile is just you cantell he lit up a room. He looks so precious. This case is truly so so sad because shouldhave been sitting on Sanas lap, I mean something Mor Wote, Doneto Im. I know that's why I hope and pray thatshe gave him to someone that is now that R he would be older, now he'd bein his late S, so he might not be living with this familyanymore, but hopefully he was given to a family that gave him a loving, happylife. That's what I'm so praying happened, whose theory was that or is that justone one thought that was like? I said the security officer that Didnatinterview with True Crime Garage said that the locals seemed to be anagreement that she gave him away or sold him and Shen wer selling yourchild, oh especially, if the locals are right and it's just because herboyfriend didn't want kids because she's clearly not with that boyfriendanymore, so it didn't work out. So if that's what you did you did it fornothing which has been en happen. You know more thanWED like to think of yeah. We've seen plenty of case where the significantother was put before the children. Sadly, I know this case. This, like yousaid, is one that keeps me up. It's like what happened because I just can't see if there was a crime scenethat there's no evidence. Ter I mean. Maybe there is maybe the police havesomething we don't know about, but you would think if they did Dana would haveat least been detained or something- and she never was so. I could talkabout this one forever. I mean it just baffles me like I will say, though I don't want to sound like I'm, givingher props but good setup for the disappearance thing. That's verybelievable Yeso, maybe if she was fart enough to do that, she was smart enoughto clean up a crime scene. I know that the forensics they had back thenweren't as advanced as they are today. So T I don't know Kno. I just think of thankgone in with any any thing searching. You know.Checking the mantress in Sord, I don't know just doesn't make sense you Youe got. We got separated a couple of times youand I and it's funning, because one of them was at Christmas time and e local attraction. Jo, I vaguely do because Iremember if this is the right time. I remember a woman stayed with me e andshe saw me crying she did she did. You...

...were so smart. You went heading towardthe Security Bak somthing, yes, and I'm panic. You know say where ispainting wit and you know music saying I could shouldn't allow anyone to lagbehind us. We are all together and then you weren't there and none of us couldexplain how you weren't still just huddled in the center of us, but youdid. The brilliant thing. o went in search of that security guard to helpyou and we were able to find you. Oh my gosh. Iwas panicked as you can imagine, but then another time you were playing agame you and and Ian and grandma or shopping, and youdecided to hide in a clutbing rap. You were so little you be. You know thecircular clothing wrap. You would just you just fan into one, and you are soquiet you're, hiding like playing Pikaboo, but you nevercame out. You weren't saying anything Y MA I've got. She has to be here, shewas just here, and so we started looking through the racks and sureenough Li here she is. I don't remember that instance at I doremember doing that as a child. I'm still socking, it's just so cute how you Wer, even a ethought to do that a perfect hiding place for a child, but the differencebeing. If you whud had to call the police, they would have seen me on thesecurity cas I whave. Yes, there is a facebook pagethat is still up and very active called remembering Don Sims. Until I can'tconfirm this for sure it does appear that dwan's father Zachary Sims posts,often on this page and remembrance of his son, from what I can see, he'sposted for every birthday since facebook was born, and since this groupwas born, he is the first one to post updates and to ask people if they haveany clues or any theories or ideas or if they know anything at all. He has been the complete opposite ofDuana. He has never ever taken ha day off from his son's disappearance. Itseems and he stayed in the area. Yes, as far as I know, did he set the page up. You know, asopposed to the MOM, I'm sure the mom didn't set up the remembering Dwainpage ID. She there's not an adman section on the page, usually withfacebook pages you can see the owner. There is an email, though that appearsto have the name of a woman that doesn't seem to have any relation tothe family, so I don't think he set it up, but he is very active on it fromwhat I can gather. It does truly seem to be his father and he posts all thetime. So if you have any information regarding the disappearance of Duansins,you can contact the Lavonia police department at three hundre ND, three,four, two one, one, nine two zero like. If said, they are still looking at thiscase as much as they can. It has not gone cold. The Levonia PoliceDepartment is determined to find this little boy, so they could use all thehelp they can get.
