MP of the week: Andrea Durham

This week’s featured missing person is Andrea D’Anne Durham, a 13-year-old girl who disappeared from Fort Walton Beach, Florida on February 1, 1990.

She was considered a runaway at the time, and perhaps that’s actually what happened, but she’s been missing for 28 years now — more than twice as long as she had been alive before. And if she did run away she did so without taking her purse, makeup or extra clothes.

I’ve got Andrea’s mom’s phone number listed as well as law enforcement for a contact.

    That’s an intrestting comment in regards to Andea’s case. Off course Spock was very laid back for his background. Andre was both a lookout and nice kid at the same time. I wonder if la enforcement actually visited her home, to make a visual inspection. It appears odd to leave all clothes behind if running away.

    I wonder if they looked at any of her fellow associates involved in stealing from the cars. Who knows what they graduated into. Also I assume her parents were divorced, since their is no mention of her father. Just mom and a sister leaving her behind like Cinderella to vacuum.

    I Was a childhood friend of Andrea and I still know her mother today. Andrea DID NOT RUNAWAY!!!! She would not of done that to her mother. Her older sister had ran away out of rebellion several months prior. Me and Andrea talked about how upset her mother was and she could not understand why her sister would put their mother threw that. Both Andrea and her older sister had a close bond with mother! I told the police and her mother this back in 1990 and still believe today that someone kidnapped her. A few months prior to her disappearance we had an issue with a man in a gray mustang following us home from school. He was watching us and made us both feel very uncomfortable. After seeing him a few times around the school I watched to see if he was picking up another child. He never did and seemed more interested in me and Andrea. One day he was extremely close to were we walked behind the school parked in the woods with his window down like he was trying to talk to us. I became very defensive and started yelling at him to stop watching us and looking at us like a fucking a perv. His face was emotionless and he just nodded his head at me. Then we saw him coming down the road after us. We took off running to a local store near by were my older sister worked. We asked for help and told my sister what had happened. She dropped us off and picked us up from school for several weeks afterwards. During the weeks after our encounter with that weird man we would find instant Polaroid pictures of a man half naked and sometimes naked out in the parking lot in front of Andreas apartment. I lived in the complex next door and we often hung out together until I moved to another town 45 mins away. Within a matter of weeks after I moved Andrea disappeared. I have always wondered if that guy in the mustang had something to do with her going missing? I think if Andrea had ran away that she would of at least stayed in touch with her friends like most runaway do. But none of our friends ever heard from her again… I went around to all our friends and people that we went to school with asking if anyone had talked to her, if anyone had saw her or knew anything. The only thing I heard about after she disappeared was some high school kids had been running around in some old trailers and found a pair of shoes similar to a pair Andrea had. A police officer talked to me and our other friends about it. We never knew Andrea to hang out there or around the strange (satanic/ gothic) guys who found the shoes in the abandoned trailers. I hope that somehow she is still alive out there and perhaps she will be able to one day reach out to her mother or sister!!! But I know the reality is that she is probably gone and one day she will be found and given a proper final resting place! The town we lived in is a tourist and military town. There were a lot of people who were just vacationing or stationed on one of the bases temporarily that might of been of concern. I think a person like that had something to do with disappears. The weird guy I mentioned earlier had military base stickers on his windshield for the local Air Force base. He was young athletic and had short hair like a military man would. Its a parents worse nightmare to have something like this happen!!! And to think what my dear sweet friend Andrea might of had to endure is unthinkable!!! I hope the person who took her has gotten punished by charma somehow and that we someday have the answers and closure to what happened to Andrea!!! She was a great childhood friend, a good kid for the most part and had goals for her future like becoming a competitive tennis player and attending college. She was beautiful, smart and had a bright future!!!
