  • Details of Disappearance
    Poorin was last seen on the evening of November 11, 1986 but the earliest missing persons report that can be found was filed in 1994. Porrin's school records show that she struggled academically and had a history of missing school. She missed 41 days of school when she was in seventh grade and 21 days of school in eighth grade before she disappeared in November. According to school records, the district withdrew her from school on Dec. 9, 1986, due to lack of attendance. Officials from the DuBois Area School District saidthey went to the Porrin's Maple Avenue home multiple times looking for her, but they were turned away.

    Her sister Jackie who was not living at home when Tamara disappeared has never given up looking for her and even placed an advertisement in the paper looking for her sister in 2010. Jackie says that Tamara was a habitual runaway. She said that her parents would immediately start searching for her. But she said that the last time around was different. "We weren't allowed to talk about her anymore. It was pretty much 'forget about her,'" Lingenfelter said.
