Details of Disappearance

Desiree Carroll was last seen on March 25th 1983 in Kosse, Texas. According to her mother, she dropped Desiree and her older sister off at the lane of their home in her pickup truck at 1:00 pm. The older sister walked up to the house and saw that Desiree was following the truck. She vanished and was never seen or heard from again.

Desiree’s home was located in a rural and heavily wooded area in 1983. Extensive searching of the area turned up no trace of the child. Her parents had been divorced by that time and their mother had custody of them. Their father regularly saw them. The last time he saw Desiree was two weeks prior to her disappearance. Desiree’s case remains unsolved and it’s presumed that she was abducted by a non family member soon after she was last seen.
