Description

In the spring of 1982, 22-year-old Diana Avera was sent to Searcy Hospital, a mental health facility in southern Alabama. Diana was arrested for disorderly conduct in Foley, Alabama, where she lived. The details of her arrest are unknown because we only truly know what happened after her arrest. Diana had several mental health diagnoses, and the decision was made to send her to the mental health facility. Just three months later, around the beginning of August 1982, Diana allegedly escaped from the hospital and was never seen again. But is that really what happened 40 years ago in a case shrouded in secrets, abusive hospital practices, and unanswered questions? 

If you have any information about Diana’s disappearance, please call the Mobile County Sheriff’s Office at 251-574-8720.

What a devastating story. I hope that the unidentified graves are being looked into. They should be analyzed for DNA profiling. There could be other missing people that are in that grave site, including, possibly,Diana.  I am so sorry for this family. what a nightmare.
