Watched the segment today, my first impression was that Tammy had some mental issues, not necessarily related to that party... 300 beauty pageants by the age of 16 - I mean c'mon.... one has to snap.... mother was an agent, who knows what kind of relationship they had between them..

IMO, this is a good reason why Tami would have left on her own. It seems like her mother forced her into the modeling business. At her age, she might have wanted to break away from mother.

Tammy did not have a twin, fraternal or otherwise. She does have several siblings, one of whom is named Debbie.

I still think Tammy was a victim of foul play and is no longer with us.

From everything I've read and heard about her life, I don't think it out of the realm of possibility for her to have run away at 16. People have outlined valid reasons for this. At that age she might have had reasons to want to get away from her mother. I've heard everything frm she was pregnant and didn't want her to find out, get away from the modeling, all kinds of things.

But none of these reasons stand up to her continuing to want to hide three decades later in her late 40's, even her mom is deceased now. She has siblings who want to know what happened to her. I see no reason in the world for her not to contact someone and let them know she is ok if for no other reason to tell them to stop looking.

Cases like these where someone goes missing for years and years, nine times out of ten they are dead. Most people don't just dissapear forever without telling anyone, as a minor Tammy might have had reasons for wanting to hide. Not as an adult in her late 40's with no criminal record. Just doesn't add up.

I agree X. Besides, whatever reason Tammy might have had for leaving on her own (if she did) she could still have met with foul play. I continue to look for her both as alive and deceased. Hers is truly a sad story.

Regarding a fraternal twin: I remember Debbie and thought I remembered Debbie telling me herself that they were fraternal twins, but I could be remembering that information incorrectly. However, I knew they were sisters since I knew Tami and since Debbie was on my softball team many years ago. You seem to know them as well. Do you know their (possible) cousin, Scott Stout?

Regarding johan183 and the relationship between Tami and her mom: They were living off of the money (what there was of it) that Tami made from her prize monies from pageants and appearances in movies ("Little Darlings", "Spring Break" and the "Spring Break" movie posters, etc.), revenues from Linda's agency (Galaxy Studios) and help from friends and family. I'm sure her mom put alot of pressure on Tami to do more and make more money. Tami, and the hope of her silver screen success, was their financial life-line. That is why I first thought that Tami probably ran away. However, I don't think she could have remained hidden this long, especially when her mom passed away. And, if Keith really dropped her off where he claimed to have, it's not likely that no one ever saw (locally recognizable) Tami at the Glass Bank in Cocoa Beach in broad daylight, 2 blocks from the beach, in an area that included a bank, grocery store, gas station, ABC Liquor, a pharmacy, Krystal restaurant, Brassy's Night Club, highway A1A and the Cocoa Isles subdivision in Cocoa Beach (FL).

She was relying on automatic responses, things she was taught and "programmed" to say in interviews. That especially happens alot when one's heart is no longer into, or no longer enjoys, what they are doing. Tami was NOT an air-head nor a drug addict.

Se was 18 when she disappeared, not 16.

I don't know anyone involved personally, but this is one of those cases that intrigues me. I believe Suzanne and Debbie are the twins.

Which probably wasn't much. I've read that entrance fees in pageants are often more than the prize money offered. Plus, there's all the other costs involved.

I knew someone years ago who was convinced that Tami had run away and was still very much alive with no desire to be found. I could see that happening, people have done it. But, like many of you, I find it difficult to believe that she would stay missing after her mother's passing. It seems that relationship was the most strained.

Suffer me asking a question I'm sure has been answered, though I can not find it now. Were Tami's sisters involved in her life? I thought I recalled one of them saying they didn't know about Tami until after she disappeared. I could be misremembering or confusing two different cases though.

I could have sworn the broadcast said 16. But its admittedly been a long time could be mistaken.

However it wouldn't change my opinion that she is dead. In fact if she was 18 her dissapearance makes even less sense, because as an adult all she had to do was just say goodbye, no reason for her to run away without telling anyone.

It was easy to be confused. The beginning of the broadcast shows her at 16 in a beauty pageant, then all the other events happened. I also believe the foul play theory. It doesn't make much sense that at 18 she would run off, especially if she was terrified. I have some doubts about the whole "ran off with barefeet somewhere downtown" story. If anything, wouldn't someone have seen her? Wouldn't a girl terrified of a man immediately go to a payphone and ask for a ride? Even if she didn't have any money, collect existed in the 1980s, right? I just wonder about that story.

I just recently watched Scarface for the first time and could not help but think of Tammy. Does anyone know where she is in the movie? Or was her part completely cut out?

As for the case, I find it so troubling. I read an article about an interview they'd had with her before she vanished and she sounded so kind. If only there could be answers.
