Andrea D'Anne[1] Durham (born April 24, 1976) is a missing girl from Florida.

Durham is one of the remaining missing persons featured in the music video for Soul Asylum's song "Runaway Train."

Case

Andrea was last seen at her family's residence at Royale Apartments at the corner of Colonial Drive and Mayflower Avenue in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, which she shared with her mother and older sister. Her mother and sister left, asking her to vacuum while they were gone.

When Andrea's family returned to their residence two hours later, they found it unlocked with no indication of forced entry. Andrea's personal belongings were undisturbed inside. The vacuum cleaner was found standing upright in the living room.

The circumstances surrounding her disappearance remain unclear as there is very little evidence regarding her fate. Police originally considered her to be a runaway as she was reportedly unhappy due to changing her school and moving to a new apartment. Andrea had also been sentenced to community service for helping other children as a lookout while they stole money out of vehicles in a restaurant's parking lot. The charges against her have since been voided and she was reportedly not worried about the consequences for her role in the theft.

Recent assessments of the case include the possibility of a non-family abduction. Police have investigated the possibility that her disappearance was connected to Mark Riebe and William Alex Wells III, two men who are suspected of having kidnapped and murdered a woman in Santa Rosa, Florida, in 1989. Police haven't found a link between Andrea and these two suspects but the possibility hasn't been ruled out yet. Investigators believe Andrea remained in the area for a short time after she disappeared, but if she was on the streets she probably did not survive long.

Andrea attended Prior Middle School in 1990, and was a good student with many hobbies.
