A woman who disappeared as a baby in 1980 has been found alive and well.

Holly Marie disappeared along with her parents, Harold Dean Clouse and Tina Clouse, shortly after they moved to Texas from Florida.

The bodies of Holly Marie’s parents were identified in October 2021 after being found in Texas in 1981.

However, until recently, when she was found alive and positively identified in Oklahoma, there were no signs of baby Holly.

The family that raised Holly are not being treated as suspects in the murders of her parents.

According to the Houston Chronicle, Harold Dean’s mother, Donna Casasanta, has spent the last four decades searching for answers and was delighted this week when she received a call confirming Holly had been found.

“Finding Holly is a birthday present from heaven as we found her on Junior’s birthday,” Casasanta said in a statement released by a family spokeswoman to the Houston Chronicle.

“I have prayed for answers for more than 40 years and the Lord has revealed some of them.”

Casasanta regularly received letters from her son after he moved to Texas before they abruptly stopped in October 1980.

A few months later, she received an anonymous call from someone who said she had found the family’s car in California, with three women in white robes driving it, and was back in Donna, Florida.

One of the women, who called herself “Sister Susan,” told Donna that her son had joined a cult, had given up his possessions, and would sever all ties with his past, including his family.

“That was weird,” Donna told the Chronicle. “We got really scared and started searching and searching.”

In January 1981, a German shepherd found the remains of a human arm, prompting a police search of an area in Harris County, Texas.

Two bodies were found a week later, but it wasn’t until 40 years later, with improvements in technology and DNA databases, that they were identified as the Clouses. Dean Harold had been beaten to death and Tina strangled; both had been dead for some time when discovered.

The Texas Attorney General’s office took control of the case after Clouse’s remains were identified, revealing at a press conference that baby Holly was carried by two women dressed in white robes who claimed to be part of a church in Arizona had been deposed nomadic religious group.

“The Linn and Clouse families have sought answers regarding the well-being of the Clouses and their daughter Holly since they were last heard from in 1980,” the Texas Attorney’s Office said in a statement, the Houston Chronicle reported.

“Baby Holly was found alive and well and is now 42 years old. Holly has been informed of the identity of her birth parents and has been in touch with her extended birth family and they hope to meet in person soon.”

“Finding Holly is a birthday present from heaven as we found her at Junior [Dean Clouse’s] birthday,” Donna said through a family spokesman.

“I have prayed for answers for more than 40 years and the Lord has revealed some of them.”
