Way back in the summer of 1988, David Jackson vanished from his home in Florida. Jackson was 24 years old and was a recently divorced father. Unfortunately, missing person cases like this occur far too often. Some of the time these people are found relatively quickly, while others remain missing for decades. And sadly, some are never found at all, or their bodies are discovered in gruesome circumstances.
There were many uncertainties surrounding the disappearance of Jackson, and the mystery has haunted his family for 28 years. However, the case was recently reopened and almost 30 years after he went missing, some breaks in the case were made.

It was in high school that David Jackson would meet Barbara Britton. Britton was a sophomore in Jackson’s senior year of 1982. She described him as the first love of her life and the two were inseparable throughout their time at school. As time went on, their love continued to grow.
David Jackson graduated in 1982 as expected and was excited to move on with his life, a life he wanted Britton to be a part of. In fact, a year after graduating, he married Barbara Britton. However, Barbara’s father was not very fond of the idea, but something happened that made it necessary to them.

Despite the fact that Barbara was still in high school, she was pregnant with David’s child. The relationship between the two families was rocky, but the child being born seemed to help things out, for a bit. Unfortunately, this didn’t last long as they filed for divorce less than 2 years after their marriage.
