    Sometimes, cases take years to solve, like that of Sidonia Harmon, a 30-year-old Atlanta woman who, according to family members, had a crack problem and went missing July 9, 1991.

    This month, her daughter, Temeka Strozier, called Stribling, asking why her mother’s photo had been removed from the department’s missing persons’ website.

    It turns out Harmon’s remains had been found in March 1992 in a wooded area near Campbellton Road. But there was no apparent cause of death and the skeletal remains went unidentified until detectives obtained DNA samples from her family last year and matched them. Police told Harmon’s mother, but not her daughter.

    “I never let it go,” said Strozier, who, at 35, is now older than her mother was the last time they saw each other. “Now I know a little, not a lot. I’m looking for more information. She was found only five minutes from my grandmother’s home. My question is, why did it take so long?

    “It was part of my growing up, not knowing where my mom was and all this time she was in the hands of the Fulton County medical examiner,” said Strozier, who wants the homicide unit to take up the case.

    Do you have language questions or letters/documents that you'd like to have examined in order to determine the language background of the writer? I can help!

    Ms. Harmon's family (her mother) WAS notified immediately when preliminary DNA results were received in May 2011 from the FBI CODIS lab.

    I'm not sure what "...all this time..." is referring to, but Ms. Harmon's identity was not known until May 2011.

    IMO it's a long time from May to December for the daughter not to know that her mother was found. Is she not in contact with Sidonia's mother?
