    I was searching for other missing persons when I came across Michelle Crawford. She fits all the categories of the UID:

    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/1769dfok.html

    Michelle's vital in comparison:

    Vital Statistics

    * Estimated Age: 17-26 years old. Michelle was 21 when she went missing.
    * Approximate Height and Weight: 5'0" to 5'4" and unknown weight. Michelle's height is listed as: 5'3
    * Distinguishing Characteristics: Unknown hair and eye color.
    Race is believed to be White or Hispanic, or an admixture of both.
    * Medical: Open chest surgery as a child or adolescent and some
    deformities to the feet. She may have had to use crutches, wheelchair or a walker. Michelle had previous Heart Surgery
    * Dentals: Available. The decedent had extensive dental work.
    * DNA: Available.
    * Fingerprints: Not available.

    She seems to resemble the UID to me.

    LE has emailed me back and unfortunately Michelle Crawford is not a match. I was hopeful that this would help provide closure for her family if this was her. They compared mtDNA with the UID and Michelle's mother and they did not match. Michelle's name should be added to list of rule-outs.

    I found a new possible match for this UID and forwarded it on to LE.

    Even though some of the height estimate/age estimates are off, I think that they should check on the possibility that this might be Diane Brooks

    Diane went missing in 1995 from Austin, TX. She had previous open heart surgery. She was also suicidal at the time.

    I think she seems to resemble the UID.

    Renee Marie Williams had deformities of her feet and had multiple surgeries on them. It says she had a missing lower front tooth which is visible in one of her photos. I saw on Namus that there were lower teeth noted as "antemortem loss" but I'm not sure if they are the front or the back teeth. I don't know how to read dental charts....yet. Can anyone take a look to see if the tooth missing in her photo is noted in the Namus report?

    The dental chart indicates that all of the Jane Doe's lower-front teeth were present when found.

    The missing lower teeth were the front molars on both sides. There are photos of the teeth in the images section.

    But the bottom line is that if Rene Williams was missing any lower-front teeth, then she couldn't be this UID.

    Thank you. I did not see the photos of the teeth in the images section when I initially checked. Definitely not a match.

    Just a thought for future matches: one reason for having the front molars removed is to make space for very crowded teeth, especially if the person had a small lower jaw. I've had two different dentists tell me I "should have had that done" when I was a teenager. A younger missing person could have had that done after she was last seen and her photo would look quite different.

    More informaton

    The remains of the girl were found entombed purposely in brush and the positioning suggests she was dropped at the location. Her chest surgery also suggests early child cardiac congenital anomaly such as a ventricular septal defect or possibly Tetralogy of Fallot. The feet I feel suggest she had SLAP surgery which requires holes to be drilled into the calcaneus on both sides. This is done in people with some sort of drop foot such as in muscular dystrophy or possibly cerebral palsy. The surgery would allow ambulation but generally the person ends up in a wheelchair. She also has slight facial assymmetry.

    Adding Janelle Lynette Sanger-Garza for consideration here. I don't see an obvious overbite and the photograph is a close mouthed smile so no teeth to compare, plus her disappearance date is on the shorter end of the estimated date of death. However, she did walk with a limp (no reason given as to why), is Hispanic/Latina, age and height fits the broad range given, and may have traveled to Texas after her disappearance in Kentucky. She has no DNA on file for comparison per NamUs.

    added to the ruleouts:

    Shannon Arif 1977 Tennessee
    Brittanee Drexel 1991 South Carolina
    Hazel Klug 1962 Virginia
    Tiffany Sessions 1968 Florida

    In addition, LE said Michelle Crawford is ruled out on dentals, but she's not listed in the Namus file.
