    Lori was living in a group home in Raleigh. She had been dealing with family and other issues and had been living out of her home off and on since the age of 14. She and her mother spoke on the phone and argued because Lori wanted to attend a party.

    Approximately 15 minutes later, the staff called her mother to let her know that Lori had gone.

    Two weeks later she called her Mom to let her know she was OK and that she wouldn't come to see her until she was 18. She said she was free of drugs and OK. It was the last time Lori and her mother would speak.

    Lori has never been seen or heard from again.

    Bumping this case up. There has been some discussion on these boards about Larry Gene Bell, who was convicted of (and later executed for) murdering a girl in NC in 1985. He is known to have murdered a 9 year-old girl as well two weeks later.

    Some consider Bell a suspect in the disappearance of Priscilla Blevins and Denise Porch of Charlotte, NC who both went missing in July of 1975. Bell lived very close to both girls.

    Is it possible that Cynthia Perry was another of his victims?

    Her photo.

    Are there any family contacts? I'm curious if the phone call was ever traced. Can they get more photos? I'm curious about the reported heart tattoo & if she in fact did have one.

    Is there anyone still looking at this missing person? I haven't been able to find anything .My interest in the Lori Erica Kennedy-Ruff/Unidentified woman from Longview Texas case has really got me curious. There is a pretty significant facial resemblance between the two! http://imgur.com/zCqQUuC
    The circumstances surrounding Cynthia "Lori" (Cynthia's nickname, her middle name is Lorraine) running away could lead to the resurfacing under a new identity that happened in the Lori Kennedy-Ruff situation.
    I would be interested to know if there is further information about Cynthia out there, aside from NAMUS, the Doe Network & on here. It doesn't appear that anyone looked for her once she disappeared, which again, fits right in with the complete absence of anyone looking for the person known as Lori Kennedy-Ruff. Here is Lori Kennedy-Ruffs websleuths- there is a surprising amount of information and speculation about who she is. http://www.websleuths.com/forums/for...Longview-Texas

    Hopefully someone is looking for this girl! Even if these women do not turn out to be the same person I would be interested to know more about her and look into her disappearance further.

    Her family has to be somewhere, NamUs has a DNA sample. Turn her in to FLEK's case

    There's a height discrepancy. FLEK was really tall and this Lori (Perry) was 5ft 5in.

    I thought that as well, except LEK listed height as 5'6" on one ID & it varied from each ID. Also, are we positive that CP height was accurate?

    Just bumping this up. I somehow googled my way to an amazing likeness of CP. In looking for potential relatives I found a woman currently living in Raleigh NC, working in real estate. Her name is even Cynthia Perry ______ (she's married now), initials are still CP. I don't know how much of this breadcrumb trail I've left here is allowable, but certainly no one should attempt to contact! It's really an incredible coincidence, but with recent cases I've seen with more than one person with the same name in a family...

    Hi Everyone. I follow the Valentine Jane Doe case, FL- Big Coppitt Key Doe 1991
    http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...16-25-Feb-1991

    I'm copying on this thread what I posted on the Valentine Jane Doe thread, that I wonder if Cynthia Perry may be a possible comparison match.

    I was reading about Lori Erica Ruff case on Reddit and someone mentioned the possibility of a comp between a missing person, Cynthia Lorraine Perry and Lori Erica Ruff. I checked Cynthia Perry's NamUs profile and it made me think of Valentine Jane Doe.
    I didn't think Perry was a good match with Ruff b/c of height difference.

    The reason I thought of the match to Valentine Jane Doe is b/c Perry's NamUs profile states that Perry had a tattoo of a heart on her upper left arm:
    https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/8281/0/

    which Valentine Jane Doe does too.
    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/49uffl.html

    The problem is that there is very little on Cynthia Perry.... including so few pictures.
    According to Doe Network:

    I find the likeness remarkable. The lips, the teeth, the eyes, the nose ...

    Hi Beezneez,
    You are right to question if CP's height was accurate, b/c it's solid that LEK was tall despite the discrepancy on the Idaho ID (the only one that states 5'6".

    This article plus the link below of the "gallery of evidence" on the LEK doe case is pretty definitive on her height:
    http://old.seattletimes.com/html/loc...anedoexml.html
    http://old.seattletimes.com/html/loc...eevidence.html

    Authorities state she was 5'10" and the majority of IDs for her do say either 5'10" or 5'11" (her passport application in the gallery has a handwritten 5'11"...who knows who wrote that... LEK?)
    her own husband said she was tall... etc.

    THat is the only thing holding me back from saying CP is LEK... If only there was more info on CP!

    One more thing, the Seattle Times article states that LEK , "She may have had a nose job at some point"
    http://old.seattletimes.com/html/loc...anedoexml.html

    CP ran away when she was 17... we don't know if CP had a nose job when she was a younger teen...

    If LEK did have a nose job... what did she look like before the procedure?
