    KS - Sedgwick Co., BlkFem Skull, 18-25, on farm near Ninnescah River, Apr'11

    Sedgwick County property owners who were camping out near a creek on their land have found a human skull that may have been there for several years.

    An Anthropology professor from Wichita State University has been called out to perform a search of the area, and investigate the remains.

    Hinshaw says there are still trying to determine the gender and age of the individual, and how long the bones been there.

    and let's not forget Adam Hermann. If I recall correctly, his foster parents lived in more than one county that neighbors Sedgwick, and thought I read in the paper that they made reference to nobody ever will find him...? I will look for a link and return if I find it--otherwise, just consider it speculation...
    HOPING I CAN HELP
    but, what if .... ?

    Here is a local and better link for the information about this find. As far as the Adam H. case, the location is close to 30 miles or more away from any of the areas where his family had residences. Their residences were in Butler and Harvey counties to the north and east of Sedgwick county. This area is far into the southwest corner of Sedgwick county. All of these counties cover fairly large geographical areas. Also, depending on what is meant by "many years" in terms of the anthropologist being brought in......this is an area that was highly traveled by Native American groups up through the mid 1800's or later.

    Here is some additional info on this UID.
    An anthropologist at WSU has examined the skull and believes it could have been sitting on the creek bank for up to 15 years.

    "His preliminary findings show that it is a black female of African-American decent, from the ages of 18-25 years-old," McLaurian explained.

    no missing persons reports from the Wichita area match that description. the sheriff's department has contacted other law enforcement agencies across the Midwest, searching for any other clues.

    "Right now, we're trying to determine who the person is," McLaurian said. "That's why we're trying to reach out to the public once again for their help."

    The skull is consistent with that of an African-American woman between the ages of 16 and 22 who died one to 10 years previous to the 2011 discovery of the skull, Pollock said.

    A thought for those better at searching the doe sites than I am, but the great flood of 93 is only a couple of years out of the time frame, so checking anywhere northerly along the Mississippi, Missouri or their major tributaries might be reasonable.

    This appears to be roughly where she was found: http://goo.gl/maps/nE6n3

    "west of Viola, in the 10000 block of South 343rd Street West"
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    From December 2015:

    http://www.kansas.com/news/local/cri...e51696320.html

    Based on Jane Doe’s skull, the FBI came up with a clay composite of what she look liked in the hope that someone might recognize her. Skeletal remains showed she was a black female. Her remains were found April 29, 2011, at 10000 S. 343rd St. West, on a farm near the Ninnescah River. Authorities publicized a photograph of her composite and got some tips.

    “But those all went cold,” Pollock said.
