    I saw the case before also. The woman was supposedly murdered by a man who had killed several other women and confessed to her murder as well. The interesting thing was that this womans body was the only one that wasn't found, all his other victims were discovered. There is a theory that he lied, or that she somehow was alive when he dumped her body and wandered off with amnesia. It was a very interesting case and at the time I was planning to look up further info about it, but can't remember her name. It was very interesting that the family got a call that she was alive some 16 years later. If anyone has more on this I'd sure be interested to hear about it.

    If you have the spare time to go through it, TVTome.com lists just about every episode (with a short synopsis) of every show ever seen in the US (including Unsolved Mysteries). If you can find the episode#, I can get you more details...

    LA - Mary Ann Perez, 33, Chalmette, 25 Mar 1976

    The Doe Network:
    Case File 2808DFLA

    Missing Since: March 25, 1976 from Chalmette, St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana
    Classification: Endangered Missing


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Vital Statistics

    •Date Of Birth: 1943 (estimated)
    •Age at Time of Disappearance: 33 years old
    •Height and Weight at Time of Disappearance: 5'4"; 108 lbs.
    •Distinguishing Characteristics: White female. Reddish-brown hair; blue eyes.
    •Dentals: Not Available
    •DNA: Not Available


    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Circumstances of Disappearance:
    On March 25, 1976, Mary Ann Perez of Chalmette, Louisiana, went out with a girlfriend and left her teen-aged daughter to babysit the younger children.
    She told her daughter that she would be calling to check on the children about 10:00-11:00PM. First, Mary Ann called, stating that she was OK and that she would be home shortly. Later, a woman who identified herself as "Dorothy" called, to report that Mary Ann was having car trouble. Mary Ann's family did not know who Dorothy was and was concerned because Mary Ann's car was practically new.

    Mary Ann never called and never came home. Her family soon discovered that she had gone to meet her friend at a country-western club on the outskirts of New Orleans.

    The next morning, police found Mary Ann's car parked in front of the club, but saw no evidence of car trouble. Three days later, Mary Ann's purse was found in Lake Pontchartrain, ten miles away. It had been weighted down by a brick. But there was no trace of Mary Ann Perez.

    Nine years after Mary Ann's disappearance, a convicted killer confessed to abducting and killing Mary Ann. According to his statement, he and his wife dumped her body near the Louisiana/Mississippi state line and made no attempt to hide her body. An extensive search was conducted, but no body was recovered, even though all of their other victims had been found where he said they would be. The couple were never charged with Mary Ann's murder.

    Fifteen years after Mary Ann's disappearance, the family received a phone call from a woman stating she was Mary Ann's best friend, that Mary Ann was still alive but wasn't able to call herself, and that also she wouldn't be able to call back.

    The call gave hope to the Perez family that Mary Ann may still be alive, though they realize it may have been a prank call.

    The convicted killer is named "David Courtney". I didn't include his name because I was writing Admin to see if it was ok to name him. When I found out it was ok to name him, it was too late to edit my original post. Please read more at the Unsolved Mysteries link below.

    Well I believe the convicted killer when he said he dumped the body in an easy to find place because his other statements were true. I bet that an animal took the body away and that is what has made it harder to locate.

    I think the phone call was a prank and the reason they received a call on the night of the disappearance about the car trouble was only because the culprits were buying more time as it would explain a late home arrival.

    This case is now in NamUs : https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/14115

    Several sleuthers have brought to my attention that they think Perez could be Jane Doe 96-1207, aka "Mary Anderson."

    There are some facial similarities, but the height is off and Perez had children. "Mary Anderson," from the ME report, stated she never had children.

    Let me know what you all think.
