    Laura Alber??

    She's a little tall, but I do see a resemblance. Also, we do shrink a little when we age, right? She has been missing/homeless since 1990. The circumstances, location, would seem to make sense. The age is slightly older.

    I definitely see the resemblance. Especially from the side view...

    I think she's a good possible. 15 years is definitely a long enough time for her teeth to all go.

    I don't know that I've ever read such a graphic description of dental decay. my teeth literally hurt reading this. I can't imagine how much pain that must have caused, unless the deceased was so drugged out to obliterate the pain.

    whether this is Laurie or not they won't know. Laurie had no dental or DNA, the UID had almost no teeth left and no DNA results yet.

    in short, there is nothing for them to compare.

    Whenever I hear of such bad teeth I always jump to the conclusion of a meth user. Its like living with 5x the speed of normal aging.....

    It says DNA sample is available, not yet submitted. Perhaps if there is a possibility of a match they will expedite? The possibility of DNA on the UID side gives me hope.

    I imagine prolonged homelessness could make it difficult to maintain good dental hygiene. Most shelters can give out things like toothpaste and toothbrushes, but when the body is malnourished, that can impact dental health too.

    I know the UID has DNA tests pending. the MP has no DNA sample so whether they expedite the UID or not there is no DNA for this MP.

    Yes, but it doesn't say whether they have nucDNA or mtDNA. If they have mtDNA, they can get DNA from a family member to compare. I do realize that all of this depends on if there is a family member around and how motivated they are to solve this case if there is....all we can do is try.

    Laura now has DNA available however the UID still does not, this seems to be taking a long time to be submitted?

    Hi ya everybody,

    I came across this case and wonder if it could be by any chance Jeanine Lee Warner, missing about 35 days prior? I can't find any other picture than the one with the head piece, which is a shame and no smiling picture to find out the state of her teeth, but hey. What do you think?

    Unidentified is estimated to be 5'3", Jeanine Lee Warner is 5'11" - 6'00. Unidentified max age is 50, Jeanine disappeared when she was 55. Dates don't conflict and greying hair is a match though.
