    UK - East Sussex, WhtFem 361UFUK, 40-60, washed ashore, Mar'02

    Hi,

    I came across this site yesterday (registered in the past but haven't been on). I was looking through the missing persons/unidentified last night and I think there may be a possible match on a UK case.
    I have emailed the intelligence officer like the appeal requested but just wanted to put it forward on here. I have never done this type of thing before so any help/advice would be much appreciated

    Here's the links to the case:

    This looks good. Only thing that stands out to me is the three year gap between going missing and the UID body washing up. It means she would have had to have lived elsewhere for that time - possibly transient?

    I agree, the gap bothered me too but everything else seems to fit. She does have links to London area so not a million miles away really.....The more I look at it the more i am convinced.

    The drawing definitely has similarities to the photos of Ellen! It can't hurt to call it in?

    ETA - I am not sure if you've posted this in the right section? It's in identified and should maybe be moved to the main unidentified page?

    Well done Thinker I think this is a great match! I don't live too far from where she lived in Dublin but this is the first I'd ever heard about a missing person from there. I really hope this turns out to be her, great work

    Had this email a couple of days ago:

    Thank you for your contacting the Bureau and letting us know about the possible match. I can see why you think there is a possibility of the cases being linked. I will certainly investigate this and will get back to you with the outcome. This may take some time so please do not be concerned if you don't hear from me for a while.

    Thank you once again for your interest.

    Best wishes

    This lady is still listed on doe network but is not on the UK unidentified database. I have emailed them asking for any updates or if she was over looked when the site was built. Since Seaford is pretty close to me I'm just hoping its because they found her name.

    UK police seem to be really responsive on twitter and FB. Sussex police twitter is here.

    And I've just seen they have another missing man there.

    ETA: He has a thread now. From Worthing.
