    Here's a new addition to NamUs:

    Greta Laura Riles
    https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/19128/0



    * Timeline: LKA June 21, 1991 - Within estimated postmortem interval (1990-1992)
    * Location LKA: Tulsa OK - Same City where UID was found.
    * Age: 22 to 23 - In the middle of UID's estimated age range (18 to 26)
    * Height: 62" (5 feet 2 inches), shorter than height estimate (5'4" to 5'6")
    * Resemblance: She has a very similar facial shape.


    The one negative is height. However, I've seen enough botched height estimates that I don't think this is too much of a negative, considering that everything else seems in-line.

    CarlK, did you submit this one or hear back on it? I thought the two profiles were worth looking into so curious how it panned out. Thanks!

    Depending on lab backup, it could be years.

    Authorities identify woman's remains found 25 years ago near Mohawk Park

    http://www.tulsaworld.com/news/crime...bb1cabfe3.html

    Twenty-five years after a hunter found a skull near Mohawk Park, authorities identified the remains as a woman who wasn't reported missing until a decade after her disappearance.

    Greta Riles, 22 or 23 years old at the time of her disappearance, was identified as the partial remains found in 1992 in the 5800 block of North Harvard Avenue, according to a news release from the Tulsa County Sheriff's Office.

    due to Riles's lifestyle, her family didn't report her missing until July 2012.

    Rest in peace, Greta. I'm glad you have your family back. My condolences to them.

    If anything, they would have put her on some kind of a "Fugitive" list. Families/friends probably wouldn't report someone missing if finding them means that they'd have to go to jail. That's probably why there are so many missing persons that aren't ever reported as missing.
