    CA - Kathleen Edna Rodgers, 16, Oroville, 3 March 1973

    Just read a newspaper article about missing persons in Butte County, CA, and found the PDF link below, which lists quite a few MPs that I had not picked up from any other source. Am posting the ones I can't find a thread for on WS.

    (PDF file, scroll down to Page 2)

    Kathleen Rodgers left her home on March 3, 1973 after an argument with her stepmother. She was 16 years old with brown hair and green eyes, 5'2" tall and 130 pounds. She was wearing a blue coat, a green army shirt, a blue and white blouse, jeans, brown shoes, a watch, and two gold rings.

    Kathleen was seen around town for a brief time after leaving home, but LE suspects she met with foul play shortly afterward.

    I know that her weight is off and the distance is an issues, but I wonder if Ms. Rodgers has been compared with the unidentified young woman found in La Habra Heights, CA?

    That was my first thought seeing this picture! Has she been submitted for Cali? Something about the nose and the hair...

    I asked Nameless Helper as she has contact information for Cali. I always think it is best if one person acts as our contact to avoid overwhelming MEs. I wonder why it took so long to post on NamUs??

    This must be the girl LE were looking for when they dug up an abandoned property in Biggs a few years ago. I have no idea why, but they refused to release her name at the time and afaik she never appeared in any databases until recently, despite being reported missing so long ago.

    I think you're right. This is from 2012.

    Butte County authorities digging for body of missing Oroville girl

    EAST BIGGS The FBI and Chico State University's human remains experts are helping the Butte County Sheriff's Office dig for the body of a 15-year-old who has been missing since 1973. The sheriff's office received a tip that the girl's body might be buried near the foundation of a home that burned decades ago on Larkin and Lattin roads in East Biggs, Sgt. Jason Hail said today.
    "It wasn't until last year that we had something solid," Hail said.
    Investigators are not releasing the name of the girl who grew up in Oroville and was reportedly living at a group home in Gridley at the time of her disappearance, Lt. Al Smith said. She had previously been reported as a runaway.
    Kathleen has been missing for 42 years today.
