Saw this in the news from yesterday.
The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children has updated an age-progressed photo of a missing La Crosse woman.
The picture itself can be found on that link, as well as her NCMEC page

A little bit of a longer article
Here's one also stating she has one blue and one green eye although that's inconsistent with other descriptions.

Her Charley Project was updated today: Madeline Edman - Charley Project
Also, a Facebook page for her: Have You Seen Madi Edman? What Happened To Her? - Facebook
I noticed in the comments of one of the news articles above, someone asked about this unidentified:
Jane Doe 2008 - NCMEC
Fond Du Lac Wisconsin Jane Doe 2008 - Can You Identify Me?
The Jane Doe was found 172 miles from the laundromat where Madeline went missing.
To me, there's a strong resemblance....Always remembering the missing...

M86, I'm pretty sure I have seen Madeline on the rule out list for that Jane Doe actually, but thanks for the insight.

Madeline's family, or at least her grandmother, do not believe she is missing:
"Her sister's friends and other people I know have seen her, like at Wal-Mart or at the doctor's office, and they told me that they seen her,” said Madeline’s grandmother, Maureen Edman.
You'd think that one of these people who had supposedly seen Madeline would have approached her and spoken with her. I know I would if I saw a friend who had been missing for eight years just wandering around Wal-Mart.
Madeline's Charley Project page doesn't have much information. For instance, did Madeline take anything with her such as clothes or treasured possessions? Did Madeline have savings from a part-time job? After all, how does a 15 year old girl just start a new life like that with nothing?
And can anybody verify that Madeline ever reached her home?
What about activity on her social security number? Madeline would be 24 years old now. She has to be living off something.

It really bothers me that Ive never really heard much about Madeline before.
Ive lived 45 min south of La Cross and grew up about an hour north. And never not once have I heard anything about her on the news. Seen pictures or anything.
Its like its no big deal that a 15 year old girl just up and left never to been seen from again. But this a huge deal. Something happen to her and the trail is ice cold. She was 15 and in 9 years she was never once picked up by police..not even a driving ticket? Never got an Id drivers license? Anything? No money...nothing? Just up and left. People say theyve seen her? And no one really seems to care
This is my neck of the woods and it bothers me deeply a 15 year old girl has been missing years and only people who seach for it know about it.

"10 years later, La Crosse Police still puzzled by girl's disappearance"
In the beginning of the investigation, there were reports of her still being in the area.
However, all of those leads have gone cold leaving police with unanswered questions.

I just heard of this case today myself. It really bothers me too that I had never heard of this 15 year old girl going missing before today. I actually live IN La Crosse and have my whole life. And I don't live under a rock.

Here you live there and havent. Thats crazy.
I don't know who to blame but there is something wrong with this. Even if her family didn't do much she was 15! A child.
