    2 people missing from within a couple miles or less from the area the skeletal remains where found;

    Sandra Prince http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...=sandra+prince

    Jennifer Marteliz http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...nifer+marteliz

    I have a feeling about Jennifer. If you look on a map of the crossroads she disappeared from 109th Ave/15th St. The remains where found exactly south of this point about 1 1/2 miles, straight down Rowlett Park Dr.https://www.google.com/maps/preview#...4!2i768!4f13.1

    Subscribed. This would be wonderful for Jennifer's family.

    A few more miles east brings to mind Gail Joiner, too.

    Do they know how old the bones are or if they are male or female yet?

    They're saying it's going to take time to find out. University of South Florida anthropologists are going to be examining them is what I read.

    I know they where digging in Pennsylvania in 2012 after a tip but found nothing. I'll have to google and see. They also found remains off 1-75 or I-275 a couple years ago and they where identified as a teen who was missing for years.

    Try the Hillsborough Co tag at the bottom. There are several UID listed, looks there are discussion threads for a few in that area.

    Rest in peace, Mr. Snipes.
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)
