    Tips sought in 1979 disappearance of Spanaway girl

    There’s not much of a record of 16-year-old Andria Bailey’s disappearance from her grandmother’s Pierce County home about 35 years ago.

    Investigators aren’t sure of the year she went missing. Her mother reported her disappearance a decade after the fact.

    [snip]

    While her parents were away, Bailey was living with her grandmother in Spanaway, detectives believe. Her mother and father came back to Pierce County to search for her at the time, but didn’t report her as a missing person.

    It’s not clear why, Gates said.

    When she made the report, the mother contacted the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, not local police.

    It wasn’t until 1995 that the case reached King County via the missing children’s center.

    I'm starting to wonder if Andria is a possible match for 58UFNV:
    1. The age estimate is 15-25 years old
    2. The height and weight are similar
    3. Brown hair and brown eyes
    4. The exact date of Andria's disappearance is unknown; this leaves a big window of time

    This is a very saddening case, and I do wish there could have been more info. I honestly don't understand why a mother would wait a decade before reporting her kid missing?

    Yes, Andria does resemble 58UFNV, esp the decedent's side profile. We should start putting together something to submit

    58UFNV (aka "Sahara Sue") had no teeth, and wore full dentures. There is no mention that Andria had dentures, and the teeth in her photo don't look like dentures. There wasn't enough time between her date LKA and Sahara Sue's death to lose all of her teeth, and get fitted for dentures.

    And there is no mention of a birthmark on Sahara Sue's back either.

    Considering the case has very little information, it could be a possibility that she did have dentures, but for some reason unknown it wasn't listed on any missing persons websites. I think it is worth a try.

    Do you know what school she attended when she lived with her grandmother?

    Does anyone think this could be her? I've read some places that police are unclear of the year she went missing, and this Jane doe was found in 1978. Age, height and hair colour match unfortunately there is no photo to compare.

    I googled her name and a picture came up of someone on Twitter calling themselves A.B. who very much looks like this girl.

    According to namus, she has DNA. I think it's worth it for you to try to submit it, even if the dates are off... A date could be a mistake.

    I live relatively close to Spanaway. I am driving to Spanaway on either Saturday or Sunday, and I am pretty curious to find out more information on Andria's case. I'm curious to get acquainted with the specific area she disappeared from...there is so little information about her case, it is really frustrating. At the very least, I want to have a good sense of where she disappeared from. I am also curious as to who was interviewed about her...school friends, a boyfriend, her grandmother?

    (FWIW, from the very little info I know from Charley Project, I'm guessing she was discovered as a skeletal Jane Doe in Washington, Oregon, or north California).

    To clarify: I've known about Andria's case only for a couple months, when she was mentioned as a possible match for 1980 Walker County Jane Doe on Facebook. Even though I live fairly close to where she disappeared, I have never heard of her case (though, to be fair, Andria is older than my mother, and I've only lived in the area for 2 years). Even when long-term crimes are discussed in this area (Gary Ridgway is fresh in these folks' minds), I've never heard mention of Andria Bailey.

    Does anyone see a resemblance here? Missing Person 1980 Washington state.JPG That's a recently-released, updated, and computer-generated in-state Jane Doe found 151 miles from Spanaway in 1980. The Doe is believed to be between 13 - 18 and to have died in the late 1970s. The photo of Andria Bailey looks like a 12 year old to me, but I see some similarities.
