    CINDY KING
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/k/king_cindy.html

    Age (19) is within a year
    Distance (31.8 mi) works
    Nothing in the circumstances suggest she couldn't be on Holcomb Peak
    IMO she looks similar to the sketch

    However, she has a retainer (which doesn't necessarily rule her out if it's a removable retainer) and disappeared 10 months before the UID was found. But I still think she's a decent PM, considering the location.

    ETA: Cherry Greenman also looks like a good PM. Her age (20) is within two years of the UID's range and the timing (about 2 years between her disappearance and the UID's discovery) is consistent. She seems to have led a sort of transient lifestyle (she often hitchhiked from state to state) and her Charley profile says she could have traveled to Oregon. So the circumstances line up and distance can be accounted for.

    I think this is her....afro style wig was found with the body...just double checked and the dates of body found and Sims reported missing aren't close. Upon further inspection the DOE NETWORK has incorrect dates so this might be her..I notified Portland PD....waiting for call back

    To save everybody the trouble of following links -- Charley and Namus both say Roxanne went missing some time in 1977. Remains were found May 1978 with a PM interval of "years." So that fits.

    Oddly there's this case from Columbia County in 1970 that also involves an afro-style wig. http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...yle-wig-Feb-70

    I thought so at first too, but the counties are different and the case numbers are different.

    I meant to put 1257UFOR. http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/1257ufor.html
    I remember I had the other UID (the one with the afro wig) up on another tab, so I probably copied that link instead by accident. Sorry for the confusion; can a mod please fix the link in the OP?


    Modnote: Done

    At first I was sure that was a match but the girl with the wig was found 7 years before Roxanne disappeared

    Is there a link saying UP # 11638 had a wig too?

    It was the bad link that Carl fixed that was pointing to the wrong case.

    I'll swear it had the same sketches though. *cue twilight zone music*

    Two rule outs at NamUs
    • Ann Ellinwood - Oregon
    • Karen Lee - Oregon


    Any update on Roxanne Sims?


    What do you think about Martha Morrison missing in 1974 from Oregon compared to sketch with long hair?

    2 more rule outs added for this Jane Doe, making it total of 4, including Cindy King. Martha Morrison remains have been identified so that's ruling her out too.

    • Ann Ellinwood 1965 - Oregon
    • Rita Jolly 1955 - Oregon
    • Cindy King 1961 - Oregon
    • Karen Lee 1961 - Oregon
