    "Sarah Skunk was one of 11 siblings, and at 43 she was seen for the last time by a friend in Thunder Bay, Ontario in 1995. The Nishnawbe Aski Police Service is investigating the missing persons file and took DNA samples from Sarah’s mother in September 2014 to compare with that of a body that was discovered on the West Coast of the United States in 1996."


    "After getting into trouble in the community she lived in, she was taken away from the reserve to attend training school in Toronto in the late ‘60s.

    Maryanne Skunk, Sarah’s sister, remembers that day well.

    “I remember crying because they were taking her away,” she said, recalling that last time Sarah ever lived at home.

    “I think it was just the damage that was done to her... the way we were raised. I think that’s why she never wanted to come home.”

    The family last saw Sarah when she returned home for a visit in the mid* 1980s. The last place she was reportedly sighted was in Thunder Bay, Ont. in 1995.

    A friend of the family who had seen her told the Skunks that Sarah was bound for the West Coast.

    The family, along with two investigators from the Nishnawbe Aski Police Service, have followed up on leads that have surfaced over the years of mystery, but Sarah has yet to be found."


    " Sarah’s mother is 90* years *old. She can’t walk anymore, and Maryanne says she often speaks about how her time to go is coming.

    But still, the mother waits, keeping an eye open for her child.

    “A few times I’ve seen her sitting by the window looking out, and that’s what she brings up,” Melissa said.

    “Sometimes I actually really believe that’s something that’s keeping her... that in itself is really heartbreaking to see.”

    Wondering if this could be the uid female remains found in Oregon, that was being compared to Sarah, if not, perhaps she should be, imo.
    The dates are off, but then there seems to be a variation in the date that Sarah may have gone missing.

    "On Sept. 9, 1993, the body of a woman, between 30 and 40 years old, was found on the east bank of the Willamette River, south of the Burlington-Northern railroad bridge.

    Investigators said an autopsy determined she had drowned. The cause of death was determined, but not the manner of death. Detectives said there were suspicious circumstances surrounding the death.

    "The way her clothes were, the condition her clothes were in not what I would expect to see from someone who jumped into the water," said Terry Wagner, a cold case investigator.

    In 1993, there was no conclusion to the case, so the remains were cremated.

    While there is no DNA profile, Vance said there's still plenty of circumstantial information about the woman.

    They have dental records, two sketches of her face and a sketch of a silver ring with a distinctive roadrunner that the woman was wearing when she was found. They also know a bit about the woman's medical history."
