    DNA sample available - not yet submitted. Would be nice to have this submitted somehow, so a comparison with Jennifer Faye Powers could be made. I'm going to e-mail Carrie Sutherland (Namus Regional Administrator for both cases) and ask how to have this done.

    That usually means that the LE agency has submitted the DNA for testing, but the lab hasn't finished processing it so it can be sent to CODIS or whatever database they use. Often it's a matter of waiting for paperwork.
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    looking at it on google earth, there seems to be tents along the tracks. I live near and industrial area with tracks and due to the insane cost of living, we have a huge homeless population and for some reason it is common to see tents along tracks. since her clothing was layered, she was possibly transient.

    That looks quite likely.

    No matter who it is, what a sad and lonely end. When I see UIDs who were most likely addicts found and then not identified for years (if ever) it breaks my heart. Suicide, overdose or exposure - not only did they probably feel they had no one, but often everyone's given up on them. I have a personal link to this as my partner has struggled with this very same addiction and his going missing for only three days years ago sparked my initial interest in MPs. Three days waiting was a hell I never want to relive and I can't imagine waiting indefinitely for years for someone to come home. I feel for both the addict and the family.
