    Lekisha Allen went missing from Detroit a month earlier, in September 2015. She's 5'7" (exact) and 170 lbs (within 10 lbs.) The photo shows probable pierced ears. Differences in hair and grooming could be explained by a month on the streets. Resemblance? I'm bad at that, but here's a side by side.\

    Lekisha is said to be bipolar and schizophrenic, and she had a caretaker.

    The main thing that gives me pause is that Lekisha is described as having a missing finger, which is not mentioned for the UID and seems like a pretty major thing to leave out.

    What do you think?

    She looks like a good possibility.

    Wonder if this could be Monica Boyce?

    Missing from the Bronx earlier in the year. Height and weight are almost perfect match.

    Doesn't look like they have any way to rule either or? Since she only went missing a year ago it must be something they could follow up if you send it in.

    The NamUs page has been taken down. I am trying to find out if they were identified.

    It doesn't appear to be any of the women suggested in this thread, and I can't find that an announcement was made.
