    Md. woman: I was abducted as a child, don't know who I am
    Monique Smith shares story of realization, lifelong pain

    A Baltimore woman who said she was abducted as a child by a person who raised her as her own shared her story with 11 News.
    Symbolie Monique Smith is a local missing children's advocate who helped lobby for the passing of the state's Missing Children's Act. She goes by Monique, but she said that she doesn't know what her real name is or even how old she is.

    Seems like an older story. I can't tell if she's actively seeking help in finding her bio family or just promoting her organization.

    Monique discovered that the woman who had raised her was not her biological mother and that she, in fact, may have been stolen from her mother in New York

    If Monique was Hispanic, we might have a match http://unsolvedmysteries.wikia.com/wiki/Marlene_Santana

    But she does not look a bit Hispanic

    I always wondered why somebody doesn't do something about that. Then I realized I was somebody.

    Website was published in 2013 -- anyone see an update? No event scheduled.

    Anyone find more information elsewhere?

    TY!

    I reached out to Monique and have asked her more questions. I especially am trying to find out how old or what year she was taken. Once I get more information I will post a story.

    I seem to remember reading about US hospitals taking footprints of newborn babies. Is this a universal practice? If so, why aren't the birth footprints of missing children in a database for comparison in later years?

    Thank you!

    Where & when, we need to know to do any helpful poking around.

    The, um, not-Mom's name would be a big help, not sure we're gonna get that.

    Thanks again!

    If she was abducted as a baby she may not know her exact age, but she must have a general idea. What year she started school? What year she graduated? I hope there is a way to give her a name and possibly some family.

    This reminds me a little of the Paul Fronczac story.

    Here's a possibility, too:
    https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/3351/9
    Jovonna Crawford - 1 year old/ CT
    Last seen 06/05/1981
    Circumstances: Jovonna was last seen at home with a family friend. The family friend reportedly gave Jovonna to an unidentified juvenile male who was to deliver Jovanna to an adult female relative. Jovonna has not been seen since.

    I wanna know when she lost those ever-important Two Front Teeth, bottom & top BTW; also when she reached adult height.

    And I want aaaaallll our WS nurses & medical professionals to use those dates to figure out age.

    Yes, school information, including anything her classroom teachers said about her maturity/immaturity and natural abilities.

    Dental information, too. I don't resemble my sister much at all, but the dentist said that he could tell we are sibs.

    We're the right crew to answer the questions once we learn where to start.
