    I also submitted Jan Cotta as a possible match for this uid last year, and have not had any word back.

    Diane Sue Gilchrist? She wasn't known to be pregnant, but you never know what happened after she ran away.

    I think this is probably a teen who wasn't reported missing. She might have ran away because her parents were not happy with the pregnancy. So it could be that her family never reported her missing.

    Two with just enough ambiguity to them to be possibilities, but I think it's more likely that italianbella is right. This girl was probably never reported missing.

    Could be, but it also could be that she has been reported missing, but whatever county she was reported missing in hasn't entered all their old cases into Namus yet.

    Enough unknowns to suggest Roxanne Sims as well, the exact date she went missing isn't even known for sure http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/s/sims_roxanne.html.

    The wooden platform sandals always made me think that they got the date wrong and she was Swamp Mountain Jane Doe

    I don't know. If I had to make an educated guess I think there's a good possibility SMJD could be Niki Britten. I also think Roxanne Sims is a strong potential candidate for Fly Creek Jane Doe.

    A bit off topic by now, but the main reason I doubt that Roxanne is SMJD is because when she was found (July 1976) she likely had been deceased at the site for a number of years; possibly as many as ten. Even if the last known contact with her was off by a year or two when it was reported in 1977, it seems unlikely it could be that far off.

    I'm wondering about the forested area where she was found, is it a popular one for hiking/other outdoor activities or is it a spot that only locals would know and make use of? Union County (as well as most of eastern Oregon in general) doesn't seem to have as much going on compared to other parts farther west; even if you're just passing through to go somewhere else, it seems like an odd place to end up. Finley Creek is approximately 20 miles north from La Grande, the closest big city with about 13,000 people today and probably less at that time. The other nearby towns have only a couple hundred people each. If she was from that area and had been reported she definitely wouldn't still be a Doe, as there probably aren't many pregnant girls of that age and description that go missing from a fairly small community at the same time. I just can't shake the feeling that this is an unreported missing local girl.
