    Oh, this one. I think this is the one that might be Theresa Fischbach. There's no ruleouts on the UID's Namus.

    Fischbach's Namus is at: https://www.findthemissing.org/en/cases/13437

    Fischbach had a tattoo of a cross between her thumb and index finger on one hand or another. The UID had "a cross with three dots on web of left hand."

    The UP only has fingerprints, Fischbach has dentals and DNA, but no fingerprints, so comparison is going to be a nuisance.

    Height, last seen (May 1987 for Fischbach, the UID was found Sep 1987), hair colour match up. I wouldn't take the UID's age estimate seriously ("pre-50" with a minimum and maximum age of 40 - oh, really).

    Someone else mentions the coincidence in a Princess Blue thread: https://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...4#post10332644

    I just noticed: Fischbach's Namus entry says (on the case info screen) that she was last seen "May 24, 1987", but the circumstances screen says that her "family last heard from her in May 1986". Not sure which one is correct.

    Central Texas by way of SW La.
    Some conflicting info there. Also, Fischbach's first and last names spelled differently in different places. Weblink for Missing Texas 40 below. Question: If unidentified, how does LE know she had aliases?

    All of the above is just my opinion and I could be totally wrong at anytime.

    It seems that she was plenty identified - if identification means people recognizing her by looks, knowing a nickname, knowing where she worked/lived etc.
    What is missing is her legal information: the name she had on her birth certificate, her legal address or such.
