    Please also consider when sleuthing that her name may have been spelled Lori Sibrel - I am pretty sure that at least the surname spelling is Sibrel.

    I think so too Sunny. I don't have newspapers.com account access but I found the original missing notice for Lori here: https://www.newspapers.com/newspage/112174469/

    Here's what I can see from the OCR text there:

    Thee newspaper article says "light brown hair" Doe network says "strawberry blonde" Perhaps they consider it the same thing? I wouldn't think so

    His identity today is a mystery, Do you know who Barnacle Bill is?

    Most schools keep their yearbooks. I know my high School had them all locked away, but we got to see them once. Would it be out of line to contact the school and ask about it?

    Definitely not the same thing but I really think some people don't know the what different hair colors are called. I have seen people described as having "blonde" hair when it looks more like a light brown.

    Looked up Sibrel's in TN and there are a few... I found one that could possibly be mother. Living in Franklin, in her 80's. It also has the spelling Sibriel possible as last name.

    FYI, I have submitted Laurie/Lori as a possible match for 'El Dorado Jane Doe' (http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...10-July-1991-2) based on Gardener's sleuthing.

    Over on that thread someone tried to find LS's yearbook pic but the highschool didn't include pics of her class that year and I think they couldn't find her junior high school on classmates.com to check there

    Further to my latest comment - I don't think it would be out of line at all to contact the junior high and ask them. I'm sure it'd be of great value not just to this thread but to add to her Namus profile etc.

    I had a reply back from Namus that just said "Thank you for this information. We will intake this as a lead and forward it to the investigating agencies." So I guess if I don't hear anything more then we just keep an eye on EDJD's Namus to see if LS gets added as a rule out.

    You all have got to excuse me... I am terrible at math and dates. If she were 15 in 1978 and i'm assuming in.... 9th grade? or 8th grade? Then her graduating class would have been 1981 or 1982? Trying to find a page on facebook for her would-be graduating class.

    Her DOB is 1 Jan 1962 so actually she would have been 16, almost 17, when she disappeared in Nov 1978. I wonder why it's reported that she was only 15? That's odd right? If she was in 10th grade at age 16 (going on 17) that would mean she'd been held back? One of the facts in the reported details must be wrong - either her age, her DOB or the date of disappearance. Wonder which it is.

    I would have thought her graduating year may have been as early as 1980 based on her DOB but then if she'd been held back it could be 81 or 82.

    I wonder why there's so many inconsistencies. Wrong hair color, wrong age... and barely any info out there on her! Could this be a.... fake missing persons case or something? There's facebook groups for the graduating class of 80 and 81. I tried joining but they probably won't accept me, maybe some of you want to try? I've thought about contacting the school but Im just a bit nervous, haha
