    Her full name is Ellen Louise McCollum Drake ( see http://oregonmissing.blogspot.co.uk/...nomah%20County ). Oddly this site says that the last record of her was 22 May 1970, but gives no more detail. It also has her DoB as 4 November 1949, making her 20 when she went missing. I would tend to take this information over NaMus as it is local and so specific. Unusually I can find no other info, even on Ancestry.

    There is speculation that she could be Josephine County, OR's "Annie" Doe, found in August 1971. Link to "Annie's" thread: http://www.websleuths.com/forums/sho...ood-Hwy-Aug-71. Annie's thread is quite long; Ellen's name comes into the picture first on page 26, where a poster, Ellen's Niece, asks for assistance trying to find her long missing Aunt. More information comes out on page 29 and Ellen begins to look more and more like a good potential candidate for this UID.

    Her name came into the picture before that - in May 2013, Deca brought her name up. She located Ellen McCollum's name on an obscure site for Oregon missing persons.

    Ellen's Niece was first tipped off to the possible connection when she googled her aunt's name and found the discussion that followed this post.

    Page 14 then with almost no info, then the others. 29 is where it really starts to come out.

    Here are two photos of Ellen:



    The B&W photo is of her when she was about 16. The wedding photo is more recent. Ellen's hair was naturally red, but she very frequently changed her hair color. She has it dyed black in the B&W photo.

    Ellen's neice stated her hair was frizzy and died often. The hair description on the above caught my eye. I wish we had more info on Ellen
