    I read the family page and they have been looking for her, but I don't know if these pictures were matched up or not. I wish there was a page of who she isn't.
    This is a pic of one of her relatives, I think a nephew. Look at the nose:
    Do you know where this site might have moved to now that geocities is gone?

    TIA.

    What do you think of Melinda Karen Creech being a match for this girl?

    ....although I have always hoped that Melinda is alive and well out there somewhere.

    Her case number in NAMUS/IdentifyUS is 46. This UID is being compared to Sandra Kaye Butler, who also has a thread on here in the Cold Case section...see what you think about the possible match:

    The eye color for the UID is listed as hazel, otherwise there are a lot of similarities. It might be relatively easy to check-the UID has a full set of prints and dentals...I bet Melinda has a fingerprint card somewhere because of her juvie record.....

    The cheekbones are way off. Melinda has very prominent cheeks, which I don't think that even malnutrition would eliminate. The Jane Doe has a much narrower face, no cheekbone definition, and a pointier nose. Also, her hair has a reddish tint. Melinda's hair has no red at all.

    This Nevada Jane Doe is similar to Rhonda Stait (missing from New South Wales since 1979). Take a look at the photos side by side (I attached the url for both) and let me know if you guys think this is close. The height is different, so I could be way off...Jane Doe is listed as 5 ft 2 inches; R Stait is reported to be 5'8" when she disappeared. Can't find much specific dental on either.

    I suppose there's enough time for her to get to the US, but it seems strange. Wish we could see Rhonda's ears.

    I don't know why, but I keep coming across missing people from Australia that have similar features to this Henderson NV UID. Here is a second one that seems to match even better for height than R Stait. I dismissed her early on because of the hair coloring. However, in a separate search, I noted that the Henderson UID hair was initially identified as red. Take a look, see what you guys think...
    This young woman's name is Sherrlynn Mitchell (missing from Victoria; since 1973)

    It could be her. You can submit the missing Sherrlynn Leigh Mitchell as Henderson Nevada UID. Just asking the moderator for how to do it.

    There is a 'tips before submitting' sticky thread here in the UID forum. This is very helpful for you newbies new to submitting. If you are not comfortable submitting yourself there are a few seasoned WS'rs here who would most likely be very happy to submit for you, but will ask if you would like to do so yourself first.

    here is the sticky thread:

    Wish I knew how to put these pics side by side.

    http://www.missingkids.com/photograp...mpcc0005c1.jpg

    Here is a quick look at the stats for both of these young women.
    Heights: UID ~5'2"; SM is listed as 5'4"
    Age: UID:16-20; SM was 16 in 1973
    Dates: UID found in 1980; SM disappeared in 1973
    Locations: UID found in NV; SM from Victoria, Australia

    News articles from SM's family have her mom saying that Sherrlynn always spoke about traveling overseas. I know this is a stretch based on locations, but the face is so convincing to me.
    I will reach out to LE to see if S Mitchell has been ruled out for this UID.

    At first, I didn't get what you were seeing. But when I actually looked at them side-by-side, you can see that they do have very similar individual features.

    Their lips are identical. Their chins are about the same size. They both have reddish hair with a widow's peak hairline. Their noses are pretty close, although Sherrlynn's nose is slightly wider at the tip. You can't accurately compare face width or eye spacing because Sherrlynn is turned a little more to her left in the photo than AGJD is. But nevertheless, AGJD seems to have wider-set eyes. Even though her eyes are closed, I am envisioning that she has Bette Davis eyes. (Cliche Alert!)

    Overall, I don't think they are the same person. I tried superimposing the two photos over one another and couldnt get them to line up very well, even on a vertical plane. If you align their mouths, noses, and chins to each other, AGJD's eyes don't align well to Sherrlynn's eyes, and AGJD's Hairline sits slightly higher.

    But don't let me dissuade you from calling it in if you think you have a match.

    Per the Moderator's instruction, we can't put postmortems in open view, so I am putting the side-by-side at the link below with a warning.

    Warning: Postmortem photo at Link

    ETA: You can check the superimposed image test yourself by dragging the photos over one another at the above link.

    Hey CarlK90245,
    Really apprecaite you taking a close look at this. Your insight is great. Being that this is my first rodeo, I think the lips and the bone structure (shape of face, eye placement and bridge of nose) is why I think it is possible. Could be so off -- your feedback helps me sharpen my skills at face recognition.
    Thank you!
