    Authorities say it bares a striking resemblance to a woman whose picture may be found in the national missing person’s database.

    Now, investigators must find out if the DNA sample from the Dothan Police Department coincides with the Darlington County Sheriff Department's sample

    The victim is described as a white female, between the ages of 19 and 35, and 100 to 130 pounds.
    Its interesting that in the article they have expanded the range from 19-27 to 19-35 and now have a weight range of 100-130 from the 120lbs previously reported.

    Cynthia Jean Young

    Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance

    # Missing Since: February, 1999 from Dothan, Alabama
    # Classification: Missing
    # Date Of Birth: June 14, 1966
    # Age: 33
    # Height: 5'4"
    # Weight: 150 lbs.
    # Hair Color: Brown
    # Eye Color: Hazel
    # Race: White
    # Gender: Female
    # Case Number: M641457664

    Details of Disappearance
    Cynthia Jean Young was last seen at her residence in Dothan, Alabama in February, 1999. She may be in the Carolinas. Her family has filed missing person reports with the Dothan Police Department, and to this date no contact has been made with her.

    ************************
    All the (revised) stats match. What is interesting is that Cynthia disappeared in February - if this is her where was she from the time she disappeared till July (when Jane Doe was estimated to have died).

    Note: There is no indication in the article that this is who they are talking about but the photo and stats are a close match.

    AL-Darlington officials have lead on body found

    Authorities have found a possible match in the search for the identity of a woman found dead along Interstate 20 nearly 6½ years ago, Darlington County Sheriff’s Lt. Robin Bryant said Thursday.

    They think a reconstruction of the missing woman’s skull bears some resemblances to the photograph of a Dothan, Ala., woman missing since 1999, Bryant said.

    The nose and chin features seem to have the most similarities, he said.

    The sheriff’s office is trying to access the Alabama woman’s dental records and is attempting to extract DNA from a tooth belonging to the unidentified woman, he said. They also hope to get the missing woman’s DNA and compare the two DNA samples.

    “We might have to go to the closest relative, but we’re trying to work all that out,” Bryant said.

    Authorities found the unidentified woman’s body Aug. 3, 2000, at a rest stop at mile marker 129 on I-20 near the Lee County line.

    The Bishopville Police Department originally received a 911 call about the body before discovering the body actually had been found in Darlington County.

    The caller, who identified himself only as a truck driver, left the scene before authorities arrived, Bryant said.

    Darlington County authorities found a woman’s body under a tree, badly decomposed and covered with pine straw. No items to identify the woman were found at the scene.

    A week later, the sheriff’s office determined the woman was a homicide victim.

    “Periodically, we get someone who e-mails us with a possible (lead) we need to look at” regarding the unidentified woman, Bryant said.

    In September 2000, a forensic artist with the State Law Enforcement Division created a facial reconstruction of the woman in hopes that someone might recognize her.

    Then-Darlington County Coroner Eldridge Norton held a funeral for her Jan. 5, 2001, in Hartsville’s Magnolia Cemetery.

    The woman is described as Caucasian and between the ages of 19 and 35 at the time of her death. She weighed between 100 and 130 pounds, authorities said, and has a slight body frame.

    There is a thread in the Cold Case forum about this Jane Doe and who I have speculated they are comparing her to.

    Not picking on you, Aussiegran, but just noting that when you (and others) post a story like this, PLEASE indicate the state from which it originates. I have no idea where Darlington, Bishopville, etc. are located. Even the link doesn't name the state.

    Thanks,

    Hoppy

    Cynthia Jean Young was located deceased.

    "Young was located deceased 2006.
    She had been missing since February 1999 from Dothan, Alabama."

    http://www.nampn.org/locatedn_z.html

    Obviously, Cynthia Young is not the Jane Doe found in Darlington County because this woman is still listed in the unidentified section on Doenetwork.

    Here's a girl from NC who somewhat resembles the uid.

    http://nampn.org/cases/lewis_christina.html

    The missing girl and where the uid was found are only about 5 hours apart.

    I like that possible match. Height and weight are right as well as time and location. Christina was 17 when she disappeared. The UID is estimated to be between 19 and 35. I don't think that this difference would disqualify Christina.
    My question is: Did the UID have a pierced tongue and navel? Her description doesn't mention that.
    For both Christina and the UID, DNA is available. I wonder if they have already been checked.

    I thought of that, too, but August in SC is very hot and humid. Maybe there wasn't much of her left?

    I think it is a potential match! I looked in Namus to see if the UID is listed and she is not. Sometimes in Namus they have a list of rule outs...

    I would submit it.

    I would submit it, too. Seems to be a good match.

    Mr. E, did you submit Christina as a possible match?

    Does anyone know if there is a "ruled out" list on this UID?

    To me, some of the reconstructions look strikingly like Brooke Leigh Henson.

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...on_brooke.html

    Date missing to date found is a bit over a year but they sure do resemble to me.
    God Grant me the serenity to accept those things which I cannot change, the strength to change those things which I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    There comes a point in your life when you realize who matters, who never did, who won't anymore, and who always will. So don't worry about people from your past; there's a reason why they didn't make it to your future.
