Remains were found in a field in the vicinity of Highway 210, approxiamtely 11 east of Missouri City, Missouri.
The decedent is believed to have been 19 to 22 years of age at the time of her death. The race of the decedent was undetermined; she may have been Caucasian, African-American, or Bi-racial. She was believed to have brown hair, and was found with a hair comb.
Namus says she's 21-25, Doe network says she's 14-23 years old. The reconstructions look older. I wonder why they have only white reconstructions, if she could be white, biracial or black. Is she more likely to be white?`

If this is true, This would rule her out as being this Jane Doe, as the Jane Doe does have teeth.

Timeline ok, circumstances and demographics close. What really gets me is the photo of her upper incisisor...'Nothing clears up a case so much as stating it to another person.'

Here is the Namus page
I've tried enlarging Peggy's picture and I think that tooth is pushed right back instead of rotten, I can't really tell. It's a shame they don't say. It says partial skeletal remains. It would be difficult for Peggy Alt to get to partial skeletal remains in a month? It's also 240 miles (over 4 hours) away - although the circumstances of her disappearance make that very possible.
hypoplasias - this is probably the best clue we have - see google images...
There can't be that many younger women with teeth stained like that.
There is a Peggy Alt websleuths thread with people that actually knew her here: MO MO - Peggy Lynn Alt, 17, High Ridge, 2 March 1985 - Websleuths Crime Sleuthing Community - perhaps you could try and get more information on her teeth? It sounds to me like that 'date missing' could be estimated. If that is the case and that tooth is rotten then this is a good possibility.

Peggy would be a good possibility. I think it was said around the time of her disappearance that she went to the Kansas City area either with a boyfriend or to a family members house...I can't remember exactly..IIRC there were a few different stories as to where she went and with whom.

Submitted this UID as a possible match to Mary Frances Gregory, missing 1978 from Parry Sound, Ontario who traveled to the US with a male companion.

Shaunda Renne Green:
Vital Statistics at Time of Disappearance
Missing Since: October 15, 1983 from Ypsilanti, Michigan
Classification: Endangered Runaway
Date Of Birth: September 4, 1970
Age: 13 years old
Height and Weight: 5'7, 130 pounds
Distinguishing Characteristics: African-American female. Black hair, brown eyes. One of Shaunda's upper front teeth was chipped at the time of her 1983 disappearance. She has a surgical scar inside her navel.
Details of Disappearance
Shaunda disappeared from Ypsilanti, Michigan on October 15, 1983. She has a history of running away from her residence and authorities believe she left of her own accord. Her case remains unsolved.
*Height is only one inch off, but I'm taking that with a grain of salt because they are skeletal remains.
*Age is only one year off.
*Interesting facial resemblance.
*She did run away, apparently, but it would be hard for a 13-year-old to travel from Michigan to Missouri in a short period of time unless she traveled with an adult.

About three weeks ago, the bones were sent to a forensics program at the University of North Texas.
On February 20, 2015 the Clay County Sheriff’s Office Cold Case Squad announced that they had recently renewed their efforts into the investigation of a female homicide victim whose skeletal remains were discovered near Missouri City, Missouri on April 18, 1985 in a field near 210 Hwy and Boyer Road...
Detectives said they have chosen to resurrect the 1985 homicide cold case because of new technology which has been developed. They believe it will help solve this case. Last year detectives solved a 1990 cold case in a similar fashion.
