    The bones I mentioned have been identified as Eli's now. It took 18 months.

    Does anyone know if they have the results of the test back. I can't find anything.

    I think they're still pending.

    Bumping...

    Does anyone know what the outcome of the DNA results were? If DNA was done in August of 2005, then what the heck??

    I've been wondering myself too, I always check back to see if there's been any updates but there hasn't. It's been a long time...

    The person who started this thread hasn't stopped into WS in a few years. I tried to see if Namus had Robin listed as a rule out and couldn't find this Jane listed at NaMus. Maybe someone should call the coroners office again. Either the DNA didn't come back yet, or she was ruled out. It would be nice to know either way. I think they look so much like a match I'd be really surprised if they weren't.

    If no one else would like to, I will call.

    Cubby,

    Why don't you call? You know what you are talking about and I would probably sound dumb if I called... Robin is still listed on The Charley Project. http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...nno_robin.html

    I re-submitted the information via email to the correct contact in PA, and left a message for Detective Thomas Powers in NJ.

    I asked if the two have been compared, and if so to please let me know if Ms. Trivisonno has been ruled out.

    Will follow up as I receive info.

    ETA: Corrected to say re-submitted. I included in my email, that it was not I who made the match, but rather someone who is no longer an active member here at WS.

    Since this was originally supposed to be compared in 2005, I can't help but wonder if it fell by the wayside to work on a more current case or cases. The sketches, and description of the barrette, size, and location are just too similiar to think another mixed Caucasian African American female went missing with the same info and also remains unidentified. Hope that makes sense.

    I don't want anyone to think I would take credit for finding this possible match, as it was not myself who found it.

    Cannot email either?

    FWIW, I ran into this too. Some toll free numbers do not work outside the state one is calling from. I found and called a non toll free number to submit the info.

    ETA: I have found that submitting to the person responsible for the John or Jane Doe tend to review and act on the information far quicker than the detective or persons responsible for working a cold missing persons case. Just a tip to add based on my experience.

    No answer back from my emails as of a few min ago.

    After I sent the emails, I looked further and found a newspaper article indicating the detectives and ME are aware of this potential match. (should have looked further before I sent off the emails.) The link to the article no longer works, and I am not sure if it is ok to link to the forum which has the article, so I will just summarize. (anyone reading should find the article easily by googling Robins name)

    It appears they were trying to get DNA from the skeletal remains back in 2005. I am unsure why dentals were not used, perhaps Robins dentals were unavailable. The article gave me the impression the DNA they had at the time was insufficient for some reason to accurately determine the match. What makes me incredibly sad, is this looks like a for sure match, but they just didn't have the DNA technology at the time? It breaks my heart the family is/has been waiting for a confirmation for so long.

    I can only hope my emails brought this back to the "top of the pile" and perhaps dna will be pulled again and tried for comparison again? It just makes me so sad to think this poor family has been waiting now for about 4-5 years for a confirmation. I just don't understand why it would take this long...... 4-5 years is an awfully long time to have a family 'on hold' so to speak. I hope something is happening and this potential match hasn't been forgotten.

    I found PA. State Troopers to be difficult to get info from on any of their cases.
