CA - Sugar Pine Point, WhtFem (692UFCA), 35-45, Ring: "To Mac From PNB", Sep'79
This seems solvable to me

I just don't know enough about this websleuthing I guess. I was thinking that maybe 'Mac' was a mistake... and I found a DonaMae Bayerl who was 38 who went missing in 1979 from Wisconsin. Maybe the ring actually said 'To Mae from PNB'. But I don't know how to search further.... I can't find any information on DonaMae to see if she was ever married to someone with the initials PNB. ( I know, it's a longshot)
Are there tricks to sleuthing?

i always search http://theyaremissed.org and http://missingkids.com
because you can search by many different variables.
Next, I go to the state's missing persons' clearinghouse and search through there. Some state's sites are better than others, and sadly, some state's don't have a clearinghouse at all. Texas has an extensive one, but you can only search by last name and there is no way to filter it out anymore, which REALLY bugs me. I like to seach neighboring states too, in case they crossed state lines.
If I still don't see anything that catches my eye there, then I head on to the doe network and NAMPN websites and search by timeline.
Sadly though, you can do all the searching you want, but if the person hasn't been reported missing, it's hopeless.

This article is 13 years old, but contains details not found on DoeNet.
Twenty years later, murder victim remains unknown
Detective Don Atkinson said an autopsy of the woman's body revealed she died from asphyxiation and brain hemorrhaging. From tracks it appeared that the woman was chased and then her body dragged about 100 yards into the brush. She was found sprawled on her stomach, her features unrecognizable after the savage beating.
She was wearing blue jeans and a lavender pullover T-shirt. Wooden-soled sandals were found in the area. Her attacker had no interest in her jewelry. She was left with several rings, a watch, bracelet, necklace and her wedding band. The inscription inside read "To Mack from PNB."
- To MAC from PNB
- To Mac from PNB
- To Mack from PNB
This is definitely solvable... I think it just needs more exposure? Someone who loves and is missing this woman would instantly recognize the inscription on the ring, I think.
PS the peeps who found her sound a bit sketchy... hope they were thoroughly investigated and cleared.

It seems most likely if you were going to inscribe a ring it would be the same for both sets.
From Joe to Jane
From JS to JJ
From Joe Smith to Jane Jones
So I would guess it was
From MAC to PNB.
But, was this a wedding ring? Because I wouldn't imagine you would use initials like that. It could be a friendship ring or promise ring...

What about Patricia Barrett. Her initials could match the inscription https://www.findthemissing.org/en/ca...=circumstances

Maybe the middle letter is a nickname?

My thinking (though it might not be accurate) is that if she is wearing the ring, she would be "Mac" (the recipient), not PNB (the giver of the ring).
Mac isn't normally a woman's name, unless it is her initials "MAC".

Priscilla Anne Blevins
Missing since January 1, 1975 from Charlotte, Mecklenburg County, North Carolina.

Oh, oops. I did it too, picked a middle initial A.........

What about Madeline Babcock? No idea on a middle initial, or if she could have had a maiden name beginning with C. Maybe we can try to use Ancestry to find out.
Madeline was LKA living in California
Madeline disappeared in 68, long prior, but her disappearance could well have been voluntary.
Here is Madeline:

Charley project lists her maiden and previous married names, and none of them are "C"
s... (( Her middle name is A though...so unless there is any chance that MAC was actually MAP or MAL, I don't think this is her...
