    I wonder if anyone's considered Royal Russell Long for this case? I know he's the prime suspect in the case of two girls who disappeared from the Oklahoma State Fair, and he was convicted of kidnapping Sharon Baldeagle from Wyoming, and I think he's a suspect in some other Wyoming disappearances.

    This picture is kinda disturbing but not gruesome. http://www.co.clark.nv.us/coroner/unidentified/photos/unid_indv_80-1221.htm

    She rather favors http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/951dfnv.html

    Gerald Gallego evidently started killing in the summer of 1978 and (along with his wife Charlene) kidnapped/murdered two teenage girls from the Washoe County Fair Grounds (Reno/Sparks). He seems like a good candidate.

    Bump....
    I was just researching this and thought Sandra Kaye Butler and this unidentified might potentially match. The link above is out dated. What do you think?

    Possibly, the only thing I see is that the doe had a tatoo of an S on her arm and there is nothing noted about a tatoo on the missing girl. It is an S however and could stand for Sandra.

    That match looks good, ineedtoreadthenews. Both girls have thin eyebrows, similar hairlines that dip lower in the middle but aren't quite a widow's peak, and noses. Also, it kind of looks like both have very light freckles.

    There is that two year gap but there's also very little online about the circumstances of Butler's disappearance. If she had left voluntarily for those two years she may have gotten the tattoo herself.

    The Charley Project's page says some reports have her disappearing from a Reno Rodeo carnival while CP, Doe Network and NCMEC say she was last seen walking to the store across from her house.

    The tattoo could also have been a brand used in child prostitution.

    Thanks for looking. Do you think it should be submitted? I've never done anything like this before.

    New Momentum in this case...

    A shy lurker sent me the link to the Identifyus case number 46 that the rest of you had speculated on. I contacted the Detective in charge of Sandra's case and sent him the possible match. There are full dental xrays available for both Sandra and the UID, so the rule in/out should happen fairly quickly.

    He did mention that Gallego was getting some new attention in association with cases like Sandra's.

    I will post any information I receive regarding the possible match and many thanks to all of you and our shy lurker for bringing this case to the attention of those who can possibly answer what happened to this pretty child.

    Do you know if the dectective was aware of this UID already?

    BTW - the link to the UID is broken.

    the detective was NOT aware of the UID, so he was happy to have something to look at in the case.

    here is a new link, friend:

    That is a pretty striking similarity, especially around the nose.
