    Do you see any similarities between these two women?

    The facial structure of the reconstruction and the eyes look similar to the pictures posted of Rebecca?

    I wanted to let you know that I contacted the daughter before I posted her info and hope that she understands that we are not trying to upset her, just collaberating and trying to reach the answer, whatever that answer is.

    I'm sorry, I read it to say that "doe" was found in 98 and Rebecca went missing in 88. (A ten year gap in the dissappearance and when "doe" was found?) I sometimes read things wrong- just saw some similarities in appearance. Sorry!

    You are not wrong, I am. You had me thinking about it so I reread. And either you are right or my eyes are failing me. SO sorry. There should be a law against reading and responding while tired. Please forgive me for the mistake. Doe-1998, Gray-1988. As far as resembling each other, I do see some similarities but as I have made enough mistakes for this morning, I will reserve my comparisons for after I get some sleep.

    Again- Sorry.

    I hope you get some rest! (I've been reading far too much this weekend also, it wouldn't be out of the realm for me to read wrong.) Thanks for looking at the link, I am not very good at this comparing. Also thanks for the link to the "freep" new story above, it was very touching.

    Have a good and restful day!

    "Bossier City woman waits for DNA answers on long-missing mother's birthday"

    http://www.ktbs.com/story/29175027/b...thers-birthday


    When Bossier Parish authorities matched Carol Ann Cole's DNA to a decades-old cold case, they closed one investigation but inspired Williams to restart her own search. Within days of looking, Williams found unidentified remains from Kentucky that gave her hope.

    Her family gave DNA samples, with the help of the Bossier Sheriff's Office, nine weeks ago. Now that genetic material is in the hands of the National Missing and Unidentified Persons System for comparison.
