    I wanted to post this person here, because I used to have an acquaintance with someone in this person's family. They were very upset by this disappearance. Judy was tall, so I am wondering if there are any Does out there that may fit her description?

    Do they know if Judith ever boarded the bus and got off in nyc? Is it possible she did get there and disappeared from that area?

    No one really knows. This is what I can tell you: I became acquainted with a relative of Judy's on another discussion forum totally unrelated to missing persons, etc. a few years ago. This person told me about Judith going missing because I had ties to law enforcement at that time. We've since lost touch but I've always remembered this story and was glad to see it online now.

    From what I remember, I believe Judith's family lived in Maryland. Judith had gone to live in NYC and was living in the East village at the time. The relative alluded to her MAYBE being involved in drugs or prostitution on a small scale while in NY. From what I remember being told, Judith came home (I think it was for Thanksgiving?) and then never made it back to her apt. in NY.

    Was a missing person report made in Maryland and NYC? Have you searched the unidentified females in both states? I would also check to see if she was ever incarcerated in NYC

    I believe it was filed in NY because that is where she lived. I have not had a chance to seach Does in NY and MD yet. I am hoping her height will help. Are incarceration records accessible to the public?

    This is a useful link. If you go to the different state web sites there are also other things you can look up besides missing people.

    http://www.maricopa.gov/Medex/Uniden...ful_Links.aspx

    I am sure there would be a way to find out if she was incarcerated

    It's only filed in NY. Baltimore city cold-case unit does know of the case, as well as the Medical Examiner's office...The MD Center for Missing Children also have a case file on her.

    http://www.facebook.com/groups/LookingForJudy/ is a facebook page dedicated to finding my sister. Any help anyone can provide will be most appreciated. It has been a long time, but she is not forgotten. My mother has a DNA sample available in Albany - and just yesterday I recommended to her that she use hair from Judy's baby book to provide a clean DNA sample of Judy. @rmf - was that me on fc or sj? thanks for keeping it alive.

    Maureen, please tell us as much as you can about the circumstances of your sisters disappearance - do you know what she was wearing or any jewelry, piercings or whatever? If she made it to NY? Anything you can think of that could help us figure out where she might be. Thanks!

    as stated correctly by previous poster - it was a family gathering for thanksgiving, 1980. It was a particularly emotionally charged thanksgiving - one sister was presenting her son, the first grandchild on that side of the family, mulatto, born out of wedlock in a baltimore catholic family. There were also 2 50th wedding anniversaries that year -neither of which my sisters were invited to attend. Judy Hitch-hiked to MN to attend one of them. My sister Judy was also uninvited to be a part of my brother's wedding the year before. Judy showed up in Ellicott City Maryland (at an uncle's home) with her bags of clothes (think those big honkin' army bags). She was more or less living on the street, though all the sites claim she was living in the Village. She was an apiring actress/singer - and had spent time at Covenant House. She had also been arrested for prostitution more than once. Her favorite haunt in the City was Studio 54.

    I cannot remember what she was wearing that day. I believe she did not have pierced ears. She did have a scar under her chin and one on her left arm. She had a discolored left central incisor (top), and had braces - but did not wear her retainer, so her bucked teeth and split between the two fronts came back.

    I am certain. CERTAIN I saw her at one of Reagan's innaugural parties in January 1981. I was home alone - and didn't think to call the Reagan library to get copies until 2005. The copies of all the TV coverage I received did not have her on any of them (6 hours or so worth of tape).

    Judy is 5'11", dark steel blue eyes, with yellow ring around the iris. She was known to hitch hike, often. She had long, thin (but shapely) athletic legs.

    As far as we know, she never made it back to NYC. I wish I could be of more help.

    My parents have been active over the years in Jane Doe's, as have I vis a vis the internet - as much as possible. I have also called, whenever possible, when there have been mass-murder cases - to see if there are any possibilities or jane doe's that match Judy's description. We just want closure - good or bad - closure.

    haven't been able to reply to this thread for a while, not sure why. I'm still looking - have added a facebook page, and am trying to get press to latch on to this also. I hate that there are so many jane / john does & so many people like me, desperately looking for answers. Why can't we connect ?

    Hugs, I'm sorry you can't find your sister. LE does their best and we try to do what we can, but so many records have been lost over the years, and it's such a big country, and there are so many missing...it's tragic.

    On the thread for one of our unidentified people, a woman who died in Arkansas, someone suggested your sister as a possible match. http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/81ufar.html

    Do you think it's a possibility?

    Here's the other woman's thread on WS: http://www.websleuths.com/forums/showthread.php?t=45612
