    Estimated age is off a little, but couldn't help but notice the hair pulled back. Height and weight are good. This young woman went missing two years before UID found. Possible??

    Susie, I think that's a pretty good match you found. Hopefully you've already submitted your find.

    I did submit the young woman as a possible. Hopefully, they will let me know one way or the other.

    Thank you Dark Shadows for bumping this. I'm sorry, but I have not heard anything from the contacts. My Dad passed away on New Year's Eve. He and my mother were married for 54 years, so I have been spending all my spare time with her. She is so lost. I will try to re-contact next week and see if there is anything new.

    My dearest Sugie,
    I am so very sorry that I missed your post from months ago. I am so very sorry for your loss. Please forgive me for not being on this thread in so many months.
    I called a reporter recently about this case and another case. She returned my phone call, but it was a voice message, I missed her call. I called back last week and left another message and then called again and she was out of the office. I am going to try again on monday and I hope that I can speak to her on the phone. I will post here when I am able to speak to her.

    So much Love and Respect,
    dark_shadows

    there are no details listed on the thread.

    the UID was a black female, estimated to be between 16-20 y.o., 5'7" and 125 lbs.

    no DNA, no fingerprints so we are left with dentals. according to the dental section "Teeth 8 AND 9 PR0TRUDE ANTERI0RLY". would that make her buck toothed?
