    It says that Jane Doe was found with socks. One sock of Ambers was found though. I bet this is one they already ruled out, although I do not know.

    From the above article:
    A DNA sample was recently taken from Bonnie Barker. The DNA from a set of human remains recently found in Oklahoma was tested against Amber's, but a match was not made, Pickett said.
    Were the remains "recently found" and tested against this child the remains Angel4Alpha suggested?

    Mystery surrounds the recent death of Amber Barker's sister:

    Perry's mother, Bonnie Barker, doesn't think her daughter is a storm victim. The dead woman's sister, Debbie Villines, doesn't think so, either.

    In fact, Barker fears something far more sinister may have happened to Perry, who she said battled drugs and abusive men for most of her adult life.

    Just a month ago, Perry's ex-boyfriend “cut her throat and beat her up real bad,” Barker said.

    Now, her daughter is dead. Her body found in a shallow ditch surrounded by clothes.

    “She's not a storm victim,” Barker said. “I don't know if she committed suicide, I don't know if somebody killed her ... I don't know what happened.

    “But she didn't die in a storm.”
    And on the topic of Amber herself, according to another of her sisters:

    “The guy that's responsible never got charged, he got away with it,” she said. “He's still alive, too.”

    Villines declined to name the man, saying she has relayed her suspicions to homicide detectives, but that they declined to pursue the lead.

    “I told the detective who I thought did it — and he agreed,” she said. “But he never did anything about it.”
