    I wonder why they think she left on her own if her purse and glasses were left behind?

    A while ago, I e-mailed Orange County, CA and asked if she could be the unidentified woman found in Dana Point on September 20, 1987. I still haven't heard back. I see a very strong resemblance between the two.

    No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it. - 1 Corinthians 10:13 (NIV)

    We are all one poor choice from being a subject on this forum. Think twice.

    I just clicked on the link provided above and it says that Ellen was ruled out. Hopefully, the bones that were just found are Ellen and her family can find some closure.

    The bones are about ten miles from Atlantic Avenue by a direct route: https://goo.gl/maps/5MQjb

    Zooming in, there's a minimart between Atlantic Ave and A1A that appears to face A1A. I wonder if that's where the 7-11 was in 1981.
    Opinions expressed are strictly my own (who else would they belong to???)

    I agree with the earlier comment; how could anyone list her as an endangered runaway? If she needed to wear glasses, I don't see how she could have gone to a movie after she went to get the money from her mother.

    It's sad that whoever would have taken her got a nearly 24 hour head start before she was reported missing. They could have gone almost anywhere by that time.

    I'd never heard of this case until I saw this - she disappeared three days after I was born, and within two hours of the location.

    That's so creepy.

    I wonder if anyone has looked into Roy Swafford. He is currently sitting on death row for the murder of 2 Volusia county woman one of which was abducted less then 3 miles from the movie theater that Ellen was going to and about 15 minutes from her home.

    The 2 murders he was convicted of was in 1981 & 1982.

    He is from Nashville and came down to Daytona each year for the Daytona 500. I know this does not fit the month for Ellen's disappearance but the locations are just to close to ignore.
