    TX - Harris County, Female 475UFTX, 1981 to: IA - Naomi Wilson, Cedar Rapids, 1981

    This is my first time posting on this site so please forgive me if i'm doing anything wrong. I have lurked on this site for a while and really appreciate what you do to help solve these cases.

    Anyway to the matter at hand. I would like some input on this possible match:

    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/w/wilson_naomi.html

    http://www.txdps.state.tx.us/mpch/Un...sp?id=U0408003

    To me there does seem to be a striking resemblance. Ms Wilson goes missing in April the body is found four months later. Age is within tolerance, height and weight slightly off but still pretty close. What do some of the more senior members here think about this? Thanks.

    Welcome to Websleuths, ruefulquixote.

    Good find!! - This is a pretty good possible for your first try. The facial resemblance is spot-on, and I see nothing that would raise any doubts.

    Here is the Doe page on the UID.
    http://www.doenetwork.org/cases/475uftx.html

    I can't find the case in NamUs, nor can I find any indication that the UID's DNA profile is in CODIS.

    I wish there was a little more on the circumstances of death to look at, but they don't say much about it.

    Here is the side-by-side.



    I think you should definitely call it in. The Texas Dept of Public Safety is one of the better-organized operations for handling tips from the public, so I am sure that you will find them very receptive. They have a team of analysts who are each assigned a caseload of UID cases, and I am sure that you will find it very simple to deal with them. (Unlike some places where they practically yawn at you over the phone.)

    If you need any help with the process, or don't feel comfortable calling it in, I or one of the other members would be glad to help you with it.

    While I had the analyst on the phone about the MickeyTatt woman, I asked her who the analyst was for this case. She told me that the analyst's name is Melanie Schramm.

    I didn't submit the case because I thought it would be preferable to allow ruefulquixote at least the opportunity to submit his/her own find if he/she wishes.

    Thank you very much CarlK90245. Go ahead and submit it, you seem to be a little more experienced at this than I.

    I have lived in Cedar Rapids (where the women is missing from) for fours years and I was born in 1981 (the year she went missing) so this missing persons case kind of stuck in my mind after I saw it. Then a month or two ago I saw the UID from Houston and knew I had to at least get someones opinion on it.

    Thank you for your assistance and please keep us updated with whatever comes of it.
