    Jane Doe Might Be Missing Mother
    Daughters Search Leads To Decades-Old Case
    February 14, 2008
    Rock Town Weekly
    BY Pete DeLea HARRISONBURG

    - Nancy Austin flipped through countless photos of unidentified bodies over the years in search of her mother who went missing in 1976.

    After years of research, Austin might have found out what happened to her mother, who vanished when she was 2 months old. A body that was found in Rockingham County nearly three decades ago in a wooded area fits the description.

    An artist's rendering of what she probably looked like was publicized following the discovery of the body. "I was searching online and came across the picture," said Austin, 31, of Keene, Texas.

    Hey Richard, I posted this also under Georgia Nolan's thread a few days ago. If they report anything here in KY, I'll post it here. I'll be in Harlan on Wednesday so I'll try to catch a copy of the newspaper and see what they say.

    This Doe could be one of probably many people but GJB seems like a good match - approximate date, age, height, etc. all add up - but unfortunately the victim is fairly "generic" in that there is not much that really stands out about her. Definitely there is a resemblance to the reconstruction and unless there is more to go on to encourage a rule out, she should be submitted.

    I am Gloria's daughter, Stephanie. Thank you so much for working on this. This isn't the first time that this Jane Doe has been brought to my attention. I had never seen the reconstruction with short blonde hair. Wow. I have recently had my DNA placed into CODIS. Perhaps there can be a DNA comparison. My contact is Detective Dana Potts, dpotts@ci.costa-mesa.ca.us, if you want to ever want to talk to him too. I will forward him this information. I can't think you enough. I also have a website for Gloria www.whereisgloriajean.com. She had an acquaintance in Virginia.
