    NamUs just added a photo to Linda Miller's previously No Photo casefile:

    Linda Ann Miller
    https://www.findthemissing.org/cases/11802/0



    She reportedly went to Guadalajara, Mexico with a friend and never returned. So assuming that's true, this would not be a match. The three-year lag is also somewhat of a problem.

    However, if we presume that she didn't really go to Mexico, this might be a decent possible.

    She is wearing a long-sleeved print blouse worn midriff style, just as did the jane doe. This is obviously not the same blouse, but Jane Doe did have similar fashion sense.

    And she has a very similar heart shaped facial structure, and straight hair well past the shoulders. Her age would be about right, and her height is within an inch.

    I just got off the phone with the detective in charge of Linda Miller's MP case. I had e-mailed him last night, asking him (1) whether her male friend CWK is still unaccounted for and listed in NCIC as a Missing Person, (2) whether there was a reasonable certainty that Linda and CWK actually did go to Guadalajara and didn't return, and (3) whether Linda had ever been compared to the Lopez Canyon Jane Doe.

    We had a very pleasant conversation, and the detective provided a lot of additional information that isn't indicated in Linda's NamUs casefile. He says that they tracked Linda's and CWK's movements to Guadalajara and Puerto Vallarta from their traveler's cheques, some of which were used and some which were not. They had been staying at a hotel which had burned down at that time that they were staying there. But Linda's family did not report her missing untill 2001. By then, San Rafael PD attempted to but was unable to obtain any information from the Mexican authorities regarding any unidentified remains that might have been found in the ashes of the hotel.

    He also said that Linda and CWK were very politically active, and were advocates for the plight of the farmers in Mexico. At the time, there was an active protest movement on behalf of the farmers and against the Mexican government. There is some speculation (though nothing more) that their disappearances were related to their political activities.

    As for CWK, his family reported him missing back then, but he was never entered into NCIC. At the time, MP cases were the responsibility of the jurisdiction where the MP last resided, and CWK lived in a different jurisdiction than Linda did. CWK's parents are now deceased, but he has siblings who are still alive, and he expects that they will file a MP report soon, and he will probably create a NamUs MP casefile for CWK.

    Regarding Lopez Canyon Jane Doe, he says that he will look into it despite the high probability that Linda and CWK never returned from Mexico.

    He is currently in the process of getting all of his 20 outstanding MP cases into NamUs. He was very complimentary of the NamUs system, says that it is far superior to NCIC.

    Denise Oliverson looks a lot like the woman found in Lopez Canyon, except she went missing from Grand Junction, CO in April 1975 and was thought to have been killed by Ted Bundy.

    Is it just me that saw a definite similarity between the sketch and a picture of Edna Christine Thorne? Wide forehead, slim nose, somewhat long and pointy chin, eyebrow shape not far off(and it says that the UID had plucked eyebrows), and they both have a quite small mouth(or at least I think Edna’s mouth would appear to be quite small when she’s not smiling).
    She went missing a year earlier from Pennsylvania, fits the lower age range, was probably abducted, so that could explain why she’s in a completely different part of the US than where she went missing, fits the weight range(why no mention of the UID’s height?), and it says that she has brown hair in the description.

    I also thought Sherry Jean Pickle was worth considering.
    She doesn't strike me as perfectly similar, but she has the same wide forehead and long but heart shaped face as the UID. Her eye area looks even more similar to the sketch than Edna's, even if her eyes are described as hazel instead of brown. She fits the weight range, too.

    She went missing in Long Beach, California, in 1972 aged 15, which would make her 19,5 years in April 1976. Exactly in the middle of the age range. She was believed to have hitchhiked to Los Angeles.

    The fractured ankle and scar makes me think that it's not a complete possibility, though.

    This Jane Doe reminds me of Patty Hearst:

    UID's Height

    NamUs is the only website that lists her height --
    Height (inches) 65, Measured
    It also lists her weight as being measured at 130 lbs.

    Oh, okay. I mostly looked at the Doe Network site(where height is not listed), and as I'm not from the US, I have to calculate it online for it to make sense to me if it's only listed in inches. So 5 foot 5, or 1,65 metres, right? Will edit the post now. Thanks for adding the info!

    EDIT: Couldn't fix my original post, so I'll just add my thoughts here.

    That means that Edna is a bit smaller than the UID, but as she disappeared at only fifteen years of age, she might have grown a few inches and put on weight.
    Sherry Lynn Pickle is also one inch shorter and weighs less, but I've seen cases with bigger discrepansies listed as possible matches before. Except for the scar on her foot, she fits the facts on the Doenetwork case listing well to me.

    I know that Phyllis Berry went missing from Texas in November 1975, but something about her reminded me of this UID. https://www.findthemissing.org/cases/2927/28/

    Made me think of Rodney Alcala. I wonder if this could be one of his victims? There was a pic of a girl in Purple Bell bottoms on his site but I think she was found alive? Does anyone know?

    Some people may consider me crazy, I say I'm just inspired.

    Yes - the purple bells girl from the Alcala photos was ID'd and is still alive. Prior to her coming forward, there was a lot of discussion that she might be this UID. Her clothing matched almost perfectly to the description of the UID's clothing.

    Phyllis Berry had gapped teeth. There is no mention of gapped teeth on the UID. Also, there is no mention that Phyllis had a crown on her upper front tooth.

    NamUs says
    Status: Dental information / charting is available and entered
    but didn't actually have anything viewable. Maybe I had just been staring at the computer for long.

    It's mentioned in her Charley Project page.
    http://www.charleyproject.org/cases/...y_phyllis.html

    She has a slight space between her upper front teeth.
    There's a dental chart on this Jane Doe's DoeNetwork page (click the word "Available" where it says "Dentals: Available).

    http://doenetwork.org/cases/587ufca.html

    The chart indicates several spaces between various lower teeth, but no mention of a gap between 8 & 9.

    Thanks! I hadn't checked her page on the Charley Project. This is a reminder to me to check multiple sources.

    Looking at the enlarged photo of Phyllis Berry, it looks like the gap is between 7 & 8 (like Arroyo Grande JD), not between 8 & 9. But she clearly is not AGJD.
