Of course, it is also possible that MontanaMan's timeline is just off too. Or maybe she got to Cali at age 26 but had been in Seattle earlier? IDK.

    In any event, these details are from what looks to be a news article that was cut and pasted to the Never Forget Me Facebook page. So because I'm not linking to an MSM article, take them with a grain of salt if you will. My only goal in sharing these details is in case they jog MontanaMan's memory in any way:

    Kuiper was one of two children.
    She was described by her family as smart, clever, attractive and persuasive. As a child, she loved to ice skate
    and her mother made all her costumes.
    Kuiper also loved art and often would create pictures for her parents, many of which they still have.
    She also struggled with mental health issues.
    Her parents said their only daughter suffered from manic depressive disorder and eventually started using
    drugs.
    Irish_Eyes........they could almost be the same person. Very similar looking except my Andrea obviously pronounced her name different I believe and she did actually have what I figured was Bipolar Order as my own father had it and I know the symptoms and actions to a T. My older brother is a Doctor of Psychology and he and I are both very good at helping people with mental illnesses. My Andrea was also an artist and painted very cool but often times dark and melancholy paintings. And my Andrea was also a very attractive and buxom girl, so she got a lot of attention and not all of it good. But, I believe my Andrea would have been younger at the time this accident happened or the age is off somehow, you're right. She was a bit darker skinned that Andrea Kuiper though too. I was very protective of her when we would hang out. I have a couple very special memories of my Andrea and I hope I can eventually find her again someday too. At least we now know that this is not her. So very close, but not her. I am so relieved that Andrea Kuiper has been identified, FINALLY! But, I am still quite torn up about my Andrea. Thanks for the post, Irish_Eyes! Love And Peace To All - MontanaMan

So about 47 to 50 now. None of us remember her telling us her last name except I seem to remember that it started with a B. And the Andrea I knew always pronounced her name as An-Dray-Uh and not Ann-Dree-A as it probably more common. I only remember that she often lived on the streets ( or that's what I was told by others when I first moved from Montana to Capital Hill in Seattle ). Then she began working for an elderly woman in Burien, Washington and then she had some money so she would take the bus up to Seattle and party with us. She often crashed at my place but would always have to leave early in the morning to get back to Burien. I think she may have been living with and taking care of this elderly woman, which I can see her doing, as she was a very nice and caring girl. You're right though, we have these friends that we loved and cared about and then everyone somehow goes their separate ways eventually and we lose contact which happened with all of us in the case of Andrea. Thanks again for thoughtful post, WyomingSkyAngel. Love and Peace Always - MontanaMan
    You're correct. Also according to the other friend her last name was a few, maybe 5 letters starting with a B or P; was an italian last name which is probably why you associated her with spaghetti.

    He also said she went to the college, had her own apartment at one time. He said she had gotten kicked out of college; I don't recall why. I'm not sure if she started caring for the elderly woman after being kicked out of college or where that fits in the time line

    The photos of Andrea Kuiper are over 5 years old. I wish they would have released a more recent photo of her. Sounds like your Andrea resembles Andrea K; are you sure they're not the same person? It sounds like there is a few years unaccounted for with Andrea K. She had the government job; then at some point went to CA. I'm not sure if we know the last time her parents actually saw her.

    Hi Roselvr!
    Yes, I can be absolutely positive they are not the same person. There are a few features that are the same but I would know my Andrea in second, no matter what her age now. I have someone who lives out in that area doing some sleuthing for me right now just to see if we can track her down anyway. Thanks for the thought Roselvr. I hope you're feeling better.

    Hi Keithcandy
    Welcome to Websleuths! Thank you for joining.
    This Jane Doe has already been positively identified as Andrew Kuiper. She was recently identified with fingerprints.
    There are several other cases that are open and could still use your help.Here are a few of my pet cases, if you're interested:
