    I don't think, Andrea was well nourished, it's a nice way to say fat. Aundria would have needed to get a lot of junk food during one year to get fat. And really I don't picture a 15 year old say she's 25 so much, really when you're 15, 25 is close to grandmother lol. Also few teens would wear pink shoes, I think. I'd have cried if I had to go to school with pink shoes. Then after 23, you feel old and feel nostalgy of pink...

    Andrea's reported 5'4" and 122 pounds is hardly fat. (especially if she had large breasts). There is only a recorded 7 pounds difference between the 2 girls. I can gain 7 pounds in the week before Aunt Flo visits.

    Guess we'll just have to wait and see if LE looks into it.

    Yes, that's what I thought too but well nourrished means fat. Also I'm not sure the dental work would fit a 15 year old beside the sketch would be totally off if that was her. I'm thinking really she could have had some mental issues too, if her parents were well known she was probably not poor so why would she leave to CA without a cent? No reasonable 25 year old leaves for that kind of trip without taking money. And you'd think if she was looking for her birth family she'd have taken some identity papers, birth record...

    "Andrea" has a BMI of 20.9- that's normal. The only way she could be fat is if she was over 145 pounds (25+ BMI)

    Well, I haven't seen her myself but I do know that in ME's language well nourrished means fat, it's like strong builded (most often). Also really there aren't that many 14 year old who have "prior" orthodontics, generally they're current.

    KS - UID Female, Huntington Beach, 1990 "Andrea"

    Huntington Beach, Ca Jane Doe

    <modsnip>

    This unidentified young woman died around 10 pm on April 1, 1990 while crossing Pacific Coast Highway west of Newland, Huntington Beach, California. She died at the scene of a broken neck.

    She was Caucasian and estimated to be between 18 to 30 with a closer estimate of 17-21. She had brown hair and brown eyes, was 5'4" and 122 lbs. She had acne scars on her face, was well nourished and large breasted.

    When found she was wearing a pink sweater, a red long-sleeved shirt, a black cotton dress, fishnet stockings, a 40D bra and size 6 pink shoes. She had a ring made of human hair on her left ring finger.

    Dental information: PFM jackets on back of #7-10. Restorations #2,15,19,20. Missing #6,11,21,28-spaces closed. Missing wisdom teeth. Porcelain dental work. Prior orthodontics. Dental Chart

    After her sketch was published in a local newspaper, two men came forward saying they had met the victim a couple weeks before her death. Both said they only knew her by her first name, Andrea.

    According to them Andrea said she was from the East Coast.

    The first man said he had befriended her two weeks before the accident. Both had shared the same car while hitchhiking on Pacific Coast Highway. He was 100% positive that was the same person. He said Andrea told him she was adopted and trying to find her real family. He added that she told him she was from somewhere like Virginia but told a woman she was from New York. Though she claimed to be 25-26, he thought she appeared as young as 16.

    The second man said Andrea spent one night at his house. He said she had no place to stay at and no money for food or clothing so he let her use one bed room, fed her and gave her some money. Andrea then bought clothes at a Goodwill store, including a pair of shoes for $19.95 that she was wearing at the time of her death. He said she had told him her parents were pretty well-known but she didn't want to say who they were and that she had been adopted at a very young age. He also said that the ring made of hair she had was of her own hair that she had cut in front of him and then placed on her finger.

    I would definitely call it in-they have a lot to work with in terms of ID. When you call in Aundria, see if they have a print card on file from a Juvie record or anything-I bet that will be the fastest way to a match...

    Good Luck and let us know!

    The eye color is off, Aundria says green, the HB doe is brown. Ht/wt a little off too, but not by much. I don't see the skin problem in Aundria's pic, but could be retouched. I've been looking on my own at matches for people for quite awhile, but I'm new here at WS so I'm certainly no expert!! The eye color is the biggest reason I am not sure of the match. Great job on connecting the names!!

    She could be lying about having well known parents.

    A couple of investigators have now been assigned to the case. They are working on verifying the potential match.
